The impartial Nick Robinson?

This morning Lobby briefing:

Asked whether the Prime Minister agreed with his minister that this was the worst turndown since the great depression of the 1930s, Mr Brown's spokesman said: "We have not seen its like for many, many years.

Nick Robinson’s blog:

He didn't mean to say it, but he did mean it.

When Ed Balls delivered a speech on Saturday to a regional Labour Party Conference, he hadn't planned to say that "the reality is that this is becoming the most serious global recession for, I'm sure, over 100 years" - but he did mean what he said.


What we have here is Government spin overlaid with BBC spin.

Any other interpretations?

  1. That was my interpretation when I read it earlier.

    Standard stuff at the Beeb, of course, and Robinson is one of the prime players in the "Brown Broadcasting Corp" political news/comment dept.

    I do hope youy keep an eye on Biased BBC
