I just thought that I would share with you all the response of the Scottish Sunday Express to the complaints about their Dunblane story:
It's editor Derek Lambie has replied:
"Many thanks for your letter. As you are no doubt aware – thanks to mass bloggers on the Internet – we have been inundated with letters and comments. Many of them have been extremely personal.
"I can assure you each and every one of the Comments from readers and residents in Dunblane is being read and discussed."
Just savour that one for a minute will you: 'Thanks to mass bloggers on the internet.' So it's our fault is it Derek?
It's our fault that you attacked the victims of Dunblane as soon as you legally could? It's our fault that you wrongly accused them of shaming their dead friends? It's our fault that you misled people into condemning them as well? It's all our fault is it Derek?
Now if Paula Murray was a politician, or a celebrity, the people of Dunblane would by now have expected a full apology.
In fact if history is a guide it would have been Paula herself who would have hit the offenders doorstep first.
But as it is what do we get? Absolutely nothing. Nothing that is, except a few words from her editor whining about being found out.
Well boo hoo Derek. You've bitten a group of (what you assumed to be) defenceless eighteen year olds, and now a few of them have bitten back.
It's time to face up and apologise.
Please take time to complain to the PCC here.
