Secretive Marr in Action

As Labourlist point out, here’s Andrew Marr in action, while using the courts to keep discussion of his own life off of the television and out of the papers:

The politics of that story aside, Marr was not the right person to be seeking the truth. Was the BBC officially aware of the conflict of interest?

    Heard Ian Hislop interviewed on the Toady programme about the Marr super-injunction; it seems that Private Eye had much to do with the legal challenge to said injunction.

    I’m slowly developing a cautious respect for Hislop. Despite the slightly scurrilous nature of the Eye, he does seem to be one of the more insightful and straightforward of the current crop of MSM journos.

        He also presented a couple of series about Victorian achievements on’t box which I felt had rather more depth than most such televisual offerings.

        As for HIGNFY, on the few occasions that I do bother to watch it, Hislop does seem to be equally rude about all political stripes – he does seem better balanced than most of the BBC’s so-called comedians.

        Did Hislop actually talk some sense about super-injunctions and how parliament are bone idol about sorting the issue out once and for all?

          The problem is – it is no good Call Me Dave stating that this is a matter for Parliament when he, and his predecssors, have failed to do anything about them. The judges are merely filling the vacuum created by our idiot politicians. They can hardly complain about them in the light of their complete failure to act.

      I wish the Eye were scurrilous. These days it is far too close to aspects of the Establishment, for instance with its pandering the public-sector union members and its ultra-safe political jokes.

    Has anyone else noticed that the Guardian – that standard bearer of the fight against outrageous super injunctions – somehow neglects to mention that the Mrs Marr who presumably agreed with her errant husband’s decision to gag the media, is in fact one of their own leading columnists?

If we can’t even have a royal wedding in our own country without a bunch of stinking bearded fucks shouting abuse, then we might as well call it a day. What the fuck’s the point of armed royal guards if they’re not going to take action? Gunning down a few of these muzbot c unts will send a message that we won’t put up with their shit anymore and will prevent more of these benefit scrounging c unts coming over here.
