Jeremy Corbyn, 50,000 protest to the BBC for bias in referring to Jeremy Corbyn as the left-wing leader of the Labour Party!
It is wrong for the BBC to refer to Jeremy Corbyn as left-wing although is as left-wing as it is possible to be, seemingly it would also be wrong to insist that the BBC refer to David Cameron as right-wing because he certainly isn’t.
The BBC are showing their usual bias again although in an unusual way because their known bias is usually against the Conservative Party, they are apparently constantly referring to Jeremy Corbyn as the left-wing leader of the Labour Party, he is quite obviously as left-wing as it is possible to be but he should ONLY be referred to or introduced as Jeremy Corbyn, Leader of the Labour Party.
the Conservative Party are though treading very heavily on the graves and dreams of the far left but you don’t have to be anywhere near right-wing to achieve that.
The protesters have insisted that if this continues the BBC should refer to David Cameron as Prime Minister right-wing leader of the Conservative Party, this is of course wrong on 2 counts, firstly for the same reason it is wrong to refer to Jeremy Corbyn as left wing and secondly because he is patently not right-wing, in fact you can only call the whole Conservative Party as right-of-centre!
To continue this theme, it is also not correct to refer to any of the policies being introduced by this Conservative Government as right-wing, as some commenters insist on doing, the policies are all basically essential, common-sense, pragmatic policies, the Conservative Party are though treading very heavily on the graves and dreams of the far left but you don’t have to be anywhere near right-wing to achieve that.
The interesting thing going forward is how the BBC cover the EU referendum next year, to keep within the BBC charter the BBC have to be totally neutral in their presentation, we will see
