You would need to have a heart of stone not to laugh at the BBC’s dismay at Gordon Brown’s fall from popular grace. Nowhere is this more evident than at Prime Minister’s Question Time in the Commons where Conservative leader David Cameron regularly hammers poor Gordon. The BBC can no longer disguise the fact that dysfunctional Brown gets flattened at each of these encounters so instead it resorts to one of its favourite tactics – sneering class-war. Reporting on the Brown vs Cameron clash yesterday, on this morning’s “Toady” programme the BBC angle was to focus on Cameron’s hair-style. The BBC reporter opined that it made Cameron look “posh Beano character Lord Snooty”. Cue smirks all round and re-assurance in BBC land that all is well – even as their paymasters in NuLabour head for the rocks. The BBC agitated like hell to get rid of Blair and get Brown enthroned, but now that he is seen as the king with no clothes, it is getting harder and harder for the BBC to accept that a change is a coming and the years of Labour rule are near an end.
