No manifesto, no elected politicians, no transparency – but gets a chair on BBCQT
BBC Question Time has been criticised for inviting Nigel Farage to speak on tonight’s show.
The Brexit party leader will join Fiona Bruce for a debate in Northampton as UK political parties gear up for the European Parliament elections at the end of the month.
Work and Pensions Secretary Amber Rudd, Shadow Economic Minister Jonathan Reynolds and Anna Soubry MP will also be participating in the discussion.
But despite having no manifesto, no MEPs, no MPs and no transparency with donations, so too will Nigel Farage.
Tonight will mark no less than 33 appearances on the show for the prominent Brexiteer, who has bemoaned the lack of publicity given to his party by the BBC on his campaign trail.
This week the former UKIPer claimed that a no deal Brexit is what people voted for – even though that was never on the ballot paper.
He also refuses to publish any policies before the election and won’t say who’s funding him.
Yet he gets a chair on BBCQT – go figure!
