It cannot be said often enough: Biased BBC is not just a peerless advocate of quality journalism, it's also a hothouse of emerging writing talent. Take English Pensioner, a man who can find new things to complain about, even in programmes meant for toddlers.
I don't know about bias, but the BBC gets my prize for crass stupidity.
They'll treasure it.
I was sitting with my grandson watching a video of the children's programme "Waybuloo" which I had recorded a few adys earlier.
I know the feeling. You sit down to watch Mad Men and the brats have recorded Skins instead. Damn you, Sky Box.
To my surprise, one scene showed a large banner, exactly like the flag used by the Japanese Military during WW2.
And exactly like a childish drawing of the sun. As it happens.
I was taken by surprise,
Exactly how eventful is your life?
but surely it would have really upset an ex-POW if he had seen it.
The effect might just have been softened by the cute lilac bunny rabbit doing her exercises amid the emerald countryside and pretty flowers.
I just imagine the outcry if a swastike design (which dates back to ancient Greece) had been used!
Indeed. But it wasn't.

Let's go see. Thursday, 18 February: I am a firm believer in assassination
If I were the lilac bunny, I'd be looking a little bit nervous.
