Frankly if the BBC unions want to strike during the Conservative Party conference does it matter? ITN and Sky will still be there.
Gaby Hinsliff asks why Tories who complain about left-wing bias should be bothered. They shouldn’t. The BBC bosses will be embarrassed not to have covered the governing party’s conference, they shouldn’t. They should hold tough against the unions no matter what blackmail if they want to impress the government.
Hardly anyone watches the coverage anyway.
UPDATE : Will the BBC go on strike? Smarkets punters make the probabilities Yes 65% / No 46.
