Britain's Ukip demands Swedish TV apology
Sweden's media watchdog has given public broadcaster SVT a rap on the knuckles for labelling Britain's Ukip an "extreme right-wing populist party" and the party has told The Local it now wants a public apology from the broadcaster.
The Swedish Broadcasting Authority (Granskningsnämnden) launched an investigation when a member of the public reported SVT's Aktuellt news programme to the watchdog after hearing comments made about Ukip by a correspondent in Brussels in a section about UK Prime Minister David Cameron's tougher line on immigration.
"How many [immigrants] can be restricted and how many can be blocked? This is a political debate being driven by Ukip, the UK Independence Party, and Cameron now needs to stem the flow from his party to the extreme right-wing populist party, so that's why he is doing this," the reporter said.
