THE BBC has been criticised for letting a left-wing comedian brand Rishi Sunak a “mendacious narcissistic sociopath” on air.
Ben Elton launched his blistering assault on Sunday with Kuenssberg following an interview the Prime Minister.
The Monty Python writer, and long-time Labour backer, slammed Mr Sunak for an “extraordinary Orwellian, meaningless, evasive word salad”.
He added: “I sort of believed maybe he’s kind of a bit more decent, and it turns out, he’s as much of a mendacious, narcissistic sociopath as his previous boss.”
Last night, Tories attacked the public-funded broadcaster for having the political guest appear on their flagship show.
MP Mark Jenkinson said: “The BBC seem completely unable to get this right due to their systemic bias.
“Whatever possessed them to become a soapbox for another celebrity lefty luvvie.”
This followed an argument over Joe Lycett who mocked Liz Truss in a TV show before she was made PM.
