Proud to have published Lyrically Justified, Volume 2, with an official launch event at Waterstones (Bristol) on 27th January in the evening - other events across the UK to follow.

Inspiring poetry from diverse authors across the UK, traditionally excluded from getting published. Exactly what Arkbound is about!

http://hackinginquiry.org/comment/faking-change-a-brief-history-of-ipso/

An 'old' article, but one still of crucial relevance to the present. The 'Independent Press Standards Organisation' remains far too similar to its failed predecessor, condemned by Leveson and even the present Government as 'not fit for purpose'. Simply put: it is a poodle, whose real masters are the media moguls who have come to dominate over 70% of the UK's newspaper circulation.

The above article gives a concise timeline of events. 

As for the 15 complaints (out of 12,763) that were upheld by IPSO's predecessor, it seems a similar percentage is being carried on. So, for anyone who feels the likes of the Sun have presented a story inaccurately, or otherwise in breach of the Editors Code of Conduct, they have less than a 0.01% chance of having the matter properly investigated and upheld.

And even then, the most they can feasibly hope for is an apology hidden away where nobody will find it.

Happy to have been awarded the Travel and Transport - Best Newcomer award at the Go Green 2016 awards yesterday. 

Arkbound continues to deliver by bike and foot only - with staff coming to work by the same means or, on occasion, by public transport. We strongly believe that utilising sustainable means of transportation is a core component of reducing carbon emissions. Moreover, it is healthy!

Private transport - especially by single occupancy cars - may be convenient but it carries huge costs for the environment and even for society. Aside from the pollution impacts, congested roads contribute to fragmented communities and the erosion of green spaces. 

Arkbound will continue to raise awareness of this issue and, as ever, we will vigorously uphold the standards we proclaim.
