'Evil bankers' unless they're a Labour supporting banker

Imagine the furore is David Cameron had made a banker a peer in the recent list of appointments. The Labour party and their propaganda arm, the BBC would be screaming about the Tory party being in the pay of bankers and the city fatcats who caused the economic crash. Now have you noticed any such complaining about the peerage given by the Labour party to Sir Charles Allen? The BBC's report on the peerages manages this:
'Doreen Lawrence, the mother of murdered teenager Stephen Lawrence, leads five Labour nominations for peerages, which also include businessmen Sir William Haughey and Sir Charles Allen.'
A businessman? Somehow I think if he had been a Conservative appointee the BBC would have been mentioning that he is a senior adviser to Goldman Sachs Private Equity.
