I have just seen an article on the BBC News website about a Polish photographer who is going around London taking pictures of people and asking their opinions on Brexit. In the BBC article, 5 of the 8 featured people are anti-Brexit, 2 are on the fence/don’t care, and one is arguably pro-Brexit (it is not made explicitly clear in the article). Such a one-sided piece has no place on the website of an impartial national broadcaster. Link to article: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/in-pictures-39432240
Although Lloyds of London maintained that by opening up an office in Brussels no jobs would be lost in London the BBC did not seem to believe them. They constantly hinted that jobs would go and other companies would follow. So sick of the BBC and their unbelievable negativity regarding Brexit.
Two program articles about the effects of Brexit on British farming. A negative view taken particularly to foreign labour implying that Britons would be unable to fill the gap especially in fruit picking as it is allegedly ” Highly skilled”. A very slanted view all round
Constant anti brexit bias on the BBC online. I have complained directly to the BBC previously. No response and no change. They constantly give airtime to anti brexit doomsday pessimists and bury all positive economic news. Take today for instance – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-39439993 – this is, frankly, nonsense. But of course he gets airtime. Everything is about how bad things might be, how bad things could be, one wonders if the BBC would like to see things actually go bad so they could be proved right in all of their pessimistic forecasts. Yet, none of it has actually come to pass in the way that the BBC and the Remain campaign predicted it would – i.e. total economic collapse. Quite the opposite. The BBC’s negative and biased reporting is a disgrace. The corporation is supposed to be impartial. 52% of this company voted leave – a vote for self-determination as TM pointed out in the letter triggering article 50. Not a vote to leave Europe – we are not leaving Europe! And as for Laura Kneussberg, or whatever her name is, her clear anti brexit bias in all of her reporting is so irritating that I now have to change the channel when she comes on. Another pessimistic online whinge today – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-39438982 I voted leave because I truly believe it is the best way to go for all of the citizens in this country – I am an EU national living in the UK. It’s disgraceful to paint us as a racist minority. We are the majority and the majority of us are not racist and do not have an issue with immigration so long as it is controlled in a way that the country can support. The majority of us voted against an increasingly autocratic European Union which told us directly that it had no intention of changing. Personally, I found the EU’s ability to make dirty deals we had no say in completely unsupportable (take the disgusting Greece/Turkey migrant “swap” deal, for example, “let’s swap one desperate human being for another and shove the less worthy one off to Turkey so we don’t have to deal with the problem” – disgusting). BBC, stop taking taxpayers money and reporting only one side of the story.
A ‘mock’ delegation was drawn up 4 leave 4 Remain voters to simulate the forecoming talks with the EU. The 1 remainer was stated to be a ‘EU’ national. How could she have voted in the referendum ? Also the remainers stated they fears of Brexit , like another European war ! Nothing at all was said to counter this.
Constant pessimism. Of the various people interviewed while I was within earshot of the radio only one showed optimism and he came across as a comic character – a country “yokel” image. This is a particular example but the whole tone of the commentary both today and yesterday has been heavily slanted towards fear of the outcome and away from the opportunities which leaving sad old Europe presents.
I watched and saw once again the majority of time given to those who are anti brexit, and the tone of interview clearly weighted to remain viewers. The final montage using ET and EU nationals saying “goodbye etc” just said it all. Transparently bias, it would have had meaning if the possible success of brexit had been included with such gusto.The corporation should stop trying to say it is in anyway impartial, its views and programme content is so strongly weighted to staying in the EU it is actually embarrassing. It saddens me to see this, as I can see the value in both sides but unfortunately their coverage does not reflect the views of both sides equally. Such a shame for such a great institution.
I was absolutely shocked at the programme. Apart from Rees-Mogg, every bit of retoric was against the county’s decision to leave the EU. Unless somebody can get a grip on this they will do far more damage to our county’s future than the possible wrong decision of leaving the EU. They are brainwashing the younger generation and trying their upmost to destroy the hope of a positive future outside the EU. I voted to remain, but have since changed my mind because I can see through the lies and propaganda of the BBC. Are they that sore that their institution will not get handouts from the EU anymore ?
The BBC continues to report on brexit with total bias by using scare mongering tactics. The British tax payer funds this rubbish and deserves a much better and more balanced service. All this doom and gloom reporting is driving people to distraction.
About six months Post-Brexit (I’m sorry I don’t know the exact date – I have guessed based on a Guardian article) Mishal Husain, interviewed a Bank of England representative (Haldane?) on the ‘surprisingly good’ economic performance of the UK economy post-brexit in contradiction of the bank’s gloomy pre-brexit forecasts. The interview was cursory. The Bank of England representative admitted its forecasts had been wrong – to which Mishal Husain responded by excusing the bank’s inaccuracy; ‘the bank couldn’t have predicted the irrational behaviour of consumers.’ (I assume quoting Haldane without referencing him as the source) – I think the interviewee responded by saying it was still the bank’s job to forecast accurately. It is irrelevent what Ms Husain thinks of consumer behaviour post-brexit and it is not her job to be an apologist for Bank of England inaccuracy and bias, which undoubtedly impacted decision making pre-brexit vote. She made no attempt to pursue the bank for politically motivated bias in its forecasts. She immediately excused the bank’s inaccuracy, clearly indicating her view that the gloomy forecasts were correct but for the ‘irrational i.e. stupid’ behaviour of consumers. Her attitude on this point showed blatant bias as has most of what she’s said in reports before and since. Like many of Radio 4’s chief presenters.
Today was the day that article 50 was triggered. I cannot believe how biased the reporting has been today on 100 days on the BBC. It is so totally against Brexit. They interviewed an American whom once was part of the Obama American administration. All gloom and doom. Disgusting reporting. The BBC is a public broadcaster, funded by the British taxpayer and should present a balanced view point. It is totally anti brexit and anti conservative.
Laura kuenssbergs continued disgust at anything Brexit. Someone needs to tell her she is paid to report the facts & not turn the BBC news into her own Twtter page. If she can’t contain her obvious rage at the UK public voting to leave the EU then she should be replaced by someone who can. I dont pay my licence fee to listen to her personal view.
BBC introduced a portion of this program by saying they have visited two areas with opposing views. Sunderland and other NE town which voted overwhelmingly to leave the EU and Bristol which voted to remain. They chose to go to Bristol first and interviewed people who were sceptical about Brexit. Then they went, not to Sunderland but to Leeds and again showed interviews with prople who were sceptical about Brexit. The they went to Teesdale and interviewed a farmer who was worried about subsideies after 2020. Sunderland was given a very brief mention with one interview at the end of the segment.
The relative prominence Nick Clegg’s report from Ebbw Vale was given was out of all proportion to that portion of Newnight covering the imminent handing over of the letter under Clause 50
It’s not just midday the whole of the news on Channel 130 the BBC media and reporters are totally biased with regards to Brexit. And are doing untold damage to any negotiations that are taking place.
I do not understand why Nick Clegg was chosen to interview people in Ebbw Vale,about why they voted for Brexit. The programme was clearly biased due to Mr. Cleggs subconcious bias influenced by his privileged education ( Private prep and senior schools). A fleeting visit by a person who has not really worked in business, is part of the existing EU establishment ( worked for 10 years in the EU and has a dependent pension), has not really mixed with people who have a different educational background to himself. The interview should have been managed by a qualified journalist with a neutral position followed by comments from people representing both leaveand remain Unfortunately, the message delivered by Mr. Clegg ( which is not surprising given his bias ) was , people voted leave in Ebbw Vale because of immigration,despite the generosity of EU funds towards new buildings. He should have interviewed people who voted for other reasons e.g. They do not agree with a federal state system – they want parliament to make the decisions-they want investment into attracting new companies not buildings. I hope the BBC did not pay Nick Clegg for this part of the programme- please could this be confirmed A terrible piece of journalism .
This item concerning pottery and sheep farming was presented in such doom-laden terms as to what they assumed would happen when Britain left the EU I felt really depressed even though I know this is not what is going to happen. The piece from ex-pats was equally as bad and any glimmer of optimism was glossed over. It really seems like some sort of subliminal brainwashing! Why are we allowing such obvious biased reporting?
BBC is doing right now in Sunderland on the radio. Again being blatantly anti Brexit. They seem to be anti british. Full of liberal leftys and do not support the UK. There must be an enquiry into the devious BBC!
The BBC yet again features Nick Clegg talking about what he believes are the huge problems of Brexit. This is just one small example of the BBCs total bias against Brexit. The BBC is running a campaign against Brexit. It is shameless propaganda. The BBC can no longer be trusted to deliver impartial news.
I listened to the interview on Article 50, with Jonathan Powell, it was very negative about the UK negotiating position, there was no balance. There was also a long interview with EU nationals living here who obviously want to know if they can stay. There was no interview with UK nationals living in the EU, as I do. I would like to know that the UK will work on getting a guarantee for my right to live in the EU before it guarantees the rights of citizens from other countries. There seems to have been very little coverage from the other angle.
How does Nick Clegg get to speak as if he is pretending to understand people who voted Brexit while by slight of hand blaming the UK government for people’s reasons and claiming money from the EU was saving Wales which it is in fact repatriated money from U.K. Taxpayer
Nick Clegg: Unbiased Brexit reporter, ya right
Laura kuenssburg continuous anti brexit bias, is so obvious at every opportunity,always putting a pessimistic slant on her reporting. It would be refreshing if the BBC acknowledged the democratic vote of the people and supported our brexit negotiations.
Too many pro Brexit panel members. Is the BBC ignoring middle of the road or remain people now or must we just sit and listen to smug face david davies all day?
I am sick and tired on the anti-brexit bias on every possible news item. This week Steph McGovern is on a feature called A50 and her deliberate attempts to try and make what was a very positive response to life outside the EU into the worst anti leave item ever. The gentleman was saying all the very positive things he felt would happen but she constantly interrupted with oh but what about.. and trying to feed in the negative.
Qatar to invest £5bn in UK, states has confidence in UK going forward!!. Surely this is a sign that all might be going in the right direction for the UK the day before Teresa May pushes the button for Brexit ,by failing to highlight this on its main page the BBC continues to show its bias on the subject of leaving the EU. Stuart Brown
Despite the majority of the British people voting to leave the E.U. the BBC is now referring to Brexit as if it was a Conservative Government policy not the Democratic will of Britain so trying to polarise & politicise the decision to leave which was taken by the PEOPLE across parties, apart from UKIP.
Bias by omission of key fact. Amazingly alarmist item on the BBC ‘Today’ programme implying all sorts of chaos and cost for UK firms after Brexit in relation to data protection. No mention whatsoever that the ICO has already (October 2016) stated that the EU’s new regulations (GDPR) will be incorporated into UK law. No wonder the BBC is being criticised for anti-Brexit bias! I have complained direct to the BBC and has specified that I require a reply – this has yet to arrive. I will post it here when it does.
“starvation banished, farmers prospered and land flourished”…”so much food there were mountains of butter and lakes of wine”…. “here in the UK those visions won’t last for long as brexit is taking shape on the horizon”. The use of such biased language in a BBC allegedly factual programme is laughable. Despite guest speakers pointing out the positives that can come from brexit we were always drawn back to Tom Heap’s unmistakably pro-remain propaganda. The BBC should be shamed of itself for allowing such biased programmes to air.
I am disgusted the BBC didn’t report, objectively, the March against Brexit! I am British, 61 years old, a retired Chief Executive of a major Chamber of Commerce and Industry and had always believed in the ‘fair play’ of the British, but that belief has been destroyed (and the word is not too hard!) by the last 9 months. Please do not allow yourselves to be sucked into this awful, incredible world where we will lose everything we were!
I have found BBC 1 & BBC 2 has an ongoing bias on EU membership in favour of Remaing in the EU, this despite the referendum result. I believe the BBC have their own agenda and use the news to push their beliefs onto the British people rather than report news in a responsible way. Their bias is not restricted to BREXIT, but most political and international news reporting. The corporation news works in favour of the BBC, its long since been a fair voice for the nation.
Failure to promptly and adequately cover the Unite for EU march in London – under representing the number of demonstrators (100,000) and not highlighting the reason why half the country is angry about Brexit. Is the BBC being bullied by right wing groups and Tory backbenchers?
The BBC ran a storyline in two parts about farming and how Brexit would affect the farming industry. (Once upon a time) The first part about 20 minutes into the Program and the second part about 40 minutes in. All negative about the affects of Brexit and about lack of subsidies. No positive slant. Ie The money we would not be paying to EU. Some of that could be used to pay farms something like they are receiving from the EU now. Typical BBC slant.
Hello . I can not fill in the details of the programme accurately for the simple reason that the whole purpose of my complaint is the complete lack of any coverage from any BBC resource of the Unity for Europe March that took place yesterday 25th March in central London . It is estimated that way in excess of 100000 people from all across the U.K. ABC beyond marched through central London in a peaceful and unified attempt to show the depth of feeling about the decision that is being forced upon us by an unelected Prime Minister . There were cameras from across the world recording the event , but where were the BBC reports ?
Segment discussion on ‘How would Kent strawberry harvest manage without seasonal workers from mainland Europe?”. Who on Earth in any reality has suggested that seasonal workers be barred from the UK? Another straw man argument aimed at frightening people for no reason!
Oh dear, BBC bias against Brexit is alive and well on the Today programme again. Nick Robinson went to Stoke, the “capital of Brexit” to ask questions about the problems of Brexit and being “worse off”. No mention of sovereignty issues such as transfering control and resources to an eu army or control of regulations in commerce. He was nonplussed by an employer who asked what kind of brief the government was working to when making new international regulations for trading worldwide. So bias and negative reporting is now morphing into being less informed and more ignorant than the people they are talking to!
The article stating that vegetable growers in the west Sussex area would have problems regarding staffing levels if foriegn workers were reduced was completely one sided. It did not show the side of local people being refused work in these areas as the employers only recruit in European countries via a local agency and refuse to take british workers. My husband attempted to apply when he was made redundant and was told he could not apply as he did not have the correct passport. He was born in Harrogate Yorkshire. UK!
Oh dear, here was Brexit again involved with populists and right and left wing extremism. I love the way all these worthy journalists and experts feel so able to interpret what the majority of people who voted to leave the EU represent! Also why are Tony Blair and George Osborne getting so much air time? Here they were again on yet another programme?! The majority of people who voted to leave the EU are like me, moderate believers in democracy and fair play, when will we have a voice?
Program was a one sided review of the dangers of Brexit, no balance, as to the pro Brexit view.
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-39305860 This article appeared on the BBC website in their Magazine section a few days ago. Surely this is a pretty flimsily disguised anti Brexit story? I appreciate that this couple (one of whom is German) have decided to go and re-locate to Germany which is fair enough, but surely thousands of people decide to emigrate each year and to label it ‘because of Brexit’ is taking things too far? It is clear that the lady concerned was a vocal Remainer (and was on BBC Question Time before the Referendum), but I find it all the melodrama around the BBC’s treatment of the story to be totally unjustified. Her assertion that ‘I no longer feel welcome’ is not backed up by any facts.
Tremendously good news this morning to hear that 72 cross-party MPs have written a stern letter to hapless Tony Hall, DG of the BBC, warning him of the Corporation’s duty under terms of the new charter to be impartial in reporting on Brexit. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-39335904 When broadcast on R4 Today this morning, presented by Sarah Montague, she said that no one from the BBC was available to comment or give a reaction. There’s a surprise!
The programme could have been retitled the Nicola Sturgeon show. Bias to EU and hence SNP. Considerable time spent in Moray which does not represent all of Scotland but presented as such. Misleading inferences and references regarding Northern Ireland border and suggestion that EU created open border after closed border up to 20 years ago. Border was never closed but was managed for security reasons. Trade continued during the troubles. A significant amount of time was spent on this issue and it is difficult to determine the relevance to Scotland. Only SNP and conservative views presented, no other political parties. It appeared that SNP leader had twice as much air time as Tory leader. There were no comments from Industrialists or manufacturers.
Continual doom and gloom for farming after Brexiters! Why?
So ridiculous I don’t know how Laura kept a straight face. Highlight was a montage backed by chirpy music on all the rules and regulations that come from the EU.
Creepy Tom Heap has always been best known for his incessant moaning about climate change and the way it is devastating ‘the countryside’. In common with many of his other BBC reporter colleagues he has now changed tack, starting with yesterday evening’s episode, and now blames Brexit for everything, including the devastating consequences for fruit and vegetable farmers if they are no longer able to employ seasonal workers from Eastern Europe. How and where does the BBC find such people and are they indoctrinated by the Corporation to stay on-message?
Europe Editor Katya Adler’s admirably balanced programme ‘After Brexit: The Battle for Europe’ broadcast on 9 February 2017 on BBC 2 was as close as the BBC gets to being even remotely impartial and even handed. In sharp contrast, privately educated Scottish Chief Political Editor Laura Kuenssberg’s ‘Brexit Britain’s Biggest Deal’ aired on BBC2 just one month later on 9 March 2017 was an absolute disgrace. In particular the cheap and childish shots of her waving a large cheque at passers by were frankly an insult to intelligent viewers. Four days later on 13 March 2017 the loathsome Nicola Sturgeon, obsessed to the point of lunacy with Scottish grievances, made an egregious speech calling for a second Scottish referendum, coinciding with the day on which the Article 50 Bill cleared Parliament; some might well think that such an act of gross opportunism was tantamount to treason. That same evening on BBC 1 News at Six, Sturgeon’s call for a second referendum (in the manner of Blair, Farron, Major, Heseltine and others clamouring for a rerun of the EU result on the grounds that voters were far too thick to understand what they voted for) was the main story and predictably LK was trotted out in Downing Street to give her reaction. In default sneering mode (voice and facial expressions) Kuenssberg banged on at length about the possibility of a forthcoming titanic struggle faced by Prime Minister May on two fronts, Scottish independence and leaving the EU, which she opined could give Mrs. May a serious headache. This was pure speculation and a personal viewpoint, seemingly predicated on LK knowing the unknowable and having a unique insight into the Prime Minister’s psyche. This is not news, but it has become a common feature of virtually all the BBCs so-called factual news output, which more often than not focuses on the opinions or speculations of carefully selected pundits, or editors, or correspondents, whose invariably biased views echo those of a Corporation stuffed with bien-pensant metropolitans.
Continual repeated predictions that brexit will mean overseas workers will cease to come to the UK.
Comments and feature that migrant agricultural labour …cheap… Will be threatens after brexit…..programme ruined turned off when will they stop this …disgusting
Laura Kuenssberg’s reporting was so blatantly biased towards Remain I was embarrassed for her. She emphasised everything that could go wrong without mentioning anything that could go right. She ignored any possibility that anything could be in our favour, and in my opinion, said nothing positive about our leaving Europe. I’ve always admired her for her intelligence and her perception, but I was more than a little disappointed last night. I also get the feeling that the BBC in general reports negatively about Brexit. Please try and accept that we’re leaving, and the more we accept it and work together to achieve a good outcome, the better for the whole country.
A terrible program – unbalanced arguments and only purpose to create public division. This was the very worst reporting I have ever seen on the BBC.
I watched Laura Kuenssberg’s recent programme on Brexit with mounting incredulity. In the end I could barely decide which was worst: the shallowness of her political analysis, the inanity of the imagery and old films used to intercut her remarks, or the anti-Brexit bias of her reporting. We saw many of the same old prominent Remainers rolled out again (politicians and Eurocrats alike) to tell us how stupid we were to vote Leave, including the BBC’s current favourite son Tony Blair. Laura engaged with these bitter old men and women in what looked like conspiratorial glee and did not challenge their messages of gloom. On the other hand, she treated the Brexiteers (Gove, Johnson and Davies) as if they were naughty children who didn’t understand just how serious all this was. Coming after so many lesser examples of the BBC’s continuing anti-Brexit bias ever since the vote (as well as before it), this programme hit rock bottom for me. Let’s hear about the practicalities by all means – but let’s have them treated in a ‘can do’ fashion rather than wagging fingers at us for being so silly as to think we could ever leave. The comparison with Greenland’s withdrawal from the EU just had me gasping for air! Perhaps the BBC should change its name to the European Union Propaganda Service?
Fed up of this negativity of UK. We ran the country perfectly well before we joined the Common Market so why can we not do the same now. It is time for some positivity and hope for our future trading with all the other Countries and for nurturing our own young peoples talents not every other nations first. The only reason EU will not negotiate fairly is because of the Gina Millers and Tim Farrons of this world who just want us to think like they do.
Program about brexit !!! How one sided. The general public were not offered any say on the Lisbon treaty which eroded so much of the U.K. and the elite polictians wonder why we want out. We joined the European Union in good faith to cooperate in trade and security but ended up in a German run federal state that bullies other member states that don’t fall into line. So the program gave most voice to the pro European supporters and no space for UKIP (Who I do not support but respect) BBC shame on you. I know I am wasting my time moaning but then again I did with the EU !!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yet again a total biased program toward the EU, there wasn’t any counterargument just constant negativity and doom of our leaving the EU. Laura Kuenssberg has shown that she has no time for leave voters and only offered worst case scenario to the people she talk to . This program need to be shown if only to show how biased the BBC is.
I am so sick of the BBC biased views by this commentator Laura Kuensberg .This programme was one sided and pro EU.There was no balanced argument at all.How on earth was slimy Blair and Soubrey allowed to air so much trash..I hate paying a licence fee to fund trash like this,.I will never watch this vile women Laura Kuensberg again.A typical remoaner you can see it a mile off…TOTAL BIAS
The reporter (Laura kuenssberg) made every effort to say why coming out of the EU is bad, even criticising the govement on producing misleading figures then appears with a big cheque saying we are going have to pay this, where did she get this figure has it actually been agreed, no. !! So who making figures up now and misleading the public. I have now stopped watching the BBC news as I find it unblevably bias, Q. Do the eu fund the BBC. !
Approximately the first quarter of the programme with Kuenssberg stating “A Diplomatic Mission from Hell, a Nightmare,” was predominated by a £50bn bill the UK would be presented by the EU & the implication the UK would have to pay as the precursor to any negotiations. This was not countered in any way. No mention of the findings of the ‘House of Lords (cross party) EU Finance Committee’, findings 4/3/2017 :- Taken from the Guardian “Report says British government has no legal obligation to pay for Brexit or outstanding payments into EU budget. The UK could walk away from the European Union in 2019 without paying a penny.” Why was this not reported. Just one of many bias reports by the BBC regarding Brexit?
Only showed people who voted leave who said neagtive comments like: “I am not educated enough to decide” “We shouldn’t have had the vote” “I voted leave , sorry” I wonder how many more were interviewed who have articulate and well reasoned argurements to leave the EU. who were never given air time ? This just depicted all people who voted leave as very stupid, – the Remain myth Why wasn’t the remain lies exposed i.e economic doom etc etc – nothing said. Why didn’ t Kuenssberg grill the remainer MPs and challenge them like she did the leave MP’s, she let the remainers talk and didn’t challenge their view on things and how it will be. However, she pressed David Davis and Boris Johnson very hard indeed. Total disgrace , if the BBC can’t be fair then they shouldn’t broadcast anything
Laura Kuenssberg documentary on the upcoming negations with the European Union as we attempt to leave. This show was not impartial in any way; I would expect the BBC to provide balance reporting and not to make assumptions about what will happen. The language was highly negative and this was just an extension of the doom and gloom that the remain side used during the referendum. This documentary was designed at a negative portrayal of life outside the European Union, lots of negative language and imagery such as She walked around the streets with a large cheque stating the possible exit fee will be 50 billion pounds, which again nothing has been decided, with Boris Johnson himself stating the bill was not reasonable, and this payment will be challenged. Car driving off cliffs. There was also unfair treatment of the guests who represented Brexit, Those who supported Brexit were offered questions by Laura in which she seemed to be offered a fair response, she either didn’t like the answer given and pressured them, had a silly facial expression and acted like the interviewee hadn’t understood the question that was being put with them or tried to back the interviewee into a corner. Those who were pre- remaining seem to get smiles of acceptance and nods of agreement. No pressure was put onto these. There was no real attempted balance even though they tried by having Tim Farron in a small group discussion. Realistically there were no positive or Optimistic views of what could happen, there were 2 experts 1 lawyer telling us how difficult the challenge of leaving the EU and the changes in legislation, I believe the Government have already stated that EU Laws will be transferred over to the statue books of the UK and they will begin looking through and making amendment and changes over time. So this is not something that needs to happen over the 2 year negotiating period. This had been wilfully left out, There was a former chief trade negotiator with the EU and how Bad leaving the EU would be for the United Kingdom and how difficult things were going to get. No counter balance or the lawyer or the trade negotiator. These statements were not put those in the programme representing Brexit such as David Davis or Boris Johnson ministers for comment. If this is the battle for Brexit the BBC has decided which side of the line it stands and that is with Brussels and the European Union. The BBC is not impartial drastically needs to return to its roots and a Neutral source.
Please can the BBC at least try and keep it’s documentaries just biased towards reamaining in the E.U. This programme had the head of politics , Laura Kuenssberg, going around the streets with a giant cheque for £50Bn asking people if they were prepared to pay that amount to leave the E.U. This is cosdwollop, nothing has been decided on that front, It was like watching a politician campaigning for remain! Along with bias at almost every turn, we should have a referendum on the licence fee!
This show was outrageously biased towards the Remain in EU lobby. The show presented a £50b cheque to people on a street that had no basis in fact and was made up. There is nothing in law saying we have to pay anything so what was this cheque about – outrageous stuff. Why not try having a balanced show ???
This programme was ridiculous, literally laughable, in it’s anti-Brexit bias: Laura Kuensberg sneeringy led us through snippets of interviews with Brexit ministers (she does a good sneer, does Ms Kuensberg), and the remainder of those interviewed were relentlessly negative (apart from a couple of chaps talking with Tim Fallon, who were actually slightly upbeat). We even got Tony Blair (no sneers for him) and I was even expecting Michaael Heseltine and the dreaded Gina Miller, but we were spared them this time. But this is no laughing matter. We need to be abe to trust the BBC to guide us through this critical Brexit time with fairness and with impartiality, above all.
Can laura kuenssberg (political reporter) ever say anything good about this government the fact that the economy is doing much better after brexit than expected she is constantly spouting negative angry comments about everything (so obviously a labour supporter & a remainer) please get her off the screen & speaking with a twisted mouth is unsightly.
Laura Kuenssberg’s interviewing approach was very unbalanced. Her questioning of Brexit supporters was consistently hostile and frequently leading. For example, a question to David Davis – “For swathes of voters, shouldn’t you be preparing them for something rather different to what they think they were promised?” Sometimes it wasn’t just hostile questions but hostile statements. She said to Boris Johnson – “We cannot get a deal that is going to be as good as our current relationships inside the single market.” But with pro-Remainers, she time and again failed to ask challenging questions. There was no suggestion to Nicola Sturgeon that leaving the UK would still leave Scotland outside the EU and no guarantee of rejoining. There was no challenge to either Nicola Sturgeon or Sadiq Khan about the workability of exempting Scotland and London from immigration controls. Or else her questions were utterly tame. To William Hague she said “Is it right to compare this to a challenge as great as the Second World War?” With Tony Blair she came up with “Do you think that we are potentially at the start of a really fundamental reshaping of British politics?” I was left in no doubt where Laura Kuenssberg’s sympathies lie.
More speakers against than for brexit so boast as usual. Also presenter seems also to think people who voted to leave are stupid
Totally biased programme by the pro EU BBC, as is most of the news reported on the subject by them, as a license payer my view is, the BBC opinions should be unbiased, so far most of there predictions are unfounded, stick to unbiased reporting. Give your license paying public value for money.
Yet another completely biased BBC program on Brexit. Most of the people interviewed are pro EU. The presenter laura kuenssberg is clearly bias and anti Brexit as much as so – if not more so than newsnights Evan Davis. These well off arrogant people will never be able to comprehend the devastation the EU has had on wage supression and lost jobs on the UK working class. We – the working class – cannot compete -in our own country – with people who earn a 5th of the salary in their own counrty and its a race to the bottom. Whomever is willing to do the job cheapest will get the job. These working class brits who have to compete for jobs with people from other countries where salaries are a 5th of what they are here now out number the more wealthy in society who gain from mass immigration … thats why the Brixit referendum won. I have to pay a TV license to watch this biased nonesense!!!
The presenter – Laura – was really against leaving the EU.The program was entirely anti leaving the EU and was so negative. There are so many benefits for the UK leaving the EU and these were not properly represented. Total bias –
Laura Kuenssberg: this person is so blatantly pro EU it is a disgrace that she is given a platform within mainstream publicly funded media. We had a referendum and it is time that true democracy is honoured. This programme was an absolute disgrace. The BBC do not deserve the money that they take from the people to air this biased propaganda.
Laura Kuenssberg totally biased reporting. All doom & gloom, no posative comments Carrying Cheque showing what Britain would have to pay showed no-one saying they will not get billions from us. BBC has been disgustingly biased against Brexit from the beginning.
Total scaremongering, they have nothing encouraging to say about btexit A law to themselves , total nonsense they’re impartial. All from tax payers money
Why do the BBC never point out the huge amount of trade the EU needs from us, it is always pointed out the risks to various industries as though the the EU had all the cards and and could just stop trading with us. No mention of the 100 billion $ Germany sells to us or the pleading from German car manufactures to continue trading tariff free. business will prevail and deals will be done no EU country can afford to loose the amount of trade they do with the UK.
Winifred Robinson asked a leading question today ‘Has Brexit affected you? Wnen talking to a nurse who had phoned in to Call You and Yours about nursing in the UK. The BBC keeps banging on about racism when it can. I have just come out of hospital and was nursed and cared for by a wide variety of nurses from different nationalities and horror of horror I voted to leave the EU. I treated all the nurses with grateful respect for the care they gave me and witnessed nothing other than positive interactions from my fellow patients, some of whom also dared to vote to leave the EU. I find it so boring that the BBC keeps hammering away at this fake story. Most of us, who voted to leave the EU voted because we believe in democracy and accountability and feel the EU fails the people of Europe in its current form. The BBC is being so blatant in its bias it has been found out by the public and is losing its standing. I would like to find out about its relationship with the EU and why it has behaved more like EUBC for the last eighteen months? Any information on this?
80% of tonight’s panel are remainers – as far as I know since the referendum there has never been a majority of leavers on the panel.ive complained to the BBC about this and got nowhere – can anything be done?
There has been many, many examples of bias I have noticed from the BBC, I am shocked that they can promote themselves to the world as unbiased! Eastenders was just the latest example. Recently there was grafiti on the Vic saying something like Poles go home and then recently the Vic couldnt afford to pay English companies to fix their roof which is threatening their business. Then a Polish worker comes in a saves the day with cheap rates. Then the loan from an English property owner and so called friend that the Vic was using to pay the Pole was recalled. Then the Pole gets involved with a family and friends pancake run on pancake day including his enemy Ian Beal. Ian almost has a heart attack and of course the Pole is the first there to save the day and cuddling Ian in a scene of emotion at his home after. This has nothing to do with my feelings about Polish people. Even though I am pro-Brexit, my opinion is the Poles have history during the war of supporting us and we should be remembering that. Their may be examples experienced of people suffering from competitively cheap labour but ultimately they are our friends and maybe we should reduce our prices. Increasing prices is only fuelling interest rates anyway. The point is I am shocked and ashamed by the BBC, I find myself shouting at the TV and wish some of the media would out them.
I have lodged 2 complaints direct with the BBC but after standard acknowledgement nothing. – they don’t care. Much more likely to take action if I complain about a pronunciation error. The obvious Remain Bias of BBC is so embarrassing.
