People’s Republican State Television

Having mounted an armed coup against the treacherous enemy pigdogs of the People’s Republic carried out protracted negotiations with our most honourable and wise comrades in the media, we are delighted to announce our takeover of BBC One. The People’s Republic will be available in live televisual form for one night only on Thursday 1st May from 11.35pm onwards at each and every half-hour or thereabouts. Free pizza and beer will be available.*

Visit Lib Dem Voice for further details. In the meantime, a small competition:

What should the Head of State say/do when the presenter tries to suggest to her that the Cleggster’s interview with Piers Moron Morgan marked a great and terrible watershed in the history of the Liberal Democrat party and a turning point in the political mores of our times? (Answers should use no more than eighteen rude sweary words per square metre and should not assume the close proximity of the free pizza as this cannot be guaranteed, although reference to glasses of water is permitted).

*To me.


  1. “nobody really cares about that but the media, you know, and your increasingly implausible sanctimoniousness does not play well with the general public.”

    See, no swearing at all!

  2. egads !! gadzooks !! Alix Mortimer is a GIRL !

    Shock ! Horror ! Probe !! Take that excessive punctuation and deal with it…

  3. “Alix Mortimer is a GIRL !”

    So my mother keeps telling me… Bedd Gelert, I believe, is a dead Welsh dog, non? What a diverting thought that dead Welsh dogs have an afterlife in political cyberspace.

  4. Looking forward to watching it. I found your blog via the BBC’s online coverage of tonight’s BBC TV coverage, and have enjoyed it enough not to do any real work for the last 3 hours. Thanks!

  5. Oh, the question. Don’t know, but rolling of eyes at the least should be involved. Possibly gnashing of teeth as well.
