Having seen clips from last week’s Question Time and some of the coverage of the Red Ed vs. The Daily Mail issue, I wonder if the BBC has plumbed new depths. Mired in new scandals over payouts for failure, sex crime cover ups and much more besides the real issues are:
Firstly that the taxpayer funded broadcaster produced either the sort of rubbish (everything on radio 1 for example) which should be the domain of the private sector. If there is a demand for this sort or garbage why should the taxpayer subsidise it? If not then since it is rubbish why produce it at all?
And secondly that the news coverage is anything but impartial. How the audience cheered as the panel bashed the Mail on QT? How the BBC ignored both the facts of this non story and also the double standards in the way that Red Ed had treated those who gloated over the death of Thatcher? Why should my taxes fund propaganda? By the way is the BBC still insisting that the planet is heating up thanks to global warming?
As such I invite your captions for the picture below. Please post your captions in the comments section by Friday at 9 AM

The BBC insists that Alan Shearer really adds value on MOTD
