Offensive racist , classist and corrupt John Sweeny BBC Panorama

The request was refused by British Broadcasting Corporation.

Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

I would like a list of John Sweeny's expenses as I have recently watched a documentary where he is secretly recorded (a method used extensivley by Panorama who I used to trust and he breaks many of the BBC's charter to the British people) saying highly offensive racist remarks against Homosexuals who he 'joked' about the treatment he would give them, talking in Turkish because he thought it was funny and affecting me personally 'scummy Irish' but it was all a 'JOKE'?! Well im not laughing he has on his Twitter account as an Englishman with Irish heritage and a 'bad boy of reporting' yet I am appauled by this and the rest as a forced licence payer as I do not watch BBC nor have live TV in my home not even an outside aerial.

During this he pliyed the 'witness' with alcohol (he has since paid this back as a result but only because he was caught out and tried to lead the witness along unfairly and certainly morally wrong going as far to try and get a 'unwanted sexual advances' where none existed and use evidence not confirmed as Mr Robinson filmed the fake text being sent which is easy to do.

I expect action on this as all BBC's employees are representive of the BBC according to YOUR charter.

What will happen to John Sweeny's employment as many have been fired over less?

Will there be a public broadcasted apology and if so when for the appalling remarks as having an Irish grandparent and he is English is no excuse for these disgusting renarks ?

How much has he had in expenses paid out of mine and the millions of British, Irish, Polish, South African etc etc worldwide viewers and immigrants of which I am one?

What actions will be taken to ensure impartiality as the content is getting more and more left wing bias with Graham Norton is from the same country as me not having many shows where he doesn't make offensive 'Jokes' about the 17 million British people who voted leave the EU or his anti President Trump rhetoric?

Why do I have to pay for BBC when I do not watch its channels?

Will we see unbiased journalism anytime soon?

Why has one of your journalists spoken disgustingly about the working class people of the UK?

Why has one of your journalists described my people of having 'scummy Irish backround's ?

Will you be covering the sculpture outside the main office which was carved according to the documentary a paedophile which the Catholic church has covered or removed work done by him to their credit?

It's all there to see on the platform Youtube and I have lost all faith in the BBC and excuses of their staff and half baked apologises , I'd expect more from the state broadcaster and am bitterly disappointed but under the freedom of information act I request the details in full asap which is my right.

Yours faithfully,

Billy Hume.
