“THERE HAVE BEEN SOME QUITE EXTRAORDINARY ATTACKS ON THE LEADER OF THE LABOUR PARTY – QUITE EXTRAORDINARY. I UNDERSTAND WHY PEOPLE ARE WORRIED ABOUT WHETHER THE MOST SENIOR EDITORIAL VOICES AT THE BBC HAVE LOST THEIR IMPARTIALITY.”
Sir Michael Lyons, the Former BBC chair criticises the corporations coverage of Jeremy Corbyn. This is why The Labour Party is going to need to work twice as hard to get out its vote, and convert floating voters to unite against the tories.
BBC Political correspondent Nick Robinson was chair of the Young Tories during the Thatcher era, he was also president of the Conservative Youth & Chair of the Oxford Conservatives.
Andrew Neil was a Glasgow University Conservative who went on to work for the pro thatcher Rupert Murdoch in a number of roles. His producer at the BBC Daily politics is the former vice Chair of Conservatives Students, the brother of a Tory MP & the former chief of staff to Tory MP Frances Maude.
Michael Lyons (who made these comments) was followed as Chair of the BBC Trust by Chris Patten, a former Conservative minister, who was in turn followed by Rona Fairhead, a banker with HSBC and the wife of a former Conservative councillor.
That’s a bit like appointing an oil company executive to be in charge of climate change policy… and then pretending that the oil company executive is, er… ‘impartial’ on matters relating to solar panel.
Even conservatives are tired of it:
“THE BANKERS WANT HIM TO FAIL, AS DO THE BUSINESSMEN WHO FINANCE THE MODERN LABOUR PARTY. THE MASS MEDIA ARE ENEMIES. THE BBC HAS ABANDONED ITS TRADITIONAL NEUTRALITY OVER WHAT IT CALLS ‘LEFT-WING JEREMY CORBYN’ (WHY DOESN’T IT REFER TO ‘RIGHT-WING DAVID CAMERON/ THERESA MAY’?)” – PETER OBORNE
