Complaint to Ofcom

I have just submitted a complaint to OFCOM about the way the Conservatives abused their privilege in tonight’s Party Election Broadcast.

“This was a European Election Broadcast but the Conservatives failed to address any European Issues. The entire Broadcast was devoted to Westminster and English Local Government issues, attacking Gordon Brown and calling for a UK Parliamentary Election.

These Election Broadcasts are given to the parties to inform the public about their policies and why we should vote for them in the appropriate election. In this case Elections to the European Parliament in June.

My complaint is that the Conservative Party used the airtime for another purpose, therefore abusing their privilege.”

Watch this space for their response.

  • Jarvis Cocker – I like this – stick with it and watch Jarvis Cocker assemble his name in a graphic style
  • Internet Archive – More archive stuff – could this become an obsession?
  • BBC Archive – This is a treasure trove. I could spend hours in this corner of the BBC website, listening to recordings of programmes that reveal our national heritage. The first hand account of a senior officer on board the Titanic on the night she sank is riveting. The archive also includes internal documents, letters and notes. Fascinating stuff.
