The appalling treatment of The Queen and the spooning of responsibility to RDF§ provides yet more evidence that the BBC is chock full of self-loathers. With the scandals about phone-ins, it shows they have demagnetized their moral compasses, if they were ever magnetized in the first place.
Nothing short of a flame-thrower will resolve that.
I imagine being a Libertarian or Conservative in the BBC is like being one of the Marines in "Aliens" trying to rescue Newt. As many as you kill they keep on coming and Auntie Beeb sits deep in the bowels of Broadcasting House laying hundreds and thousands more of them.
"Game over, man...Game OVER!"
§ RDF, in Apple terms means "reality distortion field" - the one that envelopes Steve Jobs when he is in full flow.
