Secret Handshake for Tories at the Beeb

Earlier Guido pointed out that Kevin Maguire was using the fact Tory MP Charlotte Leslie once worked as a researcher on the Weakest Link as proof that the BBC was not biased, well Ms. Leslie gets in touch:

“It was at the BBC that a fellow Conservative caught me by the lift, gave me a secret handshake having overheard a phone conversation I’d had with a Conservative friend and whispered ‘I’m a Conservative too, but don’t let them find out or you’ll be going nowhere’. Be worth a little survey of Conservatives in the BBC, and just how socially acceptable it is to be one!”

A few token Tories, however high-profile, can never balance out a culture…

Quote of the Day

Lewis Goodall opines

“Remainer readers may dislike Mr Farage – they may dislike his style, his rhetoric, his approach – but he cannot be faulted for his appreciation of strategy. If his opponents don’t up their game – and fast – he will beat them, just as he did before.”
