Claims are being made on Twitter that the BBC North West has issued an apology for their attempt to mar the reputation of UKAgainstHate march. If they haven’t they should.
The BBC reporting was so inaccurate that they even named the wrong organisation, stating that EDL, not UKAgainstHate, had arranged the event. One of the speakers, Tommy Robinson left the EDL years ago, stating it was difficult to stop extremists tagging along.
UKAgainstHate is a fresh new movement, which had a multi-racial diverse panel of speakers, including Mohammed Fiaz, an ex-Muslim; David Ramos, a Christian minister; and Tommy English of GaysAgainstSharia.
The claims are Twitter are that the BBC has also conceded that this was not a far-right march but a protest for gay rights. This would be a massive blow to the establishment’s attempts to demonise the voice of the people. A major failing in their efforts to always shut down debate by slamming it as racist.
We are now waiting on Andy Burnham and the Manchester Evening News.
