BBC watch: compare and contrasting manifesto headlines

By James Macintyre

The BBC news website continues what some (including Peter Hitchens) regard as its Pravda-esque coverage of David Cameron’s Conservatives today, with the main headline being, simply:

Cameron ‘to make Britain better’.

Click on the story, and the sub headline is:

Cameron: Tory manifesto will change Britain for better

The equivalent yesterday for Labour’s launch?

Labour manifesto: Brown unveils election programme

Who, wondering what an ordinary non-Westminster punter might make of an authoritative headline saying ‘Cameron ‘to make Britain better’, can still claim the BBC has a pro-Labour bias?
