OK here goes ... #LBC #T4TM

I often torture myself by listening to LBC to try and understand the mindset of others.

As many of you probably agree its shows are generally anti-Labour and virtually always anti Corbyn.

I HAVE A STORY TO TELL ABOUT EDITORIAL. 1/x
LAST NIGHT 13-MAY at 10.30 PM. I WAS PHONED BY AN LBC RESEARCHER.

She asked me 'would you like to ask a question on LBC tomorrow morning'. OK ! Great 😄 EXCEPT the conversation got a bit weird. 2/x
I put together a question over a pleasant longish chat and then she honed the question for me into something more 'punchy' and slightly removed from other areas I wanted to ask about.

3/x
I agreed to ask the question - with a mind to change it when they phoned me this morning - but the caller / researcher this morning just called me to rehearse the exact question that they wanted asking. 4/x
I don't know whether they are preparing question for their guest to have answers to (which is my suspicion)

or

They are try to hit the guest with hard hitting questions. (Which I don't think they were)

5/x
I decided to not go ahead with my question because I don’t want to be part of this sort of set up.

I know what LBC stand for and am always suspicious of their motives.

So when you’re listening to this DECEIT and the clever, annoying adverts making them Millions £££££

Millions of 💴 £

That they have reportedly put millions through (legal) tax avoidance schemes via inter company “loans” charged at big interest. 7/x

Just to represent that Corporation Watch piece above in detail - I extracted some of the text into this graphic.

How to make a “loss” when you’re actually making millions in profits. 8/x
Linking back to anti Corbyn bias on LBC

These tax avoidance schemes are the sort of schemes that Labour will block in government

In fact even in opposition Labour (with Corbyn as leader in 2016) tried to block #ParadisePapers avoidance schemes

LOOK AT THE TORY MP VOTES! 😡9/x
