BBC Outrage against Democracy
The following was posted on my blog Ironies Too earlier. It should be of interest to UKIP members as well so is repeated here:-

At 1035 pm tomorrow evening the BBC 1 London TV station will broadcast a programme hosted by Andrew Neil where an audience of Londoners will put their questions to three of the London Mayoral candidates - Boris Johnson, Ken Livingstone and Brian Paddick in a special debate.

There are ten properly registered candidates for the post of London Mayor and it is absolutely unacceptable that the other seven candidates should be excluded from any such publicly funded forum. See the full candidate list from the Electoral Commission site linked here.

The BBC have for years suppressed free democratic debate in the country through their abitrary allocation of Party Political Broadcasts as I learnt first hand when representing Veritas in seeking a fair hearing in the run-up to the last General Election campaign - notably, following which election, the funding of the BBC for many years ahead was scheduled for review.

All the tired old arguments used by the BBC to keep their particular paymasters in power cannot be trotted out for an election of a London Mayor. Each candidate should be allowed to stand on their merits, why else would first or second choice selections be permitted? There is no history of votes stretching back centuries allowing their normally spurious arguments to be put forth!

Andrew Neil should be thoroughly ashamed of himself for agreeing to host such a Goebbels style propagandafest for the continuing anti-democratic three-party allocation of publicly funded offices.

Contact Mr Neil and/or the BBC direct to protest at this latest outrage, which follows months of silence by the BBC on the democracy destroying Lisbon Treaty on which two parties' candidates represented in this debate have clearly reneged on election manifesto promises.
