Andrew Marr Show

Whilst interviewing John Major, Andrew Marr allowed JM to ramble on incessantly without any interruption. Yet when Boris Johnson was interviewed, Andrew Marr was damn right rude, constantly interrupted him & never let the poor chap finish a sentence. The BBC had also gone to great lengths to present evidence that reflected awkwardly on BJ & the ‘out’ campaign, yet had presented nothing of a comparative nature to JM & the ‘remain’ campaign. I want to hear both sides of the referendum debate, the facts & details, not simply what the BBC consider is appropriate to suit their cause. It is the BBC’s responsibility to remain impartial in this EU debate, but the volume of air-time given & the ‘selective’ time slots allocated to promoting the ‘remain’ campaign, far outweighs any equivalent television / radio time given to the ‘out’ campaign. Furthermore, I am also disappointed that the ‘remain’ campaign appears to receive ‘positive – quality’ air-time & yet much of any air-time given to the ‘out’ campaign is presented in a ‘negative’ fashion, almost to the point of ridicule. I am appalled at the BBC’s blatant acts of bias in this referendum / debate.

    The BBC is a national disgrace and the mouthpiece for the Remain campaign. The bias is obvious in every possible classification – time/duration allocated, attitude of presenters, behaviour of presenters, the “evidence” introduced and so on. The Marr presentation on Sunday is NOT a one off, it is an example of standard BBC behaviour.
    I believe the BBC has a legal obligation to adopt a neutral stance on political issues. It is obvious that presentations since May 2016 have become more and more extreme. I now have evidence taken from the Marr “interviews of Major and Johnson that demonstrate an outrageous bias. For the remainder of the campaign, I shall continue to collect evidence. If the BBC does not remedy its abuse of power, I shall seek a means of holding the BBC to account!

    Sorry Sandra, you are sadly mistaken! Major was allowed to speak, Johnson was not.

    Major always appeared, in public, to be a calm, rational person, but, behind the scenes his language was anything but calm and reasonable. For instance, he was recorded referring to others as “bastards” way back when he was PM.
