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.

Support Kipper Central

Kipper Central is here to spread the real news with the British and global public, without political correctness and without lies.
However, we are an extremely small team each putting in several hours a day, despite none of us having full-time jobs.
We, therefore, rely on the kind support of our readers to keep reporting on the stories that nobody else will and to keep promoting what is truly happening in Britain and across the world.

Reece Coombes

As a 16-year-old member of UKIP with a cardboard Nigel Farage cut-out in his bedroom, Reece is hardly your bog-standard student, but he cherishes his independent thinking as his greatest strength. Reece is the founder and owner of Kipper Central, a UKIP community blog with thousands of daily hits and is also the Deputy Chairman of Young Independence, UKIP's youth wing, where he works hard to promote Brexit and radical thinking to young people across Britain.

    Well that’s the bleedin’ obvious. Mr Woolfe has exceeded himself. UKIPers have been banging on about this for ages. On a more serious note getting change at the unaccountable BBC will require different tactics than just complaining – they have admitted that complaints of bias are ignored. A new approach is needed.

    The finest hour for the BBC was during WW2, with News. Many European countries came to rely on the BBC for a sight of truth and the enemy did their best to black out the broadcasts.
    From those days to this, the BBC has changed its standing in the world, nowhere more so than right here in UK/GB. Their fall in standards have availed them with no obvious benefit. All that can be said on their behalf, is that Government holds the whip-hand over their License Fee income, and that is not the best arrangement to have. Add to that a sloppy culture at the top, and it can be seen to be almost impossible for this public service corporation to change its ways.
    As with everything in life, it is difficult and time consuming to be the best. Dead easy to drop standards !

    I never, ever, ever listen to the BBC news because it is so biased against Brexit and the Government. Question Time I love but the panel and audience is suspect to leaning left. However, the audience lately appears to be more balanced. Drama, documentaries and presenters are weighed down with ethnics and women which is quite ridiculous, what has happened to the white male? Sack em all and begin again.

    Steven Woolfe would make an excellent leader and he knows who would make the best chairman.
