    І dіsаpprоvе оf whаt yоu sаy, but І wіll dеfеnd tо thе dеаth yоur rіght tо sаy іt says:

    And who is the AV person with a injuction out?

  3. 3
    Up sh1t creek says:

    From 2008, it’s like watching “Have I got Old News For You.” I’m sure the establishment would like you to drop it, and “move on”. It’s the right thing to do. ;)

    AC1 says:

    He’s not softy I’m guessing that he Iz ‘Ard.

  5. 5
    Up sh1t creek says:

    It’s Nick Clegg. Apparently he is not happy that people call him a loser, someone who reneges on election promises, and someone that will do whatever to stay in power.

  6. 6
    Phil says:

    Hopefully it’s a politician – far more damaging to the AV campaign than some wanker celeb.

  7. 7
    legion says:

    No wonder Marr hated bloggers: “A lot of bloggers seem to be socially inadequate, pimpled, single, slightly seedy, bald, cauliflower-nosed young men sitting in their mother’s basements and ranting.

    Scared they publish his dirty little secret ? Did the BBC know – did they pay for the injunction ?

    Because of the internet, super injunctions are not worth the paper they’re written on, so let the stupid and the rich get relieved of thousands by devious lawyers for what is essentially only useful for bog roll.

    Considering it’s an attempt to hush up a colourful sex life it could be any of the LibDems and/or their mistresses.

    misterned says:

    I believe that labour’s favourite phrase from those times was “let’s draw a line under it and move on”. meaning “we fucked up BIG TIME, but don’t want to talk about it.”

    Which is completely different to their behaviour with regards to the phone hacking story init?

    Even with Ed Miliband actively sucking Murdoch’s cock last week to beg the sun to back labour again, they are still not letting that hacking “scandal” lie.

    Guido. You should be ashamed bothering yourself with such trivia when Bonkers Johnson is planning a football team based on his little bastards. Its just like the good old days of “back to basics” – Yo-yo Yeo, Portillo and the strange case of Eastleigh, the better use of Chelsea shirts, to say nothing of a hot curry every so often. All we need now is for you to print the truth about the Natalie Rowe files. Why do I think not…..

    Penfold says:

    It seems to be a given, that those within the political machine regularly suppress the dissemination of news stories that may embarrass a politico, or fellow hacks. It all seems to follow the old MAD policy (Mutally assured destruction).
    Whilst this very pal-ship is all well and good and ensures that their is a mutual two way exchange of stories and information, it stinks.
    It sucks and stinks as it is used for personal gain. We see Marr abusing the system to protect himself, and his fellow hacks falling over to abase themselves from dobbing a fellow hack. Equally on the other side of the game, the lobby hacks censured themselves and cheated the public by not reporting on charlie Kennedy’s alcoholism.

    They are all scum and come the revolution will get their comeuppance.

    Buy lamp-posts and hemp rope.

    So a superinunction is when it is well done.

  54. 54
    Sicko says:

    Given the Guardian’s historical difficulties with spelling, I’m left uncertain whether ‘censored’ in this quotation from the linked article is supposed to be ‘censured’ or not:

    “Tory MP Louise Bagshawe was censored after dropped a hint at the identity of a married Premier League footballer…”

    ‘After dropped’ suggests slovenly editing, rather than a comment on our beloved secrecy laws, though..

    Not a bad idea, except for the time, knowledge and motivation needed. Like 95% of Joe Public I rely on the media including blogs for my info. If Guido claims to be outing wrongs why is so much missing that can be found elsewhere?

    Same reason many in Labour are against it, because they’re afraid they’ll lose seats to the smaller parties. The LibDems are in favour of it because they think they’ll gain seats. Milliband is for it because he has a cool £3 mill with William Hill, at 85/1 odds, that the Labour party will have ceased to exist by 2010. Now his leadership strategy begins to make sense!

    Or could you, for instance, write something along the lines of:

    The injunctor, whose name does not begin with H, loves humbugs;
    The injunction does not concern financial dishonesty but does concern a woman of childbearing age; and
    The postman, who shaves with a cut-throat razor, went to Tenerife for his last holiday.

Is it possible to find out if the license fee payer did pay for this super injunction ? That would be a disgrace of course and Marr should be made to refund the money.

I was merely pointing out that the idea of media omerta around this story (which Fawkes’ original post was about) does not stand up to any logical examination.

    Come on Handycock. You gave us the name of the girl in court. Might as well come clean and let us know just how old she was when the kissing and cuddling started.

Dan Hodges on Labour unity
