Loose Lips Sink Ships Magistrates...

Police have been accused of an 'Orwellian' attempt to silence a man who said he was harassed by Britain's youngest magistrate.

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.
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?

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.

Ah, again our representative from the chattering classes gives their view from the capital.

By standing on the sidelines, puffing up yourself with irony and cleverness, you're just like 5000 other wannabe politicos, up yourself and (in your case) a paper predator.

Do something real and get involved !

Nice to know that, in its opinion, I'm a 'representative from the chattering classes'..!
