      All parties are biased against all other parties.
      The question was whether the media – the BBC, ITV, Sky, all the papers and any other news-purveyors – are biased against Labour.

    “Labour party people need to stop whining about media bias and start thinking about why they’re not doing better, and why UKIP, who are supposed to be ex-Tory voters, are gaining so many votes in Labour areas”

    I disagree with alittleecon on this – a short-sighted view that ignores the demonization of all things Labour have stood for, and what they did in government, and the personal vilification of “weird” Milliband etc. . Usually I find I can see merit in most of what they post as an opinion, even if I disagree, but this time I do not find any points to agree with. The bias against Labour has been breath taking in it’s audacity and ubiquity.

    Even after the final London results for local and the European results on Sunday, there was a slight movement to the occasional reference to “Labour gains”, usually as a preface to then to more projected negativity of the “let’s do some what-iffery”.

    Labour’s comment on their results from Ed Milliband in the main BBC News was edited to part of a sentence. Not even a whole sentence, but a part that could not be understood in the context it was presented. Absolutely disgusting.

    The really good news – equally unreported – is that there are enough voters out there who seem immune to this corrupt political control of our media, and decided to vote for Labour.

    The most intriguing aspect of the media control must be seen, if that is the right word, in the total invisibility of any reference to Tory losses. Hammersmith & Fulham? Tories going from 1st to 3rd in the EU elections, the first time they have not been the majority returned? Nothing.

    But one final thought. Did anyone notice that Parliament has been suspended for 2 weeks? Allegedly because Cameron & Osborne didn’t want their MPs being able to congregate & plot against them. Now, what does that say about the Corporatist Tyranny? What is actually being plotted by them without Parliament sitting?

    Of course the BBC are blatantly biased against Labour as are most of their political presenters,the worst one being Dimbleby on QT, but he’s not on his own! I’m in a huge political group on Facebook and its commented on at least 50 times a day! I’ve emailed them numerous times about it. My latest email was only last Friday, I said that as Labour has so many votes this time, did they not worry about how many people they are alienating and who could pull out of paying their licence? Still what can you expect, the big noises at the BBC are all ex private schoolboys, only last week Nick Robinson their political reporter lost his mobile and caused a security threat as it had Dodgy Daves private number on it???????

    Ukip was getting the smear campaign from the media labour were being touted as the party that would get the most votes and seats, so why is labour whinging?
