+++ Nigel Griffiths Loses Screws Injunction Fight +++

Get the News of the Screws tomorrow – a High Court judge has today backed the  paper after it revealed Nigel Griffiths MP had sex in the House of Commons. Griffiths tried to gag the newspaper from publishing further details about his drunken sexual frolics. Given the outrageous situation with creeping Judge-made privacy precedents,  today’s was an important decision, Mr Justice King agreed the Screws should be free to expose Griffith’s frolics. He also added, that the Griffiths was ‘economical with the truth’.

“The paper should be free to put the record straight as to what the Claimant said in response to the article. I accept there is a legitimate interest of the public in the way MPs use access to offices that they get as a result of their public office. There is a right to prevent the public from being significantly mislead. At the very least, he was being economical with the truth.”

To be clear, Griffiths lied publicly and also issued an extremely misleading statement.  That the Parliamentary Commissioner has also failed to investigate means that as far as parliament is concerned, “Honourable” Members can film drunken porno sessions in the Mother of Parliaments without any sanction.

Sunday Sleaze should be fun tomorrow…
