I recieved an email today with regards my complaint re the BBc Sports personality of the year,


Reference CAS-2471400-DZ4T0Y
Thank you for contacting us about BBC One’s ‘BBC Sports Personality of the Year’, as broadcast on 15 December.
We’d like to apologise for the delay in responding to your concerns. We know our correspondents appreciate a prompt response and we regret this has not been the case on this occasion.
We understand you were unhappy Lawrie Reilly did not feature in the obituary section of the programme.
We appreciate this is something which has caused you a great deal of disappointment. We therefore raised your complaint with the editor of ‘Sports Personality of the Year’.
We’re sure you can appreciate it is very difficult to include everyone we, or our audience, would like because of time constraints. However, please be assured we would certainly not wish to cause any offence as Lawrie was an outstanding player.

Copy and paste job. I got an almost identical response when I complained about something else a while back. They don't care, they're only interested in what the English viewers want.

I remember complaining to the BBC about their coverage of Gordon Brown's "bigotgate" moment. The Daily politics had a Tory MP on and him and his conservative buddy Andrew Neil started poking fun at Gordon's smile.

Took 9 months to receive a reply and it was nothing like the one you received above!

And rightly so, why shold the BBC concern themselves with a small backwater like Scotland! It's that small it can't even be expected to put out a decent national football team!

You've got a bloody nerve. They don't even speak English in Liverpool, not much point in your lot listening or watching to BBC anyway.

Besides, see when thon Suarez is awa, whit will the 'Pool do then, eh?

Back tae yer usual crap.

I suppose the other factor is that Gordon Brown is a total welt...

Considering the guy who won the bloody thing is a Hibby they could have made the effort to mention Lawrie.

I will condense the BBC's response to your complaint into the reply you would have got if there was no such thing as Wikipedia. Who?

Not the point, Andrew Neil had no right to laugh and poke fun at Gordon's smile!
