Wally of the Week: Johnny Irwin

‘Escape to the Country’ presenter helps house hunting paedophile

On Wednesday afternoon, the BBC screened an episode of Escape to the Country featuring a couple named Darren and Kasia Robinson. They neglected to mention the real reason behind the pair’s desire to move to rural Wales.

Escape to the Country’s premise is to find rural homes for those who take part and of why he and his wife wished to move to relocate, Mr Robinson commented:

 

“London seems to have got a little bit more unpleasant. So we think the time is right to enjoy the wilds of the countryside”.

 

The audience of the show, which was filmed in May 2013, however, did not know the truth behind why Mr Robinson was so keen to “escape” to set up an alpaca farm. In fact, it now transpires, the south-east Londoner had been charged with eight counts of abusing a child and one of inciting a child to engage in sexual activity a year earlier in 2012 and he was plainly looking to move to somewhere where his crimes weren’t known. Equally, just weeks after filming finished, Robinson received a 30-month sentence for these crimes.

Jonnie Irwin, the show’s presenter, comes across as a perfectly pleasant chap but we have to make him our Wally of the Week as still now – as of 6.30pm on the 14th September 2013 – on his Twitter page is a retweet of a BBC Wales tweet about the episode featuring Mr and Mrs Robinson. In it, they ask:

 

“Which of Wales’ rarest species is @jonnieirwin helping to save today?”

 

Now what could that have been? A paedophile and his wife perhaps? In the wake of the Savile scandal, one would have thought both Mr Irwin and the BBC would have learned. Shame on them for not checking the true background of this couple before making a programme about them.
