Lack of coverage regarding the Rolling Thunder protest in support of Soldier F.

The request was refused by British Broadcasting Corporation.

Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

Please can you explain why a lawful demonstration, on 12th April 2019, involving over 7000 biker veterans from HM Armed Forces from all across the UK, bringing the capital's roads to a virtual standstill, was not reported on, especially considering that another demonstration 4 days later involving significantly fewer people, was given full national coverage?

Yours faithfully,

GD Cooper

Apparently my request was denied on the grounds that we're the BBC and we don't have to answer to you, even though you pay our salaries.
