There wasn't one negative proposal in this years budget, everything was a positive. Nobody except smokers will lose out (a good thing) everybody will gain in some way or another. Now I fully expect Labour to moan and whinge, they'd have done so regardless of what the chancellor offered, its all they ever do is moan and whinge, but its beyond me how every political analyst on both the BBC and ITV did they're absolute best to pick holes in the chancellors plans. Its almost if an analysts soul reason for being on TV is to cause controversy when no controversy exists. Its putting me off following TV news reports. Its about time these analysts were replaced for less biased more positive reporters. It must be depressing for you Brits constantly being fed negativity.

Donald Trump named it..

Fake News.

It’s labour’s intention to grasp power, whatever the government offers, so nothing new there... political analysts like Laura Kuenssberg doesn’t know her arse from her elbow and removes any doubt of her bias when she opens her mouth..

Peston is just as bad. He almost but admitted in an interview recently that it was controversy that kept him in a job, without scandal he'd have nothing to report on people would lose interest. Or in other words, if there isn't any controversy to report on he'd invent it to keep him in a job. The trouble is though, its becoming so blatant across all the networks. Even Andrew Marr whos show I once enjoyed is resorting to shock tactics to boost viewing figures. Its about time News programs upped their game and started reporting on the "real" news instead of inventing it for their own gains.

You heard of Owen Jones of the Guardian?...He'll find you controversy. He was on Newsnight last night and I have never heard such a dismal view of the world, his world. He even likes Polly Toynbee.
