Ireland is Not North Korea, Kim El John

nk-df-ej

All around the world the olive oil trysts of Elton John’s husband David Furnish are being reported, everywhere, apart from England and Wales where they are injuncted. Guido’s servers are in the United States of America, this article is being typed in the Republic of Ireland. London solicitors Carter Ruck have sent a copy of that injunction to Guido threatening to jail the editor for Contempt of Court. This was met with a polite invitation to come visit:

I note this is a Court Order from a British court.

In Ireland, as I explained to Lord Justice Leveson at his inquiry, Irish citizens do not have to pay any notice to what British judges order any more.

We are currently celebrating the 1916 uprising, come visit Dublin. If you do, please do not repeat the ex parte trick your firm pulled in 2008 on behalf of Zac Goldsmith. Remember how that ended in an embarrassing fiasco for your firm? You had to apologise to me and an Irish High Court judge.

This time I expect full and properly served notice to be given of any action you propose to take going forward.

Regards,

Paul

Some fool lawyer in The Times this morning claims that this blog is published everywhere in the world where it can be read. So presumably she thinks the North Koreans, Chinese and Iranians have legal jurisdiction over this website – as if Kim El John can suppress foreign press reports. There are no physical assets in the UK, there is no digital equivalent of a printing press, no device that can be seized or smashed. All the authorities can do is block access to the server, in the same way that China and Iran block access to the truth. Web users point their browsers at a server in the US and fetch the data back, we do not store published content in the UK.

Carter-Ruck have now instructed Johnsons, a Dublin law firm, and are threatening proceedings here in Ireland, which if they were to happen we would endeavour to fight. Courts in both California and New York have ruled that foreign court judgments involving free speech can be enforced in the United States only if the foreign nation recognises absolute free speech values compatible with the First Amendment – which guarantees that Congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press. Guido may have to travel to the US to inspect this website’s servers…

Quote of the Day

Paul Dacre on the Daily Mail’s future support for Brexit…

“…what moves me most are the countless messages from readers worried about whether the Mail will continue its support for EU withdrawal. My answer to them — and others — is unequivocal. Support for Brexit is in the DNA of both the Daily Mail and, more pertinently, its readers. Any move to reverse this would be editorial and commercial suicide.”
