MacAesop’s Fables #10 – The Wolf, the Fox, and the BBC Ape

Our tenth Sunday outpouring of sanctimony and self-righteous morality to be taken as seriously as Labour’s election gains in Glasgow

Apparently, a democracy is a place where numerous elections are held at great cost without issues and with interchangeable candidates.

A WOLF accused a Fox of theft, but the Fox entirely denied the charge. A BBC Ape undertook to adjudge the matter between them.

When each had fully stated his case the Ape announced this sentence: “I do not think you,Wolf, ever lost what you claim; and I do believe you, Fox, to have stolen what you so stoutly deny.”

Analysis: With a bit of imaginative mockery, this scenario can be pinned on Friday’s cooncil election results. Each side clearly did not do what they claim, yet made believable enough assessments of their reading of the results. The moral here: “The dishonest, if they act honestly, get no credit.” could never be more true. Cybernats, with their inbuilt sense of honesty however, know that the real issue here is that the Ape works for the BBC and the BBC is intrinsically and diametrically biased toward the SNP. So, whatever ill befell the party at election time is the Ape’s fault.
