Open message to Tony Hall, BBC, Vaz...
Friday, 22 August 2014
Very well intentioned but the BBC, police, Keith Vaz and everyone are looking down the wrong road.

If "you will be believed" is correct and people do not make up or exaggerate claims about celebrities and others, then there is nothing wrong with the way things are done. Police SHOULD "tip off" media before searches or arrests. If people never lie or exaggerate, media should broadcast allegations - they are a "great story".

But if you accept MY opinion (and experience) that people DO make things up, inflate, colour, and imagine things - especially if the person is famous - then this is appalling behaviour and leads to terrible injustice.

It's very simple - but anathema to society, it appears.
