The BBC were appointed by Westminster as the news Regulator for the Scottish Independence referendum!
As Westminster are entirely opposed to Scottish independence;
1) How can this Regulator of media be impartial and afford equal suffrage in our campaign?
2) How can this Regulator of media be impartial if the leader of the Better Together campaign was the former BBC Chief Executive Officer?
3) The BBC has suppressed the positive side of the campaign and promoted the cause of those against, by presenting a bombardment of negativity towards Scottish independence whilst aiding Westminster's media spin campaign against us.
4) As the Regulator, Westminster's BBC has banned any other news network except the BBC from independently covering the Scottish Independence referendum, so any international coverage has only been a biased drip fed amalgamation of misrepresentation of the truth of the positive campaign.
We are rightly opposed to the BBC acting as the Regulator and there is much evidence to support bias and unfair almost unilateral presentation of Westminster spin in favour of the negative campaign!
This is an outrage and is not in the spirit of the Human Rights Act, to provide equal suffrage in campaigning in democratic governance elections!
We the undersigned hereby demand in the interests of democracy, that the regulator is replaced by an independent Regulator perhaps outside these islands, which has no involvement with either side of the campaign!
