    Like most folk I go to the BBC website to see if WWIII has been declared because I reckon that the corporation can be trusted to do that. The automatic suggestion that it was caused by the Tories trying to destroy the food banks is something that most of us ignore.

    But we are often told that it wasn’t “Labour” that won in 1997, but a Thatcher influenced New Labour...

    Don't follow your logic in ascribing such a view to me — especially as the general opinion on this forum seems to be the BBC is red in truth and clause four...
