The BBC’s Absurd Level Of Coverage Of The Pope

with 3 comments

This has been another grave error of judgment by the BBC.

According to the 2001 census there are 4.2 million Catholics in the UK.  According to the 2005 Church census, just 887,000 are regular worshippers.  Does this justify the absurd level of wall to wall coverage we have had to endure over the last four days?

It looks totally disproportionate to me.  More like some sort of subversive attempt by religious zealots to impose their superstitious beliefs on the rest of us.

If any other group can prove nearly a million regular supporters in the UK will the BBC guarantee equivalent coverage?

With 96 straight hours of guaranteed airtime, whoever you are, whatever your “act”, you’ll easily be able to fill Hyde Park and venues all over the country. You’ll make a fortune!

Wenlock Mandeville Disaster

Child's Play

The most obvious explanation is that someone at the Olympics Committee has been horizontal jogging with someone at the design company.

What else?

There has to be a rational explanation for one of most ridiculous, badly-judged communications campaigns I have ever seen.  The Wenlock and Mandeville mascot idea is third-rate, junior (bad) art school nonsense.

I first worked on ideas like this more than 30 years ago.  I stake all my experience on this, I stand by every ounce of this assertion – it is NONSENSE, shocking NONSENSE and I am dismayed to see it. If it gains any traction then it will only be because of the money spent on it.  Almost anything else would be better!

Lord Coe and other talented individuals on the Olympics Committee have made a mistake here.  This is a serious error of judgement.
