While views have been flying back and forth regarding the validity of James Mcgrath’s sacking, the ex-aide has been quietly consulting his lawyers. Pandora at the Independent reports that letters have been sent to the BBC, demanding an apology after their misquoting.
Originally the BBC quoted McGrath as saying to Marc Wordsworth that “black people who didn’t like it here could go home”, when what he did in fact say was “let them go if they don’t like it here”, in response to a question regarding the claims that the mayoral election would provoke the emigration of black Londoners to the West Indies.
The BBC have admitted that they “have received a letter from James McGrath’s solicitors and we are currently looking into the matter“.
Methinks that Boris will not escape quite as easily as ‘he’ may have wished.
