Twat Of The Month Award – BBCs John Simpson

BBC Licence Fee deal like Waterboarding

From time to time there is someone in the world of politics, media or warming alarmism that really makes a complete twat of themselves, not on a every day scale but total and utter twatishness on a Gordon Brown or 10:10 scale.

November is going to be a month of fierce competition for the Twat of the Month award, with the US mid term elections and the COP16 hooker fest in Cancun everyone from Nancy Pelosi, Chris Huhne to Al Gore could be in the frame.

But then a reasonably well known journalist used to living off the tax payer makes a play with a statement so Twatish that several twats have downgraded themselves to village idiot, so embarrassed are they.

John Simpson is offended that the BBC should have to live in the real world and not bleed us dry every year with an ever increasing television tax

“Our income will shrink year on year for seven long years, by amounts that are unknown because we can’t tell how high inflation will be over that period of time.

It’ll be like waterboarding. As our head is pulled out of the bath, we’ll be so desperate that we can’t be certain what compromises and deals we might be tempted to make. We will be at the government’s mercy.”

A much greater talent and intellect than Simpson had this to say on the Television Tax:

“The idea of a tax on the ownership of a television belongs in the 1950s. Why not tax people for owning a washing machine to fund the manufacture of Persil?”,
