Jamie Reed Wins Worst Interview of the 2015 Campaign, So Far

Self-proclaimed Labour funny man Jamie Reed had a toe-curling outing on the Daily Politics. He was only saved from death by smugness by the live feed going down…

And here is the whole interview in its terrible glory:

BBC Website ‘Balance’ is a Joke

This a snapshot of the front-page of the BBC website as of 10 this morning:

It reads like a Labour press release, with each election story given the best possible pro-Labour slant to it. Where are Cameron’s, Osborne’s or Major’s attacks on Miliband on the same subject? Why is Labour’s nursing policy presented without question? Where is any other party on the front page?

Click through to the BBC’s Election 2015 hub, and it’s even less balanced:

Not a single Tory or LibDem featured story. Miliband’s SNP angle on Cameron is presented twice at the top of the page, yet no such treatment for the Tory response or any counter argument. Labour’s spin quote on the NHS is included in a headline and it’s topped off with a 36 hour old puff piece about Miliband taking a selfie. Where are UKIP? Where are the Greens, where are the LibDems?

Sinn Fein aren’t even going to turn up to Parliament, yet their begging bowl is considered a more significant story by the BBC website editor than the intervention of Sir John Major or Lord Forsyth. Nor a mention of UKIP’s business letter this morning. How this could possibly be spun as fair and balanced?

Jimmy Mulville of Hat Trick Productions says:

“On reflection, Jeremy Clarkson has decided not to host Have I Got News For You. We fully expect him to resume his hosting duties later in the year.”

 Boo.

Massive BBC Tech Waste Spin Unravels

bbc-logo

The BBC’s chief technology officer, Matthew Postgate, has claimed that by spending £285 million to prop up the Corporation’s creaking technology infrastructure for the next two years, they will actually be saving £90 million. ‘Negotiating’ £90 million off a ridiculous quote doesn’t mean you saved £90 million…

In a rambling blog post, Postgate trumpets the BBC’s great success in forking out almost £300 million to keep their tech backend running, hailing it as a sign of “financial efficiency.” He also claimed the BBC are “moving away from one monolithic, long term contract with a single supplier, to multiple shorter-term contracts with a number of specialist companies.” Aunty Beeb is currently offering a 7-10 year IT contract worth hundreds of millions…

Who Was Ed’s Secret Girlfriend in 2005?

“I first met Ed when I went to a friend’s house for dinner,” Justine Miliband tells the Mirror today:
