Am I hallucinating? Are any of you lot seeing this too? Right now Jeremy Vine is wearing a Harry Hill shirt and dancing to hip-hop next to a holographic Menzies Campbell. The caption behind him reads “MING’S BLING”. Has BBC Election Special turned into The Day Today?
UPDATE: Iain Duncan Smith has just said of the poorest voters he’s been talking to: “Real real problems of drug and alcohol abuse—and I’m in all that right now.”
It’s excruciating, but not for the reasons I was afraid of at the start of the evening.
rough night at the count in my boss’s constituency, but came home just in time to see IDS on the telly damning Dave Cam with very faint praise and generally talking a real load of shit.
cheered me up no end!
“Ming’s Bling” reminds me of Miri Ben-Ari
who you can listen to here
referring to her blinged violin.
it must have been a long night for Jeremy, who is still at it on BBC News24 at 8am this morning. I’ve just been watching him play a virtual game of tennis with a giant stock footage Tony Blair, with the ball passing over the net at the heights of historic poll ratings.
Mrs & me have often found ourselves remarking on this trend, which seems to have really sped up over the last couple of months – News24 is starting to totally surpass The Day Today, both in terms of over-excited news-reading and in ridiculous CGI. Chris Morris’ genius IRA anti-bomb-dog spray graphic looks positively mundane these days.
I was gobsmacked too. And the tennis thing…! Chartjunk on crack. The BBC election team urgently needs to read Edward Tufte – it may already be too late.

Missed the Harry Hill moment, but I think I hallucinated a Jeremy Vine-Ali G mash-up.
