Lawcast 155: The Guardian Gag affair with Carl Gardner – Charon QC

Posted October 14th, 2009 in freedom of expression, injunctions, internet, media, parliament, podcasts by sally

“Today I am talking to Carl Gardner, ex government lawyer, a barrister and author of The Head of Legal blog. We look at whether the Bill of Rights has, in fact, been infringed by the gag, the use of injunctions generally and specifically in this instance, the use of parliamentary privilege and whether the judges are going too far in granting injunctions which can, effectively, be destroyed in their effect by many thousands of angry people on twitter and in the blogosphere.”
