#NUJ Pronouncement on future of #BBC is a “vindictive and desperate act of distraction”. Michelle Stanistreet comments on the weekend newspaper briefing from an “ally” of Nadine Dorries, Culture Secretary, on the end of the TV licence and funding freeze. nuj.org.uk/resource/governme…

This government wants to silence you, to stop you speaking out against their law-breaking and corruption, and they're using the #PolicingBill to do it. The new laws in the #PCSCBill would have thrown the Jarrow Marchers into prison.

As well as highlighting the rules @ICOnews should urgently investigate whether they have been broken, w/o waiting for complaints from the many who have made #FOI requests on #PartyGate to come in. Any delay may mean no action can be taken b/c of the 6 month limit on prosecutions.
Stories about Downing Street lockdown parties are in the news. We’ve highlighted the rules around not deleting emails or texts that may be relevant to answer a Freedom of Information request. Our full response: ico.org.uk/about-the-ico/new…

#BBC local contracts are on strike as of this morning. They had been in talks since August 2021 but no agreement was reached. I stand in support of my colleagues and friends. They deserve to be heard and seen. @BBCNews @bbcworldservice @BBCWorld @bbcturkce

First media strike in #Turkey since 2009. #BBC journalists, employed on local contracts, begin strike as they and the country are buffeted by skyrocketing inflation (which independent estimates put at 80%).

Journalists at BBC Turkey have gone on strike in protest at low pay. A downturn in the Turkish economy has seen inflation hit between 36 and 82 per cent, but the journalists report being offered just a 20% increase in their wages to try and match that.

The @ICOnews @JCE_IC should urgently investigate this now rather than wait for complaints. The deliberate destruction of records requested under #FOI to prevent disclosure is an offence under s.77 of FOIA. 1/3
NEW: No 10 staff clearing phones of partygate messages could have committed criminal offences under FOIA, the ICO has warned, as separate legal challenge by @Foxglovelegal/@allthecitizens could lead to gov lawyers probing if staff were told to "clean up". businessinsider.com/downing-…
