And talking of the BBC.....

Contrary to liberal strawmen, few people on the right claim that the BBC top brass issue actual talking points to their staff each day. Nope, the truth is actually worse. The BBC's recruitment pool is so narrow that their staff don't need any prodding to take the leftist position - they simply don't think there are any others. All of which wouldn't be so bad, if we didn't have to listen to one of the most monolithic institutions in the country lecture everyone else about diversity!

All of which is by way of saying that the BBC Pioneers' Heroes of Socialist Broadcasting series reminds us just how fast the revolving door spins between Nu Lab and our independent state broadcaster.
