abolish the legislation which allowed foreigners to own/control British media (newspapers / TV / radio), and force them to hand over controlling interest to British owners.

Why is this idea important?

In the last 20 years or more, foreign owners have proved themselves inimical to the British body politic, and have had had a bad effect  on standards of journalism and social attitudes. Systematic lying about the EU is one example; another is the barely concealed fawning over newspaper bosses by some of our politicians. Unfortunately, not all British owners are blameless.

One Reply to “ban foreign ownership of British media”

  1. britain is one of the only democratic countries that allows almost unfettered foreign ownership of its media, it is an insult to the electorate to allow the political influence of these foreign mogals to dictate policy. foreign ownership of the british media should be restricted to 10% as is the case in america, australia,and new zealand
