There is no doubt in my mind that without the wilful assistance of the BBC, Miliband and Labour would not be as far ahead in the polls as they are. Naturally this may change but the BBC is remarkably accommodating to allowing Labour to set the daily political agenda and then reinforce it by parroting the crafted Labour soundbites …be it “Plan B” (now discarded) “Bedroom Tax” (no such thing) and more recently “Cost of living crisis”. Today sees an effort to add “childcare crunch” to the vocabulary and BBC trails the ramblings of Comrade Ed here. The BBC is working hard to return Labour to power in 2015 and the person who carries greatest culpability for this is …Cameron. He had a chance to really challenge the BBC and start a process of utter destruction of this malignant beast in our digital midst but he flunked it. And should Miliband stride into Downing Street in 2015, as the champagne corks at the BBC, he should reflect on his failure.
