Oh what a dream start to the new week for the BBC. They instantly move in to exploit Cameron’s slap down of the idea that subsidised milk for under 5’s could be scrapped. There was an item here on it and then how do they start the 8.10am prime time slot – by Mr Humphyrs intoning “Maggie Thatcher – Milk Snatcher, catchy slogan”. The “nasty party” inferences were present and correct and then the conversation meandered to the need for “more State involvement” in the Nation’s health, brought up by John Humphyrs. This was an example of the interviewer using his opinions to lead the debate, thoroughly unprofessional but typical. I also note that Humphrys let Professor Ian Gilmore away with the unsubstantiated claim that the smoking ban had reduced heart attacks by 10%.
MAGGIE THATCHER, MILK SNATCHER!
