"It does rather raise the question of what part of Ofcom "ruling" you did not understand."

Ah, self-satisfied AC snarking. Always good value for money.

"cannot have a legitimate expectation of privacy in circumstances where their behaviour is severely anti-social and contravenes public decency in the manner shown in the CCTV footage i.e. urinating on the floor of a communal lift and performing a sex act in a communal lift".

That's likely to be an actionable offence, and I'd reckon any such sentence would have a significant bearing on the outcome of the Ofcom ruling (that I understood just fine, thanks) and would be relevant background. But please, continue to snipe from cover if it shores up your fragile ego.

"You're waiting for a lift with your child and the doors open on that?"

Luckily for you, your kid doesn't have to chance it now. He can just watch it on TV, or look it up on You Tube, or some other kid will send a link to him. Thanks to the joke that enforcement of privacy laws is in the UK, and thanks to some underpaid (or plain idiotic) CCTV operator, and to a bunch of greedy, miserable, unprincipled, TV producers.

She might have done something rude and stupid (urinating in a lift) or taken part in something that you don't approve of (having sex in a communal, rather than public, space), along with someone else who by the way seems to have escaped any form of condemnation. That does not justify taking advantage of her position and the equivalent of a tarring and feathering. That is not the mark of a civilised society. Is this how you want your children to grow up?

Re: Good

No offense is committed in the leaving of urine on a floor.

An offense may be committed in the act of urination if the genitals are willingly exposed to other persons, in which case the offence of "exposure" (sexual offences act 2003 section 66) is committed (he also means she).

Having sex with a person who is drunk may well be considered, by a court, to be rape if the person involved is incapable of consenting to sex.

Re: Good

Southampton Council byelaws make it a summary offence to urinate in a public place. However as the unedited footage shows them effectively both exposing themselves to the operators, public decency offences would seem to apply too.

What's that man doing mummy?

(i) Err, he hid a stick of rock in his trousers but she's found it.

(ii) Its a very old fashioned remedy for tonsilitis, but you mustn't try it until you're older'

He is receiving oral sex, son.

Children are not stupid, it's just the adults who have been conditioned to feel uncomfortable about it, particularly so in Anglo-saxon countries, for some reason.

"And this is what passes for 'entertainment' on Channel 4 these days?"

Regrettably so. In the Flex household this sort of stuff is referred to as a caring, sharing, freak show. Add a thin layer of social commentary and you can apparently serve up any amount of bad behaviour from the less fortunate in society. And to think we look down on Hogarth's contemporaries for going along to laugh at the inmates at Bedlam.

Or perhaps you have an intimate medical problem you're too embarrassed to see your GP about? Why not expose your suppurating nads to the whole nation on one of C4's medical shows? The freakier the better.

Re: sigh!

It's pure unadulterated "poor porn", cheap and easy to make. Get an out of work jobbing actor for £100/day, get them to voice over some PD CCTV footage and you've got yourself a TV show.

The mentality of those who watch, "Ha ha, look at those people they're worse than us, let's laugh at them for entertainment!". Sorry but anyone who sinks low enough to watch this kind of utter shit for entertainment is, in my opinion, lower than the people being shown in these so called documentaries.

Reminds me of the "TV shows" in THX-1138, simply boiled down to the key elements. You want sex? Just watch two people having it off. Want violence? Watch someone being beaten. Why bother wasting time with characters of plots, just show the key elements in the raw.

I'd rather watch my cat take a dump than the shite that spews out of the TV channels these days.

Re: sigh!

I would rather see the cult of the cat video or photo wiped from the face of the 'net, maybe we have a little of a start with major media playing the same thing up for a few years now, surely that is depriving it of any appeal to coolness?

The video of this sounds a little more interesting than one of your cat having a dump, and the acts likely left less of a stench. Cat shit is putrid, I know cat lovers enjoy the smell, can never understand why.

And much less anti-social than others who enjoy government support for their actions, but she went from hero to zero by leaving a mess. I know I wouldn't hire her, well maybe part time.
