Satan Smokes. In The Vatican. Apparently.

There are dark forces at work in these troubled times, and Biased BBC's Witchfinder General David Vance knows what they are. Only recently, he was warning us about Zombies in British life. Today, he brings sulphurous news of the cloven-hoofed Beast. Cue Tubular Bells:

Sex abuse scandals in the Roman Catholic Church are proof that that "the Devil is at work inside the Vatican",

That's a good one. Takes the pressure off the humans, anyway.

according to the Holy See's chief exorcist.

A person we take with enormous seriousness.

Father Gabriele Amorth, 85, who has been the Vatican's chief exorcist for 25 years

He must know what he's doing, then.

and says he has dealt with 70,000 cases of demonic possession,


said that the consequences of satanic infiltration included power struggles at the Vatican


as well as "cardinals who do not believe in Jesus, and bishops who are linked to the Demon".

Uh huh.

He added: "When one speaks of 'the smoke of Satan' [a phrase coined by Pope Paul VI in 1972] in the holy rooms, it is all true

Nicorette could have helped with that.

– including these latest stories of violence and paedophilia."

Hello? Carabinieri? The man you seek is a Mr. Beelzebub….

Well, is he right?

I should say so and I'm also sure the Nigerian oil minister's money will be in my bank account any day now. Where can I buy striped paint, by the way? The gaffer says I should fetch some.

I think in a way he is.

(Cough) Indeed. (Cough)

Those of us who hold the Christian faith understand that Satan IS everywhere,

That would be Simon Cowell. Or maybe Piers Morgan. Easily confused.

the Bible tells us so.

It's also very helpful on the subject of masturbation, sacrifice and the problem of menstruating women. From memory.

This is his realm,

I'm sure. Did Mike Oldfield ever do anything else?

we are all fallen creatures open to temptation,

The Orchestral Version. Bit pointless, wasn't it?

and that is why we need to turn to Christ.

May be your best bet come Election Day, David.

Scientific note: Mr Vance's posting scores 7.3 Noeledmunds on the Brass Eye Credulousness Scale.

Bambi Loves Rottweilers

Being a bias-hunter carries with it certain duties: Keeping up with politics, broadcasting issues, and how the two interact, for example. Good to see that the industrious Biased BBC commentator Cassandra King is at the top of her game just now:

The BBC hardtalk charade interviewed conservative front bench spokesperson for culture Jeremy Hunt,

Excellent. The Tories' man on the front line of broadcasting policy.


Good to see that Biased BBC keeps up with politics.

yeah me too!

Especially broadcasting politics.

It was Ashcroft ad nauseum with a Hunt out of his depth and looking llike Bambi faced by a rottweiler in a bad mood.

Odd for an interviewer to put the Tories' big problem of the week to a front-bencher. Even odder that the shadow minister should find it hard to deal with.

Mr Hunt is a big fan of the BBC it seems,

You don't...

its a national institution


and he seems to labour under the BBC peddled myth that we all love and cherish the BBC,

…that rational people value the BBC?

a Tory fawning and waxing lyrical

Wait a minute: He was a helpless creature about to be devoured by a devil-dog a second ago.

about a BBC that hates and despises the entire right wing and the Tories in particular

Or. Possibly. Not.

certainly rings alarm bells with me.

Could be reality dawning. Perhaps?

To see a so called Tory doe eyed and defensive and unsure of his own position was sad to see but indicative of Camerons Tory party, frightened rabbits with lots to hide, bumbling fools who appear to be nothing more than lightweight puppets with all the substance of a morning mist!

Can we stick to a single metaphor here? I'm happy with Bambi being best friends with Rottweilers.

You just know that if the Tory leadership are intent on creeping to the BBC there is something very very wrong about the Tory leadership.

There again, Cassandra, you're intending to support the BNP. Whose leaders' relationship with The BBC you can more readily savour.

As can the rest of us.

Quality Journalism 2010: Death By Gay Jollies

If there's one thing Biased BBC teaches us, it's that The BBC fails, day after dumbed-down day, to deliver quality journalism. What has happened to its mission to inform and to educate the licence-paying public?

Today, another major failing has been exposed by Biased BBC vigilance. Why oh why is the Beeb ignoring its duty to explain, er, salacious speculation about the death of a daytime telly presenter?

The gnomic ap-w kicks the debate off. How come the BBC has devoted precious time to mark the passing of Michael Foot?

it's all rather overshadowed the death of the BBC presenter Kristian Digby,

Yeah. Why worry about a leading orator, writer, newspaper editor and former Leader of the Opposition when the presenter of House Swap and Buy It, Sell It, Bank It has died?

Digby, who has died in "unexplained" circumstances

I have a feeling that HM Coroner will be enlightening us before long...

a matter of days after gay killer Ray Gosling is released on police bail.

A non-sequitur of elegant proportions. What do you think, Millie Tant?

There's a good example of where the great broadcaster has failed to inform us - about how this man died.

Glad you spoke up. I've been losing sleep worrying about this.

So the BBC knows this information but has chosen to censor it.

Bastards. They've been ignoring Paris Hilton's sex tapes, Lindsay Lohan's eating issues and Kerry Katona's love life, too. What's wrong with them?

Why do they think it is all right for them to know this and for us not to know it? How can that be right?

Exactly. Lord Reith would be turning in his grave over a failure like this.

Who is in charge of them and what they should be allowed to know? Who privileged them to hold this information that is apparently too dangerous for us to know. If it is so dangerous, toxic or corrosive to us that it must be withheld, what effect does possessing it have on them? I think we should be told.

Not only that: Where is the in-depth analysis of minor actresses' wardrobe malfunctions and Posh Spice's footwear options that we have a right to expect from a top-quality news provider?

And all of the above questions are leaving aside the fact that we know it anyway! Cos we've been told by the Informative Media. It's all over the b..... shop!

Which shop? Does the b…. shop sell things for bees?

And guess what...we survived this knowledge and the world is still turning. But the BBC is still censoring. Surprised How daft can you get?

Not as daft as that smiley, for sure. Robert de Niro tribute act Travis Bickle gets to the heart of the story.

By "unexplained" they mean getting his gay jollies off.

But who put them on in the first place?

BBC presenters are snuffing themselves at a fair old rate of knots these days. They need to get some more rewarding past-times rather than auto-asphyxiation and columbian marching powder.

Could be worse. They could be posting on Biased BBC.

Don't Touch That Light Switch.

Anyone who thinks it's easy sitting in judgement on The BBC and its terrifying power need only consider the case of inveterate bias-spotter Roland Deschain. Roland's net-name is a homage to a fictional gunslinger. Seems like he's fixing to sort out a messa trouble down the schoolhouse. Sheee-it.

It's depressing.

That's what Biased BBC is here for. To depress us all.

Only today I find that my daughter is expected to learn a passage for her school assembly urging us to turn our lights out for an hour...

Slippery slope. She'll be asking you to turn the heating down a gnat's, next.

to support the WWF…

Hideous. Who's its shit-stirring president again? Billy Bragg? Or Polly Toynbee? Oh… it's HRH Princess Alexandra.

and show we "care about climate change".

Cos we don't. End of.

And when I point out to her that it may be a load of claptrap, she stomps off in the huff.

It's not too late to disinherit her. She doesn't deserve you.

I wonder how much indoctrination has gone on before I've found out about it.

Simple test: Does she offer to walk to the shops rather than demand a lift? If yes, you've lost her. For good.

I will of course take it up with the school,

Perhaps you could suggest they leave their lights on for an hour longer than usual. Take a stand for common sense.

but sometimes you feel you're just pissing in the wind.

You could leave your lights on all the time. That would teach them.
