The children’s television producer Coolabi has bought the rights to produce Bagpuss for television, but Mr Postgate’s son, Daniel, has scotched plans to bring the series back. Talking from his home in Kent this weekend, Daniel Postgate, a children’s author and illustrator, said he hadn’t liked the new proposals at all.
In a statement, Andrew Lloyd Weaver said that Bagpuss is a known henchman of Moriarty the Cat, the Napoleon of crime, who, Weaver believes, coordinated a simultaneous cyber-attack on the University of East Anglia and the theft of a laptop computer from the University of Victoria.
Paul Dennis at Bishophill says:
I am growing tired of the lazy, careless and vacuous journalism that seeks to smear by insinuation. This newspaper asserts that 2 prominent climate bloggers (who spoke at the Heartland Institute) who associate with Paul Dennis a 54 year old climate researcher at the University of East Anglia. I don’t know what the Independent is trying to insinuate but to me associate in this context strikes of conspiracy, subterfuge etc.
