VICTORY: BBC Pulls Anti-UKIP Editor From Election Coverage

Following MediaGuido’s story yesterday revealing the anti-UKIP rant of BBC News Channel deputy editor Jasmine Lawrence, the Beeb has gagged her and relieved her of her duties for this week’s election coverage. A BBC spokesman tells Guido:

“Jasmine Lawrence was tweeting from a personal account. She has been reminded of her responsibility to uphold BBC guidelines. She has deactivated her twitter account and will now be playing no part in the BBC’s election coverage in coming days.”

We’re always watching…

    What UKIP want is for the British people to have the same rights as those that they have in 165 other countries of the world: countries like Cuba and Venezuela. To be able to choose a leader to run their country (not have it run by unelected, unaccountable people in Brussels) and decide who can come and live in their country.

    Why is that so wrong?

    The rank hypocrisy of some of you is hilarious. What Lawrence did was wrong, but are you telling me if she’d posted a tweet taking the piss out of Labour, you’d be calling for her to be sacked? You’re only against bias when it suits you. Be honest. How many of you would be calling for the “bitch” to be sacked if she’d tweeted a joke about Miliband or Clegg? Zero.

    Only personal accounts are personal when it suits them. All week they have been leading the charge to get Scudamore to resign from his job at the Premier League, not accepting for one minute that e-mails from his personal e-mail account were personal.

    This creature was broadcasting her views. As an Editor for a ‘so-called’ impartial broadcaster, can she EVER be trusted with her approach to other political stories.

    She should be sacked.

    That’s how the bedwetters justify living surrounded buy other white people instead of dipped in multicultural enrichment. It’s not because they’re racist – fuck no – it’s because of the schools you see.

    Even Diane Abbot pulled that one when she sent her kid to private school. It’s not because she didn’t want her kid growing up surrounded and influenced by black gang culture and fatherless kids. Fuck no. It was because the results were so poor.

    For I have complained, but anyone who thinks she will lose her job over this is sadly mistaken. She is a right-on bien-pensant BBC leftie, and you and me are just little people. Her judges will be right-on bien-pensant BBC lefties and it is unthinkable to them -absolutely unthinkable – that she should lose her job over complaints from oiks like you and me. Furthermore, they share her views on UKIP, as witnessed by the BBC’s coverage over the last few weeks. So it will be a slap on the wrist and business as usual.

    I sent this just a few moments ago…
    Full Complaint: The suspension of a senior news executive for demonstrable bias just before a national election was in my view the correct first action to take. Doubtless she will be dismissed after due process as her position is untenable. While other national news services reported the BBC’s decision, it was notably absent from the BBC’s own output. It is undeniable that you have a public service duty for impartiality, even when it applies to a fault within the executive structure and or HR issues within the Corporation. Thus to suppress this story is tantamount to censorship. By contrast to your ‘dirty linen basket should be kept closed’ approach, I draw the corporation’s attention to recent coverage in the New York Times of the controversial summary firing by that very newspaper of Jill Abramson. It reported both sides of the issue for all to see and judge. I cannot see how the BBC remit for impartiality can be used as a bulwark to licence fee renegotiation as long as slips and errors such as this continue to occur. You are digging for youselves a subscription service grave unless you issue firm guidelines on this issue of bias and make sure miscreants are publicly reported upon.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
