He is either a mysogynist or an absolute arsehole or theres another more sinister reason for his attitude. Whichever reason is behind it......IT STINKS.

If the BBC one is biased in favour of the Gov. i wont be surprised. Look at the way Newsnight stitched up that single mum. Ive completely lost any respect for that programme as a result.
In the same week as the NatWest/RBS disaster exploded there was NOT one question asked about it on Question Time NOT ONE. But they still found 15 mins to moan about people on benefits. No questions pertaining to the Nat West disaster on the following weeks show either.
Earlier this year John Humphreys did a very biased show about benefit claimants on BBC2.
Then a few months later he did a Panorama programme in Greece about how awful it was that people over there were having to rely on charities and food banks.
Now i know Greece have a bigger crisis than us but people are having to use food banks over here john you fuckwit!
And idiots like him simply REFUSE to see that demonizing low income people the way he does will make it even worse over here.
I have NO FAITH in the BBC at all when they deal with issues like this. They tow the Government line. Too frightened of losing the TV licence.

Yeah darkers, and 'they' call BBC a bunch of commies - who are keeping pretty quiet about privatisation of the NHS. It'll be their turn next, and they won't like it.

Folk like JH still working there and yet 'wrinkly' women in their 50s getting sacked from Countryfile - beeb has gone to the dogs.
