The above was put together by unnamed BBC Scotland staff seconded to stiffen coverage of the coronavirus crisis and hopefully lead to the PM being forced to resign. BBC Scotland is now leading the campaign to defend the wider BBC against Tory attacks on the licence.
Sources had told BBC Huddersfield:
‘Some staff at Calderdale and Huddersfield Trust said they were told self-isolating would need to be taken as annual leave if they chose not to work.’
Despite this shocking news, the staff at BBC Huddersfield lacked the guts to exploit it properly. Luckily a BBC Scotland staffer, thought to be Bobby Mitchell, was there to lead the attack and produce the above.
I’m reminded of the early days of the ‘English’ Civil War when the Scots Covenanters saved the English Parliament from defeat.
