Nigel Farage proven right again, BBC audience was loaded with far-left voters
[link to www.dailymail.co.uk]

The BBC filled more than half its election TV debate audience with left-leaning voters, some of whom were brought in from Scotland and Wales, it emerged last night.

The audience at the filming of Thursday night’s debate in Westminster repeatedly cheered calls for more public spending and strong defences of immigration.

When Ukip leader Nigel Farage interjected and said they were prejudiced, ‘even by the Left-wing standards of the BBC’, the audience only booed him further.

David Dimbleby, who hosted Thursday night’s debate between the Labour, Ukip, Green, SNP and Plaid Cymru leaders, pointed out that the audience had not been selected by the BBC, but by a ‘reputable polling organisation’, later to be revealed to be ICM.

The BBC initially refused to disclose the political make-up of the audience but eventually released figures late yesterday. Of the 200-strong audience, about 58 were Conservative or Ukip supporters while about 102 backed left-leaning parties – Labour, the Lib Dems, SNP, Plaid Cymru or the SNP. The rest – 40 – described themselves as undecided.

Loved it when he more or less told the audience he didn't give a shit about what they thought because the real audience was the viewers. That went down well with the leftie twats.
