Just been dropped from @bbcbigquestions tomorrow. Booked to talk about intolerance & how 'hate' is used to silence people. Now I'm silenced. Producer 'didn't know why' but I told her. BBC remove gender critical voices from debate upon request. My court tweets worked against me.
I had already told the researcher that this would happen and she confirmed that 'Yes the BBC do remove GC voices if other guest refuses to appear with them'. I say remove the other guest not the one who is willing to talk.
BBC quote: 'We talk to lots of people about potentially appearing on the programme...' This was no 'potential'. They even forgot to cancel the cab they booked for me. He was left at Manchester Piccadilly. I hope they remembered to cancel the hotel room. dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6…
Quote: "BBC sources denied that a researcher had claimed guests were bumped off the programme if other guests complained."
I would be happy to have a public conversation with the researcher involved, I've nothing to hide. She confirmed it happens.
When she first approached me to appear, we had a research chat lasting about 20/30 mins including the issue of people being wrongly called transphobic for being gender critical and I said to her about @AskNic being removed for Rachel McKinnon on BBC Five Live.
And she said 'yes it happens because the other guest will refuse to appear'. And I said - very clearly to her - that it was wrong and that was why this debate was being shut down and not heard. And she agreed. That conversation happened.
TBC: I'm happy there's at least one GC speaker on the show today. I know what took place and so do the people involved. I believe I was cancelled because of a concern about what I may say re: transgender children's charity, Mermaids and its impact on children & free speech.
