BBC Says David Cameron is a Labour MP


Well done Daily Politics!

I can see why the BBC would think that.

He's not shown much sign of being a real conservative, has he?

It's an easy mistake to make. After all, a serving Minister, a prominent Blairite peer and a senior Downing Street staffer are all preparing to defect, with a safe Tory seat being arranged for that last even as I write.

In the last days of my Labour Party membership (ah, what a thing it is to be FREE!), that Party refused to deny to me that certain persons on the Cameron A-list were still among its members in good stnading.

Cameron leads the Conservative faction of the Bolshevist elite.

Good Spot ! Mind you, that should be reassuring for Nadine Dorries..

LOL! That's the problem with everybody going for the centre ground. There is no separating the parties or politicians...

So Albeeb has got it right this time.

Must go down as a Freudian slip.

Iain, this is a very important piece of political news and explains a great deal about Cameron's behaviour. You were right to bring it to everyone's attention. A considerable scoop.

Don't be silly above anonymous poster, it's funny more than anything.

You'd have thought the daily politics wouldn't have made such a cock up.

Me too, Bel.

It's so hard to tell the difference these days!

Anonymous 8:42 - Well, I don't think it's funny. I think it is tragic that Conservatives don't have a party any more and they don't have anyone to vote for.

purposeful ironic joke?

I dont think you should be too hard on the BBC, its a simple continuity error.

The poor old Beeb are still reeling from being outed for pre-announcing the collapse of World Trade Centre 7 by 23 minutes as a consequence of 'fires'. It was hardly their fault if the demolition team were late in setting off the charges - but you have to agree it was a damn fine job when it finally came down.

Perhaps it was a mistake.

I remember years ago on BBC Breakfast News watching four cllrs being interviewed before the Locals. The captions underneath ran < name >, Labour, LibDem, Green, Extreme Right Conservative.

About 20 mins later the newsreader apologised that a 'back room editors indication' of where the Tory was standing on the screen had 'inadvertently' been shown.

By then the damage was done; tens of thousands of people had assumed that the guy was a raving loon, and I was bitterly regretting not living in his ward and being able to vote for him.

The BBC were almost right.
David Cameron (Blu Labour).

Surely "Unknown" would have been more accurate!

The BBC are best placed to recognise "Dave" as one of their own, being largely staffed with Pinkoes. No mistake was made here and we should be grateful that the BBC has got it right for a change.

I knew Dave was a closet commie!
