Comment posted NeverSeconds: time to let Martha Payne recover anonymity by The Lone Rider.
I am a huge fan of free speech, but this slow motion train wreck, could easily be cited as an example to curtail all of our Liberties on the internet.
Whilst raising money for charity, is always commendable, throwing dinnerladies to the wolves, who need to work like everyone else to feed their families, is nothing short of appalling.
This is not the work of poor Martha, but the Father, who, with the planning and forethought of a chess master, has systematically played, the people, the council, and the school.
Of course the school would request that no more photographs should be taken, in light of a certain tabloids headline! Would you not, if it happened to your business? Or if somebody wrote a blog about you??
What if someone goes to every shop and business in town, and does exactly the same? Nobody looks good under a microscope.
This blog was written with all the tact and grace, that one would expect from a certain tabloid newspaper, which thankfully is no more, for the same lack of good judgement.
Really, does it need to have the likes of “Pieces of hair” listed for meals in which no hair was found? That, right there, coupled with the blatant misrepresentation of what is on offer at the school, is a tabloid sales pitch, if ever I saw one!
If the computer savvy among you, were to take the time to download the images sent in as “examples” of school meals in other countries, especially the one that looks like it was taken by a professional, and examine its EXIF data, you will find that two were taken in 2011, and one was taken in 2007! Yet again, hardly a truthful representation.
For those who aren’t aware, EXIF data tells you the make of camera used for the picture, along with date and time, and occasionally location.
To all those people that jumped on the band wagon, without a single thought for the people, especially the dinnerladies, who are being consumed by the fallout, shame on you!
I ask you again, if someone wrote a tactless, and overly critical blog about you, or a member of your family, how would YOU feel??

- At NO point, in my post did I “attack” a 9 year old.
I am sure that by now she feels quite helpless, regarding the way in which this has spun out of control.
The fact remains, that it is out of control, and thanks to the media, the frantic fighting for “rights”, and the baying for the Councils blood, nobody stopped to think about the innocent people that have been caught in the crossfire.
Nobody should be attacking anybody, and everybody should be supporting the dinnerladies.
