I'm sure I cannot be alone in thinking that the standard of reportage on the BBC is plumbing new depths of bias and crass insensitivity.
During the recent days, the reporting of Labour Party issues and particularly where they concern Jeremy Corbyn or John McDonnell has brought out the worst in the reporters, and in particular, Emily Maitliss, and Laura Kuenssberg of Newsnight, followed closely by Allegra Stratton.
The floods in Cumberland have brought out new lows in the maner of questioning and reporting.
One poor man on last night's news who had been completely flooded out for the second time was being questioned about his experience.
The reporter was leaning against the door frame in a casual manner, asking 'How do you feel'?
He could see the poor guy he was questioning was distraught, turning away to hide his tears.
The whole episode was so awful and insensitive, had I been the poor victim I would have punched the reporter on the nose and asked him how he felt.
The BBC clearly received a lot of critical calls, because by News at Ten, the piece had been taken down.
Another reporter was asking the occupants of a house who were having to stay upstairs because their ground floor was completely flooded.
'What's it like down there?' he asked.
Again, you could see the obvious distress on the faces of the occupants. I wonder how the reporter would have felt if the answer had been 'soaking wet you fucking idiot'!
That's the problem, ordinary people are too polite when confronted with a camera and a microphone.
Get a grip BBC and smarten up your act. People's misfortune is not a scoop opportunity for your reptiles!
