HobNobGate - the video...



video courtesy of mish masher



So, the BBC have pulled from I Player last weeks This Week after receiving fifteen complaints about old Brillo's quip.

'Panic stricken' BBC executives removed all trace of the programme less than twenty four hours after it's transmission.

Let's all point and laugh at AlJaBeeba. So caught up in their own web of political correct nonsense they have worked themselves into a foaming lather over this.

How sad.

How predictable.

How very BBC.

The BBC advertise Poes Law at its most pathetic here, as they've become a fucking parody of everything that we make them out to be.

So what's Obama? An oreo?

Which was which? For the record...

...custard creams piss all over hobnobs!

Nothing wrong with that.

If he'd called her a Jaffa Cake, fuck me there'd be trouble!

So that was Portillo? I thought it was Max Headroom. Always get those two confused.

There was a lot of screeching over calling the black wench 'hobnob' but I have not seen a single complaint about calling Max Portillo a custard creme. I mean, that's insulting. It's just an anaemic Bourbon biscuit filled with squishy and unhealthy mush.

Oh. Right. No cause for complaint then.

Worse if he'd have called the fat cow an Empire Biscuit filled with Robertson's Rasberry Jam with a free Golliwog on every jar!

The Beeb might have pulled the clip but its all over the interweb.
I think " Chocolate Hobnob " is a bit unfair on poor old Diane, the black communitys own " Coconut " serves perfectly well.

Who cares really? I prefer to look behind the words in order to gauge the intent. There was no malice behind Neil's words, as there very rarely ever is. Therefore he has no case to answer.

I'd argue that Andrew Neil should be given title to say whatever he wants, when he wants, in that interestingly young-sounding voice of his.

GK, you are right of course.
