It is pretty clear to me that the BBC is generally pro immigration and is loathed to criticise the last New Labour governments 'Blairite approach' to the issue.
So it is no surprise that they gave blanket coverage to a report last month, by Christian Dustmann and Tommaso Frattini from the UCL, which said immigration had made a substantial contribution to the public finances.
However yesterday Mervyn Stone a senior statistician at the UCL said the report contained some basic schoolboy errors.
The BBC has a duty to be impartial and not only balanced but check out information BEFORE they broadcast.
I'm sure the BBC won't publish a retraction but then they don't care as they have used the airways to promote their view of the world and to hell with the truth.
The trouble is the BBC's version of the truth is NOT representative of the public at large.
