The debate surrounding both regulations upon halal slaughter and the sale of halal meat in commercial outlets is an important one. There are the legitimate concerns of various groups in the debate surrounding Halal meat in the UK, but these concerns were likely not at the root of The Sun and The Daily Mail's decision to report on the issue.
It's not an oversight or an accident that the PCC fails to spell out to the public which newspapers attract the most complaints and which papers breach the code most often. Look at this table of complaints about UK national daily and Sunday newspapers for 2013, compiled by Hacked Off from the PCC Monthly Complaint Summaries, and you will soon get an idea of who benefits if the public doesn't see these figures...
If you've seen the Daily Express or the Daily Mail over the festive period you may well be thinking that civilisation is about to end. If you believe the tabloid hype, Romanians and Bulgarians are currently streaming across the channel in their thousands like immigration's own re-enactment of the D-Day landings.
This edition of Panorama is merely a symptom of the wider discourse around immigration. A debate so toxic that facts are shouted down in a wave of popular fascism. But it also threatens our relationship with Europe and our right to free movement. On both fronts, we should all be worried about where this debate is heading in 2015.
What is there to love about a country that still glories in an empire that was an exercise in grand larceny, mass exploitation, human suffering, and cruelty?

When researching someone you're about to interview finding recent articles about them online with headlines like 'Wife divorces TV comic after discovering year-long affair' ranks alongside discovering that they punch every journalist they meet in the groin by way of a greeting. They know you've googled them and read that stuff. You know they know you've read it.
On Friday 12 July, something wonderful happened. It was Amanda Palmer "going for broke" in an open, naked letter to the Daily Mail. The singer-songwriter made the performance as part of her set at the Roundhouse in Camden, delighting the audience with her comedic Waltz which confronted the Daily Mail for their sexist reporting on her appearance at Glastonbury.
The research conducted by Ipsos MORI not only highlights a stark public ignorance it goes some way to demonstrating the growing thirst for blood in Britain, brought on by a media crafted war against benefit cheats and of course the apparent on-going struggle against Islamification; manufactured battles the public clearly think we are losing.
Talking to Mohammed over a coffee a few days after the meeting, he praised Dr Musharraff for a lifetime serving Muslims in Nottingham. But I sensed, though he is far too gracious to spell it out, Mohammed believes that the next generation needs to be more direct and actually start dictating the discussion - a luxury never really available to Dr Musharraff.
The media know nothing about what personally makes you happy. You know what your body likes. I am sick of journalists or magazines trying to promote a one size fits all policy. These blood type, eye colour body mass index diets leave you feeling empty and defeated when you can only survive off grapefruit juice for ten minutes.
