BBC’s Universal Credit Interviewee is Actually Labour Party Activist

The BBC extensively quote Universal Credit claimant Rebecca Smidmore as a case study in a widely shared article¬†on the beleaguered benefit reform. What the article doesn’t inform its readers is that Smidmore is a Labour Party member. This is especially curious as the BBC knows this pretty key fact and briefly included it in last night’s News at 10 report. Why did they leave it out of the article?
