THE BALD TRUTH REVIEW The political week in 10 minutes – or less!
Welcome to a new project on my blog – ‘The Bald Truth Review’ video. What’s this about? Well, basically it’s an internet video version of the Jersey Evening Pravda’s ‘Week in politics’. The only real difference is that on my show we actually tell you the truth about the major political stories of the past week – or as the tag line says: ‘the political week in 10 minutes – or less!’
Tongue in cheek, yes, it is – but deadly serious for all of that because the issues that I will talk about are ones where the public really do need to ensure that they find out the facts; rather than relying on the Establishment Party spin. So - all you need to know to get you digging deeper and presented to you in less than 10 minutes! Now that surely has to be worth a few minutes of your attention?
Is this first ‘episode’ perfect? Of course it isn’t. For a start the Bailiff had repossessed my expensive ‘Bald Truth Review’ backdrop and the autocue I had pinched from the BBC when I last did an interview was playing up a bit! Still, for one take I don’t think it was a bad first effort.
The good news – or the bad if you are a mainstream media outlet used to having your own way in pumping out whatever old tosh version of events suits your intent – I hope to make this a regular feature of the soon to be re-vamped www.thebaldtruthjersey.co.uk website and blog. With Team Voice’s excellent Live Blog TV broadcast on the Thursday of every States Sitting another small step in bringing you the real stories under the headlines.
The old 1990s cult TV show ‘The X Files’ used to famously say that ‘the truth was out there somewhere’. Well, some of us actually know where the truth is being hidden and we’re increasingly going to be bringing it in to your home! Let’s start with a few choice thoughts on the identity of the ‘real’ Chief Minister; Plemont; the Terms of Reference for the ‘Historic’ Abuse inquiry; a second land reclamation site to pour more toxic ash in to and the small but hugely important issue of protecting parliamentary privilege…
Keep the Faith.
