Channel 4's commissioning editor has just popped up, meerkat style with that news, I should think.

I can't see BBC4 surviving under this regime I'm afraid. They'll be determined to turn the whole BBC into a clone of ITV2.

Personally, I'm really looking forward to a Littlejohn scripted sit-com starring Lozza Fox and Jim Davison........is that how this balance thingy works?

Once again, the absence of creative people on the right in the arts is not down to a conspiracy, but because they just don't exist in big numbers.

Wheel on as many right wing comedians as you can, nobody will laugh unless they're actually funny. And studio audiences tend to be young, metropolitan and left leaning.

My view of Lee Hurst; it isn't his hands he'll be rubbing

I'm hilariously imagining.

Commissar (Fresh off TV Licensing detector van): Vat is your name?
Jim: Don't tell 'im Laurence.
Laurence: Pratfalls through gap in his own credibility.
