The BBC is part of the European Elite so cant tell the truth on Brexit or Frexit

Thanks to the lightning strike on the Greek Hovel I spent Saturday night in a hotel room in Kalamata which meant that I got to enjoy the BBC World News. Jeepers it was excruciating as the presenters reported on something they obviously felt was a disaster, that is to say Brexit.

In one session we went live to interview a chap in Paris. natch, it was not an independent expert but the BBC's own man there Hugh Schofield who discussed how the French viewed Brexit. Please note how "the French" viewed the vote.

Hugh prattled on gamely for two minutes saying how the Froggies wanted the UK to crack on, invoke article 50 and essentially bugger off out of the EU. That is indeed the Government line. But out in France itself the most recent poll shows that 61% of Froggies want out of the EU too. So the correct answer to "how to the French feel" is "bravo les Rosbifs, prochaines nous" or words to that effect.

Hugh and the BBC view the French Government as speaking for ordinary Froggies because the BBC believes that the State can tell little people what to do and as the French Government is a left wing pro Euro one it shares DNA with the Beeb. But the political and media elite no more speak for ordinary Froggies than they did for ordinary Britons on June 23rd.

We the people are starting to revolt and the BBC - which we pay for - needs to understand that it is increasingly perceived by the great unwashed, the sans-culottes, as part of the problem.
