I thought people on here loved the BBC

He was laying into its right-wing politics on Twitter.
And immigration has never affected my life."
Well, no shit.
"Hand your cv into every shop and restaurant on the high st and every job agency you fucking twat. #NickAndMargaret"
Moker goes free market
might watch that later today
thought it was very good, watched 2/3 episodes so far. It doesn't exactly blow your mind but it is an interesting and engaging watch
which I feel like sean has tried with DiS.
build a broken website, so when people start to get bored, you just lure them in with a shiny new one that's actually just as bad.
Is it because we are knackered old men, or because bees are really soporific?
It was a good bee programme. Learned some things about bees.
It's work oriented populist bourgeouise rubbish. It's trying extremely hard to keep everyone happy so they've gagged themselves, might as well just have gotten a bunch of folks with different accents to repeat "Jobs are good. I like work" for three hours.
I like Nick and Margaret though but there's a lot of them chatting in the back of a taxi and I keep thinking they might kiss.
become massive nerds about work all of a sudden? In most cases it's alright, at best.
Not exactly Kid A, is it?
The bosses have won :(
that give them such an unshakeably strong conviction that they're making a huge Contribution to Society (TM)
was a bit wet really
NICK: Hello welcome to Nick and Margaret: Too Many Immigrants. I am Nick --- I said, I AM NICK ... Margaret?
MARGARET: Oh sorry there Nick, I saw an unemployed man buying bread for his family when he could have saved money -- THE TAXPAYERS MONEY -- and bought this discounted catfood
NICK: An honourable thing for you to do it was to help that man.
MARGARET: He got baffled when I hurled the unmarked tins at him yelling that he could save.
NICK: Pfft... this culture of entitlement. I imagine he had become accustomed to his benefits-assisted lifestyle of Kingsmill and platinum-coated palaces. But anyway let us continue with our new balanced documentary
MARGARET: Yes in this programme we will be finding out whether there really ARE too many immigrants...
NICK: ...or if it's just that there's an OK number of them but they don't integrate properly! These people come over here and have the gaul to buy different products to the rest of us.
MARGARET: And they watch films where all the characters make weird noises like a Stockhausen composition and there are words at the bottom of the screen
NICK: And you're supposed to read the words
MARGARET: Anyway for our first part of the show we went and talked to a person
PERSON: Well we're a nation of immigrants, I s'pose. A melting pot of all the nations who settled 'ere innit like the Romans and the Vikings and the Cantonese
MARGARET: WHAT IS THIS
NICK: Hang on here... so what you're saying is that we are a NATION OF IMMIGRANTS
MARGARET: How could we not have noticed!?!?!?!??!??????!!! That's why there are always so many immigrants!! Not because public perception is heavily informed by a shit-stirring, sensationalist media that seeks to solve complicated problems with over-simple facsimiles of solutions and that has irreparably screwed with how people engage with politics and current issues and with how the political sphere can engage with people and the issues that effect them........
NICK: But because we are a NATION OF IMMIGRANTS ANYWAY SO THEY'RE EVERYWHERE
MARGARET: Come on Nick for the next part of our programme we are going to talk to Professor Brian Cox to find out how we can SINK THE UNITED KINGDOM SO WE CAN'T STEAL OUR OWN JOBS
NICK: And DILUTE OUR OWN PROUD HERITAGE WITH OUR OWN STRANGE FOREIGN WAYS
fish n' chips and walks along the pier and "promenade" as he calls them.
not sure if it was the same one or if it is some kind of series. Basically *spoiler alert* they had people who started off disliking immigration, they put them with some immigrants and by the end they liked them. Usual stuff about not being able to walk down the street and hear English etc. That old Somali guy was a bit of a dick for not helping out that Sikh charity dish out some food though.
