Watch Newsnight, Get Blue

Two Tory propaganda coups yesterday: their ‘Vote Blue, Go Green’ broadcast was their best in about a decade – probably their only positive one in that time, too (like a Lib Dem one with added cartoons). Of course the pitiful Tory green record and proposals made it a con, yet still less deceitful than the longer Tory propaganda slot calling itself ‘Newsnight’. We’re all used to the constant bias of Nick ‘Mate of Dave Cameron’ Robinson on BBC ‘News’, but Mr Luntz’s shockingly rigged Newsnight polling has been exposed by MillenniumComplete with a witness from his focus group.

Being ill and knackered, I was unconscious and missed it, but after the reports, I have a question. As so many people have spotted how partisan US Republican pollster (surprise, uncredited by the BBC) Mr Luntz produces his miraculous results - as could anyone who’s ever seen Jonathan Creek or, indeed, who has a smidgeon of common sense - are Newsnight really, really dumb to be hoodwinked by this con-artist, or actively complicit in promoting the Tories? If you’re willing to give them the benefit of the doubt, keep a look out for when Mr Luntz gives a third ‘astonishing’ finding about the popularity of Mr Balloon. As the famously naïve and trusting Mr Goldfinger pointed out, once is happenstance, twice is coincidence, but three times is enemy action.

Alex, now that you've seen the results of the election -- Labour's crumble, the Conservative surge, and the Lib-Dem inability to increase its support, don't you think you owe me an apology? Everything that happened at the Newsnight session happened on Election Day.
