The comments made by Julian Smith, the Conservative MP for Skipton and Ripon, on Twitter on 17 December 2021.
Just heard you on @BBCr4today – wasn’t the BBC just deciding how to run its own show? ‘usual tricks’ is an unnecessary slur & just corrodes trust in another U.K. institution on the basis of no fact. You got on their show. What is the actual issue?
[in response to John Redwood – BBC up to usual tricks. Invited me on for a live on Today at 7.10. I agreed. After hearing what I might say they cancelled and are talking about a pre record later! No surprise there.]
