News item on murder of Polish man was firstly introduced as what “may” be a hate crime. The attack upon the victim was then described as “a frenzied attack triggered by Brexit”. No evidence was offered to support any of these comments. This was indeed an appalling crime but it appears that the BBC’s editorial directive to undermine Brexit is now going way too far. The news editor should hang his/her head in shame at this blatant exploitation of a tragic murder victim.
