Baldwin At It Again

Man of letters and Labour spinner extraordinaire Tom Baldwin has penned another of his now infamous rants to the media with a host of outlandish demands and decrees.  Labour are too broke for a proper spring conference, instead their one day event in Nottingham next week looks set to achieve all the press coverage it deserves. Baldwin has other ideas though. Writing to the broadcasters he demands:

“We are keen to resolve this amicably and would suggest a couple of options to you going forward… give us coverage of this event with no comment from other parties… Alternatively, you could reflect the fact the Conservative-led Government has thus far been given far more coverage, given the two party political conferences covering four days in total, and restrict the air time given to the government parties in the run-up to the balance period.”

Clearly designed to rile Guido and everyone else in order to generate coverage and get people talking, the tactic seems to work though Baldwin hasn’t got  a leg to stand on. A quick peek through the weekend telly round ups from the weekend of the Tories conference found on the Saturday, Channel 4 News covered Miliband’s speech to Labour councillors on the squeezed middle. Sky had the same speeches live. The BBC trailed an interview with David Hansen on fuel duty. On the Sunday David Miliband was on Marr while Alistair Darling did Sky.

Fair and balanced…
