On January 7th, BBC Northern Ireland broke an extraordinary story about the love life and dodgy business dealings of the bible-spouting DUP MP Iris Robinson, wife of Ulster's First Minister, Peter Robinson. Biased BBC supremo (and diehard unionist) David Vance pondered this scoop and pronounced it good. For a while, at least...
I refer to the BBC "Spotlight" programme concerning Peter and Irish Robinson. To summarise for those readers who did not see it… Mrs Robinson is absolutely finished politically. She should resign forthwith … Mr Robinson needs to explain why he did not fulfil his lawful obligations …
Translation: Gotcha! The BBC have just shafted raised important questions about one of my deadliest political rivals.
Last night, BBC Northern Ireland ran a very important "Spotlight" programme which raises fundamental questions concerning the behaviour of Northern Ireland's leading political dynasty - the Robinson family.
Translation: I looooovvvve the BBC Spotlight programme.
This is causing seismic tremors in the local political topography and I think the BBC should be congratulated on finally producing a programme that has the consequence of challenging the political status quo.
Translation: Political opportunity rings louder than the Liberty Bell. And all thanks to the Beeb! Fuck me!
As I say, there are many issues flowing from this and some of these may limit my time here in the days ahead.....interesting times, folks!
Translation: If that twat Peter Robinson thinks I won't be taking advantage of this BBC-inspired calamity, he's got another think coming…
The following has gone out to the media so I want to share with you all. This is the beginning. TUV ANNOUNCES SIGNIFICANT NEW RECRUIT
Translation: Ahem... Me! David Vance! Oh, yes indeed!
Traditional Unionist Voice is pleased to announce that experienced political commentator and activist, David Vance has joined the party. A County Down businessman, who was at one time was Deputy Leader of the UKUP, Mr Vance is well known for his robust Unionist views as the man who runs the top political blog, ‘A Tangled Web’.
Translation: Could there be a better time to jump aboard a rival Unionist party? Thanks, BBC!
“If, on the other hand, the DUP is genuinely behind Mr Robinson, then they are more out of touch with public opinion than I appreciated. The damage done to the Robinson brand is transferred to the DUP brand by such unequivocal support.”
Translation: Make no mistake - The BBC have skewered the Robinsons, and we here at TUV believe everything they say.
I wonder if the prevalence of homosexuality at the beeb explains why Iris Robinson got such a thorough and persistent going over from the beeb, given the remarks she had made about homosexuality being an abomination. I acknowledge that the beeb's longstanding support of sinn fein plays into this as well - it's a win win for the beeb.
Translation: Never mind the facts. We at Biased BBC should be complaining that the spiteful gays at the BBC have done away with that fine, upstanding Christian bigot hypocrite moralist Mrs Robinson. Plus everyone at the BBC also loves the IRA.
Gordon. Yes, that's an interesting line of thought.
Translation: Eleven days is a long time in politics. And even longer in BBC-baiting. Now that I've milked the Robinsons' embarrassment, I quite fancy twatting the BBC with a gay/IRA conspiracy theory...
