This petition was rejected

The Government e-Petitions Team gave the following reason:

This is a matter for the BBC and there is no provision for the Government to intervene in such matters.

The BBC's governing instruments, the Royal Charter and Agreement, place broad obligations on the Corporation in respect of its television, radio and online services, and its objectives, programme content and standards. Within this framework detailed decisions on website content are matters for the BBC, reflecting its editorial independence
