Not my image: Somebody else made this – indicating that concerns over the BBC’s claim to impartiality are well-founded.

We learn two things from this: That Conservatives are appallingly bad businesspeople, and that the BBC is their propaganda arm.

I know; we really knew both those things already.

But the fact that the Tories are willing to sell our NHS, our rights as workers and as human beings, our environmental standards and our consumer protections for a paltry 0.1 per cent increase in the economy, 15 years down the line, deserves highlighting.

So does the fact that the BBC was perfectly happy to tell the rest of the world about this failure, but has refused to mention it to the people it directly affects – the citizens of the United Kingdom.

The economy is already stuttering in the face of Brexit, so it seems unlikely that such a tiny gain will even offset what the UK is losing this year.

As for the BBC, I wonder if Ofcom is aware of this?

This week, the BBC broadcast information that casts a chilling light on Tory claims that a UK-US trade deal will have a significant impact on the UK’s economy.

However, this was not the BBC informing the UK. Instead, the BBC World Service, primarily aimed at overseas listeners, broadcast the information that the government’s own analysis suggests that a UK-US trade deal will bring only 0.1% growth in the UK’s economy fifteen years from now
