Now, according to your BBC biography here you joined the BBC in 1983, right in the middle of the era of anti-Thatcher bias. Did you not notice? Or did you regard "massive bias to the left" (Thompson's words) as being exactly the sort of impartiality that the BBC should provide?
Thompson, of course, would like us to believe that it's all different now. A shame then that Jim Naughtie can't be bothered to conceal his pro-Labour and anti-Conservative bias - but then he is a former Chief Political Correspondent for The Guardian so what can you expect?
I wouldn't care how biased you choose to be, if I weren't forced to pay a tax that finances your pro-Labour agenda - but since I am then I care very much.
