The Jeremy Kyle Show used Facebook to track down contestants who wanted to take lie detector or DNA tests, according to written evidence submitted to MPs. In a letter to the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee, ITV chief executive Dame Carolyn McCall said the social network was used by the production team to post requests for people to contact the show. The Commons inquiry comes after Kyle’s show was taken off air following the death of Steve Dymond, 63, who died in a suspected suicide, a week after appearing. She wrote: “Other than aiming these ‘calls to action’ at our viewers and fans of the show, generally we did not target particular individuals, although some did specify people looking to take lie detector or DNA tests.” Dame Carolyn said the show uses the company UK Lie Tests to carry out lie detector tests and that it has told ITV the accuracy of the tests is in excess of 90per cent. The show’s executive producer Tom McLennan was … [Read more...] about Jeremy Kyle Show ‘used Facebook to track down contestants’

May I take issue with some of the comments of (‘Kyle Paisley: Protestant church leaders seem to be ashamed of their faith’, August 23)? I note that Kyle states in reference to the Pope’s visit; “it is quite something else for Protestant church leaders, particular in the North, to run to meet him.”May I respectively point out that the “Protestant church leaders” are leaders of all Ireland churches and are therefore not leaders ‘in the north’. They are therefore not ‘running to meet him’.It is also with noting, in relation to the Moderator of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland, that he is not ‘travelling south’, as he is the Moderator of an all Ireland church. According to the PCI website , “Presbyterian Moderator, Right Rev Dr Charles McMullen, has accepted an invitation from the Irish Government to the State reception it is holding for Pope Francis in Dublin Castle, on Saturday 25 August.”The … [Read more...] about Rev Brian Kennaway: ‘Kyle Paisley is wrong to say the Presbyterian moderator is travelling south at the invitation of the Pope’
0 Have your say JEREMY Corbyn deliberately chose to visit Wakefield and Pudsey to renew his call for an immediate election because he knows that the outcome in these swing seats will shape the future fortunes of the main parties. Yet they are also emblematic of the national divide. Two-thirds of voters in Wakefield backed Leave in the 2016 referendum – even though Mary Creagh, the city’s Labour MP, is a staunch Remainer who increased her own majority at the 2017 election. Jeremy Corbyn says pro-Brexit stance will not alienate Labour’s Remain supportersMeanwhile the electorate in Pudsey voted narrowly to stay in the EU despite Tory MP Stuart Andrew, now a junior Defence Minister, backing Brexit. His majority was cut to 331 votes and Labour has selected a Corbynite candidate from the far-left to trip and topple him.Just how does Mr Corbyn intend to reconcile these differences if he chooses to table a vote of no confidence in Theresa May’s … [Read more...] about The Yorkshire Post says: Brexit masks Labour’s splits – Jeremy Corbyn’s election opportunism
LIE detector tests have become more and more frequent on TV - with shows such as The Jeremy Kyle Show and Love Island making use of the devices. But how exactly do polygraph machines work? And how accurate are they? Here is all the info. How do lie detector tests work? During a test a number of sensors are attached to the body in an attempt to determine whether someone is telling the truth. Physiological changes can then be used to determine whether someone is telling the truth. The polygraph records blood pressure, pulse, respiration and skin conductivity while the subject is asked and answers a series of questions. A major change in any pattern, also known as a "response conflict", is a sign a person is lying. The test measures signs of stress including raised blood pressure, heart rate and galvanic skin response (GSR). The polygraph was invented in 1921 by medical student John Augustus Larson. How accurate are polygraphs? While they are not 100 per cent … [Read more...] about How do lie detector tests work, how accurate are polygraphs and is the Love Island lie detector real?
PUBLISHED: 05:53 13 September 2018 Paul Geater Nearly 2,000 people attended the Big Tent Ideas Festival at Babraham Hall near Cambridge. Picture: PAUL GEATER Archant I visited the Big Tent Ideas Festival near Cambridge at the weekend as politicians from all parties (well, almost) mingled with members of the public interested in the world about them. Do we all need to drive cars in towns? Picture: SARAH LUCY BROWNIt was the idea of Tory MP George Freeman, and while there were elements of the day that were slightly irritating, overall much of what was happening was very stimulating.Particularly welcome was the fact that here was a political event not dominated by a single political party. It was a pity that Jeremy Corbyn had apparently told his MPs not to attend which did leave it feeling slightly unbalanced – although Hove MP (and Corbyn critic) Peter Kyle did take part in debates and Cambridge MP Daniel Zeichner was there keeping an eye on what was … [Read more...] about What can the big ideas tell us about the way we’ll be living in the future?
