Earlier this year, Conservative commentator Calvin Robinson delivered a scathing rebuke of the BBC, as he declared he was “fed up” with the broadcaster. Speaking to talkRADIO, Mr Robinson criticised the BBC Breakfast presenters Naga Munchetty and Charlie Stayt for appearing to mock the Union Flag. At the end of their interview with Housing Secretary Robert Jenrick this week, Mr Stayt drew attention to a large flag and picture of the Queen in the background, prompting Ms Munchetty to giggle.

Mr Robinson said that recent uproar on BBC Breakfast exposed “anti-British sentiment at the BBC”.

The senior fellow at the Policy Exchange told talkRADIO: “There’s a lot of anti-British sentiment at the BBC.

“Why is patriotism a bad thing?

“We have our sovereign, and we should have a portrait of Her Majesty the Queen in the offices of the Secretaries of State. It should be there, it is appropriate.

“And to make a big deal out of it and look down their noses at it, like it is some strange thing, it is bizarre to me.”

It is not the first time the BBC is accused of harbouring “anti-British sentiment”.

In February 2020, GB News chairman Mr Neil criticised the corporation over a video posted on the CBBC Twitter feed.
