Is it too much to ask for the BBC to get anything right? Take this quote for example:
[Chamali] Fernando is a barrister from Finchley, who says he plans to put forward issues, ask tough questions and campaign across London.
He wants to present Liberal Democracy “as the tonic for Londoners from all walks of life”.
What is wrong with this picture? Well, as a quick google or even, radical I know, glance at the Lib Dem website will tell you, Chamali is a woman.
But it gets worse because, while the Guardian has a reader’s editor, the BBC doesn’t even have a decent complaints system. I can’t just click on a link by the article to submit a correction; nor is there a dedicated email address. The best I can do is to make a “general” comment which, on past form, will – if it achieves anything – result in a news editor making a patronising remark about how I am in fact wrong.
