    I accept it looks dodgy but I would imagine the kid would be a bit upset if she won the competition fairly (it may have been) and now shes getting doubted because of it.....

    you, really, you couldn't make it up!

    You'd think they would have terms like 'employees and relatives of employees are not allowed to enter competitions'

    Course it looks dodgy, but then maybe it isn't :thinking:

    I watched this on blue peter yesterday with my daughter what a fix that's disgusting how can these things happen i bet she never even designed it tut tut tut.

    She beat 17,000 rivals in a competition billed by the Royal Mint as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Her design of a high jumper has been struck in to a commemorative 50p coin that will be available next year.

    The BBC insist no rules were broken.

    Yes just pure coincidence my backside, what a load of balls she beat 17,000 kids and she is the daughter of senior BBC executive it just doesn't wash sorry,

    Wonder how many other times a year this happens across various 'platforms' - and no-one ever catches wind of it.

    Human nature and all that.

    omg omg omg. sack her

    Read this in comments and it make me laugh :oops:
    # A vicious madman terrorist was removed from a coach en route to Denmark. "Millions of lives have been saved by our gallant Police" said Gordon Brown. "I am recommending them all for the Victoria Cross". The terrorist is due to have his hands cut off in public later this week.

    # A lefty commie judge was taken away from his home and shot today, after suggesting the public had a right to know about British torture involvement in Guantanamo. "That silly old fart was a waste of space, so I had him killed" said Government Minister Rabid Sillyrant.

    # The BBC is going to offer pay increases to staff and presenters who call each other "Pakis" in future.

    # Something very horrible happened in Russia today, caused by the mad Stalinist dictator Vladimir Putin. It was so horrible that we can't show it to you. But believe us - he's a mad ******* who needs to be nuked as soon as possible. Got that?

    # Iran. Now there's a country no-one would miss. In the BBC's entirely objective view, of course.

    # After the News, this week's Charity Appeal is in aid of Mossad employees who have fallen into distress in old age, and no longer have any Palestinian children to murder. Can you help them, please?

    This has been the BBC = Bent, Biased, and Criminal.

    he competition closed in March, before any discussions between the NHU and Andrew Jackson.

    "The eventual winner was selected as a finalist in March. Andrew is due to start at the NHU at the end of October".


    But please, don't let things like 'facts' or 'reality' get in the way of your bitter, bile-filled spouting.
