‘Guest Who’ points out this article in the Mail in which the Tories complain about Flanders being the Voice of Labour:
‘BBC host accused of ‘peeing all over British industry’: IDS fury at ‘carping and moaning’ broadcaster as report casts doubt on jobs boost
- Iain Duncan Smith has made a formal complaint to the BBC over its coverage of employment figures
- The Work and Pensions Secretary accused Economics Editor Stephanie Flanders of showing a pro-Labour bias
- Claimed the BBC seizes every chance to ‘dump on the Government’
- BBC said it was confident coverage of the figures was impartial and fair
Is Flanders the ‘Lady Haw Haw’ of out time, broadcasting propaganda? Strangely not only did she have relations with the two Eds but is distantly related to George Osborne with some very posh ancestors….
‘Probably less good news for Ed M and Ed B is that they are also linked to the Chancellor of the Exchequer via Stephanie, whose rich vault of ancestors includes Sir Thomas Osborne, the ninth baronet, and George’s great-great-great… well, you’d need Steph’s phenomenal grasp of figures to work that one out.’
