Lib Dems Refer UKIP PPB to Ofcom

The Liberal Democrats have referred UKIP's latest party political broadcast, which sought to demonise national and religious identities to Ofcom.

The party's Equalities Spokesperson, Baroness Meral Hussein-Ece, who is the only British parliamentarian of Turkish descent said;
“This is stomach turning, dog-whistle politics demonising an entire country and all its people. The large Turkish community in the UK has made an enormous economic and social contribution over many decades. They play a vital and vibrant role in our society and shouldn’t be subject to Nigel Farage’s nasty politics.”
