Aha! The BBC are rattled & have had to rush out a new article to cover-up the outrageous bias of an earlier one. You may recall the piece that so outraged Jonathan Isaby of ConservativeHome, which found that all of the six people BBC reporter Sarah Bell spoke to in Richmond were intending to vote (enthusiastically) for the Liberal Democrats in the wake of Nick Clegg's performance on the TV.
Well, the BBC must have had some complaints they obviously couldn't ignore about this. So another BBC reporter Brian Wheeler was rushed back to Richmond to do a proper job and file a bullet-proof report.
He refers to Sarah's astonishingly biased article & tries to pretend that, though she was right a couple of days ago, things have changed dramatically since then & now people there have a variety of voting intentions (Pull the other one Brian):
A few days ago my colleague Sarah Bell travelled to the Lib Dem marginal seat of Richmond in South London, where she found widespread enthusiasm for the party, in the wake of the televised debate.
I returned there on Sunday to find out if the mood had changed in this crucial swing seat, which the Conservatives must take if they are going to form the next government, now that people have had a chance to reflect on the debate and read in greater detail about the party's policies.
As always, it is worth pointing out that this was a highly unscientific exercise.
Well, Sarah didn't point that out in her propaganda piece, which is why Mr Wheeler had to re-do her work! She should stick to her day job - writing up what Gordon Brown says about Conservative cuts and what David Cameron says about ties for the BBC's live election blog.
