The One Show's PPB On Behalf of the Labour Party
Nice to see the BBC's One Show doing the Labour Party's dirty work for it. Last night they showed a 5 minute film which might as well have been a Labour Party Political Broadcast. Click HERE and scroll in 14 mins 20 secs, and see what you think. They ask the question: Is David Cameron too much of a toff to be Prime Minister?
It seems I am not alone in thinking this went too far. There have been quite a few complaints on the BBC website. Each one that mentioned the film by Kaye Adams criticised it for being biased. The ubiquitous Kevin Maguire was interviewed, natch. The only people putting the opposite point of view were either stereotypes or there to be made fun of.
I hope that CCHQ willk be making a formal complaint.
UPDATE: Oh, and Kaye Adams, you're a hypocrite. In the film, she says she's a working class girl. The truth of the matter is that she went to a fee paying private girls school. Posh gob, or what? Is she fit to presenting a prolier-than-thou programme with a toff background like that? I think we should be told...
UPDATE: It turns out Kaye Adams lives in a £750,000 house in Glasgow and drives a £75,000 Porsche Cayenne. A working class girl, indeed. I just looked at her house on Google Earth. More like a mansion. That a toff might live in.
