Tie Me Kangaroo Down, Pete...

What is it about bloody Rolf Harris songs that make them so catchy? I can still hear "Two little boys..." rattling around my synapse as I try to get over this shocker.

Peter Freeman of the Competition Commission (Christ, there's nominative determinacy again!) has decreed that Project Kangaroo is going to end up as dog food after all.

For those of you living under a rock these past few months, Kangaroo was the name given to the project for BBC to offer on-demand iPlayer content from other providers including ITV and Channel 4.

The BBC quotes Freeman's thinking thus:
"The three joint venture partners are the largest TV companies in this country and you would normally expect them to compete with each other on a thing like this"

Here's the thing, Mr Freeman - they decided it was better for the viewers (and we pay for this service after all) so what the fuck gives you the right to stick your snout in?

The Competition Commission? Oh so it does.

Fuck! Fuckity fuck!
