A former BBC boss last night demanded an apology from a Labour MP who claimed he was denied the chance to be a BBC presenter because of ‘racism’.
Tim Bishop, former head of BBC East, spoke out after Norwich Labour MP Clive Lewis said an unnamed manager at BBC East, where Lewis worked as a journalist for ten years, had kept him off screen for ‘racist’ reasons.
Mr Bishop said he believed he was the manager Mr Lewis was referring to – and insisted that the allegation was totally false. Moreover, Mr Bishop said he fired Mr Lewis as a political reporter because he failed a basic political general knowledge test – and he made no effort to get a job as a presenter.
Another BBC insider said when Mr Lewis was invited to present a weekend political programme, he overslept – missing part of the broadcast – and was not asked again.

Clive Lewis is right: his former employer, the BBC, was racist. It still is racist. It is now even more racist than when Lewis was given a job as a political reporter – at which he reportedly failed to shine.
But, as we all know, or should know: the BBC is institutionally racist, against not all white people but, principally against the English and to a lesser degree against anyone of British ancestry. The corollary to this is that anyone who is an immigrant, or the descendant of an immigrant, from Africa or Asia, is unfairly favoured – in spite of their lack of ability or unsuitability for the job. It’s not what you know. It’s not even who you know. It’s where your grandparents are from.
The BBC, like the rest of the political and media Establishment, is dominated by immigrants and the descendants of immigrants. The EU’s diabolical Coudenhove-Kalergi plan is gradually being implemented.
Patria is the one and only party to stand against the political and media Establishment’s jihad against the English.
Vote No to EUrabia at the forthcoming referendum.
