Who do they think they are? From Lord Black of Crossharbour
SIR: The BBC is pathologically hostile to the Government and official opposition, most British institutions, well-polished shoes, American policy in almost every field, stamp-collectors, Israel, moderation in Ireland, lightly boiled new potatoes, the colour mauve, freedom of speech in the Isle of Wight, all Western religions, most odd numbers between 32 and 57, sun-roofs on Ford Escorts, Crunchy Nut Cornflakes, most manifestations of the free market economy and household gadgets of every kind. And it doesn’t end there. The BBC is also pathologically paranoid, and I am now referring particularly to those of its staff who persist in hiding in my cupboards.
