BBC incorrectly describes York MP Hugh Bayley as conservative
8:57am Thursday 14th March 2013 in News
Mr Bayley has been a member of the Labour Party for many years and takes the Labour whip in the House of Commons.
But when the BBC rebroadcast his speech on its Democracy Live website, it described him as Conservative. The caption below the video broadcast read: “Conservative York Central MP Hugh Bayley led a debate on the licensing of the reburial of King Richard III, on 12 March 2013.”
However, the caption in the video of the York MP read correctly “Hugh Bayley, Labour.” It also showed him wearing a large white rose.
