Anti Lib-Dem bias of Diane Abbott

If it’s not enough to have two Lab/Tory talking heads on tonights’ This Week it’s even more unfortunate that Diane Abbott is allowed to parade her deliberate ignorance or subconcious ignorance of the Lib Dems on that show.

I complained before about that programme’s lack of airing of a Lib Dem counter-balance when it came to the Economy – now Diane Abbott said `the thing is for Labour voters there are other places where they can go – the Greens in Brighton, BNP in Burnley` yet Andrew Neil never picked her up on the following:

Burnley has a LIBERAL DEMOCRAT RUN COUNCIL, 5 LIBERAL DEMOCRAT COUNTY COUNCILLORS and may soon have a LIBERAL DEMOCRAT MP.

I’ve sent an email to the BBC asking for this to be clarified and to invite a Burnley Liberal Democrat on to the show to explain how one can SUCCESFULLY kick the BNP out of town.

  1. Do you really expect any NuLabor spokesperson to push forward either of the other two major parties as an alternative to themselves?
    As for Neil, if you want to hear real bias then listen to QT on radio 4 every Friday evening with Dimbleby in the chair. He has been seeking his peerage from his masters for years now.

  2. […] The BBC responds on Diane Abbott complaint Earlier this month I blogged this posting […]

  3. Many years ago, when I was a Lambeth councillor – the only woman in the Lib/SDP Alliance group – I was invited to speak at a council International Women’s Day event. The only thing I can remember about it is Diane Abbott – a Lambeth employee at the time – sitting in the front row and talking to her neighbour the whole time I was speaking.
