Had to laugh at BBC1 Morning News today. There was an item on how wonderful Alistair “Spend Spend Spend!” Darling’s pre-meltdown mini-budget was, with a spokesman from accountants Ernest & Young. It all started well but then – gasp horror – the E&Y man pointed out the shocking state of UK public finances prior to the current financial troubles. This was met with a rapid “moving along quickly” response from the BBC presenter – since the Beeb narrative does not allow for a recognition that Prudence never actually existed and that Public finances were recklessly managed over the past 11 years. There is also a general BBC acceptance that taxing “the rich” till the pips squeak is a socially responsible act from the tax thieves in power. I also noted that the BBC is constantly stating that the Government is “being honest” with us all. What rubbish – the Government has been lying through its teeth and the farcical notion that we are now entering an era of truthfulness shows just how detached the BBC is.
DON’T MENTION THE PUBLIC FINANCES
