BBC Proms outrage as show hijacked by Remainers – ‘they must hate their country’ – News 247

 Before the event Remainers handed out 50,000 EU flags across the various Last Night of the Proms events
Since the 2016 EU referendum, bitter Remain campaigners have been allowed to hijack the music festival by waving EU flags instead of the traditional Union flag to show their unity with Brussels
 Those watching the live event on BBC1 yesterday evening took to social media to air their frustration
  One wrote on Twitter: “The Remoaners have hijacked a British institution with all the EU flags at The Last Night Of the Proms
”  Another said: “Just watched it now – full of EU flags and hats. I really want to know what motivates these EU fanatics
They must hate their country.” Another Twitter user said: “Of [email protected] is for middle class liberals, but it is a bit sad that the one night of the year when folks like my granddad hope to see a little bit of non-sporting patriotism on their screens, they just get the usual dollop of BBC cultural obsessions like Remain and Pride

  Mr Pickard told the Daily Telegraph: “I don’t want the Proms to be a political platform and certainly not for this debate
 “The flag issue will come back to haunt us every year.  “I don’t want us to say you can’t bring flags in because it might have an association
 “I want us to all come together, and I know that sounds terribly pious.  “I really hope people don’t see it as a moment to express their personal views when it should be a celebration for all of us
” The footage of the Remainers is yet another example of the BBC giving a platform to anti-Brexit voices

 Fiona Bruce who hosted the panel on Thursday evening was bombarded on Twitter with accusations of showing bias, as just one panelist was a Brexiteer
  Just the DUP’s Jeffery Donaldson voted Leave in the 2016 referendum.  The other five panellists all voted Remain
