Common sense from BBC sparks Labour outrage
This morning veteran BBC presenter John Humphrys dared to tell the truth about Thomas Mair, who murdered Labour MP Jo Cox last year – but his honesty has provoked outrage among the politically correct establishment.
On this morning’s flagship Radio 4 programme Today, Humphrys was interviewing Mark Rowley, Scotland Yard’s top anti-terrorism officer.
Mair was never charged with terrorism – due to the total absence of any evidence connecting him to serious political activity – but opportunistic liar, cocaine abuser and FBI informant Todd Blodgett succeeded in selling lies to several news organisations, falsely claiming that Mair had attended a high-level nationalist gathering in London linked to H&D editor Mark Cotterill.
Scotland Yard’s Rowley made a vague reference during today’s interview, saying:
“We know that extreme right-wing related issues led to the tragic murder of Jo Cox not that long ago.”
Humphrys instantly corrected him:
“In that case wasn’t it that he was a very deeply disturbed man, mentally ill wasn’t he? It slightly muddies the water doesn’t it when we talk about that as terrorism? That was a murder wasn’t it?”
Cue howls of outrage from dishonest or ignorant Labourites, including former Home Secretary Jacqui Smith.
