It is well known that the BBC planned the Covid-19 pandemic (that of course doesn't exist, all those people that died are BBC "fake news"), is responsible for Paul Weller haircut - his hairdresser escaped from a BBC laboratory - and of course murdered Lady Di to increase their audience... :-D

And the irony of that is not lost on me, as Line of Duty is all about corruption within an organisation.

All I can say is, if you're missing good stuff that is indepentently made for the organisation, then maybe you can take a more judicious line, rather than one where you cut off your own nose (that's not meant offensively, it's just the only common phrase that works).

If you have less of an objection to ITV, say, then the good news is that they have commissioned at least one series from Jed Mercurio, the writer of Line of Duty.
Irrespective of the writer , if the BBC were running a show in front of my house , l would not open the curtains . They shielded paedophiles for years. Time to defund what no longer qualifies as a public service.

I hear you, nevertheless I am in no hurry simply to slit the throat of just about the last thing in the UK - dire though it now is - that has not been sold off to vested interest.

Ironic, though, that Line of Duty should happen to be a narrative about how incompetence and corruption seem indistinguishable in a large organisation.* I am sure that in the BBC there were those who shielded people, those who were scared of them and of the shielders because of their power, those who thought there was something going on but didn't know what, and the vast majority of people who were simply doing a job of work and putting food on the table. Defunding the Beeb wouldn't cure any of that; if it survived, it would still be a large organisation, still prone to the same internal shite. I look at it this way: if I boycotted every corrupt/incompetent organisation, I would soon starve to death. That's the kind of society we live in.
[*My working life was in HMC&E/HMRC, so I've seen all of this kind of goings-on.]

Can we drop this now, or it'll become this week's off-topic vegan debate?

I canceled my licence five years ago and only watch internet on my TV . The BBC is woke and going broke quickly .
Terrestrial TV offers little and there is little reason to pay for it. You can watch all the other channels free on catch up anyway. I have no interest in ‘reality TV’, cookery shows, quiz shows, talent contests, dance competitions. The sport is disappearing or rescheduled to inconvenient times. The Open Golf and the US Masters ? Gone. Six nations rugby? All over the place, on different days, times and channels. Football highlights ? Available for free on Sky long before Match of the Day is broadcast.

As for news, current affairs and Question Time - there are plenty of other options.

I think it looks like a great fit , l like to show a bit of cuff anyway. .
Thank you. I've always been lucky with Daks stuff, esp. vintage. Nice clothes, manufacturing and fit.
My jacket has a more English cut, with darts on the chest, giving it an hourglass shape that I like.
The jacket @Inkss found looks like a more American sack cut, not better or worse than mine - just different. I could put it to good use though.

I know pics on t'internet have their failings but per the pic l don't think the Mod fit gets much better considering it is not mtm.


As for Mr lnkss, he never ceases to amaze me with his finds.
