What time is it, Eccles?
The Beeb has asserted “The sources for the new revelations were not the doctors who appeared in the programme”. So their political affiliation was irrelevant to those revelations. Moreover, “Some of those interviewed are members of a political party and some are not. We believe that if the doctors featured in Panorama feel their lives are at risk due to lack of proper PPE it is valid, and indeed in the public interest, for them to reflect on that experience, regardless of the political views they may or may not hold”.
It does not. What part of “Some of those interviewed are members of a political party and some are not” does Harwood not understand? Worse, membership does not equal activism. Harwood has no evidence to back up the “activist” claim. So he just lies.
On he drones. “They are still not commenting specifically on the *communist* trade union organiser who is claiming to have helped producers recruit participants”. Who does Harwood think he is, a real journalist? If he does, why not try doing some actual journalism, rather than expecting the BBC to spoon-feed him so he can kick them?
That’s because he’s trying to deflect from Government failings - by lying for his supper.
