Fresh from building a case against the bias in a BBC correspondent's glinting eyes, Biased BBC breaks more exciting ground by detecting unrestrained man-on-man lust during a stroppy encounter between Lord Mandelson and Evan Davis on Today. The man with the gaydar ears was the redoubtable bias-hunter Umbongo:
The Davis-Mandelson interview was marked by the stomach-churning sparkiness of two gays enjoying a bit of a verbal nuzzle.
Well, it was a radio show. They've got to play it up a bit so we know what's going on.
Mandelson's appeal to Davis "with all love and respect" to be allowed to carry on uninterrupted with Labour propaganda quite upset my breakfast.
Hit them where it hurts. Ofcom Code, Section 49 viii: Compensation payments for involuntary loss of appetite, subsection (b) - gay stuff at breakfast time.
It reminded me of a similar (though far less politically charged) interview between Russell Harty and Dirk Bogarde
What a big memory you have. Harty died 21 years ago
both of whom couldn't wait to get off-screen and into the green room to share mutual revelations.
Is it remotely possible that you are fantasising this?
This is not anti-gay:
Hadn't crossed my mind. Really.
had the interview been between a man and a woman so obviously sexually attracted to one another, it would have been just as distasteful.
But could you force the All Bran down amid the grunts and the sighs?
However, the mutual attraction appeared to prevent the usually incisive Davis from pursuing his political prey with the thoroughness such an interview demands.
A new campaign slogan: No Gay Two-Ways On Today. Hooray!
