PETITION TO SACK BBC’S LAURA KUENSSBERG TAKEN DOWN, AFTER BEING HIJAKED BY SEXIST TROLLS.
A petition started in the wake of a perecived bias against the Labour party and it’s Leader Jeremy Corbyn by BBC news Political editor Laura Kuenssberg
has been taken down by Joe, who started it.
The petition had been signed by over 35,000 people, after only 4 days, before todays news.
A very strong article appeared in the Guardian today linking the petition with sexist trolls on twitter and saying the petition had a sexist agenda.
Joe, who started the petition replied to
accusation in the Guardian, he said: “This petition has precisely zero to do with Kuenssberg’s gender. Regardless of the gender you identify with, there is no excuse for biased reporting and misrepresentation of facts when you represent an organisation that has been famed for its impartiality and balanced approach.”

Joe said the following:
“When I started my campaign I was trying to raise a serious issue about what I saw as a reporter not being balanced and fair in the way that the news was covered. My petition has since been hijacked by a group of people who absolutely do not share my views.
I would like to reassure everyone that I am a passionate advocate for equality in all areas, not just gender equality. This petition has precisely zero to do with gender.
As a result of the sexist trolls who have attempted to derail my petition, I have decided to take it down. “
