Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
My guess too.

Dimbleby accused the media of anyti-Corbyn bias yesterday, so I'm wondering what's going on there - it's  a bit like Satan accusing the home help of turning the heating up too high.

Maybe the ex-Bullingdon Tory boy is trying to hang on to the last tatters of his alleged BBC impartiality by a faux day late dollar short protest about how nasty everybody is being.

Or maybe some people in the BBC are getting worried about blowback if Corbyn wins. It's not just the long list of tory personalities in the senior ranks at BBC News, it's the almost complete absence of any Labour people.

I was thinking about this today, after a Tory troll had a go at me for pointing out the obvious Tory bias.

The bias is absolutely unquestionable. As you say, there are exactly zero household name BBC journalists who aren't Tory supporters.

Labour gets some support among comedians and other entertainers, but the mainstream news teams have become a Tory closed shop.

Thanks for confirming my suspicions. That is the sort of development that occurs before some major development.
