Petition Action

Reform the laws surrounding the showing of parlimentary footage on satirical shows

Additional Information

Recently a clip of parliment was banned from being shown on the Daily Show in the UK; due to the fact that it is illegal to show footage from the House Of Commons on satirical shows. Such unnecessary and irresponsible censorship is a crime in itself and needs to be reformed.
