Meaningless since slightly left of centre now means David Davis.
Not sure that most of these independent groups have quite as jaundiced view as you - and probably have a more realistic one than you do.
Are your, or your friends'/relatives', garages, lofts or sheds full of unused DIY gear, sewing/knitting machines or fabric and haberdashery stuff?

The whole point is is that in BBC reporting they are working from a narrative that the opinion of one or two labour MP's trumps the opinion of the membership. That is establishmentism writ large. That is how the BBC conducts itself superimposed by the bbc as a model for how the country should work.
Having listened to the BBC for many years now, I have never experienced this disconnect you like to make out occurs.  Over the years, Auntie has been happy to criticise any- and everyone.  The bulk of what I have heard about this latest situation - via the BBC - has been from pro-Corbyn MPs and party members.  That suggests that the occasional different report is an attempt to give balance.

That of course should be scrapped. Osborne U Turned really because people who voted for him who he thought he could do anything to made noises that that wasn't the case.
OS, I didn't vote for him, personally or party-cularly, yet I wrote to him and my Tory MP explaining why I believe that the progamme that he had in mind was erroneous.

The BBC is paid for by the licence fee and yet it's future is being decided between people who are paid from that and the government. If the government want the level of management they are exercising they should put it to referendum or bring the payment of it into taxation.
Interestingly, there has been a massive consultation exercise going on with Joe Public for the last few months.  The advantage of this is that it isn't a simplistic 'Yes/No' referendum, but asking for ideas from everyone.

That way there may be more care of it by the public and less political interference.
I think there are attempts at political interference simply because all political parties would like the Beeb to appear more sympathetic to their politics.  This suggests that she is actually pretty balanced.
