Le Pen fascist propaganda on BBC

Corbyn joins protest at BBC against its decision to host Le Pen

THE BBC was condemned for hosting an interview with a fascist as remembrance services were held across Britain to commemorate the war dead.

Andrew Marr Show viewers reacted with anger as French National Front leader Marine Le Pen, who claimed she could become the next French president, was given time to air her views.

Mr Marr admitted that the decision and timing had “offended and upset” people but claimed that it is a journalist’s responsibility to report that Ms Le Pen could be in power next year.

He added: “In the end we are a news programme and I don’t think the best way to honour the fallen is to fail to report on the next big challenge to Western security.”

A protest was held yesterday by Unite Against Fascism outside the BBC studio in central London and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, who was also appearing on the show, joined them in a call for the BBC not to offer a platform to fascists.

Shadow education secretary Angela Rayner wrote on Twitter: “Marine Le Pen speaking on Marr, Remembrance Sunday? Why not interview our veterans who fought fascists and lost so many comrades? So wrong, BBC!”

RAF war veteran Harry Leslie Smith, aged 93, wrote: “We make fascism normal by interviewing its adherent rather than stridently and logically arguing against their ideas.”

Labour MP Tristram Hunt said the decision to interview Ms Le Pen was “pretty grotesque.”

Even candidate for Ukip leadership Suzanne Evans attempted to distance herself from the National Front after Ms le Pen had claimed that the two parties were not dissimilar.

Ms Le Pen said: “There is not a hair’s breadth of difference between what Ukip thinks and what the National Front thinks, let’s be truthful here.”

She claimed that her election would be the third act of a “global revolution” in which Britain has voted to leave the EU and Donald Trump has been elected US president.

Speaking on ITV’s Peston On Sunday, Ms Evans said: “I was appalled: She said: ‘France is full, we don’t want any more immigrants.’ That is so far away from Ukip policy it is unimaginable.

“We are miles away from Le Pen.”

Planet Earth II, narrated by Sir David Attenborough, will reveal our planet from a completely new perspective, using significant advances in both filming technology and our understanding of the natural world.

Tonight at 20:00, British time, on BBC One TV, will be the first part of the series; about islands.
