  1. Dr Jim says:

    In the creation of news business at least these guys create funny news

    I bet if you were to put this on the BBC there are folk out there who would believe it though

  2. Andrew Davidson says:

    Ohhhh unlucky. Only a family of three.

  3. mogabee says:

    I was told this episode would be ‘different’…

    I thought boring, routine unexciting.

    Boy! Was that brilliantly done! Laughed out loud at so many bits: Stu your cameo role was brief but smiletastic. πŸ˜€ The inclusion of Mike Pence was inspirational!

    But guys..stick to the news and leave the singing to erm..someone else. ;D πŸ˜€

  4. Clootie says:

    It is worrying that the gap between spoof news and the BBC is so narrow…and closing!

  5. Andrew Davidson says:

    That video is beautiful. Best yet. Giving me even stronger The Day Today vibes.

  6. James Sneddon says:

    Funniest yet

  7. Ken500 says:

    Looks like the US is cutting (illegal) Arms sales to the Saudis. The Saudi the highest Defence spending (pro rata) in the world. $69Billion (including internal) for 33Million people. The economy is tanking

    The US the 2nd highest (pro rata) Defence Bill in the world. $611Billion. (328Million pop) Unaffordable. A third of all Defence spending total in the world.

  8. Marcia says:

    Much improved from 2014 – the production values are far better than BBC Revolting Scotland.

  9. pa_broon74 says:

    I don’t usually comment here, the quality of Dateline 2018’s output however, has left me no choice.

    It’s not just the news where you are, it’s the news where everyone is.

    It is quite simply, (without any exaggeration whatsoever), the best thing on the internet.

    That is all.

  10. Doug says:

    That was nothing short of brilliant.

  11. Reluctant Nationalist says:

    James’ face at 9.15.

    Hope the fire didn’t spread to Bumhole.

  12. Ian McCubbin says:

    You know this stuff is more believable than tbe real spin. Oops did I just say that.

  13. Ian says:

    when will we find out what happened to Scottish Independence though?

  14. James Devoy says:

    Next week Ian, and that’s a Dateline guarantee!

  15. Sharney Dubs says:

    Warming up here guys, I feel a classic coming on.

    Keep at it!!

  16. HandandShrimp says:

    That was funny and disturbing in equal measures πŸ™‚

  17. Ian says:

    Martin looked like he was overheating, obviously been too close to the gas explosion

  18. msean says:

    Live meltdown. Very funny.

  19. Cactus says:

  21. Cactus says:

    Yee-har, turned out ones original viewing device was defaulted to receive the videos in ‘available subtitles’ mode, sweet, thought aye was mibbies gaslighting maself there hehe hehe. πŸ™‚

  23. Cactus says:

    If you clicked on this link earlier this morning, there is a background powerpoint presentation on timer delayed transition, you could sit back and watch the ‘images of leave’ and don’t forget to look at THE TIME remaining to go, it’s your time:

    Awhilst we Scotland be the pioneer of mankinds everday evolution.

    Their, Brexit, is like the “Foundation for Disaster ‘2019.”

    Some things ARE very naughtily necessary.

    And now… a song made by the late Beth Anderson of DL’s 2018:

    “Are YOU talking to me?!”

  26. Cactus says:

    Ahhh, breathe in, breathe out and gather your breath, like.

    It’s good to have loose change handy for use.
    Mind n make sure that you don’t lose your loose change though.
