Well, as forecast here yesterday morning, the BBC has lavished praise on the Brown conference speech. Indeed in the BBC worldview bubble, Brown has triumphed magnificently, silenced his critics, routed the Tories, and laid down solid “serious” plans for the future. They have even suggested, oh so subtly, that Brown has moved the Party “slightly” to the left. Cheers all round and time for more “regulation”. The thing is that the BBC is now completely immersed in the NuLabour spin zone, indeed it is the broadcasting arm of the Labour government. They have been doing their best to “Save Gordon” for some time now and will feel that their mission has been accomplished, at least for this week. Let’s see if Cameron gets such an easy ride next week. Of course OUTSIDE the BBC bubble, things remain as they were. I suggest that Labour remains in terminal decline and the loss of the seat in the forthcoming Glenrothes by-election will surely bring some reality back to this BBC created faux reality. Finally, if you want to see just how great the Brown love-in is, just check out the image on the Today page this morning – Gordon and Sarah kissing each other, even as the BBC drools over them. Pass the sick bag.

    It’s all too much: “Why hasn’t the BBC with all its vastly over staffed political staff chosen to point out that a Secretary of state announcing their resignation at 3am is very, very odd indeed – especially in the middle of a party conference. Other news outlets has noted this.”

    Unusual but not odd. The had just learnt that the news had been leaked and they wanted to announce it formally before it appeared in the press, radio and TV.

    Ahhh, I see. The BBC won’t do ‘odd’, and especially not ‘unusual’. Well, with its news, anyway.

    That’s one I must add to an already large yet still growing list of semantic distinctions that get trotted out daily by various folk, those who report upon them and… some others.
