Ritchie didn\’t get on the Today Programme

Awww

Having briefed Today they asked me to do the programme at 8.35am today. I agreed.

And then a while later they rang to say they’d changed their minds. I presumed the story had been dropped, but no, they said they’d found someone else to comment.

  1. To be fair, the BBC are forever behaving like shits when it comes to lining people up and then letting them down.

  2. Some tax accountant from Saffery Champness.

    LMAO at how put out Murphy is. Honestly, he seems close to tears

  3. It does occur he’s be a shoo-in for the weather forecast. He’s a natural successor to Michael Fish.

  4. @Steve:

    “Maybe like BTN in V for Vendetta.”.

    Let me assure you that Ritchie is no Lewis Prothero. He has neither the passion, belief, guile, intelligence or balls of Lewis Prothero.

    Ritchie is just a dreadful little Marxist apparatchik funded by the taxman’s main union. More like Gr

    Ritchie is just a dreadful little Marxist apparatchik funded by the taxman’s main union. More like Grima Wormtongue from Lord of the Rings without the final redemption.

    You mean soembody who might actually know what they’re talking about.

  7. The Thought Gang

    They had a lady from UKUncut who was helpful. She said that we don’t want a fuzzy tax system.. everyone should know the rules and stick to them.

    That’s a bit of a blow to the ‘morality’ basis of taxation, then.

  8. But they do that all the time. It’s practically how the Today programme works.

    I mean he should be glad they didn’t phone him when he was in the car park to drop him, which I have known to be done.

    And yes, it is a shitty thing to do, but it doesn’t stop people coming back for more, because it;s the Today programme. They can pretty much do what they want.

  9. If he is not good enough for the today programme mayhap he could go see Brian Ingliss with a view to getting on “All our Yesterdays” instead.

    Yes, he should definitely go see Brian Ingliss.

    Maybe HIGNFY’s tub of lard is still in a props department cupboard somewhere?
