Fanatical Europhile Appointed to Ofcom Board

Outers will not be reassured by the news that Ofcom have appointed fanatical Europhile Bill Emmott to their board. Readers will remember Emmott as the ex-Economist editor who was blasted by IPSO for making a spurious claim against the Telegraph, when he wrongly accused them of publishing inaccuracies about the EU. IPSO threw out Emmott’s whinge, finding the piece was in fact perfectly accurate. 

In addition to joining the Ofcom board, Emmott will also chair their ‘Content Board’, which “sets and enforces quality and standards for television and radio”. Given Emmott’s record of making false claims against the media about Europe, is he really the best man for the job in an EU referendum year?

UPDATE: Emmott was also the Executive Producer of the BBC pro-EU propaganda film ‘The Great European Disaster Movie’. Expect this one to run…

UPDATE II: An Ofcom spokesperson has got in touch with Guido to say: “Any conflicts of interest involving non-executive Board members are managed appropriately and Bill Emmott would not be involved in discussions related to the EU referendum”.

Quote of the Day

Julie Burchill on the bigotry of remainers…

They have felt free to indulge in the forbidden taste-thrill of bigotry for once in their self-censoring lives. The parasexual kick derived from hating the old and the working-class has energised a supine and smug ruling-class who have outed themselves as the true enemy within.”
