What’s the difference between PCC & BCC

The picture that said a thousand suppliers.

Fresh from being elected with less than 10% of the electorate in favour of him a recently appointed Police Commissioner writes to all the suppliers to tell them the email addresses of all their suppliers (and a few extra organisations – such as rape crisis centres, police officers, probation officers and some personal email addresses).  Still no harm done eh? No law broken, no real personal data involved. No brain cells used in the distribution of this list.

Makes me feel like Phillip Schofield. (When I say this it doesn’t mean I feel like him as in desire him – more like feel I’m in a similar predicament…)
