BBC Impartiality Adviser’s Ultra Partisan Anti-Boris, Anti-Brexit Tweets

Former Director of BBC News and now a lecturer at Professor of Journalism at Cardiff University, Richard Sambrook, has been drafted in by the Beeb to advise on impartiality, specifically on platforms like Twitter. So the BBC have turned to the famously not left wing world of academia…

Guido’s not sure Sambrook is the most impartial of impartiality advisers, having

  • Declared “I’m strongly remain” two years after the referendum
  • Tweeted that “Donald Trump and Boris Johnson” are “post-truth politicians”
  • Shared a Carole Cadwalladr story, adding the words more Boris lies – now a man of zero integrity”
  • Claimed that Britain is being led to an epic act of national self-harm over Brexit”
  • Criticised a letter from Oliver Dowden to Lord Hall over BBC Bias, arguing “Government tries to extend lockdown to independent journalism and critical views”
  • Claimed Brexit is not the “will of the British people” because turnout was just 72%
  • Called the Government “Shortsighted” and “stupid” for voting down a Lib Dem wrecking amendment on the Erasmus Programme
  • Called it a “disgrace” that eurosceptic MEPs received EU funding
  • Tweeted out an Independent article entitled “Brexit is going to be far worse than anyone could have guessed”
  • Highly critical of Boris Johnson during the EU referendum
  • Tweeted about pro-Brexit “Twitter bots” influencing the EU referendum
  • Tweeted Brexit is utterly, utterly stupid”, and Brexit is like a Premier League side wanting to be relegated”

The truth is there is far too much anti-Boris anti-Brexit bias to include in one article. Guido found Sambrook’s Twitter account to be more that of a partisan political commentator than an aspiring impartiality tsar. What a bonkers hire for advice on social media conduct…

Politicians are wrong about what the public want

So the, out of touch political elite are trying to say that the public would be happy to cough up an extra £2000 a year, per household to prop up the NHS? 
Advertisers website Wrong! While many British families struggle to make ends meet, the political elite thinks that people will be glad to fund a failing business that is being run into the ground because of their failed policies on how the NHS is managed?

No. This just shows that we have monkeys running our country! Many people on Facebook have shared the above post on various pages; a large number of those people don't even do politics. If our political elite were more than just yes men weighed down by the chains of political correctness, they would see that the people of Britain have had enough. 
Ever increasing taxation to try and fix their mistakes? 
Continuiosly using the NHS as a stick to beat the opposition or a classic party political paper dragon! (Paper Dragon): a politician or political party whocampaign to fox the proble…
