£500,000 Expenses Fraudster MEP Jailed

skinner peter

Remember Peter Skinner, the Labour MEP who clocked up £500,000 on “expenses” while enjoying a lifestyle of lavish Hawaiian scuba diving holidays, expensive jewellery, and stays in top class hotels? The crook was jailed today for four years. He claimed he had simply been confused about the EU’s generous expenses rules. Brussels is rotten to the core…

Alleged Granny Basher MP in Court Today

Labour MP Marie Rimmer, accused of kicking an elderly Indy campaigner during the Scottish referendum, is in court for the first day of her trial. She denies the charges. Will Labour have to suspend another MP if the jury don’t believe her?

Blundering BBC Broadcast Hillsborough Verdict

BBC REDACTED hillsborough

The jury at the three year-long Hillsborough inquest have reached a majority verdict, which cannot be reported until 11am tomorrow morning. So it’s a pretty major blooper for the BBC to broadcast that verdict in their headline caption, redacted by Guido in the above image. Here is the Beeb reporter outside the court pretending not to know the result and explaining why they should not have put it up on the screen:

Potentially in contempt of court…

Still Awaiting Celebrity Threesome Injunction Decision

supreme court

PJS -v- News Group Newspapers Ltd

21 April 2016

On appeal from the Court of Appeal Civil Division (England and Wales)

At the end of the hearing on 21st April the Supreme Court announced that it would reserve judgment and give its decision at a later date.

The injunction granted by the Court of Appeal and continued by this Court remains in force.

No decision yet. One thing appears to have been accepted by both parties in the Supreme Court without challenge – that this website is outside the jurisdiction of the English Courts. Which is what Guido told Leveson, Carter-Ruck and various learned rent-a-quotes

Celebrity Threesome Injunction Decision on Thursday

sc

The Supreme Court will hear argument as to whether permission to appeal should be granted, and, if it is granted, as to whether the appeal should be allowed or dismissed. The interim injunction granted by the Court of Appeal will remain in place until the conclusion of the Supreme Court hearing, and at the end of the hearing the Supreme Court will decide whether to continue that injunction. Until then…

Injunction to Be Lifted Pending Appeal

elton

The injunction has been lifted but the names can not yet be published pending appeal. The gagging order remains in place until Wednesday 1pm…

UPDATE: The judge adds:

“The court should not make orders which are ineffective. It is inappropriate for the court to ban people from saying that which is common knowledge. Knowledge of the relevant matters is now so widespread that confidentiality has probably been lost.”

Irish Times Breaks Celebrity Threesome Injunction

See also: Lawyers Only People Enjoying ThreesomeNow David Furnish and Elton John Threaten Google

Untitled-1

Yesterday Guido gave an interview* to the Irish Times about the Celebrity Threesome Injunction. Lawyers Carter Ruck claim this article and others, despite being typed and uploaded in Ireland to be hosted on servers in the United States protected by the First Amendment, breaches their injunction covering England and Wales.

The injunction is incredibly restrictive; it not only prohibits reporting the facts of the matter, it prohibits linking to the story, identifying the National Enquirer or this site in any way. Which is why the British press is referring to a mystery “top blogger” and Google has been forced to remove links to our articles. The Irish Times however identifies the “top blogger”, names this website and even handily gives the headline to cut and paste into Google to easily find the censored article. Not really a legal issue for a foreign printed publication.

However as the photo above shows, the international edition of the Irish Times was freely available in London. It is printed at the Newsfax plant in Hackney…
