Or actions in response to requests from people on the receiving end.

I'm guessing that the Daily Telegraph managed to pick out the juiciest sound bites from whoever it interviewed. Standard practice from right wing rags. As is just making stuff up.

No, it's a load of right-wing BS written about supposed left-wing BS. It's the Daily Telegraph, clickbait pretending to be news.

If you have any evidence of that I suggest you write to the Telegraph to complain.
