Now UKIP may sue BBC

April 29, 2010

It seems that election fever is grabbing the attention of the public more than ever and the leaders’ debates have had a lot to do with it.

The success of these live debates has given the political make up of the country a different look and yet the parties left out on the sidelines are not happy.

The UK Independence Party is threatening the BBC with legal action if its leader, Lord Pearson of Rannoch, is not allowed to take part in the debate.

The Lord has written to the BBC’s Director General, Mark Thompson, claiming that the corporation is in breach of its election coverage guidelines by not giving UKIP an equal standing to the other parties.

The final Leaders Debate of the 2010 General Election will take place tonight at 8.30pm on BBC1.
