I heard about the Co-op bank fellow being filmed buying drugs…despite the Co-op coughing up the odd million to the Labour Party and many Labour MPs (Ed Balls for one) in its debt so to speak I didn’t think there would be much mileage in this from a BBC bias point of view.
I was wrong as Craig at Is the BBC biased? points out:
Gone are the allegations he “took great delight” in telling people that he’s “put one over” on the “Tory c****” in parliament.
Gone are all the references to his – and his bank’s – links to the Labour Party. [The Co-Op Bank is a large Labour donor].
Some editor at the BBC News website, presumably, said to whoever wrote this report, “We won’t be talking about any of that”.
Oh…and he’s an ex-Labour councillor…which at least the BBC does admit….but not this….in 2010 Labour leader Ed Miliband appointed him to the party’s Finance and Industry Board.
Crystal meth shame of bank chief: Counting off £20 notes to buy hard drugs, this is the man who ran the Co-op Bank… three days after telling MPs how it lost £700m
