Broadcaster John Humphrys savages bias at the BBC as he accuses the 'Kremlin' style corporation of being out of touch - just one day after stepping down from the Today show
In an explosive memoir serialised from today in the Daily Mail, Remain-voting Humphrys (top outside Broadcasting House in London after his final programme) pulls no punches after decades of being constrained by rules that stop journalists expressing opinions. The 76-year-old, who spent 33 years on Radio 4's flagship news show Today, says he is now free of 'the BBC Thought Police' which has 'tried to mould the nation into its own liberal-Left image' (bottom-right, the BBC's director-general Lord Tony Hall). He says its bosses 'badly failed' to read the nation's mood on Europe and 'simply could not grasp' why anyone voted Leave (bottom-left, anti-Brexit protesters earlier this year). Having left school at 15, he says he felt an outsider at the BBC 'rather like the junior butler trying to blag a seat at his lordship's dining table in Downton Abbey'. But despite his searing criticism of an organisation he has served since 1967, Humphrys says he is in 'no doubt whatsoever that the BBC is a tremendous and irreplaceable force for good'.
Scotland Yard say they investigated allegations Prince Andrew 'had sex with Virginia Roberts aged 17 in Ghislaine Maxwell's bathroom' and confirm 'no further action is being taken'
Virginia Roberts claimed she had sex with the Duke of York in 2001 in Ghislaine Maxwell's London townhouse after the royal gave her vodka at a nightclub. Roberts, who is now Virginia Giuffre, 35, aired the claim on NBC's Dateline that she was woken up by Ghislane and told 'you're gonna meet a prince today' before Andrew gave her alcohol in the VIP section of Club Tramp. In previously reported court documents, she claimed they went back to Ghislaine's townhouse where she and Prince Andrew engaged in 'foreplay' in the bath and then had sex in the bedroom where she was sleeping. MailOnline approached the Met Police following Ms Roberts' revelations in a teaser for her TV interview. A spokesperson said: 'As we have previously said, the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) did receive an allegation of non-recent trafficking for sexual exploitation. Having closely examined the available evidence, the decision was made that this would not progress to a full investigation.' Prince Andrew has repeatedly and vehemently denied Giuffre's accusations, calling them 'false' and 'without foundation' and saying 'any suggestion of impropriety with under-age minors is 'categorically untrue'.

The Terrier unmuzzled: Days after leaving his beloved BBC, Radio 4's John Humphrys lambasts the corporation's liberal bias, craven PC culture and slavish support for the EU in his explosive new book
JOHN HUMPHRYS: Now that I've finally taken the decision to retire from Today, this is the first time in half a century that I have been able to write a single sentence for publication without the tiniest fear, somewhere in the back of my mind, that the BBC might not approve (Humphrys is pictured right during his final broadcast on Thursday, and left in 1987). The rules are perfectly clear. If you are employed by the BBC as a journalist, you have to submit to a higher authority everything you write for publication. Fair enough. If there were no rules we could cheerfully take the BBC shilling and earn a few more by expressing our own opinions on whatever subject we chose. If that meant stepping over the line between analysis and opinion . . . so be it. For all its weaknesses, the BBC has been building and retaining trust for the best part of a century. It could not continue to do that if the people who work for it are publicly allowed to fire off political opinions of their own whenever it takes their fancy (Humphrys is pictured inset during a Today programme broadcast).

It said the UK 'confirmed that the proposed concepts do not amount to legally operational solutions and would have to be developed during the transition period'.
