John Rentoul: More BBC anti-Labour propaganda

Lead headline on BBC News website this morning: "Rich-poor divide 'wider than 1970s'."

That was later changed to: "Rich-poor divide 'wider than 40 years ago'." Which is sort of true but less than half the story. The report (pdf) of Harriet Harman's National Equality Panel, the basis of the news story, says:

The large inequality growth between the late 1970s and early 1990s has not been reversed. 

Which is a bit different. GCSE history multiple choice question: Which party was in power between "the late 1970s and early 1990s"?
