BBC Smear Of Deaf Tory MP Goes Viral

VIDEO [CC] - BBC apologises after suggesting partially Deaf Tory MP had fallen asleep.

Pictures from BBC Parliament of Elmet & Rothwell MP Alec Shelbrooke began circulating on Twitter, prompting the BBC Newsbeat account to tweet on Tuesday morning that the image of the MP “resting his eyes is going viral”.
