Laura Kuenssberg news: BBC star risks corporation’s wrath as she retweets anti-EU post | Politics | News

The Beeb’s political editor was accused of breaching the publicly-funded corporation’s strict impartiality rules by sharing the post. It was uploaded by account RE Parks and shared a video of Prince Charles appearing at the G20 summit in Rome.

During the GB News clip, the heir to the throne tells world leaders: “It is also impossible not to hear the despairing voices of young people, who see you ladies and gentlemen as the stewards of the planet.”

He was referring to the thousands of climate change protesters across the planet who are demanding that governments commit to substantially reducing carbon emissions.

Quoting the clip, RE Parks asked whether Prince Charles would “dare tell” EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen and French President Emmanuel Macron “that it’s time to stop the environmentally shameful movement of EU Parliament every month?”

They added: “And if he doesn’t, why should we take him seriously?”

“She ought to be sacked immediately.”

“Where is the balanced view from both sides that you talk about? (Clearly only when it suits you).”

News of the retweet comes just days after the BBC reaffirmed its commitment to impartiality.

This includes clear guidance on how its employees should use social media.

Posted on Friday, it says: “The new social media guidance applies to everyone working at the BBC whether they are using social media professionally or personally, with clear steps to follow to maintain standards and integrity.

“There are four rules and expectations everyone must follow:

“Always behave professionally, treating others with respect and courtesy at all times – follow the BBC’s Values.

“Don’t bring the BBC into disrepute.

“If your work requires you to maintain your impartiality, don’t express a personal opinion on matters of public policy, politics, or ‘controversial subjects’.

“Don’t criticise your colleagues in public. Respect the privacy of the workplace and the confidentiality of internal announcements.”
