You shouldn't have to read all the thoughts of newspaper man and former radio boss Kelvin MacKenzie in the Mail. Here's the important bit of him fulminating this morning about Ofcom plans to make Radio 2 carry longer (or more) news bulletins in peaktime.
"Ofcom.... is a New Labour cabal. Presumably that’s why it wants to meddle with Radio 2, Middle Britain’s favourite station.
The self-styled ‘elite’ don’t really like the people of Middle Britain, who resolutely refuse to do as they are told and insist on supporting a Tory Government and voting to leave the EU.
Perhaps Ofcom believes that by forcing Radio 2’s 15 million-strong weekly audience to consume more ‘news’ they will become better educated and embrace ‘progressive’ political views."
