If anyone is doing any defying, it will be the big business class. That is the driver of political decisions most of the time.

There's precious little of anything at all that could be regarded as "the Left" gets on the BBC these days. Unlike the right, which is over-represented because of the BBC's obsession with "balance" - and that's not even counting mainstream Conservativism, which is a long way right of centre these days.

Your problem is you've imbibed so much of their BS you can't even tell what's neutral any more.

I think you make a valid point but would add that the 2 are most certainly not mutually exclusive

Just watched Boris Johnson's excellent speech at conference. Just as well May has managed to keep him on-side, at least for the time-being.

Is it embarrasing for the Brexiters for the UK to have the slowest growth in the G7? Even slower than Italy. So slow growth, higher inflation, longer waiting lists, failed cheap airline,... So tell me what was good about voting for Brexit?

Brexit Britain plummets into economic growth slow lane as even Italy overtakes UK in latest forecast

Did he manage it without taking up the white man's burden or mentioning "bongo bongo land"?

I thought it was the EU that was supposed to be disintegrating, no?

Who is talking about the BBC? I never mentioned it in our exchange. Maybe we are misunderstanding each other. When I posted ‘BS’, I was referring to ‘on what’ the left should have a monopoly of, not to you personally. I was referring to not only the media but to the Left as a whole and to their lies and obscene rhetoric. I saw enough of that last week. Yes, there is BS on the Right but at least I can admit it and not stick with a prejudiced view such as yours. Personally I don’t give a damn about the BBC. I never watch it. Never.
