Remote battle

By Mark Mardell
Chief political correspondent

POSTED: Friday 6 May, 0025BST

A historic struggle is going on between the forces that believe in public services and those committed to market values. No, not the political parties' ideological differences, but whether the gigantic TV screens at Labour HQ are being tuned to BBC One or Sky News.

I'm delighted to report that at the moment the BBC is winning despite the techies switching over at a crucial moment, which they said was boring. Sky must have been at an even more boring moment, as it was soon switched back.

Well I switched over to ITV a couple of times - but while the Beeb had Bozza (Boris), Hizza (Hislop), Paxo and Shirl(ey Williams), ITV seemed to be interviewing Nicholas Parsons. Nuff said.

Don't forget to mention ITN, we live a three party system in this country!
