    Not difficult to beat all records when records only began in 2001 and we are suffering the first sustained jump in inflation for decades. 73K more on payrolls and vacancies beginning to fall is the more positive spin on today’s work stats.

    You’re right to be suspicious of roles that don’t directly fit with an organisations core function Al. The fact is somewhere in the NHS upper hierarchy, there will be a non-customer facing n0bber getting chuck-up after chuck-up for dreaming up the need for roles like this. The liberal left’s...

    In the face of the bias of one of their top news presenters, yes. 🤷‍♂️ Sorry DB, is your point now that because the Beeb has sanctioned the wrongdoing of one its people, the left leaning culture that pervades (IMO) the likes of the BBC doesn’t exist or is somehow excused?

    You’ve already posted that you read on Wiki that she was pinged by her bosses at the Beeb. You’re so intent on arguing the toss you’ve forgotten what you’ve already written it seems.

    Again, stop moving the goalposts. If you work for the Beeb in news, you are expected to show impartiality even in your personal SM accounts, and in the case of Maitlis is was her comments on air that was the problem. Why is that so hard for you admit?

    Maitlis was literally pinged for just that.

    Although GBN doesnt have the onerous constraints that public service broadcasters like C4 and the Beeb enjoys, I do admit to being confused as to how OFCOM deals with channels outside of those two. I guess just as there is no problem with the politics of two Tory MP’s presenting on GBN, there’s...

    ……..or conversely why entertain a news programme where the presenters struggle to contain their personal bias. On GB News, apart from the chosen minister doing the breakfast rounds and the odd set piece recorded interview I can’t remember a situation where they’ve managed to bag a minister to...

    If you remember you challenged me on my contention that the broadcast media has a general liberal leaning bias, I then provided you at your request with a couple cases where that bias was evident and you’re now saying that because the organisations they work for found against them, that proves...

    I believe the BBC rules on the impartiality of its TV news presenters covers their personal social media accounts too.

    When did I say their bias was only evident in interviews? Maitlis got pinged for straying into commentary re. a diatribe about Cummings and lock down and Snow got caught singing an anti-Tory song at Glasto.

    We’re not taking ancient history here DB, both these supposed impartial journalists have transgressed in the recent past. You asked me for examples and I’ve provided them, don’t start moving the goalposts to suit. From memory the Beeb’s Naga Munchetty also got pinged recently for liking an...

    Maitlis and Jon Snow? BTW, not denying BJ’s Government’s reluctance to get down and dirty with certain journalists, however the line “the Government has no one available for comment” has not begun and will not end with this government. The thing with the old school TV journalists of the...

    You’ve obviously not been looking hard enough. I think I’m right in saying Government ministers are still refusing to go on C4 News and BBC Newsnight such is their perceived bias, as evidenced by Emily Maitlis’s public dressing down by her BBC bosses for bias and Jon Snow’s anti-Tory Glasto...

    …….and you could argue that a right leaning dominated written press is a welcome foil to an overwhelmingly liberal leaning bias that we see in broadcast/online media and arts/entertainment sectors.

    Barnett is the price Westminster is willing to pay to keep the Union together, if it went I don’t see the Union lasting very long. But you’re right, it’s a borderline obsession with me but has little or no cut through with the English electorate generally, although a lot more people of aware of...

    Thanks Al.👍 Taking of political anathema, I’m having trouble getting across to DB the fear in England of a Sturgeon reliant Westminster government Al, can you help?

    I think the Tories would prefer a period in opposition to a situation where they would offer that to the LD’s.
