Police have been accused of an 'Orwellian' attempt to silence a man who said he was harassed by Britain's youngest magistrate.Hmm, I wonder what legal validity such a statement would have...? And what effect the involvement of Denis McShane and Austin Mitchell will have in getting to the truth about this bizarre partisanship shown by West Yorkshire Police?
In what was viewed by politicians last night as an attack on the freedom of speech, detectives made him sign a statement promising not talk to the Press about the case - after details appeared in The Mail on Sunday.
Still, it's nice to know the police can turn up for some harassment cases (albeit on the side of the harrasser rather than harrassee...). Pity they aren't so quick to act in others.
