Former BBC editor Robert Peston has admitted that the publicly-funded corporation “got it wrong” on immigration and was “patronising” towards voters who wanted to control it.

The 58-year-old journalist, who hosts ITV’s midweek political programme Peston and serves as the broadcaster’s political editor, made his confession in comments to the Cheltenham Literature Festival reported by the Daily Mail.

“For too long, people like me had a particular view of the benefits of globalisation and we simply neglected the effect it was having on millions of our citizens,” Peston, who worked at the BBC for nine years, admitted.

“[P]eople like me focused too much on the economic benefits in terms of the rates we were growing, and not enough on the experience of communities who were changing rapidly as a result.

“In a way, we were slightly patronising. People like me were basically saying ‘don’t you know this is making the country richer?’ In fact, it was also dislocating hundreds of thousands to millions of lives, and those people’s lives had been radically changed by immigration.”
