    I've had a bit of a think about this. Being devil's avocado, I wonder if this is all just a media smokescreen to obscure real news and divide us. Yes. I know. I'll be wearing a V for Vendetta mask soon.

    I really can't see why Mr Linaker, repeating the BBC's own political views should get him in trouble with them. Was it all a terribly conceived publicity stunt? (Though I can't see why).

    Suppose that Mr Linaker is being perfectly genuine, heartfelt and humane in his approach. In his mind he really is trying to speak good and is not the bad guy champagne socialist. The media rips into him to get clicks, enrage people that love being enraged and a totally pointless storm is caused by the lazy media agitators.

    Perhaps, instead, someone should have a conversation with him stating why his views might be skewed rather than do what the lefties do and scream.

    Maybe all it takes is to talk to him honestly because isn't he just re-iterating the BBC's own uninformed bias?

    The BBC is pretty partisan for being paid for by tax payers. The fact he got ‘punished’ is surprising given his political stance is very much in line with the BBC, then again, he’s already been reinstated, so it was just a slap on the wrist and he continued tweeting his political crap. The Wokists will have their way, makes a really good case for having BBC completely privatized and defunded though.

    I think all it takes is for someone to have a bit of a friendly chat with some of these folk because they're stuck in an echo chamber.

    They shout. We shout back. Didn't we learn in the Ministry skool(tm), that this doesn't work?

    I don't think Mr Linaker is such a bad chap underneath it all. Yes. He has a bally sight more money than me and I am envious of that, I have to be honest.

    You catch a fly with sugar, not salt'n'vinegar.

    (See what I did there?)
