I complained to OFCOM about the Conservative Party’s Euro Election broadcast. They have replied by saying that it’s up to the Conservative Party how they campaign and what they say in their broadcasts. At what point would a campaign be unacceptable I wonder?
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.
