Example of a loony left eternal student. 'Give us our country back'
to its staff to remain impartial came too late for Mimi Kempton -Stewart,
the assistant politics editor of the Today programme. Here are some of her thoughts
on yesterday' election, including that "it'd be nice" if
"every UKIP voter were just to disappear forever or die'
‘UKIP are awful, really terrible, I can't wait until this darned election is over so we can all be rid of them on our screens and airwaves!’
‘Honestly, if every UKIP voter were Just to disappear forever or die, the world would be a better place. That's my view, anyway.’
‘To me the word "UKIP" sounds like a dog being sick. Like their politics! Anyway, I'm off back to work, at my Job at the
‘and I didn't say 'should' die, I Just said it'd be nice if they did, working for the
mean I can't have views.’
Kempton-Stewart, a former Guardian Student Media digital journalist of the year,has apologised and deleted another tweet, though the others remain up:
‘Apologies for my previous deleted tweet on UKIP. The use of the phrase "drowned in acid" was inappropriate as a
BBC employee and I regret
'Charming Should Mimi really be anywhere
near determining the output on "Today",the nation's
agenda setting radio show?' Asks Guido.

I'm sure it can be done, but all politicians should be able to recognise minority lobbying anyway surely?
Majorities should set agendas. It can't be hard to identify a minority agenda setter surely? It's far too easy for minorities to change things in the
. They should
really be made to work harder to win over the
majority in a democracy. And let's have more than models and theory if vast
costly changes to our lives are being proposed too. UK
That's what UKIP would say and the voters are getting to know it too. So let's see her sacked or moved to harmless post if you want to begin to win the nation’s hearts and minds Mr Cameron.
