BBC favourite Brian Cox wanted ban on “nonsense” term “British people”

BBC presenter, Professor Brian Cox once called for a ban on the term “the British people” whilst criticising the government. Cox labelled the terms “nonsense”, deriding it as “inflammatory and divisive” as well as “vacuous”.

The invective was uncovered by the Express and further highlights the rampant bias against traditional British values at the BBC.

In an upcoming episode of her podcast, BBC presenter Samira Ahmed says she is “haunted” by the bogus claim she assisted the rise of UKIP under Nigel Farage by giving the party’s former leader so much airtime.

Last month, BBC Breakfast presenters, Charlie Stayt and Naga Munchetty were caught on live television sniggering at Housing Secretary Robert Jenrick for having a Union flag stationed proudly in his office.

Munchetty subsequently apologised after it emerged that she had liked a number of tweets insulting the display of the national flag, under the horrible hashtag #flagshaggers, which woke warriors have been delighting in.

At the beginning of this month it was announced beloved 70s sitcom, Some Mothers Do ‘Ave ‘Em was placed under investigation for a scene involving the word “poof”.

Physicist Cox has established himself as one of the media’s most famous scientists after presenting a host of television programmes such as Planets, Wonders of the Universe and Wonders of Life. He currently presents The Infinite Monkey Cage on Radio 4.


Last year, Cox responded to a tweet from Home Secretary Priti Patel which called for French co-operation on the issue of returning illegal migrants back to France.

Cox responded: “I’m so sick of this ‘The British People’ nonsense. It’s inflammatory and divisive and also errant vacuous nonsense with no meaning in a multi-party democracy. The phrase should be banned from political discourse.”

One social media user responded to the tweet noting that Cox has in the past tweeted the term “European Citizens”.

“I am sick of these silly tweets. What is divisive and wrong about saying British people but to quote European citizens that’s fine,” the observant individual posted.

Cox often takes to Twitter to vent about his frustrations with Brexit, which was democratically voted for by the British people (yes those people) calling for it to be “shelved” for an “indefinite period” in March 2020 in a tweet.

The tweet read: “Brexit is a self-indulgence from another age. It should be shelved for an indefinite period until we have dealt with the long-term economic and social fall out of COVID-19. There can be no justification for imposing a second, voluntary shock on the country in early 2021.”

At the time of the tweet, Britain had already left the EU.
