Nick Robinson was “interviewing” Nigel Farage, supposedly about his claim that the Remain side was using Jo Cox’s death to associate intolerance and anti-immigration feeling with the Leave campaign, but proceeded to talk over him and kept repeating triumphantly that, with the Referendum almost here, this could be the last interview with Farage on the BBC. Farage is used to this sort of treatment from the BBC and battled on, but I can’t imagine any of the politicians on either side being treated as a figure of fun in the quite such a disrespectful way. So much for the call to treat public figures with a sense of dignity in the wake of Jo Cox’s tragic murder, whatever their politics.

    Unfortunately, I did not see the programme! If the BBC wish to denigrate the 5,000,000 people who voted for UKIP in the last general election, then I believe it is time to take the fight to the BBC. In my opinion, the time has come to take direct action to destroy the BBC in its present form, by whatever means are necessary!
