Is this still an issue? It would be interesting to know what democratic credentials the regulators have.

Yes thankyou Mr. Milliband (non-Labourites can enjoy Charlie Brooker too!)

It is clear what our policy is - To come on the radio and TV to tell the world about Horrible Tory Policy and get the blame for them. R4 Today actually asked Paul Burstow (one of our MPs that have been borrowed by the Tories) why every time there is bad news a Liberal Democrat comes and tells it - He then went on to say something very similar to 'are you just bullet proof clothing for the Tories'. I love it (not)- again our representative couldn’t be swayed to telling the truth (i.e. ‘you lot were slow getting there wasn’t you) and instead went on a rambling excuse for his terrible behaviour. Noting as well Gove came out and announced our policy about kids premium (which is a con anyway isn’t it because instead of giving poor people more it will tend to give working class kids less) it is now really obvious what our purpose in government it. Clegg has given us to the Tories to take the Flack so we get the blame and they don’t. This isn’t just a rash thought, just look at what has happened over the last 6 months and this is the only logical conclusion that can be drawn,

It might be time to take up the cudgels again

BBC Breakfast this morning featured the march against higher education cuts/fees with discussion with 2 people on the sofa but both pro the march and against the government and no balance at all. I happen to oppose the fees rise but I was left very annoyed but this blatant bias.

I hope it's OK if I share here a couple of links regarding media impartiality:

Of course The Guardian naturally wants to criticise News International, but I think we should indeed be a lot more worried about all of this than we seem to be!

Clegg and Olly Grender are on BBC Breakfast tomorrow morning

Please add comments positive comments - don't let the idiots who can see no further than party politics fill the page with stupid comments. There are a lot of us, if we take 5 minutes each we can fill the page up :-)

Tbh, the best way to get BBC people to react is to hang out individual presenters or producers in the print media or online - name and shame, they understand that.

While they never EVER admit to anything if you contact them directly, you'll often find that subtle changes miraculously start to appear after a month or two...
