[100 word news] – BBC Thought Police: Offensive comments will be reported to your employer

A change to the BBC website’s Privacy Policy means the corporation will now punish people who post ‘offensive’ comments by reporting them to their employers. The relevant section reads:

‘If you post or send offensive, inappropriate or objectionable content anywhere on or to BBC websites or otherwise engage in any disruptive behaviour on any BBC service, the BBC may use your personal information to stop such behaviour’.

‘Where the BBC reasonably believes that you are or may be in breach of any applicable laws (e.g. because content you have posted may be defamatory), the BBC may use your personal information to inform relevant third parties such as your employer, school email/internet provider or law enforcement agencies about the content and your behaviour’.

  1. Freedom of speech allows us to comment and the majority of people follow guidelines of ‘good taste’, where I am often offended is by the BBC. Such as producing a Tory councillor posing as a member of the public on Q time or biases not endorsed by BBC Trust.
    What sages will enact the role of Orwellian censor?
    So pleased I am self employed and able to ignore this policy no one voted for.
