BBC Journalist Suspended For Calling Tories “New Nazis”

The BBC journalist who Guido last week revealed had called the government “new Nazis” has been suspended. BBC Look North’s Danny Carpenter, a veteran reporter and lifelong leftie, posted the ill-advised rant on his personal Facebook page in breach of the Beeb’s impartiality guidelines. A spokesman says:

“We’re taking these allegations very seriously and the journalist concerned will not be reporting for the BBC pending the outcome of our investigation.”

Even the BBC realises that its perceived impartiality might be undermined by journalists ranting about the government being “new Nazis”…

Quote of the Day

Scruton reflects on Twitter’s vigilantes…

“We in Britain are entering a dangerous social condition in which the direct expression of opinions that conflict – or merely seem to conflict – with a narrow set of orthodoxies is instantly punished by a band of self-appointed vigilantes. We are being cowed into abject conformity around a dubious set of official doctrines and told to adopt a world view that we cannot examine for fear of being publicly humiliated by the censors. This world view might lead to a new and liberated social order; or it might lead to the social and spiritual destruction of our country. How shall we know, if we are too afraid to discuss it?”
