Who in the MOD signed off on this. They should be taken out and shot, there cannot be a more degrading representation of justice than to see this on the box.
I cannot remember any murderers sentences being broadcast live in the UK so why all of a sudden have the government even considered this let alone the MOD. Or does it come down to the MOD being so short of funds they sell CMs to the highest bidder.
Have phone the TDG to see if any of their reports knows anything, blanked as expected but will email them anything I can find out. I have looked at the sky website and found nothing refering to the "Decision" anywhere.
I have Sky here at my sisters so will keep an eye on the news (if I can stand it)
Agreed. There is no way that Sky News are suddenly going to be allowed with cameras inside a court, when news agencies have been pushing for the privilege for over 50 years.
Still b@stards for waiting in the foyer to pick over the bones though. Half a dozen iraqis treated no worse than British teenage apprentices of thirty years ago and the media treat the proceedings like the Spanish Inquisition.
