I liked ¡Bong! better when it was plainly satirical

as opposed to ominously prophetic. The "Community Investment Catapult" now seems inevitable, as does seeing 9/10ths of the BBC revenues go into consultancies and focus groups rather than compelling programming.

Perhaps the author of these pieces (Orlowski?) would care to bring a little goodness & sunshine back from his next time machine foray?

Bong for DG!

He can't be any worse than the current stand-in clown - Tim Davie or whatever he's called.

Mr Bong has been in a senior BBC management role for quite a few years already...

Perhaps just a little too much time spent with "The Bong"???

Title says it all folks, you know you have a problem when it becomes difficult to separate fantasy from reality and Mr. Bong seems to have reached that critical mass.

The mistake that most ordinary folk make and which makes life more difficult and even a problem for them, is to not realise that fantasy and reality are as a flash crash and unbeatable tag team which cannot be separated from each other for they are inextricably linked to and driver each other.

And yes, the BBC have lost the plot and UKGBNI are in dire straits need of a considerably smarter Media Director General.

The only problem with Bong now...

... is that is has strayed a little too far into the obviously satirical.

I miss the commentards who didn't understand this is a piss-take column...

WTF?

can ¡Bong! get it's own section

rather then just being a byline in bootnotes? I generally like bootnotes, but I also like things to make some sense.
