Is Ofcom reading? Euro economist Bregman’s Twitter takedown of This Week is a revelation

“Worst experience”: Mr Bregman said Davos was “bewildering” but This Week “beats everything”.

Dutch historian Rutger Bregman could be heading for notoriety for a second time this year after he tweeted a damning account of his experiences on BBC political discussion programme This Week.

Mr Bregman, who is best-known for a viral video telling the economic elites in Davos to pay their taxes, explained what happened in this Twitter thread:

This Writer sincerely hopes that Ofcom, which is currently investigating whether the BBC is honouring its obligation to be impartial in its news reporting, has been paying attention. If not, I would encourage Mr Bregman to get in touch with that organisation.

Oh, and his book? It’s called Utopia for Realists – and how we can get there and is available at Amazon and Waterstones.
