Another BBC 'mistake'

Bishop Hill in BBC

I was just listening to the BBC coverage of the Norwich by-election on Radio 4. The reporter was talking about Labour holding on to second place, "ahead of the LibDems and the Greens".

The problem with this is that UKIP were in fourth place, 600 votes ahead of the Greens.

Can't mention UKIP on primetime, can we?

I notice that UKIP are complaining that the BBC froze them out in favour of the Greens during the run up to the election too. There's a clear pattern emerging isn't there?

Daniel Hannan has noticed this too and is calling for people to join the boycott of the licence fee.
