In support of This Blog’s suggestion that Nigel Farage avoided appearing on the BBC’s Question Time because he feared being grilled over his own party political broadcast more than he relished the chance of grilling the Tories over their EU ‘renegotiation’, have a look at this:
Ofcom is considering more than 30 complaints about Ukip’s party political broadcast on ITV and the BBC in relation to racial offence, Islamophobia and bias against Turkey.
The regulator said it was looking at whether to launch an investigation into the four-minute broadcast on Wednesday night which urged people to vote to exit the EU because Turkey could join. The broadcast highlighted Turkey’s Muslim population and claimed that up to 15 million Turkish citizens could migrate.
One of the complaints comes from the Lib Dems, who accuse Nigel Farage’s party of inciting racial and religious hatred as well as making factual inaccuracies.
