Commenting on the BBC Trust’s review “A BBC Trust Review of the Breadth of Opinion Reflected in the BBC’s Output” (Stuart Prebble Report), Sir Andrew Green, Chairman of Migration Watch UK, said:
“This report is a lost opportunity.
The BBC Trust’s conclusion that there is no persuasive evidence that significant areas of opinion are not given due weight today simply skates over the BBC's record in recent years which the report itself describes. We now know from the census that over three million immigrants have arrived in just ten years yet there was hardly a peep from the BBC- still less adequate coverage of the case against mass immigration. Unfortunately, it seems from the BBC Trust’s comment that this report will be taken by the BBC as a licence to continue ignoring the licence fee payers.”
