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?

    Starts with ignoring, I think. So watch out for the next in the series.

    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.

Chris Bryant talks to the Times Diary about a famous gay actor:

“I don’t think I’ve had sex with him. He says we had sex in Clapham. I’m fairly certain I’ve never had sex south of the river”



Progressive Inclusion Champion says:

Great to hear Carswell call for inclusive policies and that UKIP must stand for first and second generation immigrants as much as the English.
