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.

    ……A million people on incap ben ,got a job because they were frightened of an ATOS medical,..so said G.Schapps and the news,repeatedly! The truth ,apparently,is a slightly lower figure,i.e. 20,000….

    Multiply 20,000 by the amount the average claimant receives each year , don’t forget this is only the start .

Dan Hodges on Labour unity

“We’ve heard a lot over the past few years about how Miliband has united Labour. But he has not united Labour. He has pacified Labour. He has placed it into a medically induced coma following the trauma of the party’s 2010 defeat.”
