Rees-Mogg Slams BBC For ‘Remain Bias’

  • 1

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.

He said: “The BBC are punting out Brussels-supporting propaganda.”

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”.

Meanwhile, on Wednesday Tory MP Liz Truss took to the BBC to reveal she would now vote for Brexit in another referendum.

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.

“I made a judgment thinking that it would be bad for the economy. Since we have left, it’s been more positive, so the facts have changed so I have changed my mind.

“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.”

    What is so unacceptable is that we, the public, tolerate this behaviour by the BBC (and actively connived at by the Government and Civil Service). Of course, even expressing this view will provoke shrieks of “fascist extremism”.

    The next head of BBC news should be a patriotic Englishman to replace someone who is neither.

    WHAT IS A REFERENDUM ? It is submitting a question to the electorate. So why did we have one on continued membership of the European Union ? Put in a simple way, it was to see how many British people salute the EU flag. The British people, 40 plus years ago, voted to join the Common Market of Europe, but that did not last very long, and slowly but surely the CM changed to EU. What started as a trade arrangement, became a takeover of our Nation, with Laws and Courts from the EU being supreme to our own. Our Parliament was told what it could, and could not do, by the EU. Our pound currency was wanted to change to their Euro. – Thankfully that was a move too far, and was rejected, at least for the time being.
    If the British people are physically threatened with a war, they will fight tooth and nail, and the Commonwealth and USA join in to gain the victory. But what if there are no guns, just men in suits writing Treaties, and a few decades are allowed to pass, quietly and gently. The British people go to sleep and their Nation becomes a part of one big federal Union. Fortunately, we are not all sleeping, and a real threat is presented to the Party of Government. The PM (Cameron), gets windy about such a challenge, and takes the decision of holding a referendum upon the main plank of this new Party’s manifesto, and the challenge will be over. What was over, was his premiership, as the people voted by over a million majority to leave the EU.
    After a referendum is held, it is a requirement of Government to implement the will of the people, yet some 15 months later we are still a member of the EU and there are people acting to reverse the people’s decision, which is an absurd situation to be in. So what is a Parliamentary Democracy ? It should be a gathering of MPs, elected by the people, to govern according to the wishes of the people. The largest Party, or like minded group form the Government, and the rest act as a Loyal Opposition. Now since we are still in the EU, and clearly the will of the majority has not been actioned, it is clear that this Parliament is not fit for purpose. All MPs please note. – Oliver Cromwell dismissed Parliament, for being useless and bending the rules, SO IT CAN HAPPEN !
