    The green party has got all the presence of a voles cock. I'm not surprised they aren't invited.

    He (Jon) was interviewed on R4 a couple of weeks ago - I think Humphreys just opened the microphone, lit a fag and put his feet on the desk whilst this clown waffled on about companies avoiding corporation tax on their turnover and gazillions of pounds of dividends being sucked out of the economy.

    I reckon the BBC are probably striking a reasonable balance since everyone desperate enough to take to the internet to bleat about them accuses them of being biased against their particular deviance.

    Anyone watch this

    On Thursday May 11th the BBC upped the right-wing bias even further by planting an actual serving Tory Party councillor called Eric Holford in the audience, inviting him to ask the very first question of the show (in which he slagged off the Labour Party) and even letting him to make several comebacks against the panellists and legitimate members of the audience.
    ...
    At one point the host David Dimbleby even assisted the Tory plant Eric Holford in interrupting and shouting down a genuine member of the public who was complaining about the inflation in rail prices since privatisation!
    ...
    You don't have to be an expert on politics to understand that BBC Question Time has become incredibly right-wing biased over the last decade or so.

    Anyone who has watched the show in recent years will have noticed the way that the host David Dimbleby repeatedly hectors and interrupts Labour Party politicians and socially progressive panellists, whilst taking a much more lenient approach to right-wing politicians and commentators.

    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    The BBC’s coverage of Nigel Farage during the Brexit Referendum was disproportionally high. Even Post referendum there hardly seems to be day go by without Farage on radio or TV. Since May has come to power, the BBC has clearly changed to support her right wing stance.

    I will never forget the government pressure on the BBC at the time of the Iraq invasion and the consequences leading to Gregg Dykes forced resignation by the government.

    The new policy of the BBC shifts with government policy, post Brexit the news has changed to make Brexit seem fluffy, cuddly and nice. The 48% pro-remain are treated as if they don’t exist.
    Brexiteers remind me of religious fanatics, only faith, no facts.

    Exactly, they suck up to any powerbase that allows them to continue their overpaid, bloated, existence.

    Farage - like it or loath it - was probably the most influential person with regards Brexit coming about.

    What's odd is if you visit the comments section on the Guardian and they'd all agree with you. Visit the comments section of Guido Fawkes and they'd virulently disagree with you. Make of it what you will.

    The BBC desperately wants the polls to get closer so people will keep paying attention to them. They don't care as much about who wins as they care about their own importance. And they won't be important leading up to the election if it is a total rout.

    So they want to narrow the polls, so their election coverage will be important and urgent and you must watch.

    If the wacky Greens get air time, they'll pull support from Labour, which will make the wipeout even worse. Better to give time to UKIP in the hopes they can chisel one or two percentage points away from the Tories.
