Jimmy contra mundum

A few observations on Uncle Jimmy's recent post:

1) If anyone can make sense of this observation about Channel 4's Jon Snow, please advise:

Some might wonder how come a broadcast journalist is able to hold down a job for 22 years, opine his political drops of pearly wisdom into the waiting and watching eyes and ears of tens of thousands, even millions over time, without any of the so afflicted chosen voting for those pearls he throws before … er … swine(?)

because last time I looked, nobody had to "vote" for journalists or their work. Perhaps Jimmy is looking ahead to the days after his longed-for revolution when all the journalists will be government appointees: but of course nobody will be voting for governments any more either.

2) Anyone wishing to read his inane Twitterage can do so on Twitter. Oh, I know it's his own blog and he can make a fool of himself if he wants to (actually he does so all the time regardless of his wishes in the matter) but does he really imagine that anyone in the blogosphere wants to read Jimmy and a few other Blair groupies directing their pointless little attacks at Jon Snow? Mind you, the self-important twit copied Tony Blair's office in on some of the tweets. (I can just imagine how they were received: "Oh Gawd, it's that KTBFPM loony again" "What's he up to now?" "Seems to be suggesting we should pay him for his efforts, I think". "What a plonker.")

3) So busy was our Jim puffing himself up and patting himself on the back over his sad outpourings that he managed to say exactly the opposite of what he intended (at least, to judge from all his previous posts on Tony Blair and wicked leftist media bias he did). Here's the highlighted warning with which he ends his piece:

Whatever they try to tell you – don’t ever, ever, EVER suspect that our media – entire channels and newspapers of it - are anything other than neutral and non-judgemental, especially when it comes to Tony Blair.

For once, Jimmy, you're quite right: "entire channels and newspapers" ARE neutral and non-judgemental when it comes to Tony Blair, and I certainly won't believe otherwise whatever YOU try to tell me.

(Aside: I wonder whether Jimmy will rush to correct the mistake (in which case, tough, the original stays here) or whether with his usual blustering buffoonery he will try to argue that it means exactly what he wants it to mean regardless of what he actually wrote. After all, that's what he did when I called him out on the the-opposite-of-left-wing-is-straight remark he made here n an exchange of comments at Peter Reynolds blog. Sadly I can't link to them as Peter had to take the stream down after receiving threats from Crazionists. A pity: it was fun watching Jimmy denying he'd made any comment about Murray's sexuality, accusing me of having confused the left-right and gay-straight axes, and finally telling me I was too stupid to understand his perfectly clear statement. Wish I had a copy of it.)

4) Oh, and he's got the headline spot on:

THE PLONKER Vs THE HONEST NEWS REPORTER

LOL.

Where writing comes from my relationship with words comes from and I think mine comes yes from reading of course but from my father who make the Magic Roundabout and wasn't an actor and who was said the BBC gave him these little French films and said would you right the scripts for them because we can't put them on in French and my father who hated the French and openly and it was David in fact to surge to know who created those puppets over there was never much warmth between them.
