The BBC are terrified of what the Tories might do to them, so they are effectively operating as their official mouthpiece. Under their current pusillanimous Director General, appointed for his sheer lack of likelihood of ever taking a stand on anything, the organisation is effectively ruled by the fear of Rupert Murdoch’s will being enacted by Cameron and co in a fit of spite.
This presumably explains tonights Newsnight presentation of the latest disaster in the saga that is the history of the current regime of Tory + Tory Pets. The Conservative deputy leader Michael Fallon (who?) was merely one of a panel composed of various Tory and New Labour drones discussing the implications of the ‘review’ of Cameron’s demolition of the NHS. No significant figure was confronted with the significance of this hiatus.
This is an incredibly cock-up prone government. Their every initiative has gone wrong, every prediction has come back to daddy with its tail between its legs. But the BBC can be relied upon at every turn to allow the current government some ersatz threads of dignity, instead of fulfilling their duty to put together a consistent narrative of what the the Conservatives and their little friends have tried to to do us and the ways they have revealed themselves to be failures even at class-based demolition.
