The BBC’s Nick Robinson and, er, Britain First’s Jayda Fransen? – Guy Debord’s Cat

Nick Robinson with Britain First's Jayda Fransen.

Nick Robinson with Britain First’s Jayda Fransen.

The next time a Kipper tells you that there’s a left-wing bias at the BBC, you show them this image, advises Guy Debord’s Cat.

I saw this photo of the BBC’s political editor, Nick Robinson getting cosy with Britain First’s Jayda Fransen (is that an English name?) on Twitter and had to post it here. Somehow, you just can’t see Old Nick getting that close to the Green Party or TUSC candidate.

Beastrabban adds: “Nick Robinson was the head of Macclesfield Young Conservatives at a time when Thatcher’s administration was acutely embarrassed by how extremely right-wing they were becoming. A string of Young Conservative Clubs were closed down after they declared their support for racial nationalism.

“This is, or was, the official policy of the NF and BNP. It’s the doctrine that Britain belongs only to white Britons, and that non-whites should either be expelled or reduced to second-class citizenhips under a form of apartheid. From this photo, it seems that former ideological habits die extremely hard in certain branches of the BBC.

“Sieg Heil, O Robinson!”

    Personally, I think we can give Robinson a pass here. This shot is quick selfie by the BF woman snapped at the Rochester count; although it’s a bit difficult to believe that a political reporter wouldn’t recognise. the BF logo on her jacket, it was the middle of night, when he had been meeting loads of people and the meeting just lasted a second or two.
    I’m not a great supporter of him, but this article comes across as petty bullying and gratuitous smearing. You’re better than that.

      I’m not so keen to be forgiving. I’ve been a reporter at late counts so I know the score.

    Robinson is obviously a fifth columnist abusing his privileged position and using the BBC to disseminate Right-wing propaganda. That’s why I, together with an increasing number of others, have ditched the moron box and got a life. The £145 TV Licence fee I don’t pay goes to towards my broadband subscription. Should you wish to fish out any nuggets from the televisual human ordure on offer, you can watch them on catch-up TV. No licence needed.
