David Allen Green's piece for the New Statesman today takes the Jacqui Thompson case further. It seems Dyfed Powys Police have sent out a very generic response to his detailed questions about Ms Thompson's arrest for filming a council meeting.
Press officers in the public sector are under a great deal of pressure from higher authorities who often don't have a good understanding of what makes good and bad PR. Delayed and formulaic response that doesn't answer the questions matters worse.
Neither the council or the local force are coming out of this well, particularly when the links I made reference to yesterday are taken into consideration.
