DAY 3597: FRIDAY APRIL 8TH 2011.
OFCOM got back to me today, (see below) and have "entertained" the basic guts of my complaint about the BBC, although I have to say, "entertained" is in the circumstances, ghastly terminology.
& so we shall see that either the "right of reply" is real or it is not. Of course the right of reply, which only needs to be a simple one liner does - out - agent provocateurs. And it is therein that I think the real "problem" really lies.
I find it - how should I put it - "interesting" that Ofcom should consider in the part of the complaint they did not "entertain", that - harassment - of me, by the BBC would need to involve the BBC obtaining sensitive or private information about me (see below p.4 &5), which is of course utter nonsense. You can be harassed by someone who does not know anything about you at all.
"Interestingly" that leaves me (for the time being) open to ...further harassment.... from the BBC, which of course, I will not "entertain":)
The people's ability to actually practise "Freedom of Expression" is not as clear cut as many people like to imagine.
I guess since I haven't sued the BBC, that means that the matter complained of, (the actions of the BBC) is not subject to current legal proceedings.
It transpires that the edited footage the Bitch (formerly known as Gallestegui) handed over to the BBC was taken shortly after WCC served notice of "proceedings".
I can't imagine why I might possibly have been pissed off :) & telling Madam to "tell the truth", ....about leaving her campaign unmanned.
Possibly it was - because - of two unlawful "arrests" over illegal searches 18th November 2009, & 25th May 2010, along with the GLA Democracy Village/ Peace Strike proceedings in the High Court we were joined with, while then being dumped with WCC proceedings - all - of which arose because of what is clearly the - Peace Strike - government operation.
What the BBC propaganda did prove was that they all knew the bit they had to cover up, the "unmanned" bit of the 'government operation'.

thanx 4 response. i would just like to make it clear - now - that (regardless of what the bbc may want) - i - will only accept a right of reply - the concept of right of reply is either real or it is not (and in this case it's a pretty serious issue)

entertained complaint a) should read, the edited footage excluded what Mrs Tucker was asking Ms Gallestegui to "tell the truth" about.
