Some animals are more equals than others

David Campbell Bannerman complained to the BBC about Nigel Farage's planned appearance on Question Time and had him pulled from the programme.

Tim Congdon chipped in and said it wasn't fair for Farage to appear on TV when the other leadership candidates didn't.

So where was Tim Congdon last Sunday?  On the BBC Politics Show without any of the other candidates.  His justification for appearing on the Politics Show when he said it was unfair for Farage to appear on Question Time?  Because he announced that he was going to be on the show and none of the other candidates complained so they obviously didn't mind.

Why DCB decided not to complain about Tim Congdon appearing on the BBC is a mystery, especially considering that he made the announcement at the same leadership hustings that Farage did about Question Time.

One rule for Farage, one rule for everyone else it seems.
