This was a sad little nothing of a programme from the BBC…clearly the BBC has decided that a scattergun approach to Brexit is the best chance to counter it by spreading as much anti-Brexit shrapnel around as possible in the hope that some will hit the target…
Cartoonist Gerald Scarfe introduces a Recycled special on the place that has obsessed us all summer long, so buckle up as we find out what is so different about Us and Them. With journeys to the continent and back to Westminster again combined with the powerful slicing of leading voices in the European debate – Tony Benn and Margaret Thatcher from 1975; Boris, Nigel and Dave from 2016. Plus the voices of leading historians, and comedians, attempting to make sense of the great European divide. Exhilarating radio you’ll not hear anywhere else.
As far as I could make out it was just a mishmash of nonsense that was almost entirely meaningless…but of course threaded through were little digs as the Brexiteers…the finale bringing that all together in a highly amusing edit of clips of Boris and Co trying to make them look foolish and stupid.
BBC agenda or just how the cards fell?
I note with interest the producer of the programme is Miles Warde….Miles eh? So BBC. But shouldn’t that be ‘Kilometres’ Warde? So much more continental.
