Who are the thought police?

We all know that the Daily Mail is out to get the BBC in any possible way it can, never missing an opportunity to find fault. The Ross-Brand affair, the Mock the Week 'haunted pussy' never ends. These were all disgusting lapses in standards, 'grossly offensive' according to today's (4 Feb) editorial.

Completely different for the daughter of their favourite Prime Minister to be sacked for calling a black tennis player a 'golliwog'. She's not a 'bigot'. Obviously, it's all the fault of the person at the BBC who told on her...

But at a time when the Mail and others seem to be scrutinising every single joke, looking for perceived offence, isn't their headline of 'BBC Thought Police' a tad hypocritical?
