Follow-up to complaint response 02/03/11

Further complaint lodged on BBC web site:

Many thanks for your recent reply on this matter.

I note with interest this sentence: "Factors such as whether it is news that has just come in and needs immediate coverage, how unusual the story is and how much national interest there is in the subject matter will all play a part in deciding the level of coverage and where it falls within a bulletin.".

To confirm in my own mind that I understand you perfectly, could I ask how the following topics discussed on the Jeremy Vine show in the days prior to the referendum fall in to the factors that you list in that sentence?:

22/02/11 Fried chicken shops
22/02/11 Silent treatment from partners
23/02/11 Do you prefer TV adverts to programmes?
24/02/11 Breast milk ice cream
28/02/11 Drunks in Scottish hospitals
01/03/11 Soup kitchens in Westminster.
