WTF BBC? Have you gone Teabagger?

The BBC appears to be joining The Baggergraph in their attempt to win the a US audience share.

Comparing the speech of Vince Cable to the Lib Dem Conference to Marxism? That’s almost as bad as this lot :

They went there though.

On being a Marxist

Cable:

“[My comments have been] interpreted as an outburst of Marxism. [I have had] to go round explaining that that’s not what I meant.”

Marx:

“I am not a Marxist.”

On capitalism

Cable:

“Capitalism takes no prisoners and kills competition where it can.”

Marx:

“Capitalism is dead labour, which, vampire-like, lives only by sucking living labour, and lives the more, the more labour it sucks.”

On happiness and working for the common good

Cable:

“I am told that I look miserable. I’m sorry, conference, this is my happy face.

“‘Aren’t you having fun?’ people ask. It isn’t much fun but it’s necessary: necessary for our country that our parties work together at a time of financial crisis.”

Marx:

“If we have chosen the position in life in which we can most of all work for mankind, no burdens can bow us down, because they are sacrifices for the benefit of all; then we shall experience no petty, limited, selfish joy, but our happiness will belong to millions, our deeds will live on quietly but perpetually at work, and over our ashes will be shed the hot tears of noble people.”

Sadly, there’s more. Come on BBC you can do better than this.
