details of how many claims of BBC bias were formally submitted and the summary of how many were upheld

The request was refused by British Broadcasting Corporation.

Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

During the current Local Election and more-so thru the General Election Campaign I have been astounded by skewed right wing bias your organisation has shown whilst beating the drum about your apparent impartiality.

I am not looking for a stock response on how professional and "impartial" your journalists are; what I would like to receive you is a summary of

1. How many complaints on BBC bias were raised during

a) The Scottish independence referendum
b) The 2015 General Election campaign
c) The Brexit referendum
d) The 2017 Local and General election campaigns

2. How many of these complaints were upheld

3. For any complaints that were upheld, what action was taken to address the complaint

Yours faithfully,

Tony Donnelly
