She could have been talking about Dateline London itself

"It's totally corrupt" wailed Yasmin Alibhai-Brown on Dateline London this morning.

She could have been talking about Dateline London itself, since the discussion on migration was completely one-sided and promulgated an extreme "everyone must be given access, Western people are all guilty" view.

No mention that the United Kingdom has already taken a record amount of economic migrants over the last 12 months.

No attempt to present any other side to the issue.

You NEVER see a journalist sympathetic to UKIP featured on the programme and yet UKIP won the United Kingdom EU elections and in terms of EU representation Nigel Farage is the British Prime Minister.

I think my patience with the BBC is running out.

The bad things (especially political bias, but also Andrew Marr's luvvie sofa and, less seriously, the endless exposure of the smug and odious Stephen Fry) outweigh the good things.

Certainly I want to see Dateline London taken off the air.

And I want to see the government move forward with serious reforms of the BBC - after Dateline London this morning I would be happy to see the BBC reformed out of existence.
