He gave you that look because you know what he meant and was being pedantic. In other words, you're doing the thing again.

I see what happened. I clicked on the wrong part of the post. It took me straight to his account, not the thread in question.

That's what I get for trying to post on a super-small text page.

Well the account is deleted now so...
 
The hell? Wonder why they did that? Maybe getting sued for the "idiot son" and all that?
Reportedly the last tweet from the now-deleted account:

So because people are stupid we can't have entertaining nice things. (Seems as though the original was a send-up, but people got all huffy about it regardless.) A different person on twitter (@ PunkProfStories) has taken up the thread and continued the saga.
 
Eh. Comedy - and public TV in general - are mostly made by artistic types, who usually have a higher education, and a far more left than center political view than the average person. Statistical fact, proven a million times over. Just like journalists, as a group, tend to be further left than average. Nothing wrong with either.
The problems begin when politicians feel the need to regulat what is "good" or "bad" art or comedy. it's a dangerous slippery slope...But one where the first steps make some sense - comedians/programmers need to be aware of it and balance it out a bit.
 
Boris Johnson built his early political career off the back of his appearances on Have I Got News For You. Will that be one of the left-wing comedy shows to be axed?
 
You guys have really been slacking over here.

Boris has been cooking up a new law that totally shits on the agreement he actually managed to get with the EU, esp. concerning NI.

It's like they're trying to get the worst possible outcome!

 
Yeah, trying to write a law while literally saying it'll go against international law and treaties is a great way of getting more sympathy from Europe.
No, wait, dictators. That's who I meant to say. Dictators will live the crooked reasoning of "or internal laws can circumvent or exclude parts of international law we agreed to".
