Just after 8:11 a.m. on Thursday 20 July, Radio 4’s Today programme played a clip where a female presenter (either Sarah Montague or Mishal Husain) had earlier interviewed the MP Liam Fox about his WTO negotiations. This Today presenter then asserted to Liam Fox, and to the millions of Today programme listeners: “Our prosperity depends on the EU”. This is anti-Brexit propaganda: some 56 % of Britains’ trade is with countries outside the EU with whom we have a balance of payments surplus, whilst we have a massive trade deficit with the EU.  The BBC is supposed to be following Lord Reith’s policy of inform, educate and entertain, not attack Brexit!
