THE NEW DIMBLEBY RULES
The first 40 minutes of Question Time last night was devoted to the student protests in London. This is a blatant disregard for the “Dimbleby Rules” set in Glasgow, Scotland when the Programme last aired there, on the 28th of October.
He repeatedly, condescendingly and wrongly told Nicola Sturgeon that she was only to raise matters that apply to the UK, and not specifically Scotland. In particular of course, Scottish Independence. The Elephant in the BBCs room which they ignore at their peril.
Student fees and education is a devolved matter and therefore last nights programme was applicable to England only.
The hypocrisy and blatant anti Scottish discrimination of the state broadcaster is patronising, discriminatory, and vile utterly totally vile.
David Dimbleby and the BBC owe Scotland and Nicola Sturgeon an apology.
I have watched every Question Time since October specifically to monitor the content in terms of the new “Dimbleby Rules.” Every one since has had at least the first half hour dedicated to English only subjects.
