  1. Judging by the comments from the PCC at the bottom of this article, they will be spineless again and not take action.

    Despite the numerous complaints that they would have had.

    The organisation really is not fit for purpose!

  2. PCC are a waste of time. They are in the pockets of the newspaper proprietors and therefore their sole aim is to rebuff all complainst.

    Hence Leveson!

  3. It’s almost 183,000, which is a bit more accurate than over 100,000. Just sayin! :)

  4. He has always been an odious bigoted creep….he should be sacked and never be employed by anybody so he cant spread his vile views….like others I too think the PCC are a waste of time

  5. PCC ARE USLESS – this is why something should have been done to stop the media peddling untruth and misinformation. You Littlejohn would NEVER write soemthing along simular line about black or Asian people but still produces article which are vile towards the LGBT community.

    Without LGBT it’s unlikely he would have job – he is obsessed with LGBT issues and asylum seekers.

    1. But Ben- thats what Daily Mail readers are obsessed with!!!

      He’s writing for his target audience!

    It’s not just the family of the victim that are affected if an article targets a minority group, but every member of that group and sometimes their families too.

    But besides that,with the editor of the Daily Mail running the PCC, how can we ever be sure there is not a conflict of interest in these cases?

  7. What always disturbs me more than individual stories is the size of the readership of this odious publication.

  8. Let me guess what the outcome of this will be!

  9. I was told about transgendered people when I was 8 years old and Dana International won the Eurovision Song Contest. My reaction was not confusion, but curiosity—a perfectly natural reaction for a child. When does that open-minded curiosity turn into prejudice? Could it be through reading drivel like the Daily Mail?

      This is the point really.

      As you say children will be very curious not confused and this is where teachers must be allowed to do their job and properly.

      Fact is it’s the ignorant adult parent who have the prejudice though not all in fact a minority. And it’s that minority that scream as if they’re talking for the rest. Fact… they don’t.

    Yep and what’s the betting the PCC will do nothing because it’s governed by themselves.

    Fact is the story of Lucy Meadows was not in the public interest. The press should have realised that Ms Meadows would have been going through quite enough without the unfair one sided intrusion she got from the likes of Littlejohn.

    I very much doubt the press will learn from the Leveson inquiry and it’s only a matter of time until we go through it all again.

    What the PCC is not telling anyone (quelle surprise) is that Lucy herself had made complaints to them about media harrassment before her death.

    That doesn’t fit their sordid little agenda of course!
