Good to hear Toby doing his totally impartial and unbiased broadcast about Brexit this morning (on behalf of the Remainers) 🙄

Nonsense. The questions posed by Toby are always debating the view of the interviewee; whichever stance is being taken. It’s refreshing as most interviewers have a preset list of questions, don’t listen to the answers, and don’t push further when the answer is clearly not an answer to the actual question.

It’s you that’s talking nonsense, he’s so obviously pro remain it’s embarrassing for someone that claims impartiality.

It wasn’t biased it’s just people hearing what they don’t want to hear.

He may or may not be pro remain, but the BBC certainly is, so when on air he’s got to tow the line to pick up the dollar. He’s very careful to adhere to the BBC narrative on many issues, could you imagine him keeping his position for instance, if he made it known he had confidence in Donald Trump as a president and world leader? No, me neither.

Listening to Toby Foster this morning, I noticed  he approached the two interviews re the Spearmint Rhino issue with that impartial, finely balanced professionalism that has become his trademark.

I know it well, doesn't verbally make it clear who's side he's on but the little tics and reactions make it perfectly clear, if you question him he'll ask what he said that was biased, you don't always need words to convey an opinion, impartial my arris.

No “tics or reactions” with this issue; Interview with rep of organisation that wanted to shut down club - hardly challenged anything she said. agreed with most. Interview with dancers from club, challenged, interrupted, patronised with hardly any attempt to empathise or understand.
