EASTENDERS fans are in for a treat as the new £87million set looks almost completed.
Perhaps it could become a Nightingale hospital.

You tell 'em. There was a time when a soap star would have been to scared to say boo to the Sun
Just made the mistake of reading the comments on this Sun article... Horrific.

Talking of the Sun and Python, it's worth revisiting their conduct during the height of the MacKenzie era, and the filming of Meaning of Life.

The paper ran a 'report' from the set, saying that a scene (the battle against the Zulus) had been interrupted by a storm, and John Cleese had exploded in anger, shouting at the mostly black extras "which one of you buggers did a rain dance?".

Cleese complained, saying that a) he never said that, and b) in the wake of major inner city riots and the febrile atmosphere of the early 80s, he did not want to be branded a racist. He challenged MacKenzie to find anyone else on the set who could corroborate the story, adding that he could see how it came about - reporter thinks of a funny situation, featuring Cleese getting all Basil Fawlty-style agitated and annoyed, makes up story to suit.

MacKenzie replied that he had absolute faith in his man's version of events, refusing to accept Cleese's challenge. Not the worst thing he did by a long chalk, but illustrative of their approach.

To be fair that does sound like the kind of thing Cleese would say.

The pubs are highly unlikely to be shut until Xmas and it seems like scaremongering to make Johnson look like a hero when he does reopen them.

Obviously, there will be restrictions (capacity, showing an App status at the door etc) but "pubs shut until Christmas" seems laughable and unworkable.

The Spanish are looking at June for reopening bars, with restrictions.

Tom Newton Dunn's off to Times Radio (whatever that is) - and they're bringing in Harry "Had his girlfriend swiped by the Prime Minister" Cole to be the new politics one at The Sun.

Christ.

Paul Staines has got a lot to answer for, what with Tom Harwood and the now-jobless Alex Wickham too.

Times Radio is intended to provide balance to those rotten Lefties at Radio 4.

Henry Cole has been appointed Political Editor at The S*n https://www.news.co.uk/2020/05/harry-co ... al-editor/
So expect more Johnson fluffing.
Newton Dunn had journalistic experience but Cole’s little more than a polemicist blogger like Bastani. Jeezus they’re scraping the bottom of the barrel.
