You'll remember the disgraceful article in the Scottish Sunday Express about the kids from Dunblane who ended up being like most other teenagers - yet somehow were 'shaming' the memory of their murdered classmates by going out and having a drink and talking about sex.
You'll also remember the other day that the Press Complaints Commission decided that Melanie Phillips should be allowed to talk complete crap about gay adoption - specifically, ruling that saying something is "totally untrue" means that you're acknowledging that it's true.
Well now the Pathetically Craven Commission has ruled again, on the subject of the Dunblane article in the Scottish Sunday Express. In a judgement that's particularly stinging even for the PCC, the Express is hauled over the coals. But what punishment has it actually received, other than a pretty stingy smack across the back of the legs? Er, none. Nothing whatsoever. Hooray for an accountable British press!
Presumably then the editor should be handing in his notice? Despite the tough words, the PCC has no powers whatsoever to enforce anything other than the publishing of its ruling. The Scottish Sunday Express editor, Derek Lambie, remains in his job this evening, under the main Sunday editor, Martin Townsend.
Well, you'd've thought so, in a fair world, but no. And that's the end of the PCC's involvement. Paul Dacre, big cheese of the PCC (and coincidentally editor of the Daily Mail) said some time ago that the 'humiliation' of a negative PCC judgement was punishment enough for any journalist. Ironic because 'humiliation' is exactly what the PCC said the Scottish Sunday Express handed out to these innocent teenagers.
So yes, let's just let them all carry on as if nothing had happened. Well done, PCC!
