The BBC has repeatedly described her today merely as a former chairwoman of the Joint Intelligence Committee. What can this mean?
- The BBC has got wind of another member of the Shadow Cabinet who is being sacked and is dropping a large-size hint;
- The BBC, in another example of its pro-Tory bias, is quoting her as an “independent” expert, when really she is a mouth-piece of the Conservative Party; or
- BBC news editors are so incompetent that they don’t realise that she is a member of the Shadow Cabinet.
I know which I think is the more likely.
