…and has forced the BBC to apologise for his on-screen stupidity.
The BBC has offered to apologise to the Muslim Council of Britain after airing claims the organisation encouraged the killing of British troops. The comments were made by the former Daily Telegraph editor Charles Moore on Thursday’s edition of Question Time. Mr Moore spoke about the Islamic protests which disrupted a UK soldiers’ homecoming parade in March
Mr Moore said the Muslim Council of Britain had been reluctant to condemn the killing and kidnapping of Britain soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan, and claimed the organisation thought such activities were “a good thing”.
This of course not long after Policy Exchange was forced to apologise and took its report on Muslim extremism off its site. I’m not a fan of the MCB but you’d think someone who works for an apparently respected think-tank would have some basic facts in hand before spouting off on national television.
