Naughty Auntie!!

The BBC is sometimes quite willing to take on tabloid jounalism when it suits. This is a headline on their News site.

"Lib Dem donor faces jail sentence"

Now what do you think on first reading. That the LibDems are the first to get into the courts over cash-for-peerages? I wouldn't blame you if you did! But its nothing of the sort!

Further down the page it says "......but there is no suggestion the court case has anything to do with the party." No, but the BBC headline suggests otherwise.

If we are to get back to decent politics, perhaps the Beeb is the best place to start!
