Storm in a Breakfast Tea-Cup

Nicky CampbellJust for the record, since the Guardian is trying to make something of it. Guido is satisfied that  BBC Radio 5’s Nicky Campbell meant nothing malicious and it was a bit of early morning banter that went a bit too far. Campbell apologised on air there and then and later in person.  His apology is accepted.

It is indicative of the BBC mindset that it is often the case that Guido is pigeon-holed by way of  introduction, in contrast when say Will Hutton is on the BBC, he is not introduced as “the left-wing commentator”.  This is not the first time this has happened.  When Michael Crick referred to Guido as “the right-wing blogger” the immediate retort was to refer to “Michael Crick, the left-wing broadcaster”See how you like them apples…
