Tories doing more torying

    The BBC is not right leaning enough for them.
    Now of course the BBC is culturally left leaning. It is however politically to the right. Kuenssberg is a tory stooge who's job is to ensure that no difficult questions are asked of ministers, whilst ensuring any anti labour stories run and run.
    Now the tories want cheerleaders, like Fox 'news' in the USA. They want all praise articles. They want a totally partisan BBC in their service. You can't get people to vote against their own interests unless you can saturate the media environment with your lies.
    Which is interesting. They have not done this before. Something has changed.
    Item the first: the most dementedly hard right government the UK has ever suffered
    Item the second: an incompetent yahoo as PM, with delusions of grandeur
    Item the third: print media is dying, the net is becoming more important and the tories can't control that
    Item the fourth: covid is killing old people, and the ones that survive might well be annoyed that the tories have failed to protect so many.
    Item the fifth: at the last election, far more folk voted against the conservatives than for them, sadly for different parties

    Despite the 80 seat lead, are they scared? Why do they suddenly want a British Fox 'news'?
    Of course every government has an eye to the next election, but this is extreme.

    On the other hand, maybe Bojo the clown just wanted some support for his ego. He hasn't had much chance at being all Churchillian. Or maybe the culture war is just a distraction technique from the several thousand ways the government is making everything worse for 99.99% of the population. Yeah, it's probably that.

    Is this a symptom of Corbyn-deficiency?

    Oh dear, still sniping and banging on about Corbyn? You really do have a fixation on the man don't you!

    You seem to be uncommonly bothered by any reference I make about Corbyn. :confused:

    Strange indeed!

    Corbyn should not let himself be photographed wearing a mask wrongly. Why is it nearly always old men who do this? The old male nose is not a pretty sight when brought into prominence. You see nostril hairs and worse.

    Either wear a mask properly or not at all.

    A typical opinion from the left. Ask people from the right about Kuenssberg and they’ll say she’s typical of the left-wing bias of the BBC!
