What Jeremy Corbyn actually said about "student fees" is now well known and established.
We now know that Conservative Central Office edited the NME interview with Corbyn and created an ambiguity where there was no ambiguity in order to construct a meaning that did not exist and was not meant.
The story is not that Conservative Central Office behaved in this way, but that BBC NEWS failed to tell the whole truth once it was known and well established. The BBC have since accommodated opponents of Jeremy Corbyn who might wish to undermine him.
Sunday Morning Live, 6 August 2017, is available on the BBC i-player.
The Programme allowed Alan Sugar and Edwina Curry to lie in a light hearted way about what Jeremy Corbyn said about student fees.
Edwina Curry was asked if she admitted to any "Major" lies. She side-stepped the irony of the question and we moved on to Peter Hitchens who almost admitted to lying reluctantly but saw the question as an opportunity to insult the ignorance of the beguiled uneducated electorate unable to discern meaning out of ambiguity and therefore undeserving of a vote.
Alan Sugar was keen to suggest that Johnson and Gove should be locked up in gaol for the fat lie on the side of the Brexit Bus. So far so good but then he just had to repeat the lie about what Jeremy Corbyn had said as if that accusation had any merit.
Edwina Curry suggested that Jeremy was clever to avoid the lie by being ambiguous.
Nobody doubts that Jeremy said those ambiguous words as reported but the words reported were edited by Conservative Central Office. This is not clever. This is lying.
The ambiguity was created in Conservative Central Office.
The Clarity is found in what was left out as follows...
“First of all, we want to get rid of student fees altogether,” Corbyn told NME. “We’ll do it as soon as we get in, and we’ll then introduce legislation to ensure that any student going from the 2017-18 academic year will not pay fees. They will pay them, but we’ll rebate them when we’ve got the legislation through – that’s fundamentally the principle behind it. Yes, there is a block of those that currently have a massive debt, and I’m looking at ways that we could reduce that, ameliorate that, lengthen the period of paying it off, or some other means of reducing that debt burden.”
That much was said by Jeremy but it is only the fake spin of the phrase "I will deal with it", that persists, #BBCBias.
Peter Hitchins knows everything because he said so on this very programme.
Peter is so well read and aware of these nuances. He knows for example that Sugar and Curry sit well with the daytime summertime presenters, and he is so much more deserving a of better place.
This is the truth.... read my lips. Jeremy Corbyn does not lie. Conservative Central Office told a lie and the BBC News should stop repeating the lie as if it were light entertainment. Cut it out.
Nobody should go to jail for telling a lie unless they fail to correct it when found out.
THE BBC is found out.
Peter Hitchin is found out.
To accomodate a liar is to tell a lie.
