Three Piggies Wanted Court Reporting Banned

The Supreme Court will rule today as to whether or not the former MPs Elliot Morley, David Chaytor and Jim Devine are going to face criminal charges – lower Courts have ruled they can not hide behind ‘parliamentary privilege’. The public will be unaware that there was a prohibition on live reporting based on the Court feed. The media were only permitted to report any opening remarks made by Lord Phillips and the first 5 minutes of the opening submissions made by counsel for the appellants, Mr Nigel Pleming QC, and counsel for the Crown, Lord Pannick QC. Otherwise, there was no television or radio broadcasting of the proceedings.

The Court had indicated that it expected the media to provide “responsible reporting” of the proceedings. The Attorney-General sent a note to the MSM in June reminding editors about taking care in how they reported these hearings and in particular reminded them to avoid publishing reports that implied the MPs were guilty. The MSM won’t even report that the lifting of reporting restrictions were opposed by the MPs.

Guido will say so, and say it shows they want to wash their dirty linen in secret…
