Denied Day in Court

So after Guido having instructed solicitor Robert Dougans of Bryan Cave to formally submit a Witness Statement to Lord Justice Leveson, as so compelled under threat of imprisonment, Lord Justice Leveson now says he is discharging Guido from appearing tomorrow. Well Guido had a lot to say.

It is almost as if they are embarrassed at the string of cock-ups. First of all no crime has been committed. The evidence was not restricted until after it was published. Some might think that an inquiry into matters like press hacking and privacy should be careful to protect itself from press leaks.

Alastair Campbell went from “shocked” on Sunday at his draft evidence leaking to the media to explaining this morning that actually he had emailed his dodgy document to a few journalists, politicians and friends. How shocking to discover that there was no WMD it leaked.

So all that dark guff about the Leveson Inquiry’s computer security being compromised turned out to be rubbish and Alastair Campbell is shown to be a disingenuous manipulator, again. Oh, and under the terms of the Restriction Order Guido is not allowed to tell you what he was going to tell the judge in his Witness Statement tomorrow. Suffice to say Guido was refusing point blank to reveal his source’s name. Maybe Guido should just email it to a few close journalist friends…
