After employing anti-Boris Johnson radio host Matthew Stadlen, the BBC makes a U-turn.

After it was revealed that a broadcaster they had employed had advised that people vote Labour and had frequently criticized the Prime Minister, the BBC made a U-turn last night.

Matthew Stadlen, a former LBC broadcaster, announced on social media that he will be joining Radio 5 Live as a’stand-in’ presenter.

However, it was then revealed that Mr Stadlen had constantly insulted the government and Boris Johnson on social media, implying that the Conservatives should be “turned out.”

When the Twitter posts were raised with the BBC last night, the corporation said it had ‘offered him some temporary work’ but ‘our plans have changed for now’. In a recent tweet, Mr Stadlen said: ‘Boris Johnson and Nadine Dorries are both unfit to govern.’ In another he said it was ‘difficult to decide who is less trustworthy out of Boris Johnson and Michael Gove’.

He also described the PM as a ‘lying law-breaker’ and when asked who else people should vote for, he replied ‘Labour’.

A Government figure told political website Guido Fawkes that the posts showed Mr Stadlen did not just hold ‘private political views’ but was ‘nakedly partisan’.
