Philip Davies MP urges the BBC to hire more people with different outlooks

Yes, it’s that man again, Philip Davies MP (C, Shipley), who is tomorrow getting married to Esther McVey (C, Tatton), a former cabinet minister. This clip is an extract (10:10) from a podcast published today by the Daily Telegraph, a discussion between Christopher Hope, the paper’s chief political correspondent, and Philip.

At 9:15 Philip gets to the heart of the matter about the BBC, in his usual inimitable style:

The BBC is spending £100 million, supposedly, on diversity. The only diversity the BBC needs is some people with different opinions who don’t have this metropolitan, left-wing, lentil-eating, sandal-wearing, beard-growing outloook. They need to get out more.
