BBC SEND OUT BLUE PETER HI-TECH ROBOCOP TO MURDER EBAY BADGE FIENDS
But it couldn't get down the stairs, talks Japanese and is only really any good at chess.
Instead, not one, but TWO elected members of Parliament decided the most important issue affecting the nation today was the sale of Blue Peter badges on Ebay.
The badges, handed out by the BBC TV kids show, are awarded to prefects, recyclists, scouts, busy bodies and people who look after their mum because ''her legs don't work very well''.
Over 200 UK ''attractions'' accept the badges for free admission, and consequently, if you visit zoos and pencil museums a lot, are worth a pretty penny.
Ok, so the BBC are going to issue an ID card to stop this in future, plus most people contacted by the BBC who were selling on the site have had second thoughts and taken them off sale.
So why the fuck have TWO liberal democrat MPs tabled a House of Commons motion demanding Ebay ban the sale of the badges? What a couple of headline-seeking, middle-class vote hunting, fuck-witted, shit-faced James Blunts.
