We’re big admirers of HEqual, and we thank him for the extraordinary amount of work he’s undertaken over the past nine months relating to his complaint to the BBC about the treatment meted out to us by BBC Radio Nottingham in the run-up to the 2015 general election. He’s just published this. The first link will take you to the radio hustings I attended, in which an all-female audience asked only questions about women’s issues. Every time I raised a men’s issue, the feminist presenter withdrew the microphone.
HEqual’s conclusions include the following, with which we concur whole-heartedly:
Ultimately the BBC complaints process is an utter farce and a total waste of time.
