Here’s the BBC election website at the opening of play this morning. It’s a Labour wet dream:
Labour’s lines and policies feature prominently and are completely unquestioned.
The only mention of the Tories links back to an ancient story about a Cameron speech given on 14 April.

And here is the whole interview in its terrible glory:
Dopey deficit dunce Ian Mearns, re-standing in Gateshead, claims that even “after four years of the most aggressive spending cuts in living memory,” the “deficit is still rising”:
