The BBC finally report on Clive Lewis's shameful remarks but only once they've got Clive Lewis's response.
'A Labour MP has apologised for using "offensive and unacceptable" language at an event last month.' we are told here
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-41697615 with the clear subtext that that's the end of the matter, nothing to worry about, let's draw a veil over the matter.
Now imagine that this had been a Conservative MP rather than a Labour MP, would an apology be enough to quell the outrage? I think not, the BBC would scent blood and would go for the Conservative MP's jugular.
Luckily for Clive Lewis, he's a Labour MP, a black Labour MP indeed and thus will be protected by the Labour Party's propaganda arm, the BBC.
It seems that Clive Lewis has form in this area, this from the BBC in April 2015:
'An election candidate has apologised for joking that he "could be caught with my pants down behind a goat with Ed Miliband at the other end".
Labour's Clive Lewis, who is standing in Norwich South, made the comment in an interview with the New Statesman.'
Now it's personal!
