Any thoughts on the D-Notice calling for a media blackout?

 

 

All UK news sources being forced to take down stories, edit stories and not report on either the arrest of Tommy or the Court Procedings where the Muslim/Pakistani grooming gangs case was being finalised.

Its completely illegal to report anything about this case so you might be getting a dawn raid from the boys in blue .

So much for freedom of speech...  Whether you agree with the man or not, he is entitled to an opinion.  Smells like a PC type stitch up to me.

How they think they can keep this all secret in the age of the internet is a mystery . Its a sad day when you have to depend on Alex Jones or Fox news to find out what is happening in our own country .

Freedom of speech does not entitle you to live stream anything from inside a court building that may compromise the case in question. He already has a court order for doing this, hence his arrest for the repeat offence.

He was not in a court building and he said nothing that was not already in the public domain . Do you think its normal to be arrested charged convicted and sent to jail in under 2 hours and then to have a blanket gagging order on the whole thing . He will probably be killed as the jail he has been sent to is full of people who want him dead . There is a petition to free him which has got half a million signatures in under 24 hours .

How the hell does anybody manage to do that. If its a public hearing its all in the public domain immediately, so streaming anything doesn't let anybody know anything they'd not be equally able to go and find out for themselves as soon by attending. If its a private hearing, nobody should be attending it other than Court appointed or sanctioned people, not random jurnos.

Censoring Sinn Fein didn't work (you would have thought Big Brother would have learnt their lesson from that) so why they think press reporting on a trial and gagging the media is going to work beats me; it's like taking a sledgehammer to a hazelnut because it doesn't work.  It doesn't matter what anyone's opinions are on Tommy but to me, the whole thing stinks.  He wasn't inciting racism.  He wasn't interfering with a court case; hell, the jury had already been selected.

 

The Defendants were effing and blinding at him, stating what they were gonna do to his mum - were they charged too with a public order offence or are they above the law?  Complaints can be made to the relevant police authority if you have any faith in the system, that is.

^ Leaving aside the specifics of this case, I'm still struggling to see how anybody not directly involved in a trail can 'put a trial in jeopardy', IF the judge and jury are doing their jobs properly and following instructions properly, and if they're not, they have no business being in those roles.

 

Disrupt and delay a trial, yes, very possibly, but make it fail completely. I'm not seeing it.

 

That aside, with modern technology 'reporting restrictions' are farcical and the courts need to try and catch up with the times, if they can. Long gone are the days that all the judge needed to do was instruct the press attending not to report on anything until a verdict was reached, and it was pretty much a done deal. Now-a-days any Tom, Dick or Harry can publish or broadcast just about anything to the whole world in real time, and before any court realised it was happening let alone figured out who was doing it, the horse would be long since bolted.

 

To briefly touch on the specific case, you have to ask yourself, if this had been Caucasians on trial for the same thing, and a Muslim had behaved in the way this Robinson character has, would the outcome have been identical? In a fair and just society, the answer would obviously be 'Yes', however, I have significant doubts that would be the answer in ours right now.

He's not been 'stitched up' at all.

 

He knew what he was doing.

 

He knows exactly why he's been arrested despite the staged innocent blustering.

 

There is no other agenda here apart from that of the EDL thug.

 

Well done the courts for jumping on him and good riddance.
