You must obey gagging orders! Talking about them means: your BBC Posting has been removed :(

There is a good article by Parliamentary correspondent Mark D’Arcy on this BBC site News UK Politics about Parliamentary privilege, MPs and super-injunctions. 

The suggestion is to

draw clear lines in the sand between the courts and Parliament and set out what the rules should be for the media, too.

But what our parliamentarians are allowed to say, and the extent to which it can be reported, is more than just a techie issue for Westminster nerds…

Indeed. That’s why I wrote:

As a blogger and online activist, I have the ‘privilege’ of being hit by one “Injunction Order” from a Council in Wales regarding the Stealing of Baby Harley [http://bit.ly/dHqMvQ] and the Reporting Restriction Order regarding Vicky Haigh where the gag was removed. http://bit.ly/k6cEeU 

The blog hosting company WordPress effectively forces me to take Councils to court so that I can blog…

Well, on Monday I shall attempt to get the Reporting Restriction Order removed in Court.
