The political scrutiny group

This petition has since expired and has now turned into a political scrutiny group.

 

On March 16th 2015 the government approved broadcast media regulator Ofcom Confirmed that the United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP) Was a major political party

The BBC announced today a series of debates which would take place in the run up to the General Election on May 7th, this includes a "special" Question Time episode presented by David Dimbleby on 30th April

Although the BBC have invited UKIP to other programs they have not included UKIP' in a "special" question time episode airing on 30th April opting only to invite Nick Clegg, Ed Miliband and David Cameron.This is a completely unjustified decision that gives the 3 other political parties an upper hand against UKIP and is a betrayal to British voters. UKIP won the 2014 European elections this alone proves that the British Public believe in what UKIP stands for, the BBC are turning a blind eye to this and of  Ofcom's confirmation that UKIP is a major political party.

I urge you to sign this petition if you too believe that the BBC's actions are wholly unacceptable and that UKIP should be invited to this "special" Question Time episode and any other programming format where Nick Clegg, Ed Miliband and David Cameron are invited.

Thank you once again for taking the time read and sign this petition.

*It is worth bearing in mind that this petition represents the personal views I as a UKIP supporter have and may or may not be those that UKIP the political party have.
