BBC's Laura Kuenssberg to get 'bodyguards to protect her from Labour hate mob'
THE BBC has hired a team of bodyguards to protect politics editor Laura Kuenssberg from vile left-wing trolls at the Labour Party conference, it is claimed. A source at the corporation told The Sun: “Laura is a well-known public figure. “She and her team will be covering events with big crowds where there can be hostility, so we want to ensure adequate precautions are taken.”It is at least the second time the corporation has needed to draft in extra security to keep the high-profile reporter safe. During the summer’s election, the BBC reportedly funded a team to look after her during public events.An online petition was even setup calling for the BBC political editor to be fired from her role at the broadcaster gathered 35,000 signatures.It was taken down by executives at 38 Degrees, the website that hosted the poll, over claims it had been “hijacked, and used as a focal point for sexist and hateful abuse”.During the EU referendum, she was hissed by a crowd when she asked Mr Corbyn about workers’ rights. Deputy leader Tom Watson said he was “embarrassed” by their behaviour.

Labour MP Yvette Cooper is also among those who has slammed her party’s supporters for their behaviour.She said: “Frankly I am sick to death of the vitriol poured out from all sides towards Laura Kuenssberg.“It is her job to ask difficult questions. It is her job to be sceptical about everything we say. Nothing justifies the personal vitriol or the misogyny.”Earlier this month, BBC chairman Sir David Clementi also slammed the treatment of journalists like Ms Kuenssberg, accusing her abusers of misogyny. He said: “I have become increasingly aware of the abuse that some of them – particularly female journalists – are subject to, on an almost daily basis.“It also occurs in plain sight, at press conferences and political gatherings on all sides.“Politicians cannot stand by and watch – they must confront any abuse, and make it clear that it is intolerable.”A BBC spokesman said: “We do not comment on security issues.”. 00FastNews.
