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?

Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
