Five Live Censor Tim Montgomerie for BBC Criticism

The deeply unpleasant Radio 5 presenter Sam Walker got her knickers in a right twist earlier when Tim Montgomerie of the Times was on her show. Reading out left-wing hackette Samira Shackle’s Twitter handle, so listeners could find her online, gobby Walker point blank refused to do the same for Monty:

“Now if you’d like to follow Samira on Twitter she is @samirashackle. If you want to follow Tim then bad news because yesterday he retweeted someone slagging off the BBC so I’m not going to tell you his address. But now is not the time to refuse to give out Tim Montgomerie’s Twitter address although I am not going to give out Tim Montgomerie’s Twitter address for now is the time to open your ears, put up your feet settle back, as we Chart The Week.”

Here is the offending Tweet that Tim had dared to push:

The former editor of ConHome told listeners: “I can’t remember Sam retweeting someone who was rude about the BBC.” The delightful Walker hit back “Well you better look back through your timeline Tim,” giving Monty the final word “I better hadn’t I. I didn’t know we were being censored, weren’t allowed free speech but I will behave much better from now on.”

The paranoia is getting to them.
