Five independent MEP candidates for London were ignored by the mainstream press and the BBC yesterday at their ‘no press’ press conference.
The conference in Kings Cross St Pancras, London’s Eurostar gateway to Europe, was designed to draw attention to the fact that the mainstream media have completely ignored independent candidates in the European elections.
The media’s response demomstrates their point.
Gene Alcantara, Haroon Saad, Sohale Rahman and Jan Jananayagam discuss their ideas and main issues on Europe, immigration and London.
The lack of airtime and press coverage confirms that, despite the public anger against the main party politicians, independents and small parties have virtually no chance of breaking their stranglehold on power.
All the candidates urge people to use their vote in the European elections this Thursday 4 June.
