Did I sleep through the bit where the BBC's charter was changed to allow it to spend public money on blatant activism ? There's no other word to describe its saturation coverage of the topic of gay footballers. The man on the Clapham omnibus does not spend his days agonising about the sexuality of Fulchester's No 10 - it's a completely articifical scandal cooked up in the BBC's PC laboratory. After last Thursdays 'Gay Day', they're back again, with another publically-funded innuendo fest. I guess licence payers will have to wait a bit longer to find out the number of openly Conservative people employed at the BBC.
