That's Not The BBC TV I Was Thinking Of

Our completely impartial national broadcaster brings us this:
n an effort to support and positively address transgender roles on mainstream comedy television shows, the BBC has teamed up with artist collective Trans Comedy to bestow upon upcoming writers the Trans Comedy Award. Specifically BBC Writersroom, an ongoing program that helps scribes develop projects for the BBC, is offering talented writers up to £5,000 (about $8,000) to use toward producing a television pilot.
Well, they've certainly got the parody thing covered, albeit probably not in the way they were intending.

Hey, it's a free country, so if some guys want to get together to eat, drink and be Mary, why not? I'm just not sure why licence payers should be expected to pay for it, and especially so when the organisation that wants to 'positively address transgender roles' steadfastly refuses to call the guy with a bomb vest a 'terrorist' in the name of bogus objectivity.

The MSM: Shagging A Dead Horse

The MSM has been waiting years to use the phrases 'UKIP official' and 'BNP supporter' in the same sentence but now they get the chance, they've decided he's the good guy.

 Hmmmm..... a guy could almost think the MSM's 24-7 Hitler Watch round UKIP headquarters was not, in fact, inspired by a genuine fear of a Forth Reich after all. Meanwhile, we have further proof that there is no better way to go from a Nasty Nazi to a Romantic Rebel than to denounce real conservatives. Call it the Portillo Effect.

Not to give aid and comfort to the enemy, but I'm not sure the left has thought this all out. This guy may just have exposed the hollowness of their position.

The idea, I think, is to depict the right as a bunch of uptight squares who want to hash everyone's mellow. It's true this dude wants to throw off all those pesky restrictions on gay marriage but he also wants to go the whole hog and bang pretty much anything that moves, or at least used to move.

Hey, why not? If you're going to go blank slate, go big. On the plus side, incest means you don't have to bother with that same old argument every year about whose parents to have Christmas Dinner with. Ditto, necrophilia is surely just like married sex, only more so. As for the bestiality, at least you can domesticate some animals, which is more than anyone's ever managed with red heads. Still, this does kind of beg the question. Isn't all this pretty much what traditionalists have been saying is the problem with the whole marriage as an Etch-A-Sketch thing?

Conservatives support traditional morality because it's tried and tested. This guy wants to go the other way and let his freak flag fly. At least he's consistent. Meanwhile, liberals always claim to defend traditional morality, except for the bits they're attacking right now, but never can quite say what differentiates them from the guys asking 'was that good for ewe'?

Markers of No Appearance

This is bizarre!

Burglars leaving marks for each other? Who knew Lefty and Fingers had such a trade union spirit? It's not like there's a whole community of felons travelling round the country, is there?
