Lib Dems considers legal action to exclude TV debate | Policy

Liberal Democrats revealed that they "are considering bringing a lawsuit" following Jo Swinson's exclusion from the BBC elections debate between Boris Johnson and Jeremy Corbyn.

The broadcaster announced Friday the organization of a traditional debate between the Prime Minister and the Labor Party leader on December 6.

Earlier this week, Swinson announced that his party would take legal action if ITV did not include it in the debate of its own leaders, scheduled for Nov. 19.

Layla Moran, spokeswoman for Liberal Dems Education and candidate for Oxford West and Abingdon, said it was essential that the television debates have a voice.

She told Sky News: "We are the largest and most solid party on the UK market and we are the only party that can challenge the Labor Party and the Conservatives on this issue.

"We are discussing with the lawyers what we are going to do with the debate on ITV and we are also considering prosecution in the BBC court."

Moran added that it was "entirely possible" for Swinson to be prime minister.

In the first-past-the-post system, the tactical vote is to vote for a party that you would not normally support to prevent another party from winning. For example, in a constituency where the result is usually tight between a party you do not like and a party you do not like a bit, and the party you support usually ranks third and There is no chance of winning, you can choose to give your vote to the majority. to party you dislike a little. This avoids "wasting" your vote on a party that can not win the seat and increase the chances of losing the party you do not like most.

"I think in this election – and no one says that it's not a huge mountain to climb, no one claims that it is not – but what we've seen, it's not the same thing. is that among Europeans, a different electoral system, I understand it. but we voted higher than the Conservatives and the Labor Party for the first time in 100 years.

"Something is happening in British politics at the moment, it's showing up in the last few months, anything is possible."

These comments come after reports that the liberals would provide parents who work 35 hours of free childcare a week from the day their baby is 9 months old, while the Labor Party said it would provide 30 hours of free childcare per week to each child from the age of 3 years. two.

Under the current rules, three-year-olds are entitled to 15 hours of free day care per week. The majority of working families are entitled to 30 hours and low – income parents receive additional support from the age of two.
