WHILE the “foaming at the mouth” brigade continually bang on about anti-Conservative bias at the BBC, I’ve discovered a startling piece of anti-Labour – or, more accurately, anti-Gordon Brown – bias over at Sky News.
On tonight’s newspaper review, presenter Steve Dixon, discussing a recent speech on the economy by the prime minister with his guest Michael Dodd, said this:
“I would love to know whether that sort of rubbish makes a difference to voters because it means nothing…
“‘Calm, determined British spirit’? – Nonsense!”
Can you imagine the outcry if any BBC presenter used that kind of language to describe Cameron? The “foaming at the mouth” brigade will probably jump to Sky’s defence, however, on the simple basis that they’re not the Beeb and it was GB and not “David” who was the target.
