Super-injunctions, Twitter and Gagging the Press (and bloggers)

One has to ask what’s the big difference between a journalist being paid to write for The Mainstream Press and bloggers writing because it pleases them.

This question arises particularly when I read here:

Most recently, there was a piece in the “Independent” claiming that, over the past 5 years, “333 gagging orders protecting the identities of celebrities, children and private individuals have been granted in the past five years“. 

However, 264 of these orders related to children and vulnerable adults and only 69 were injunctions which barred the publication of the names of high-profile individuals – that is, 14 a year or just slightly more than one a month.

Remember that I have been gagged by two Councils from sharing details about their cases of snatching children from their parents.

First they commit crimes. Then the get the judiciary to sanction their crimes. And then the victims and anybody who wants to help are being prevented from screaming. Long live ‘law and order’!!!
