Blogger Bullied

Every so often a story appears which makes even acerbic bloggers re-read the details, so as to confirm the arrogance & stupidity of those responsible for it. In this case it concerns the local council for Argyll and Bute in the west of Scotland. The pathetic bureaucrats have bullied a nine year-old girl into discontinuing a blog she's kept about the quality of the school meals she & her fellow pupils have been offered (http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2012/jun/15/girl-photos-school-meals-blog ).
The blog by Martha Payne (http://neverseconds.blogspot.co.uk ) is impressive, doubly so when you consider her age.
If you would like to let Argyll & Bute council know about your views on their reprehensible & ultimately counterproductive actions, you can (http://www.argyll-bute.gov.uk/phone-numbers/contact-us ).

14.50 UPDATE: The idiots responsible for intimidating a nine year-old schoolgirl have been forced to back down (http://www.guardian.co.uk/education/2012/jun/15/school-meals-blogger-council-ban ).
