UKIP States The Obvious – Usual Suspects Outraged

Ofcom considers investigation into Ukip broadcast after 31 complaints

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.
