Following Newsnight's flawed onslaught on the Swedish schools model favoured by the Conservatives (see http://beebbiascraig.blogspot.com/2010/02/liz-is-too-mackeen-to-attack-tories.html), the BBC News website has another go, using a report from The Centre for Economic Performance (who?):
The C.E.P. (which turns out to be part of the L.S.E) gets 14 paragraphs and another critic, leftie Swedish bureaucrat Per Thulberg, gets 3 more. The Conservative response (mostly squeezed in the middle) gets just 4 (generally very short) paragraphs and a photo! (I have a photo too - of another Swedish model. Sorry, but some puns just have to be made!!).
Hardly a balanced article.
More on the C.E.P. can be found here: http://cep.lse.ac.uk/_new/about/default.asp. Its co-founder (and key member) is Labour peer Lord Layard (of whom Wikipedia - which is infallible! - says 'He advocated many of the policies which have characterised the New Labour government, partly by founding the influential Centre for Economic Performance at the London School of Economics.' ) No wonder the BBC article names no names at the C.E.P.
