When the Conservative minister Andrew Mitchell was accused of using the word 'plebs' the BBC went into one of its sanctimonious, affronted fervours. The story was headline news for weeks, if not months. Andrw Mitchell was condemned for elitism and rudeness.
However when there is evidence that a candidate for the Labour leadership, Chuka Umunna, used the word 'trash' to describe most of the denizens of West End night clubs there was no criticism on the BBC and there's certainly been no mention of it in any of the recent glowing pen portraits of the 'British Obama'.
The BBC's political bias here, a in many other instances, is clear and obvious, hopefully John Whittingdale will actually take some action against the BBC for their blatant political bias.
