Letters: BBC is ‘ministry of propaganda for the Labour Party’

So Chris Wheeldon thinks I gave misdirection and projection in my assessment of the BBC? No, it’s just my opinion from what I see (“BBC board made up of Conservative backers”, September 5).

I had a good laugh at his assessment that the BBC was a mouthpiece for the Tories. Was that one of Joe Lycett’s jokes?

He’s the guy brought in on the relaunched flagship politics show, hosted by Ms Kuenssberg, someone thought it would be a good idea to have a left-wing comedian on to mock and make sarcastic comments, even former editors thought it wrong, shows how deep in the cesspit they’re willing to go.

Also at the weekend, we had a special edition of Have I Got News For You. I once enjoyed that show mocking in a satirical way, but this programme was sick, with nasty comments and foul-mouth hate for Boris Johnson on leaving office.

It’s not the people at the top, though Tim Davies did a commission study into the BBC, impartiality doesn’t seem to work very well. Is a rant on Brexit the mother of all things that can be laid at its door? I would love to know the difference between a Brexit voting Tory, or a Brexit voting Labour voter, against an ordinary one.

The problem with parts of Brexit is because of people like him, six years and still whinging and trying to sabotage it, along with all the others who got hundreds of thousands of pounds from having their noses in the trough.

Finally, Emily Maitlis is a well-known left-wing Labour supporter who hates the Tories. She had more complaints and had to stand down for her biased reporting, so having left her £260,000 job at the Beeb, she now criticises them, so I don’t think I’ll be watching.

Maybe he would like to review the hours, days, weeks, and months of coverage of Boris’s so-called parties against the five minutes on Starmer’s curry night. All this can be solved.

The BBC could report anything it likes by going independent, and we could save our money. Until then, it’s the ministry of propaganda for the Labour Party.
