A couple of weeks ago I noted that Boris Johnson loathes BBC News, despite previously having said that he doesn’t watch it much. Johnson said:
“the prevailing view of Beeb newsrooms is, with honourable exceptions, statist, corporatist, defeatist, anti-business, Europhile and, above all, overwhelmingly biased to the Left.”
Today Boris Johnson has hired a BBC journalist as his chief spinner, replacing former BBC Chief Political Correspondent Guto Harri.
That follows David Cameron hiring Andy Coulson’s successor from the Beeb too.
Oh – and the political editor of the BBC is a former president of the Oxford University Conservative Association and one-year National Chairman of the Young Conservatives.
They all did jolly well to succeed in an organisation “overwhelmingly biased to the Left” didn’t they?
