Dear All,

As you know, this is John's last day as ST editor, so he 
would like to invite anyone who is still here after the 
first edition is put to bed to come by his office and have 
a farewell drink. It's also a chance to celebrate the 
appointment of Martin as the new Obergruppenfuhrer 
(kommissarisch).

Ivens surely isn’t that right-wing…

    “Difficult to believe someone who is gagging the press is innocent. An innocent would want everything to be transparent!!”

      Hopefully we will all keep quiet to avoid giving his counsel an opportunity to state the trial has been prejudiced.

        Now let me ‘see’ – If anyone has done their damndest to aid Monsieur ***** to get off of the charges re: Prejudice – don’t all roads lead to the UK’s (so called) ‘free press’ and isn’t it a trick that they use so often to help a politician / fellow / brother or two in distress?

        There is one big question / issue about the use of the ‘contempt of court act’ and that is that it seems to favour erring politicos, legals, media moguls, coppers, hacks and that sort – over the little members of the public – now why would that be?

        If any old Joe Public – has caught out and stood to make monkeys out of the Cops, CPS and a couple of Criminal Court Judges – well wouldn’t that be a thing – for the free press to publish … Or perhaps not!?

    How does the Times website manage to be ‘website of the year’ when it’s locked behind a paywall and hardly anyone sees it?

    “Ivens surely isn’t that right-wing…”

    If that’s referring to the “Martin as the new Obergruppenfuhrer (kommissarisch)” comment, you are aware the Nazis were left wing, aren’t you?

Douglas Carswell’s side-kick Dan Hannan MEP pours water on the obvious question:

“I won’t be joining UKIP, though I wish Douglas Carswell all the best. He has been a superb MP, and it’s honourable to stand for re-election.”



Owen Jones says:

We also need Zil lanes.
