    BBC’s Beastly Begum-Symp – More Awful Than Maitlis?

    Looking as unappealing as ever, a lack of allure enhanced by her bizarre big glasses, which a former colleague of mine, who was inexplicably a devout Coronation Street fan, would undoubtedly have derided as ‘Deirdre Barlow Specs…’



    ….that ghastly erstwhile posh-girl-independent-school lefty creepette Emma Barnett…yes, her..


    …held court on BBC’s News Night on Saturday afternoon ( that’s when we see it in Jakarta) – no sign of the arrogant Maitlis!

    I’m not sure which of the two shrews is more off-putting.

    Barnett is a known feminut, apparently a paid-up member of the Women’s Equality Party, which is possibly, at least partly, an overly dramatic reaction to her father’s imprisonment for running brothels.

    See wikipedia – Ian Barnett was jailed for three years and eight months in 2008 after admitting to keeping a string of brothels, controlling prostitution and conspiracy to control brothels.

    But let’s stick to the missing Maitlis. 

    Or did I miss her – I was out front in the late sun, reading for a while, still wading through that hefty biography of Graham Greene.

    No matter!

    Maitlis has never impressed, but her arrogance – sheer uppity insolence – reached new levels today, as reported…

    Emily Maitlis suggests she ‘deserves more respect’ from BBC bosses

    The Newsnight presenter is said to be furious with management over her Dominic Cummings monologue   … https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2020/05/29/emily-maitlis-suggests-deserves-respect-bbc-bosses/

    …and she really needs to be fired.

    If she cannot get her swollen head around the fact that she is a mere employee, and employees do what they are told by management or find a different job, then the latter option is the only appropriate one.

      If Maitlis wants a soap-box to attack other people, she can go to Hyde Park Corner and take her chances among the other eccentrics.
      The BBC is not hers to use. She is just a servant, not entitled to lecture her masters.
      Nice one by the way, about Barnett’s Barlow-glasses. I doubt there’s anything she could wear that would improve her looks.
      As all my rightwing male-chauvinist colleagues here agreed, she’s a real dog, as well as a lefty bitch!
