Woolfe Slams BBC: To Get On Question Time, You Need To Be A Remoaner
Steven Woolfe MEP last night launched a Twitter attack on the BBC and it’s selection of Question Time panelists, claiming that you have to be a Remainer to get on.
In a Tweet, he said “You need to be a Remainer, lefty Remainer, righty Remainer, snooty Remainer erm or a Remainer!”

The former UKIP Leadership hopeful is not the only politician to attack the BBC recently; he follows UKIP’s culture spokesman – who said we must “break up” the BBC, Jacob Rees-Mogg – who called out the “Remain Bias”, Nigel Farage – who threatened to stop paying the BBC license fee over the organisation’s biased reporting and Kate Hoey – who accused the BBC of “undermining our country”.
Mr Woolfe has an interesting relationship with the BBC, as he has used their news program as a platform for announcing his UKIP leadership candidacy but also has launched many attacks on their coverage of various news events. I think it is fair to say, however, that the North West MEP is not a fan of the broadcaster.
It would also appear that Mr Woolfe has significant public support of his anti-BBC stance. In September, 240,000 thousand people signed a petition to axe the license fee, and there are growing calls from politicians and movements from all sides for the BBC to be reformed, reduced or scrapped.
