6166 complaints and OFCOM come out with this:
Ofcom, the communications regulator in the UK, today announced the findings of its investigation into ‘Ukip: The First 100 Days’, Channel 4’s “ground-breaking and provocative fictional documentary set in a fabricated future where UKIP have won the 2015 general election.”
Channel 4 and the BBC both receive dosh from the EU.
OFCOM is “Chaired” by Dame Patricia Hodgson who has held two very high level “Director” posts at the BBC. She has also been the Principal of Newnham.
This “ruling” on the 6,166 complaints about the Channel 4 programme should come as no surprise, hell’s teeth, I complained to the BBC about its disgraceful coverage of the Diamond Jubilee River Pageant. I did it online, ticked the box which demanded “Reply” and I’m still waiting! Their official number of complaints is said to be 5,000.
They are all in it together and it stinks.
