Statement on Mayor’s EastEnders cameo

Ahead of Boris Johnson’s appearance on EastEnders this evening, Murad Qureshi, a Labour member of the London Assembly, said today:

"The BBC should always be even-handed and consistent when dealing with political figures, not turning down some and promoting others. It’s a coup for Boris, being portrayed as pretty straight guy on such a popular show, but I would question whether it’s in the BBC’s remit to influence the public’s perception in this way."
