BBC Staff Told to Hide Badges in Public

Security is being ramped up at the BBC after Newsnight and News at Ten broadcast the Charlie Hebdo cover depicting Mohammed. MediaGuido understands staff have been sent an email warning them to hide their BBC badges when out in public for fear they could be targeted in terrorist reprisals. Last week the BBC revised its guidelines banning images of Mohammed. “Security has been stepped up noticeably,” a Beeb source reveals. “We wouldn’t comment on security matters,” says a spokesman, “but the email you refer to makes clear that there’s no indication of any threat against the BBC”. Troubling times.

Quote of the Day

Trevor Kavanagh’s analysis of the Brexit process…

“Thanks to Mrs May and her useless Chancellor Phil Hammond, this will not come without pain. But we escape with imagination and true British grit or we will be boiled alive.

It means on this centenary Remembrance of our struggle against tyranny, we risk ceding non-military victory in Europe to the undemocratic forces of an unaccountable totalitarian regime.”
