The authentic voice of the BBC


COULD anything more clearly illuminate the self-centredness of the BBC’s apparatchiks than this pensée from Radio 4 Today host Justin Webb in yesterday’s i newspaper:

‘I have been walking in Camberwell in South London where I live, trying to avoid the crowds of photographers around the flat where Boris Johnson and his girlfriend had that famous row. I wore sunglasses and took my labradoodle [what else?!] on a detour so that we wouldn’t be pictured in any awkward proximity to the scene.’

Sorry, Justin, but nobody’s actually looking at you and if they did they wouldn’t recognise you anyway.
