After watching PMQs Wednesday John Sargent writes:
In the lunchtime TV news following today's PMQs, rather than focusing on the fact that Theresa May either could not or would not answer perfectly reasonable questions from Jeremy Corbyn, why did the report instead feature her bullying, hectoring personal attack on him?
I would have thought it was more newsworthy at this time to hold Mrs May and her government to account for the past six years - the bulletin should have reflected the fact that she had no answers and could not defend her government's actions or the distress and inequality that has been caused as a result of those actions.
Does the BBC really equate refusal to answer, refusal to debate or the aggressive verbal bullying and insulting behaviour she displayed with being a strong leader?
It is my belief that just one of the chief protagonists in this election deserves the title of 'strong leader' and he demonstrates that week in week out regardless of the personal attacks made on him which are repeated by the conservative media.
Today's bulletin was yet another surreptitious attempt to undermine a very powerful, principled man who has all the right values to deliver a fairer and decent society for all of us. If you are concerned about the plight of education, about the crisis in the NHS; if you care about the old, the disabled, the vulnerable; if you are appalled that there are food banks and more children than ever are now living in poverty, then on June 8th help to put things right by voting Labour.
All things Corbyn
