BBC’s Anti-School Return ‘Concerned Mums’ Are Far-Left Fanatics

BBC News viewers watched a debate between former Tory MP Justine Greening and two concerned mums this morning who are so worried they want the government to abandon its plans to get kids back to school next month. Guido’s eyebrows were yet again raised as the two ordinary mums were given eight minutes to tear lumps out of the Government. After a couple of minutes research readers will be shocked to learn that BBC once again failed to highlight their guest’s party political biases…

Corinne Pearson, who described the government as “reckless” and “callous”, might be hell-bent on not catching Coronavirus at school, is however happy to organise and attend an Extinction Rebellion rally in York where there “will be games and possibility to get block prints on your clothes!!” and will be “a great opportunity to see everyone again!”. Corinne is also, unsurprisingly, a left-wing Labour Party activist

Jennifer Dunstan, who boldly described the assurances on the safety of schools from the country’s Chief Medical Officer Chris Witty as “not good enough I’m afraid” is a long-term Socialist Worker writer as well as a supporter of the disgraced former MP Chris Williamson, who was expelled from the Labour Party. No wonder she is cranky enough to not take Chris Witty’s advice seriously…

If the BBC is intent on having a debate over whether we should trust the top medical and scientific brains this country has to offer, they could at least flag to viewers the party political motives that drive their guests – as they did with Justine Greening. Guido can’t imagine the BBC’s press office welcoming this today…

BBC’s Corbynista Correspondent

Rianna Croxford is the BBC’s Community Affairs Correspondent and has in recent weeks been at the forefront of the Corporation’s Covid-19 coverage, including representing the organisation at a Downing Street press briefing. Guido can today reveal that Croxford was a diehard campaigner for Jeremy Corbyn and has called for the Prime Minister to lose his job.

Soon after the 2017 election, she called for Boris Johnson, then Foreign Secretary, to be sacked. Croxford tweeted: ‘Please, Theresa, sack Boris Johnson. Britain needs leaders not clowns’ while she amplified claims Jeremy Corbyn is a ‘sensation’. During the Election campaign she labelled the current Prime Minister ‘an embarrassment’. All the tweets are still live…

The BBC hired someone who regards the entire press as a ‘pro-Tory echo chamber’. Little wonder that Croxford has been keen to attack the government at every opportunity, recently reporting claims in a report into the impact of Covid on ethnic minorities was delayed – claims that Public Health England have said are categorically untrue. Rianna clearly believes her role is to re-balance the broadcast media’s “Tory echo-chamber”…

BBC Scotland’s ‘Worried Parent’ Was Senior Tory Adviser

Last night the BBC’s Reporting Scotland programme spoke to “worried parent” Alison Payne voicing her concerns over schools reopening north of the border. What viewers were not told about this articulate, anti-government mother, however, is that she spent four years as Head of Research for the Scottish Conservatives, before becoming Political Adviser to the then Scottish Tory leader Annabel Goldie. Guido’s campaign for media transparency over interviewees’ party political context applies to all parties…

“Cummings Goes or I Go” Doctor’s Quitting Quizzing

Last week, Guido followed the mini-saga of Dominic Pimenta, a doctor who promised to resign over the Cummings Durham row if Cummings himself didn’t. Last Monday, Pimenta still hadn’t gone; after Guido pointed this out, by Thursday he claimed he’d handed in his resignation. It now appears Dr Dom may not have been entirely honest about ending his career however. Surgeon Umar Wali has called Pimenta “quite disingenuous”…

It’s now being openly speculated by fellow doctors that Pimenta merely requested an ‘OOPE‘ (Out of Programme Experience) break from his training, used by doctors for PhDs, special training or personal crises, with Pimenta telling the Guardian he will use the “career break” to spend work with a charity. Fellow cardiologist Iain Parsons has also cast doubt on Dr Pimenta’s resignation claim…

Dr Dom has only quit if he’s relinquished his ‘National Training Number’, something he won’t have if leaving for an OOPE. A fellow NHS doctor explains, “calling an OOPE a “quit” is like calling Nytol a recreational drug”Guido’s sure Dr Pimenta will be keen to clarify this as soon as possible…

“Cummings Goes or I Go” Doctor, Goes

On Monday, Guido spotted that the media-savvy hardline Corbynista doctor, Dominic Pimenta, who threatened to resign if Dominic Cummings didn’t, had failed to keep to his word. Well he now says he has:

Guido appreciates Pimenta sticking to his word, though doubts the NHS will appreciate his career-ending virtue signalling…

“Cummings Goes or I Go” Doctor Not Gone

Dominic Pimenta is a regular commentator-doctor on the telly, from Sky, to Good Morning Britain, to Channel 4, and of course the BBC. Last week he cruised across the airwaves with the audacious claim that if Dominic Cummings didn’t resign, he would. Guido was not surprised that Pimenta, a Labour Party member and canvasser who regularly shares NHS conspiracy theories, was putting his media career ahead of his patients…

A week on from making his threat Pimenta is yet to follow through on it. He does have previous for threatening walk outs, he previously threatened to quit the Labour Party during the 2016 moderates’ ‘coup’, telling the Guardian “Labour has rediscovered its soul under Jeremy Corbyn. If he goes, so do I”. Dr. Pimenta clearly has difficulty keeping his promises, just like most politicians…
