Outrageous (updated)

This is everywhere, so I shall be brief. Really I am just registering my astonishment that the Guardian “newspaper” has been banned from reporting the proceedings of parliament. This is a genuine constitutional outrage, and should not have been even contemplated. Having been attempted it should not have been allowed. Guido adds the details that the Guardian is forced to omit, using his off-shore server privilege (the US has the freedom of speech stuff right).

The Trafigura case is a truly awful story, disgusting, basically down to killing black people for profit. They certainly should not be protected by our courts!

So who is going to stop Carter Fuck? They seem to be implicated in every disgusting cover-up (any law firm with a long-standing Private-Eye nickname is suspect).

Update: just to link to the Guardian's report on Trafigura. Thanks Speccie.

Update: gag order lifted, many are crediting a widespread internet campaign, on blogs and Twitter.

Stumble Upon Toolbar

Good to hear now that the Guardian is able to report on the story now.38 Degrees are currently running a campaign on this. Take action now by emailing your MP and asking them to take a stand to stop this happening again in the future. Take action now, it only takes 2 mins. Go to:
