Well, blow me down with a feather!

Newsnight have appointed Ben Chu as their economics editor while Helen Thomas is on maternity leave. Chu is a lefty Remainer who has churned out a regular diet of sour-faced news stories attacking the Tories and generally revelling in bad economic news as the Independent’s smug economics editor, attacking Brexiteers as “xenophobes” and calling politicians like Michael Gove and Jacob Rees-Mogg “intellectual and moral pygmies”. He’ll fit right in at the BBC…


  1. We can expect not just off the scale bias against Brexit but also Edward-Said "Orientalism" attacks on us for not loving the Chinese Communist regime more:

    Apparently in his book Ben tells us there are "whispers" or myths around around that have to be demolished - like the idea the Chinese are racist. Yeah, Ben, yeah.

  2. Coming from that rag to the BBC, he certainly knows the meaning of "independence".
