Is BBC biased? Dinner featuring ex-Cabinet Minister John Whittingdale. Grab one of the last tickets


Hot on the heels of our first TCW debate of the year, The Conservative Woman is pleased to announce the line-up for our inaugural TCW Dinner next Wednesday 22nd March at Boisdale restaurant in London’s Victoria.

The theme of our first dinner will be: ‘Need we banish the BBC?’

Guest speakers: Former Culture Secretary Rt Hon John Whittingdale OBE MP and the Director of News-watch, and TCW writer, David Keighley.

John Whittingdale, as Culture Secretary under David Cameron from 2015 to 2016, oversaw the most recent renewal of the BBC Charter. Critics claimed he “ducked the opportunity for substantial reform”. Mr Whittingdale said he wanted to ensure the Corporation “continues to deliver the best possible service for licence fee payers” whilst focusing on “high quality, distinctive content”.

David Keighley, as a former BBC PR executive, is one of the Corporation’s most outspoken critics. He has slammed the “all-out war against what the Corporation sees as ‘populism’” and continually exposed how the BBC operated inside a “deeply biased, liberal bubble”.

They will consider whether the BBC is capable of living up to its renewed Charter requirements for impartiality and balance
