BBC accused of defaming Prince Harry

To accuse the hugely popular Prince Harry of being a drug addict shows how far out of touch the BBC is.  Although the monarchy is a great source of satisfaction to most Brits, the BBC obviously does not like the monarchy at all.  Their Leftishness overcomes their Britishness

The Prince

The BBC has been accused of defaming Prince Harry after a presenter read a joke that claimed he snorts cocaine.  Jo Brand made the comment about the fourth in line to the throne on Have I Got News For You on Friday.

Discussing the godparents named at the christening of Prince George, the comedian said: 'George's godparents include Hugh van Cutsem - I presume that's a nickname as in Hugh van cuts 'em and Harry then snorts 'em.'

Panellist Paul Merton was seen gaping at the guest presenter, while co-creator Ian Hislop balked: 'Have we lost the lawyers?'

The corporation is now under fire for permitting the joke to be written for the pre-recorded show - and leaving it in after editing.

The presenter, a member of anti-monarchist group Republic, told the Sunday Telegraph: 'I didn’t write it. I read it out from the autocue. I thought it was funny. I don’t really understand what the fuss is about.

The Prince, a captain with the Army Air Corps who has served on two tours to Afghanistan, has previously confessed to smoking cannabis when he was 16 with older friends in the family's Gloucestershire home.  But this is the first and only time he has been accused of taking class A drugs.

A Clarence House spokesman told MailOnline: 'We won't be making a comment on that. We wouldn't comment on something like that.'

Anyone who looks like Jo Brand should not be making derogatory comments about anyone.
