Ex-BBC editor Andrew Marr lambasted for backing Labour

Rishi Sunak grilled on income tax offer by Andrew Marr

Speaking on LBC’s Tonight with Andrew Marr, the host said he was “alarmed” by the number of people underestimating Prime Minister Rishi Sunak. His comments come as Rishi Sunak received a 53 percent disapproval rating, according to recent polls.

Andrew Marr appeared on LBC tonight to state he is “somebody who wants a Labour victory at the next election”.

However, the broadcaster added: “I am alarmed that perhaps labour are underestimating Rishi Sunak.

“And I think the Prime Minister is doing far better than a lot on the centre-left have noticed.”

His comments received a wave of backlash from social media users over the lack of “impartiality”.

British broadcaster Darren Grimes tweeted: “BBC’s former top political broadcaster, Andrew Marr, says he wants a Labour Government, in a shock to absolutely nobody.

Meanwhile, journalist and MEP Martin Daubney added: “The mask slips as Andrew Marr admits he ‘wants a Labour victory at the next election’.

“He can be honest now no longer a BBC employee.

“But we knew he felt like this all along.”
