I want my license fee back… well almost.

24 June, 2008

There is a rightwing myth about the place that the BBC is some creature of the Labour Party. I think this is utter rubbish. If the BBC does have a bias I think it is towards the metropolitian elite in general. Funnily enough the last time London voted they put in the Conservatives and I bet there was a more than fair proportion of BBC employees voting Tory.

But hey this is democracy and as long as the output is reasonably fair to all sides everyone should be happy. I have to agree though with Conor Ryan the BBC are increasingly playing soft ball with the Tories especially as they do have a reasonable chance of forming the next government. Has the BBC managed to elucidate what on earth the Tories will inflict on the country if they win. No a bit of it. Best check Hopi if you want to know about that.
