This is why politics needs the social media – you can’t trust the mainstream news sources to provide balanced coverage any more.

They attack sites like Pride’s Purge, claiming they are produced by people who are “not proper reporters”, and then published biased material like this.

And then they claim – with ever-more improbably vehemence – to be impartial!

It’s all just further proof that This Writer – and I am a “proper reporter”, by the way – was lucky not to have been employed by BBC Online back in the 1990s.

I work in the social media, where high-quality news reporting remains the norm, not the exception.

What’s happening with the BBC?

They seem to have come over all right-wing tabloidy.

A bizarre report by the BBC today claims the UK economy will be given a £135bn annual boost’ by a hard Brexit.

In its article, the BBC extensively quotes infamous Thatcherite economist Patrick Minford, who is the lead author of a report urging the hardest of hard Brexits from pro-Brexit campaign group Economists for Free Trade.

[But the BBC has been] completely censoring failing to mention any of the extremely negative consequences of the group’s proposals, as predicted by Professor Minford himself.

Namely, for example, that the hard Brexit proposed by the group will eliminate UK manufacturing.

And the BBC report also completely omits the fact that Professor Minford is happy to see the UK car industry “run down” after a hard Brexit.

Or that – according to Minford – there will be large increases in wage inequality after a hard Brexit. Or to put it another way, poorer workers will be paid less.

Minford’s methodologies have also been widely debunked – something else the BBC fail to mention.

Why doesn’t the BBC report the stated negative affects of a hard-Brexit, as stated by hard-Brexiters themselves?
