Nigel Farage audience boos BBC after Nick Robinson tirade

Nigel Farage’s live audience on his GB News show booed tonight when asked about the BBC.

Mr Farage played a clip from Radio 4 this morning of Nick Robinson appearing to take a swipe the channel as he interviewed Conservative MP Jacob Rees-Mogg.

In the clip, Mr Robinson said to Mr Rees-Mogg: “You’re now a TV host.”

The Tory MP, who has his own GB News show, replied: “I am on GB News between 8pm and 9pm.”

Mr Robinson then said: “Well I have to tell our audience, because there are not that many people that watch.”

Speaking on his show tonight, a furious Mr Farage said: “So Nick Robinson, how many people would watch you if you didn’t work for the BBC? Who the hell do you think you are?

“The outright arrogance of these people at the BBC given the fact we all have to pay all this money to watch them and listen to them every year is a complete and absolute disgrace.

“It makes me even more determined that GB News succeeds as a news channel and that I win those awards this Friday.”

The former Ukip leader turned to his live audience and asked: “Tell me, what do you all think of the BBC as an audience?”

A laughing Mr Farage added “keep in clean” as audience members erupted in loud boos.
