The introduction of the living wage has exposed the BBC’s political bias in many ways.
It should be a good news story but the BBC are asking questions and allowing the negative truths of the effects of the living wage to be aired. Funny that – after all the BBC’s suppression of facts running up to the last general election, and the campaign for a national living wage given lots of prominence during that period last year, we NOW begin to get the FACTS about the economic implications of the introduction of a living wage!
What changed? Have the BBC come to their senses?
Nope. It’s a Tory living wage and not a Labour living wage, so it’s open season on the policy itself. The BBC are now – belatedly – happy to speak to experts and academics who raise awareness of the dangers of a living wage.
That’s new! What? The BBC??? Allowing people on air who put the ideology of a living wage into doubt? Shooorley not!
The living wage is not a new idea, as we already know. So why haven’t the BBC exposed the economic dangers of a living wage up until now? (I won’t ask for the answer to that, because we all know it already.)
Something that has made me laugh recently is the response from those socialist, economically Illiterate, unionist… you get my drift… NUMBSKULL BULLIES! … is how they’re trying to redefine the actual term – as if they have a choice in how much unskilled labour is worth!
Here’s an example of what happens when the BBC refer to a government initiative by its official name – “living wage”.
How many times did the BBC refer to the “spare room subsidy” as the “bedroom tax”?
