Last night Not a Sheep posted a prediction about the BBC concerning the Mail on Sunday's coverage of former Labour Party general secretary Peter Watt's eye-watering revelations about the dysfunctionality and sheer incompetence at the heart of Gordon Brown's government: "Do read the whole Mail piece and wonder at the way the BBC will ignore or find a way to dismiss this story and concentrate on how Gordon Brown is single-handedly saving the country from shortages of gas and road grit."
Not a Sheep's prediction wasn't long in coming true. The story is buried away at the bottom of an article entitled 'Gordon Brown says leadership challenge was 'silliness''. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/8450375.stm
The article gives only the briefest possible flavour of what Mr Watt has to say, prefering instead to concentrate on undermining him (and, thus, protecting Gordon):
BBC Political correspondent Carole Walker said it was important to remember Mr Watt was forced to resign as general secretary and was "clearly very angry".
