Electoral Issue - Ukip First 100 Days Drama?

Recommended Posts

http://www.channel4.com/programmes/ukip-the-first-100-days

I've just seen an advert for this.

Am pretty shocked it's allowed by the electoral commission -

"A ground-breaking and provocative fictional documentary, from the makers of Cyberbully, set in a fabricated future where UKIP have won the 2015 general election and Nigel Farage is Prime Minister"

If it's bad for UKIP then can they sue? And if it's good for UKIP can the rest of the political parties sue?

Not til end of march, but I think expenses now can be counted in some way. Not entirely sure of the date for that but I think the late delivery of local labours Christmas cards might have pushed their budget into the wrong date section.

If somene made a film aout how awful labour are would that be allowed?

A "chilling real time thriller", looks like blatant hatchet job to me.

So blatant I hope they go well into farce territory! Maybe they'll dust this off...

A Ukip government would lead to riots in the streets and the loss of millions of jobs after the UK leaves the EU, according to Channel 4 docudrama screening tomorrow.

Ukip: The First 100 Days mixes archive footage with scripted scenes featuring actress Priyanga Burford playing the part of the party's only Asian woman MP.

Her character, elected for Romford in an imagined landslide that puts Nigel Farage in Number 10, is left grappling with her conscience as the new government brings in tough anti-immigration raids and withdraws from Brussels.

Oh no, the horror! To a lot of people this would be sweet relief! :D

It'll either be the death of them or the making.

Either way TV shouldn't influence elections like this.

I put a complaint in... CH4 suck ballzz.

Description (please use 1500 characters or less):

Goebbels would have been proud of this. UKIP isn't racist, has no ties to the far right, or the EDL (who isn't a far right party). I feel this is defamation of everybody in the UKIP party by Channel 4. The showing of UKIP supporters as racist and the Immigration officer (who was also shown as being an ex solider) as a law breaking thug. Is outrageous. The fact of showing this one sided propaganda so close to the election is a mute point. But I had to make it. These people should never be let anywhere near a camera again. Disgusting!

Kippers getting on their high-horse for a situation that won't happen...

Making the decision to air such an attack on one political party at this time is very questionable.

Didn't really have any foundation endlessly featuring border control raids and a weak mp.... could've have been any party really....except the greens who would be delivering their passports to them :)

Glad you mentioned them - can you imagine what an analogous docudrama on the Greens' first 100 days of government would look like!!!

Having had an interest in WW2 for a long time, I used to find the propaganda they used back in the 30s and 40s to be quite amusing. I remember wondering how people could be taken in by it.

Nowadays, ofc, I'm a bit more familiar with propaganda and how it works.
