Evan Davis agressively insisted in an interview with a Conservative that the popular Labour vote in the election was a vote against the Tory hard Brexit in favour of something ‘softer’ which voters anticipated under Labour. This, despite the two parties’ Brexit objectives being virtually the same. Evan referred to polling data to support this – well we all know about the polls. The Conservative interviewee contested this view, claimig that the Labour vote was becase of domestic issues, e.g. relating to social care. In fact the polls did show a marked shift in Labour’s favour following release of the Tory manifesto. Worst of all Evan lost his cool and told the interviewee ‘What planet are you living on?’ This was a wholly unbiased suggestion, revealing his disdain not only for Brexit but for Conservative Brexit plans.
