Let’s revisit these three posts again before getting into it:
Graham Roberts now brings an interesting angle to the story:
How ironic that the Media Standards Trust , set up by 2 Common Purpose trustees, have now got involved in the hacking scandal. The Media Standards Trust is a trojan horse fake charity set up to re-balance as they see fit how the press is regulated (in other words to the advantage of their cronies inside the BBC – Guardian)
Middleton and Bells – CP Trustees and founders of the Media Standards Trust had been collecting illegally for nearly 2 years, the data of foi requesters, then distributing their names via a blacklist – to public bodies who CP dealt with. CP embarked on a smear campaign against ordinary members of the public who put in foi requests referencing CP.
Evidence of the above:
Graham points out that “north west dev agency originally lied but later had to admit that name had been passed on”:

I’m afraid my own barely articulate response, upon reading these pdfs was: “Bastards!”
The Guardian newspaper broke the story of the hacking of Milly Dowler’s voicemail on 4th July 2011. The Media Standards Trust was quick off the mark, setting up, with ex CP employee Chris Bryant:
… on 5th July 2011. The domain name ‘hackinginquiry.org’ had been registered a couple of weeks previously on 15th June 2011, with the Media Standards Trust itching for a public inquiry into hacking. .
So what is Common Purpose up to? They are now campaigning for “the establishment of a full public inquiry into phone hacking and other forms of illegal intrusion by the press” as it says on the hackinginquiry.org website.
We know that Common Purpose is seriously into social control so they are exploiting ‘hackgate’ to promote their control of the media agenda. The Media Standards Trust may try to set itself up as an alternative to the Press Complaints Commission (PCC).

Here is an example of the type of thing CP do:
Common Purpose to face no further action from Information Commissioner
By Paul Jump, Third Sector Online, 8 December 2009
Charity that was found likely to have breached data protection principles has told watchdog it will not do so again
The Information Commissioner’s Office has decided not to take any further action against leadership training charity Common Purpose despite upholding its initial assessment that the charity had probably breached data protection principles.
The ICO ruled in October that the charity was unlikely to have complied with the provisions in the Data Protection Act 1998 on processing personal data when it compiled a list containing the personal details of people who had made requests under the Freedom of Information Act relating to its dealings with public authorities.
The list was sent to public authorities receiving new Freedom of Information Act requests to demonstrate the view of Common Purpose that the requests were vexatious.
