BBC Panorama reporter Samantha Poling
We have spent many years cajoling the BBC into exposing the biggest terrorist group on the planet the global Law Society.
They are responsible for more death and destruction of families, particularly men, than ALL other pseudo terrorism right across the planet.
Recently we have gotten wind that Panorama, a supposed flagship BBC investigative program, was canvassing victims of the law society to appear in an up and coming program they had planned. Now this came as a bit of a shock seeing the BBC, more than any other media organisation, have been protecting the murdering arses of the scum and filth that frequent the hallowed walls of the most sinister mafia on the planet.
Just like the BBC's predatory paedo Jimmy Savile , who abused children for more than five decades, the law society's crimes have been protected from exposure thanks to law society media lawyers sitting in judgement over what and what doesn't get aired in their news output.
We suspect someone has been crawling the books of the BBC to find evidence that not only did they protect a known paedophile for decades , but also that the long suffering licence payers have been informing the BBC en masse about the blatant criminality of crooked judges and lawyers acting for the Law Society that have destroyed their lives to the extent that many were psychologically and financially pushed into suicide because of the failure of the BBC and all the other major media outlets to expose these murderous vermin. Despite the suggestion that the Panorama researcher Samantha Poling had been chasing up Scottish victims proposing to do an EXPOSE on the Law Society of Scotland the whole issue has since died a death.
There is no doubt Law Society plants Rosalind McInnes and Alistair Bonnington are the media lawyers acting for the BBC, or more importantly acting in the best interests of the murdering crooks at the law society, have gotten wind of this program and have shut it down.
ROSALIND MCINNES HISTORY
Have you ever thought to yourself ‘I can’t believe I get paid to do this job?’ BBC Scotland lawyer and the recently-crowned Scottish Legal Personality of the Year 2005, Rosalind McInnes, has.
In fact, she says it quite often, particularly when watching the latest edition of Chewing the Fat before it is broadcast across the nation to ensure that the quick quips and one liners won’t land the Corporation in any legal hot water.
As one third of BBC Scotland’s in-house legal team, McInnes is tasked with working with programme producers
to guarantee that the BBC retains its squeaky-clean reputation and steers clear of offending any licence fee payers.
Glasgow-born, McInnes graduated from Glasgow University in 1991 and completed her traineeship at A&WM Urquhart in Edinburgh. She then spent a year with Bird Semple Fyfe Ireland before moving to Maclay Murray & Spens where she worked in construction litigation until she saw an opening at BBC Scotland.
The bulk of her work is programme advice, which sees her getting close to the BBC Scotland newsroom and being involved in programme making from an early stage, particularly on programmes such as Frontline and Panorama where the issues covered are often controversial.
Unfortunately McInnes’ week is not all about watching TV. As a committed author on media law, McInnes writes and contributes to many of the Scottish texts currently available. She is a regular lecturer on media law at Glasgow Graduate School of Law, a fellow of the Royal Society for the Encouragement of the Arts, Manufactures and Commerce, holds a board position for the Glasgow Repertory Company and also a judge at the World Schools Debating Championships.
There are a number of issues, which, as a lawyer with one of the biggest media organisations in the world, McInnes has to keep on top of: “Privacy is a big issue and perhaps the most frightening issue at the moment, because, basically, we are all pretty much flying by the seat of our pants,ť she commented. “The law in this area is so unpredictable at the moment. Professionally the unpredictability is inconvenient, but intellectually it can be very stimulating to watch a whole new cause of action taking shape.
The area of defamation is also one causing McInnes concern: “Since George Galloway won his Ł150,000 from The Daily Telegraph there is much more libel activity in England, and I am sure that will spread to Scotland. The English courts are now saying that you can get more from a libel action than you would if you were rendered paraplegic in a car crash. I don’t particularly like the sound of that.
From a Scottish perspective though McInnes does feel that the Scottish Courts are getting their act together in the area of contempt.
“The Scots Law of Contempt has got better. It has always been very rigid, and they have never had any difficulty in doing journalists and editors in what really is a criminal sanction. I am still amazed with what the English get away with. On the whole the law of contempt has relaxed quite a lot recently.
As a media organisation, getting TV cameras into Scottish courts is also high on McInnes’ agenda: “The difficulty is getting the legal consents from everybody, and I hope there will be liberalisation there. In a world where so many people get their news from the TV, then there is a limit to how much information a reporter standing outside a court building can realistically offer viewers.
“I suppose the other issue we face is trying to get hold of court productions and evidence after a trial has finished. English media lawyers are working on a protocol with the courts to do this. Obviously we wouldn’t want everything as some things are inappropriate, but here there isn’t even a right to get an indictment from a Sheriff Clerk, which makes it very difficult to follow and report a case if you can’t get access to the information you need to report a high profile case to the public.
So, what of the future? McInnes appears extremely happy in her position and, with the BBC’s move to its new Pacific Quay premises in around two years’ time, a degree of change is on the cards for McInnes. She concluded: “I am not really one of these five-year plan people. I would like to go on living as balanced a professional life as I do now. I want to go on thinking of work as a satisfying part of my life rather than continually striving to become a managing partner of a private firm by the time I am 40.
“If I can feel that I am in some small way contributing to the important work that the BBC does, then I am happy.

Attention of Samatha Poling
We have been given information that you have been working on a Panorama program that relates to the Law Society of Scotland .Our group have many victims who over the years have made attempts to contact the BBC to have this exposed to no avail.Now like Jimmy Savile we are well aware that the BBC have been protecting criminals and paedo's for many years, but the crimes of the Law Society even make Savile's crimes pale yet NOTHING has ever been done by the BBC to expose this.
We also know that the likes of lawyer and Law Society of Scotland plant Rosalind McInnes and others operate as media lawyers for the BBC.We are also aware they are spies reporting back about any issues that may impact on their mass thieving of their victims into the Łtrillions. So we ask you to comment on WHY this program has seemingly died a death and no doubt like Savile will
be buried with the rest of his crimes against children.
Also there is no doubt lawyers helped protect Savile to carry out those crimes by also protecting his back. We have made many requests to the BBC using FOI legislation and have been appalled at the secretive way they can avoid scrutiny by suggesting FOI can be undermined using the excuse program making is not covered by Freedom of Information laws. Since then the Savile revelations prove secrecy within the BBC has hidden the most vile abuses carried out on BBC premises with the nod and wink from senior establishment figures.
The BBC are now under enormous pressure to ACT on reports from their viewers particularly regarding issues that have been buried by Law Society informants. We ask that you respond prior to taking any further action on this matter.
