What the BBC Wouldn't Let Guido Broadcast

Guido is on the BBC’s Daily Politics later today.  Originally the idea was that Guido would record a short video about Draper and Labour’s approach to blogging.  Guido’s view is essentially that LabourList is failing because it is just a spin and propaganda site, not a genuine independent initiative discussing openly the future direction of the Labour Party.  It is a top-down tool of Labour’s spin machine.

The second charge is that Draper is the wrong person to run a blog.  Good blogs succeed because they have good content and an authentic voice.  Draper is a shyster who is the embodiment of  New Labour’s spin and sleaze.  His supposed personal rebirth as a morally reformed psychotherapist is just spin.  He hasn’t changed one little bit.  He still spins his credentials just like he did in the past.

Guido went to California last week to get to the bottom of the story, what Guido discovered was shocking.  Guido has already revealed that Draper didn’t go to the prestigious Berkeley campus of the University of California, instead he went to a small institute, based in a house in the suburbs of Berkeley.

What Guido found out in Berkeley was even more surprising.  Guido has established as fact from reliable sources that in March 2004 Derek Draper was asked to leave the third year of a Clinical Psychology (PsyD) programme normally lasting 5 years.  Further that in April 2004 it was determined that he would not receive an M.A. from the Wright Institute.  So how does Derek come to have an M.A.?  Why was he expelled? Did he win an appeal?  Is it all the same old Derek with the same old spin?

The BBC say that this is off topic and they didn’t want to run a video from Guido on this subject.  Guido thinks it gets to the core of Draper’s character.  He spins the truth and you just can’t get away with that inauthenticity online.  Draper just isn’t the real deal.

Apologies for the sound quality – this is a rough excerpt from the video that Guido wanted to show on the Daily Politics:
