Socialist Equality Party's Chris Marsden on BBC bias

A European election candidate claimed his only BBC TV interview ahead of the 22 May polls "demonstrated bias" and appeared to suggest socialists were in favour of persecuting journalists.

Chris Marsden from the Socialist Equality Party was referring to a Citizen Smith reference at the end of his Daily Politics appearance on 21 May with Giles Dilnot.

He later spoke to Jo Coburn about his party's policies, and its bid to represent the working class. And he said of his earlier interview: "Your viewers deserve better".
