BBC taken over by the Thatcherites

It's been a few years since I regularly listened to the BBC news. It was a lot more fun listening on shortwave, but the BBC stopped broadcasting to North America. I now sporadically listen to the News Hour podcast using the BBC app on my iPod Touch and iPhone. 

I was horrified by this morning's News Hour when I heard the presenter, Robin Lustig, advocate the "confidence fairy" policy for reviving economic growth. The Tories have really managed to destroy the BBC, just as the Republicans destroyed NPR in the United States. Very, very sad.
