When the Conservatives called Blair a liar over Iraq before the last election,the BBC was up in arms(!) about it.'You can't accuse the Prime Minister of lying without absolute proof!' --The well known Suez precedent tells us these operations are conducted by word of mouth.THERE WON'T BE ANY PROOF!!The people outraged over the obvious cobbled together falseness of the Government's 'intelligence' were denied an outlet by which to mock its absurdity.This cloak that deflects criticism of the Government also allows their frequent relaunches.The man in the street can see the Emperor has no clothes but the lack of proof** stops BBC comment and denies the common sense man in the street an outlet to air his mockery.NOW the BBC hold an 'impartiality summit'.It's not their consciences that are talking but real fear of losing their pay cheques after having disenfranchised too many people.
** I've substituted 'proof' for 'evidence' here as that is what I meant to say!! I posted the original to the 'BBC Editors' and with horror realized I couldn't change it.I can here.
