Guido & White

I've just watched the studio discussion between Guido and Michael White, several days after everyone else. Something Michael White said stood out to me as being a little odd. He was talking about Prescott's little problems last year and said:

If he's such a villain, how come we've just voted against ... against there being a casino in Manchester.

Firstly, "we've just voted...". Who's we? Labour? Is Michael White openly aligning himself with Labour? That would kind of prove Guido's point wouldn't it - that the press are too close to the politicians? Or does he mean the House of Lords? He's not actually been ennobled yet despite all his brown-nosing editorials, but perhaps he knows something we don't.

Either way he doesn't obviously give the impression of being a fearless independent journalist.
