I have received a reply to my Appeal to the BBC Trust from the Secretary to the Editorial Standards Committee. He states:-
"We believe it appropriate for the ESC to make a decision as to whether to hear your complaint on appeal due to the arguments you have raised. We will therefore place all of your correspondence with the BBC, as well as your appeal letter to the ESC in front of the Committee at their next meeting on 1 July 2009."
So far so good. I presume this means I've sprung some new argument on them that they need to consider. Watch this space. . . .
