Missed this, but when is someone also going to inform LBC about this one? A few of their presenters are constantly doing it and it is really disrespectful.
(Yes, it is that Simply Red)
You see the ridiculous lengths the British Establishment will go to protect their mistakes, even so far as broadcasting this show in the name of 'Balance'
This is the same infamous balance that has the BBC both siding Russian Propaganda and America Nazis.

Well, I just got back from London and I'm knackered but more than that, I'm absolutely fucking furious. Hey, #FionaBruce, go and ask them whether it was a one off. 🤬

Classic Posho 'non-apology'
"I'm sorry you (silly woke people) got offended"
“The fact that the BBC felt the need to take an ‘impartial’ stance between a man who broke his wife’s nose and the woman whose nose was broken, tells you everything you need to know about how warped and ludicrous this notion is.”
Rubbish! #FionaBruce did NOT provide a "legal" clarification of comments made re #StanleyJohnson. She just said that his friends called it a "one off". It wasn't. And she should not have quoted the wife-beater's friends! #DomesticViolence #BBCQT
BBC News: Fiona Bruce to step back from Refuge after 'storm' over Stanley Johnson remark on Question Time BBC News - Fiona Bruce to step back from Refuge after 'storm' over Stanley Johnson remark on Question Time
I'd like to see #FionaBruce step back from #BBCQT, but doubt that will happen. Within the BBC and wider English nomenklatura, Bruce is untouchable, and she knows it!
"the guy has been accused of that, but if he did it, he only did it once."
Nice try #FionaBruce, but you said what you said....
https://www.theguardian.com/media/2023/mar/13/fiona-bruce-to-step-down-as-refuge-ambassador-over-stanley-johnson-comments?CMP=Share_AndroidApp_Other #fionabruce #stanleyjohnson This is woke culture gone mad. All the lovely Fiona did was simply point out that soon-to-be-knighted Stanley Johnson only broke his wife's nose and hospitalised her once. I simply don't see what the fuss is about. I suppose Gary Lineker or Gary Neville or some ex-footballing Gary will be hosting Question Time next.
If you're "legally obliged" to make a flippant, dangerous statement as #FionaBruce did last week, perhaps it's time to have a word with your employer... Or resign.
#BBCQT presenter #fionaBruce will step back from her role as an ambassador for the charity Refuge, following a comment she made on air about Stanley Johnson, accused of trivialising domestic violence during last week's show after stepping in when Johnson was described as a "wife-beater"
"Just so everyone knows, Stanley Johnson's wife ...said he had broken her nose & she'd ended up in hospital as a result.
Friends of Stanley Johnson have said - it was a one-off"
Not suspended by BBC, mind!
#FionaBruce "...it was only once..."
'The wife of ‘Sir Stanley’ couldn’t tolerate his abuse and nor should the rest of us - 'https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2023/mar/12/wife-of-sir-stanley-couldnt-tolerate-his-abuse-neither-should-rest-of-us #BorisJohnson #StanleyJohnson #DV #DomesticViolence #ToryCorruption #Tory #BBC #BBCCorruption
#fionaBruce may be able to engender a persistent bias to the right on #bbcQt (aka the #fionaBruceShow ) without comment - but were she to make repeated social media posts on how to dive in the penalty box whilst playing #football and get away with it I doubt either #bbc bosses or the licence payers would care much ......
"#FionaBruce is deeply sorry about what she said......." said a Woman's Refuge charity who values celebrity above decency....
Such a very disappointing reaction from #RefugeCharity regarding #FionaBruce minimising the #DomesticViolence carried out by #StanleyJohnson putting his wife in hospital. We all know that "one off" doesn't exist when it comes to spousal assault.
#BBC apology for "limited sports" is nothing as more and more are supporting #GaryLinekker and his comparison of #ToryCriminals as #ToryFascists
No mention that his wife Charlotte said he beat her many times over many years - effectively silencing a victim of domestic violence.
Why has #Refuge not sacked Bruce?
Have to laugh at those who think the BBC was once impartial. It has never in all its days been impartial. Indeed, it is the finest and by far the most potent propaganda machine ever created. Just as Reith promised it would be. And as indisputedly proven by those still thinking it used to be impartial. Go figure!
#Lineker #Attenborough Appropriately, given what #FionaBruce said, the #BBC is behaving like an abuse victim: trying to appease the Tories so they don’t defund it. It’s going to backfire though because censoring popular culture figures is exactly the excuse the Tories need to attack the BBC. The more unpopular it gets, the easier it is for them.
‘David Cameron made the referendum policy because he didn’t want to risk losing 10 or 15 seats to UKIP and look where it has got us’
This 16-year-old says the Conservative Party are responsible for Brexit. #bbcqt
This is from 2019 but is still so relevant.
If you've suspected #questiontime chaired by #FionaBruce has a #rightwing bass, here is Dr Russell Jackson from Sheffield Hallam University, laying out the data you need to support your suspicion(s).... not so much a programme for the informed discussion of current affairs, more a vehicle for (yet more) right wing propaganda... boost this & spread the word.
