The BBC are back to their trick of calling election winners of whom they don't approve 'populist'. Their report on the Italian general election here http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-43272700 refers to populists.
Remind me, did the BBC call Tony Blair a populist in 1997? How about Barack Hussein Obama in 2007? Of course not, they were people who the BBC supported/hero worshipped at the time. Populist is a term that the BBC use to denigrate those election winners who do not hold the correct opinions.
