BBC Ignoring Rival Debates Bid

The balanced BBC seems to be ignoring the YouTube / Guardian / Telegraph debates proposal. Guido noticed nothing on any of the BBC news shows. Nothing on the Six or the Ten, Newsnight or the Today programme. Almost as if they want it to go away…

A source from the bid consortium says they have definite positive interest from the parties.

N.B. Guy News is mulling over a debate bid…

    What was that Gandhi quote about the process ‘they’ adopt when they are in the mood to crush opposition?

    What the BBC pays attention to, and how, can often be scarier to democracy and free speech than what it chooses to omit, editorially.

    ps: Aunty, don’t forget; no matter how unique you think you are, the last line will apply eventually.

Lord Glasman tells it like it is:

“The first thing is to acknowledge that Labour has been captured by a kind of aggressive public sector morality which is concerned with the individual and the collective but doesn’t understand relationships.”
