Nigel Farage UKIP fat cat cartoon

The leader of the United Kingdom Independence Party Nigel Farage, shown here not as his populist face of protest but rather just the propaganda facade for the promotion of fat cat interests and the far right economic policies they support.

The media have been accused of being complicit in his party's rise to prominence and in particular the BBC has been accused of giving them a foot up. He seems to be ever present on the BBC'S DP and it has been claimed (sardonically), that he is on more episodes of Question Time than David Dimbleby and in October 2014 the BBC even produced and broadcast a programme dedicated to him entiteld 'The Farage Factor.' He has also now been invited to take party in the leaders debate in the run up to the 2015 UK General Election, but there are signs that people finally beginning to wake up to what amounts to blatant bias on the part of the BBC and other media sources and petitions are doing to round protesting and demanding the inclusion of the Green Party leader in the deabtes too.
