Attention, earthlings: this is the Mekon!

May 28, 2009 at 8:36 pm (BBC, blogging, Champagne Charlie, Europe, green, media, strange situations)

mekon 2 Innocent viewers of this evening’s BBC 4 news programme have been terrified by the unexpected appearance of the dreaded Mekon, apparently undefeated by his would-be nemesis Dan Dare, and still intent upon inter-galactic domination.

The Mekon’s disturbing intervention into the programme, looming menacingly over a studio discussion on the EU elections, is of concern to this blog because he claimed to be called “Alan Thomas” and to be speaking on behalf of Shiraz Socialist! He had even gone so far as to attempt to disguise himself with orange makeup, but there was no concealing the true identity of the arch enemy of the human race.

He did talk some sense about the EU and the need for a strengthening of European institutions, citing the present negotiations over the future of GM’s European operations as an example of the need for Britain to be more fully engaged with Europe.

But the Mekon’s apparently reasonable line on Europe was merely a cloak for his dastardly plan to invade earth and enslave us all: Dan Dare, where are you now?

    Very Orson Welles and War of the Worlds like.

    You’re dead next time I see you, Charlie 😉

    Now I understand why you’re voting Green, Alan.

    Now we know more about where to deposit tons of rotting human waste. That is the point about outing the anonymous, isn’t it?

    I have started a collection.

  5. Voltaire's Priest said,

    Well, I’d hardly call it an “outing”. I blog under myown name at Liberal Conspiracy and I did use my own name on the BBC, after all. However if collecting human waste is what lights your blub, then who am I to stop you?

    Can we get back to Zeinab Badawi, please?

    Mekon my arse — that’s Mr Burns that is.

  8. voltairespriest said,

    What about La Badawi, Maria?

  9. Red Maria said,

    Channel 4 News has never been the same without her.

    Zeinab Badawi is the epitome of chic

    Samira Ahmed doesn’t come up to her anklebones.

  10. Rosie said,

    VP – I suppose you wasted time blethering about elections to Ms Badawi instead of finding out where she buys her outfits.

  11. Red Maria said,

    Zeinab doesn’t do anything so vulgar as buy her outfits.

    She selects items from Parisian couturiers’ seasonal collections. Prices are never discussed. Never. Never ever.

  12. voltairespriest said,

    I’m afraid I did indeed spend most of the time talking about the Euros – although I believe the lovely Zeinab did indeed outshine the competition in the London studio, so she needed no prompting from me, given I was being beamed in from Brum…

    […] A BBC Four News appearance of His great big scary dome staring doon on those other weirdos in the studio and that. His chance to say something profound and all he did was talk shite in a fucking caricature 1980 lefty voice. Woe to every fucker. Doomed. We are all doomed. […]
