This simian apologies for its recent reticence and lack of posting. In truth, the uncovering of a vast right wing conspiracy has shattered this monkey's faith in the world. I have been huddled inside with the radio up to baffle the bugs. I have had my metal fillings changed for plastic. I have lined the inside of my homburg with tinfoil.
I had long know that Sir Patrick Moore has been a Tory and is now a supporter of UKIP - see him in scrofulous Churchillian mode. I remember him, of course, as the host of Gamemaster, on Channel 4. But I recently discovered that Johnny Ball, he of Playschool and Think of a Number, has been writing for the Freedom Association. That is, of course, the right-wing libertarian organisation set up by Norris McWhirter, himself a feature on Record Breakers.
That's been enough to send this monkey into a flip. Was the whole of children's broadcaster infiltrated... What seeds have been planted subliminally in this simian's cranium? And what next? Is Fred Harris a survivalist?
