Andrew Neil criticised the corporation over a video posted on the CBBC Twitter feed. The two minute clip was from satirical children’s show Horrible Histories.
It was presented by comedian Nish Kumar who introduced the video with a reference to Britain’s EU departure.
The video features Queen Victoria being shocked to discover goods she enjoys, such as tea and sugar, are not actually produced in Britain.
Mr Neil commented: “This is anti-British drivel of a high order.
“Was any of the licence fee used to produce something purely designed to demean us?”

Critics pointed out it’s unlikely Queen Victoria would have thought either tea or sugar come from the UK.
Sugar was grown in the Caribbean whilst tea originated in China, but was later produced on mass in India.
The video clip has been viewed around a million times, partly because of the controversy it attracted.
In the introduction Mr Kumar comments: “Britain is striking out on its own and leaving Europe.”
