Pathetic reply, exactly as expected.

Reference XXXXXXX

Dear Mr XXXXXXXX

Thanks for contacting us regarding our reporting on the emergence of new evidence suggesting Rangers FC covered up the reasons why a former youth coach (Gordon Neely) accused of child sex offences left the club.

We’ve received a range of feedback about our coverage of this story across our news output. Keeping in mind pressures on licence fee resources, this response seeks to address the key points. We’re sorry we can’t reply individually but we hope this will address most of the points raised.

In choosing which stories to cover each day and where they appear in our output, our editors base their decisions on the editorial merits of all the stories at hand, looking at various factors including whether it’s breaking news, follows on from a recent event, changes our understanding of things, is unusual or attracting interest etc. We accept that not everyone will agree with each decision.

We’ve reported extensively on child abuse allegations in Scottish football. As with our other reporting, this story was reported accurately and with due sensitivity and we stand by our journalism.

We can also assure you that, contrary to what’s been suggested, the BBC is not biased for or against Rangers FC. Our reporting is undertaken fully in line with the BBC’s Editorial Guidelines and with the Broadcasting Code which is laid down by the independent industry regulator, Ofcom.

Thank you again for your comments which have been shared with news teams and senior management.

Kind regards
Deborah Dawson

I have just received the same reply from the BBC and I will therefore be escalating it.

Is it identical mate?

If so, that only confirms that they are not taking the complaints seriously, a breach of their Ofcom obligations. 

To send out a one-size-fits-all, “here’s another fucking Sevco whinger” mass response is not good enough.

Be curious to know if anyone else complained and got the same standard reply above.

Maybe start a thread and poll the people who have complained,  to see what reply's they've had.

Yes Sweetheart .It's a farce 

Everything possible to make it more likely that no one would bother complaining 

They certainly don't make the process easy to complain.

For someone to spend that amount of time and effort to prove there was racism in GMP, there was no way Daly was not going to find it by which any ways he could. Leading questions to set guys up. I would like to see the full unedited recording to see if his views incriminated him.

Agreed.

I wonder who in the BBC chose to do this particular undercover project.?  Was taxpayers money used to send Daly on his 1 year under cover course? Why did they choose Daly to investigate this story? Why did his arrest get swept under the carpet? Why did Blunket have to apologise to the BBC after his criticisms of the deception? 

I would like to see the BBC questioned like The News of the World was for the way their employees conducted themselves whilst obtaining their stories.
