The SKWAWKBOX has covered Tory Jacob Rees-Mogg’s disgraceful dismissal of working-class hardship and poverty as ‘balderdash‘ today, when he was challenged by Labour MP Jon Trickett to debate the grinding poverty and shortening life expectancy of poor people in the north.
But the BBC’s response was no less disgraceful. As Boris Johnson’s front-bencher arrogantly poured scorn on the plight of poor people – including more than four million children, the broadcaster chose instead to tweet about Rees-Mogg’s comments on… eating Weetabix with baked beans:
An object lesson in the incessant and inbuilt bias of the BBC and other so-called ‘mainstream’ media.
