Rees-Mogg Slams BBC For ‘Remain Bias’
Leading Conservative Brexiteer MP Jacob Rees-Mogg (pictured above) has today slammed the BBC for its recent Brexit coverage, accusing the corporation of holding a ‘deep seated bias’ towards Remain. The outburst comes after recent stats reveal that the BBC’s two flagship Sunday political shows The Andrew Marr Show and The Sunday Politics both had three times as many Remain supporters than Brexit ones on the shows.
According to figures obtained by The Sun, the Andrew Marr show has featured 129 Remainers since the referendum – and only 33 leavers.
And the Sunday Politics show has reportedly had 78 remain backing guests compared to only 37 Brexiteers.
Monmouth MP David TC Davies has since hit out at the broadcaster’s supposed anti-Brexit bent.
Meanwhile, Jacob Rees-Mogg accused the broadcaster of having a “deep-seated bias”.
TV regulator Ofcom said: “All UK broadcasters must abide by our strict rules requiring impartiality.”
BBC Head of News James Harding stepped down from his post earlier this week, telling allies he wants to “reacquaint himself with his own opinions”.
The Justice Secretary said she has “changed her mind” over what way she would vote in another referendum.
The comments come after the Prime Minister, who voted to Remain in the European Union, would not say if she would vote for Brexit in a second vote.
Speaking on BBC’s Daily Politics, Ms Truss admitted that she would now vote to leave the bloc after project fear failed to scare the public into voting Remain.
She said: “All of us had to make a judgment on what we thought the future would look like.
“Many forecasts were wrong. If you go back in history, of course, no forecasts are accurate. No one has a crystal ball where they can predict the future.
“What I am saying is I believe there would be major economic problems. I have also seen the opportunities.
“I think the other thing is, that it was a big moment on June 23 when British people voted to leave and it was an expression about what kin doc country we wanted to be and I think it has changed the debate in this country as well.”
