It is quite extraordinary to read, see and hear what “they” do to Maurice Kirk.
But he is not alone. A simple joke on Twitter got the legal establishment going to prosecute a young man who subsequently got a criminal record and lost two jobs: “Crap! Robin Hood Airport is closed. You’ve got a week… otherwise I’m blowing the airport sky high!”
However, David Allen Green is a media and communications lawyer in the City who blogs ‘liberally’ and ‘critically’. He got involved in the Twitter case. He finds that common sense or ‘proportion’ should have been respected.
But which judge would admit to it???
