The BBC is up to its old tricks….attacking the Daily Mail for its ‘dodgy past’:
Curious it is so sanguine about the dodgy past of one in its own ranks:
Newsnight reporter faces call to quit over secret links to BNP: Controversial Left-winger tried to cover up role in racist demonstrations
A BBC journalist faced calls for his sacking last night for attempting to cover up the extent of his involvement with the far-Right British National Party.
Duncan Weldon, the controversial new economics correspondent for Newsnight, took part in a racist leafleting campaign in 2000 which made scaremongering claims about refugees being ‘shipped’ to Newcastle.
The leaflets alleged that a London council planned to move 16,000 asylum seekers to the area, saying the ‘shipping’ of refugees would ‘change the ethnic make-up of the area’, lead to ‘whites living in fear’ and cause Newcastle to become ‘riot-torn’.
A BBC spokesman said last night that Mr Weldon ‘is a highly respected professional who has assured us he has not been a member of the BNP’.
Nick Griffin might be interested…..renounce the ideology and get yourself a job at the Beeb….no questions asked….as long as you’re good at your job.
