He continued: "[Channel 4] can just spout their views and don't actually have to go out and defend them in elections, which we do."
In the spirit of fair play perhaps Channel 4 should run similar dramas surrounding each political party. With David Cameron running scared of televised debates this may be the closest the electorate gets to debate.
Channel 4 added: "Channel 4 has a role to encourage debate and engage viewers in political issues. "The schedule will include a broad range of programming in the build-up to the election including news and current affairs investigations, a party leader debate and a major new political drama on the formation of the coalition government."
Ofcom will now investigate the complaints, most about UKIP being portrayed in a bad light, and decide if it should take action.
But either way the cat is out of the bag and "UKIP: The First 100 Days" will have hit the mark.
"Plans are already under way to make it illegal to smoke when children are in the car after MPs backed a ban raising the question if mothers who deliberately harm their unborn baby by drinking should also be prosecuted."
A few thoughts.
What will follow? Sterilisation of alcoholic women? Imprisonment of pregnant boozers to stop them drinking? Prosecution if you eat unhealthily during pregnancy? Of course, not that one, as government cuts have directly led to that in many cases.
The ideas may sound sensible but how to tackle the problems needs a great deal of thought. Any changes need to be workable and surely education must come first?
Will middle-class women who continue to enjoy a glass or two of wine whilst pregnant also face prosecution? Again we ask what is excessive drinking?
But after all that is said excessive drinking during pregnancy can lead to: "Glenn, 15, was born with FAS after his birth mother drank excessively during pregnancy. He has the mental age of a four-year-old, as well as physical disabilities which affect his movement and vision. He has to wear nappies and is fed through a tube."
