Those accusing the BBC of ‘Tory bias’ have short memories.
Greg Dyke, made directorgeneral by Tony Blair in 1999, resigned from the Labour Party the day after he was appointed; he was also a Labour donor to the tune of £50,000, which
back then was a small fortune. Gavyn Davies, who was chairman between 2001 and 2004, was also a Labour donor, and his wife, sue Nye, was Gordon Brown’s political secretary. When it comes to BBC bias, I’m afraid Labour wrote the book.
