Lib Dems begin legal challenge against BBC for Swinson exclusion


The Liberal Democrats have instructed a legal team to write to the BBC in response to the public service broadcaster excluding Jo Swinson from their election ‘leaders’ debate’.

In the letter, the party's lawyers warn that the exclusion of one of the leaders of the three main UK-wide national parties is "clearly unlawful". 
 
President of the Liberal Democrats, Sal Brinton, has said “voters of this country deserve to hear from a Remainer on the debate stage, not just from the two men who want to deliver Brexit.” 

The Liberal Democrats have already filed proceedings at the High Court for a judicial review of ITV's decision to exclude remain from their General Election debate.
