quite right... the apparent obsession with balance at the BBC means that 1% is converted into 50%, and the other 99% into 50%, ie balance goes out of the window. Whatever we think of George Orwell his time at the BBC seems to have been well reflected in '1984'....

  "But what is clear is that after 10 years in office, the opposition are still going to need a lot more than a candidate with a pretty face to defeat him."
  This is how the report ends. What is the BBC trying to say? There is very little about the major changes that have taken place over last 10 years. So it is a seeming impartial report with a more or less clear partiality in favour of the so called USA paid, CIA supported opposition.
