By name, 100% accurate, by location error, >95%. Verdict: you are both mean and preoccupied with some unimportant details.

Nobody can be mean to Dailymail !

This was highlighted to me by a few friends in the media industry.

The photo has a footnote that says 'stock photo'. Maybe that's why? :mrgreen:

Why not? The government reads this forum all the time. I know. I've had interviews with them a couple years ago asking me for advice on how to speed up their appeals processes and other things. One of the directors actually joined the forum so he could approach me via PM to make the appointment. (the 1 hours discussion lasted the entire morning! at a coffee shop adjacent to their old building at Havelock Road (in the Apollo Centre).
