BBC Misinformation or just sloppy researchers

BBC have been quick to advertise their Election 2010 website now the election has been officiallly called. It's a pity that the information they put up about UKIP policy on Afghanistan & Defence is wrong. They claim that UKIP "would withdraw from NATO" yet the UKIP Defence Policy clearly states

"UKIP’s Defence Vision recommendations:

To defend our national interests, maintain the NATO alliance, support our traditional partners. To disentangle our forces from the EU To keep our independence by retaining – always – ultimate command and control over our national forces"

You can read the full policy at

Is this deliberate BBC disinformation or just sloppy researching?

Oops! It looks like they got the message as half the original info has now been removed.
