Diary: On the QT ...

The latest report from the Ofcom adjudicator, David Connolly, covering the second and third quarters of the year, has been eagerly awaited. So how many TV dealing complaints has the adjudicator been forced to adjudicate on? Erm, none. But don't worry, Connolly has kept himself occupied. The report announces triumphantly that the Office of the Adjudicator now has a dedicated website. Time for a rest, surely ...
