THE BBC has, for the THIRD time in two days, cut off its coverage of a key Brexit debate just as the SNP's Ian Blackford stood up to speak.

Despite MPs voting emphatically to reject a no-deal Brexit, Prime Minister Theresa May told the House of Commons that it still remains the default option if no deal was reached.

The BBC showed Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn's response in full, but just as Blackford was preparing to speak, the broadcaster cut back to the studio and presenter Andrew Neil.

He then went on to interview former Ukip leader Nigel Farage.

This is the third time in two days that the BBC has cut off their coverage just as the SNP were preparing to respond to the Prime Minister.

Concerning the speeches last night, a  BBC Spokesperson told us: “Mr Blackford’s speech was broadcast in full on BBC Parliament and a broad range of voices appeared on our coverage across various platforms throughout the day - including Stephen Gethins on the BBC News Channel - in what was a fast paced breaking news story”.

The SNP are Westminster's third biggest party, and are the party of government in Scotland.

Keith Brown, The SNP’s Depute Leader, told us earlier: “The BBC routinely and deliberately ignores the SNP. It is ridiculous that Ian Blackford is treated this way.

“The corporation’s obsession with the Westminster bubble means they continually and consistently marginalise Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

“It’s no wonder BBC bosses are under scrutiny over growing concerns about news impartiality and whether audiences can trust the corporation.”

“The time for apologies is over, the BBC needs root and branch reform of its news operation and we welcome Ofcom’s intervention.”
