British politics are a mystery to us Americans in the same way that, well, some of our own politics can be at times. Still, it doesn’t take much imagination to understand why Jonathan Pie, an on-camera reporter character portrayed by actor Tom Walker, seems to have caught on across the pond. His dispatches for “FKN News” are frequently crass, like this one, in which Pie chastises the BBC for needing to “grow some balls”.
As Americans, it’s unclear to us what exactly Pie (and, therefore, Walker) is saying, literally at times, and so the finer points of the character are likely lost on us. The rant clearly has something to with a license fee, and of course you see the BBC in the background there. That’s about all we’ve got, really, but somebody should grow some balls! That much we know!
