Carol Vorderman to leave BBC radio show after 'breaking social media rules'

Postby C » 08 Nov 2023, 12:52

.
Carol Vorderman is to leave her weekly show on BBC Radio Wales, saying she has broken BBC guidelines by attacking the government on social media.

The presenter, who has hosted the Saturday morning show for five years, is a vocal critic of the government on X, formerly Twitter.

The BBC recently published new impartiality rules for stars and staff.

Vorderman said she was not "prepared to lose my voice on social media" and managers "have decided I must leave".
Her previous posts include one on Saturday that said: "This iteration of the Tory Party needs to be utterly dismantled at the next election."

On the same day, she commented on a post from Home Secretary Suella Braverman, who said she and the "law-abiding majority" want to stop people who "cause nuisance and distress" by pitching tents in public spaces.
Vorderman said: "What I want to stop, and what the law abiding majority wants to stop is your vile government clinging onto power for a day longer."

Good for her!

I think Suella needs to take out the word 'Law-abiding' when referring to her government

Carol is living proof that miracles do exist, because 18 months ago, she was a true blue.

She makes Pritti Patel seem like Mother Theresa. She is a very dangerous woman

You can take the ‘speed’ out of that sentence and it would still work :D

Indeed :D
It was only the on line copy, which was highlighting her and Cameron launching the "Let's make math's interesting" project. I put 2+2 together and got 5
