Question Time tonight comes from Westminster Hall. On the panel tonight we have Home Secretary Theresa May, Ed “Blinky” Balls, sanctimonious old bat Shirley Williams, Peter Hitchens and vegan, ‘poet’, Green Party nutter and Animal Liberation Front terrorist supporting Benjamin Zephaniah.

Wiki Editing Fun – Theresa May

October 31, 2011 at 6:07 pm

Somebody has got their crayons out and defaced the wiki page of the UK Home Secretary. It’ll be gone in a few minutes…but a bit of a laugh anyway. She became a national laughing stock when, at the Conservative Party conference, she said “I’m not making this up” and then promptly […]

TheEye is back in the office, the sun is in the sky and inevitably a man’s thoughts turn to…the legality of skydiving sex. Indeed. Local police in Taft, California. were called to a local high school last week after a video started doing the rounds, so to speak, on campus. […]

9/11 BBC Question Time: The Video

October 15, 2011 at 5:25 am

Cross-Posted from the Biased-BBC blog Many of us watched the Question Time Special immediately following the 9/11 atrocity in utter disbelief as it took a rabid and disgusting anti-American line. The former US ambassador to Britain, Philip Lader, was almost reduced to tears on the panel as the audience shouted […]
