Lest They’ve Forgot

NUJ code of conduct – https://www.nuj.org.uk/about/nuj-code/

The NUJ’s code of conduct has set out the main principles of UK and Irish journalism since 1936. The code is part of the rules of our union.

All journalists joining the NUJ have to sign up and agree they will strive to adhere to its professional principles.

We encourage people to read and support the code of conduct and we ask members to promote it in the media industry.

If you are a member and you have a query about the code and its practical application, contact the union’s ethics council. – https://www.nuj.org.uk/work/nuj-ethics/

A journalist:

1. At all times upholds and defends the principle of media freedom, the right of freedom of expression and the right of the public to be informed.

2. Strives to ensure that information disseminated is honestly conveyed, accurate and fair.

3. Does her/his utmost to correct harmful inaccuracies.

4. Differentiates between fact and opinion.

5. Obtains material by honest, straightforward and open means, with the exception of investigations that are both overwhelmingly in the public interest and which involve evidence that cannot be obtained by straightforward means.

6. Does nothing to intrude into anybody’s private life, grief or distress unless justified by overriding consideration of the public interest.

7. Protects the identity of sources who supply information in confidence and material gathered in the course of her/his work.

8. Resists threats or any other inducements to influence, distort or suppress information and takes no unfair personal advantage of information gained in the course of her/his duties before the information is public knowledge.

9. Produces no material likely to lead to hatred or discrimination on the grounds of a person’s age, gender, race, colour, creed, legal status, disability, marital status, or sexual orientation.

10. Does not by way of statement, voice or appearance endorse by advertisement any commercial product or service save for the promotion of her/his own work or of the medium by which she/he is employed.

11. A journalist shall normally seek the consent of an appropriate adult when interviewing or photographing a child for a story about her/his welfare.

12. Avoids plagiarism.

The NUJ believes a journalist has the right to refuse an assignment or be identified as the author of editorial that would break the letter or spirit of the NUJ code of conduct.

The NUJ will support journalists who act according to the code.
NUJ code of conduct was updated in 2011.

There is also no evidence of Rangers not having a plan,we just don’t know what it is,again we just cannot presume there is no plan.

===========================

I can !!!

Ironically FFs attempt to create FUD around PMG’s output and rebuild King’s reputation as Messiah and doer of financial miracles has solicited a number of well reasoned responses on several topics from several contributors. Collectively they lay out the many mine fields between here and fully funded bear nirvana.

So FFs achievement is to clarify for any undecided ST buyer that it’s a choice between a blind faith gamble of £411 on the word of a tardy, absentee, convicted criminal or paying at the gate. As FF has advised several times “we need to wait and see”. I suggest potential ST buyers take his advice and keep their options open. There could be an Xmas treat in it for the kids.

So you are retracting “I believe all unsold shares can be bought by DK.” and acknowledging it is an extraordinaty claim or day dream
=======================================================================

No sir,all unsold shares can be bought by DK,it is a fact not an extraordinary claim.

=========================================================

So you know King’s resources are adequate to do so and/or he is minded to do so. Or are you saying “I believe all unsold shares can be bought by DK or any other current shareholder with the resources and will – because that’s how a rights issue works but no one has yet stated any intention to do so.”. In which case you are saying nothing of interest.

Mods – you’ve been very busy pruning comments over the past day or so. How would you describe the reason for that.

erm, moderation?

y4rmy – totally agree with your recently deleted comment – fancy a quick pint – and maybe a few slow ones ?

Ashley loses dual interest appeal, but has fine reduced.

====================================================================

Dear SFA

I’m having some trouble understanding logic on your planet. I believe flummoxed is the word.

Ashley lending money to a football club as the lender of last resort days before an insolvency event is GOOD. Appointing a trusted, high value employee as CEO with extensive football experience to help that football club avoid similar circumstances is BAD. Naturally, the SFA Compliance Officer lodged a complaint. But the complaint was not BAD enough to act quickly – the tribunal was delayed twice (by the SFA) and happened months after the complaint (15-Dec – 03-Mar). Once judged upon, the offence was not BAD enough to require a cease and desist order – and the offence continued. The offence was mitigated because the loan was repaid in Jan 2015 – using a much bigger loan from the offender with provision to appoint two people to the board – once again days before an insolvency event. This bigger loan with board positions is tacitly GOOD because the SFA Compliance Officer has not lodged a complaint.

That the offender exerts almost complete control over the football club by controlling the majority of its retail revenue (76%), plus most of its physical assets and almost all of its intellectual property is tacitly GOOD because the SFA Compliance Officer has not lodged a complaint.

Yes flummoxed is the word.

Surely W H Ireland and Deloitte need to get this sorted out:

Nominated Adviser – WH Ireland Limited, 24 Martin Lane, London EC4R 0DR

Broker – WH Ireland Limited, 24 Martin Lane, London EC4R 0DR

Auditors and reporting accountants – Deloitte LLP, 2 Hardman Street, Manchester M60 2AT
