    It’s about time somebody start talking about the WHO instead of the WHAT. Thanks BBC. Although I prefer the term Fake News Operator instead. Check out my short video on the real problem of fake news: https://youtu.be/1_TKYj31-SM

    Oh the insider! Like the teacher (who turns out to be a Labour party activist) who saw Dominic Cummins in Durham and went home and searched the number plate to check it was him (as we can all apparantly do that)! Or the rumours! Like all the the other sightings of Mr Cummins from around the country that turned out to be untrue – yet the BBC still reported them. Is that the kind of fake news you mean BBC? Or is it that you prefer to call fake news anything that is against yours and the Guardian's politics and vision for the world?

    BBC are the fake news Bill Gates foundation donated over 40million see https://www.mintpressnews.com/super-rich-see-wealth-rise-282-billion-three-weeks-coronavirus/267027/ I suggest folk do there own research to find the truth. They cover up Jimmy Savile for years and other Pedophilia in there establishment.
