Watching the trailers last night for the forthcoming seasonal delights on the Beeb, I came across something that was genuinely unpleasant – far more so than anything dreamed up by Terence Fisher and the other fevered minds at Bray Studios [home of Hammer Films] in the 1960s, writes the Beast.
It was for a celebrity edition of University Challenge, and one of the faces looked like that of Iain Duncan Smith.
This is genuinely grotesque. Christmas is traditionally a time of peace and goodwill to all, and yet there’s precious little of that on display with IDS and his actions. This is the politician, who has cut benefits and imposed sanctions to the point where claimants have actually died of cold and starvation on Britain’s streets, in their homes, or taken their lives through desperation. This is the politicians, who has lied and lied again about the effects of his policies to parliament. Not only that, but he is also personally treacherous and utterly without honour.
Yes, it seems the BBC is planning a season of video nasties for Christmas. For more from the Beast’s article, give it a visit.
