BBC has apologise, again, for failure to scrutinise Nadine Dorries’ claims about Sue Gray.
It comes as an old tweet by Nadine will come back to haunt her.
The broadcaster said in a statement on Friday that “there should have been more challenge” when the former culture secretary and Boris Johnson loyalist made allegations about Sue Gray on Radio 4’s World at One.
The underfire broadcaster said that they handled complaints from listeners who felt Dorries was allowed to make “inaccurate and biased” claims about Gray and Starmer.
It said: “Nadine Dorries was the first and only cabinet minister and Boris Johnson loyalist to have given an interview about Sue Gray’s appointment, and the programme was keen to press her on her reaction as well as what the appointment meant for the work of the privileges committee. In hindsight, we agree that there should have been more challenge to Dorries’ claims.”
Internet never forgets
She didn’t like Gary’s stance much…
Well, back in 2018 she shared a video and wrote: “This is straight from the 1930s Nazi Germany rule book – Momentum’s behaviour towards former Labour council leader and councillors.”
“Oh dear…. What a shame someone dug this out! Embarrassing for you, Nadine!”
