This from Bishop HIll:
Inside the Environment Agency is reporting that he has received a letter from a potential whistleblower who claims to have evidence that Agency officials are conspiring with the Labour party to undermine the government.
I have been following your blog for the last few months. You make some truthful claims but they are only the tip of the iceberg. I have been working for the Environment Agency as a team leader for six years. Your last post on political hypocrisy is what has prompted this email. I can give you the evidence you need showing senior managers in the South West conspiring with Labour MPs to discredit this government over the past two to three years, which I believe have made the floods far worse than they otherwise would have been. The MPs involved are: xxxxx (edited out for legal reasons – Labour MPs based in South West towns and cities)
There’s always the possibility that it’s not true, but it might be worth laying in supplies of popcorn, just in case.
Wonder when the BBC will start investigating that one….surely an incredibly serious charge that needs looking at?
But then you have to ask is the BBC itself in collusion with Labour?
The BBC has deliberately ignored lies from Labour Peer Chris Smith about the Environment Agency’s policies and their advice to government….and indeed actually aided and abetted in the Evan Davis interview in which Davis pretended to ‘corner’ Smith with a question about the Agency’s policies but used an out of date document which Smith could bat aside when Davis could have gone to the Agency’s own website and found the current document which said the same as the ‘old document’…and proved Smith a liar when he claimed no knowledge of it….Harrabin also miraculously fails to locate the current document….which for a specialist Environmental journalist might be thought strangely lax,
The BBC also kicked off a serious falling out between the Coalition partners caused by Labour supporter Jim Naughtie’s interview with Sally Morgan, head of Ofsted in which she made unfounded and confused accusations that she had been removed from office purely because she was a Labour supporter.
The interview, such as it was, was a lightweight affair with Naughtie paying only lip service to the notion of an actual ‘interview’ which challenged Morgan’s claims…and in fact ended with Naughtie carrying on her narrative suggesting that this was very serious and surely something must be done….’if true’.
The BBC of course utterly failed to look back a few years and compare Labour’s record in office of packing these NGO’s and Quangos with its own supporters with what is now claimed the Tories are doing.
