Saturday Seven Up

7upThe blog has been busy at the forefront of breaking news this week, leading on two front-page issues: Huhne and super-injunctions. On Monday we were the first to exclusively reveal where Vicky Pryce was on that fateful night in March 2003, pipping Michael Crick to be first to pixel. On Tuesday our poll of over 4,549 readers revealed that 96% thought Chris Huhne was lying.

Wednesday morning economic data released showed the unemployment rate falling, we suggested Ed Balls go back to the drawing board. PMQs was rowdy, Aidan Burley MP asked the PM to back Guido’s campaign against “Union Pilgrims”, the taxpayer-funded union organisers paid to agitate full-time instead of doing their frontline public sector jobs. Thursday marked Day 11 of the Huhne speeding story, the point where Alastair Campbell says the game is up.

Thursday we outed the doctor who has appeared in political adverts for Miliband, Brown, Sadiq Khan and Tony Blair. Friday was super-injunction day again, we named the billionaire who has muzzled Britain’s press and laughed at Ryan Giggs for being the fall guy for Schillings, the lawyers who more than any other firm have brought the law into disrepute. For good measure we revealed that the Shadow Chancellor’s political adviser had failed to declare his financial interests in breach of parliament’s rules.

Last week saw 97,086 visitors make 298,256 visits to view 467,784 pages. Thanks to you we’re Britain’s favourite blog, the one you love and they hate. The top stories last week in order of popularity were:

You’re either in front of Guido, or you are behind…

          ‘Yesterday one of the UK’s most senior judges said that modern technology is out of control. It’s not. It’s just out of his control and the control of his cronies who uphold justice and equality for anyone who can afford their fees.’

          This comment was posted on another site, I agree wholeheartedly. The ability of technology to allow freedom of speech in a manner that cannot be restrained by the rich and powerful could well prove to be the salvation of nations and our planet.

          By exposing the bunch of miscreants and leeches that collude with financial puppet masters and powerbrokers to undermine the very basis of our society, platforms such as o-o.com and Twitter perform a vital and critical role.

          By enabling people to band together and mobilize their energy in a concerted effort, such services allow a far better coordination and more convenient method of communicating peoples’ objection than has ever existed before.

          No wonder judges and other figures of the establishment are nervous. For the first time in our history they themselves can be tried in an open and incorruptible court of the public choosing. They have nowhere to hide, and no influence.

          This is democracy! Not the elitist system the establishment strives to protect and protect. The revolution starts here, and they know it… I have always dreamed the internet could provide hope through communication. Now I’m seeing it.

            Watched a cracking documentary the other day, Capitalism: A Love Story (Michael Moore). One outstanding moment was when a brave congressman, in the face of the ‘vote’ to pass $700 billion aid to the poor old banks (who had used their power to bully, threaten and intimidate the entire congress), turned around and said to the chairman, ‘Is this the United States congress or the board of directors of Goldman Sachs?’

            It all sounded sadly familiar…

            PS. Agree the point DtP, there should be intense vetting. Only difficulty is that those ‘vetting’ are largely as bent as those they select.

    OT

    Perhaps I’m being fick here but can any legal types answer me this: If some spotty celeb takes out a super injunction, I’m presuming that the press are told of it because they are not allowed to report the fact that the injunction exists, never mind the reason behind it. How does that work? Is there some ‘network’ at play? Which leads me to the next bit: Since I am not part of that ‘network’, if I hear the ‘story’ down the pub and publish it on a blog, if I didn’t know there was a super injunction in place, how would I know not to publish the story on a blog? Guido, how do you find out super injunctions exist – are you told officially, or from ‘sources’ in newsrooms?

      Ta, both.

      As a follow up: One reporter at one paper gets hold of a story, doorsteps the celeb; celeb gets a super injunction. ‘Network’ comes into play, all the other papers, ‘official’ media in general, now know not only an injunction exists (which they must not mention to us, the great unwashed) but presumably the details, even in their barest form – particularly the names of those involved (otherwise how would they know which ‘story’ not to publish). One person knew, now everyone in the ‘media’ knows. How is that ‘protecting someone’s privacy’ when several thousand people now know the story as a direct result of the injunction? And those several thousand are also telling several thousand others over a pint, and so on. I presume a super injunction can only be imposed if the story is true (otherwise it’s up to libel laws?), so therefore the first several thousand know its true, and can tell their mates that’s the case. And so on.

    French politicians can apparently misbehave to the extent of flagrantly breaking the law, with impunity and silence from the French press.

    What this means is that French politicians are unsuitable for international posts such as head of the IMF because the French Government elite will always have the inside information to influence the IMF to act in France’s best interests and against the interests of others.

      This guy needs to sack his legal advisers and refuse to pay their bill…who the hell advised him to try and sue “Twitter” which has no offices in the UK and can just tell the UK courts to “take a running jump”…if they think that the US Courts are going to take any notice of this attempt which runs counter to their Constitution then the best of luck…let’s hope he has better luck on the field than in the courts…by attempting to sue Twitter he’s gone global…both Twitter and the “Net” are buzzing with his name…from nobody apart from him,his mistress and his missis needing to know or care he’s just made the whole World aware of his indiscretions…what a “plonker” …….still a nice little earner for “M’Learned Friends”

        If you can find an honest solicitor (or better still one who’s heavily drunk) they will tell you that the longer and louder they can make a case, the more money they make. Win, loose or draw they get paid for every letter or breath they take ‘on your behalf’. I actually know of solicitors, who upon taking over an old case, turned around and told their new client that the client’s previous legal team had just milked them for hundreds of thousands whilst doing a piss poor job of representing them…

    Once a Huhne,always a Huhne !!

    Under fire Cabinet minister Chris Huhne was under fresh pressure today following the disclosure that he faces a complaint about his general election expenses.

    Two former Liberal Democrat councillors in the Energy Secretary’s Eastleigh constituency in Hampshire have submitted a formal complaint to the official elections watchdog alleging he made a “false declaration” of his expenses.

    The allegation is based on a recording of a local party meeting where treasurer Anne Winstanley is heard saying that the elections “have cost more than we declared”.

    Mr Huhne strongly denied the charge, insisting his expenses were in order. Aides said he was confident the claims would be dismissed, arguing that they were was based on a misunderstanding of was said at the meeting.

    However the confirmation by the Electoral Commission that it has received an official complaint will only intensify the pressure he currently faces.

    Drop one of them in it and you get cut out of the loop.

    Igor, Baron Judge PC, Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales, has become even a bigger joke than Mervyn Griffith-Jones who invited the jury in the Penguin Books/Lady Chatterley obscenity trial, in 1960, to consider whether the novel was something “you would even wish your wife or servants to read”. Griffith-Jones has long been cited as representing the extent to which the “British Establishment” had become out of touch with popular opinion of that time. Half a century later, Lord Judge has elevated this disjuncture to a new level.

    popcorn popcorn , gedda de popcorn its a progress confernece to be headlined by a Edward Miliband, roll up roll up , in it Ed will try and say , uh oh ,you know we got a few things wrong , but labour can offer people a less pessimistic future (still with a load of debt , but less pessamistic ). Moneys on he comes across as Harry Enfields “tory boy” characture trying to pull a fast one .

    Just for the record ,perfect set of books in 97 to biggest bust is one achievement ,but it wasnt just banking collapse it was off balance sheet debts , departmental debts and unfunded public sector pensions all of which Labour crowed about as success , when all they did was live it up for 13yrs and leave a 10yr bill to pay for it .

    I appreciate they are using this special moment to draw a line under it , but they are still lying about what they did .
    I would like to know just how many people would be in employment if 50% of the banking sectore had not been nationalised and 28bn had not been racked up in MOD , there has to be a figure as to how many jobs Labours goverment debt has cost .
