BBC is trumpeting ‘free internet access’ from Tories – but it was ‘broadband communism’ when Labour proposed it

“Blatantly Backing Conservatives”: and don’t expect better when the new Director General – a former Tory election candidate whose name This Writer can’t even be bothered to remember – takes over.

How two-faced of the Tory Broadcasting Corporation.

Free access to broadband internet connections was an election policy of the Labour Party under Jeremy Corbyn last year.

At that time, the BBC called it “broadband communism”.

But now, with the Conservatives offering it (albeit only for a brief time, through a voucher system), it’s “free internet to help poorer pupils”.

Oh yes, this is an emergency measure because of Covid-19 and the lockdown – but it represents hypocrisy by our state broadcaster nonetheless.

Many thousands of people have stopped paying their TV licence fee because of blatant partisanship by the Tory-run BBC News; this proves they have a point.

And with a newly-appointed Director General who used to be a Conservative election candidate, this situation is only likely to get worse.

We want facts; we get propaganda.

And the nation goes to the dogs.
