What Newscorp executives get up to given half a chance, No. 47,309

What ailes Murdoch  intimate Roger?

Roger Ailes has been running Rupert Murdoch’s Fox News since God was a girl. According to The New York Magazine, he is also effectively ‘the head of the Republican Party, having employed five prospective presidential candidates and done perhaps more than anyone to alter the balance of power in the national media in favor of the Republicans’. Yes, it’s another episode of How Murdoch Really runs Everything.... read more..

HACKGATE DAY 130: Prescott turns the heat up on the MET !

No officer, I will not come quietly….”
Why hacking, blagging, taping, spam, social media, marketing, blogging, sensationalism, corruption, denial and injunctions are merely different colours on a spectrum of control

Late last night as I went to bed, it felt like the world was going to drown in news. Panorama produced a devastating expose not just of Sepp Blatter and the crooks around him, but also of the police and political classes being utterly useless and generally disinterested in the idea of tackling it…..except in Switzerland, where FIFA is based.

Lord Prescott won a Parliamentary review of Met police performance during its first two goes at clumsily covering up getting to the bottom of Newscorp criminality.

Be under no illusions: this is a game-changer, because not only will it reveal the extent of Met complicity in Newscorp’s hacking fest, it may also reveal that senior legislators were having their phones monitored not just for commercial gain by the papers concerned,  but also perhaps for the political advantage of what was, at the time, Her Majesty’s Opposition.....read more

A Free and Independent Internet will soon be no more...

God knows how many times I’ve blogged about (a) the future of the Net NOT being 8 billion bloggers, and (b) why the Threebies – Big Barbarian Beasts – will take over in order to make it censorious and give it an agenda.

But the evidence is all around us that the process is accelerating at an alarming rate.

Ian Dale has gone. Anna Raccoon has retired hurt. Guido gets the odd great scoop, but on the whole he’s become an online media-buying house, and doyen of the hard, vaguely anarchic Right. And as the blogging fad reaches its nadir, so too the control-freaks (sporting grey suits, thick necks and bizarre bigotry) are buying their way in.

Newsweek has bagged The Daily Beast, and – infamously – Arianna Huffington has sold out (in every sense) to the weird AOL cult. Huffpost was one of the last bastions of eclectic opinion and open-minded comment-thread management. Now – as The Slog discovered quite quickly – threaders either toe the Party line, or get banned.

Equally shameful is the decision by Steve Jobs to do a tablet deal with Newscorp, an arrangement that will see Rupert Murdoch’s News online portal getting massive access to all kinds of lucrative niches.

You only have to read the output of The Sun and the New York Daily Post to grasp what an infestation of paid-for Murbollochs Newscorp online will be…..if it survives the UK Hackgate scandal, which I increasingly doubt...read more

Super-injunction : Tony Blair and the alleged allegations...

Anthony Charles Lynton Blair(Tony Blair,former PM of the UK)

Anthony Charles Lynton Blair(Tony Blair,former PM of the UK)

He was charged and appeared in court at Bow Street magistrates court for importunity in a public toilet with another male. He tried to get sexual favour from the other man, little did he know that the toilet was being watched by police. Blair was fined £500, and walked away with nobody knowing who he really was as he used his middle names to cover who he was. Charles Lynton is the name used, and his friends in court got him off with a fine, because he is one of them.

Un-named footballer sues anonymous twitterer for saying Ryan Giggs had an affair !!!!

Today a soccer player, who may or may not be Ryan Giggs (we have no idea!), filed a lawsuit against Twitter, because one of its users reported that Ryan Giggs had an affair.

Why this footballer would be suing, we have no idea, unless they're upset that it was reported that Ryan Giggs had an affair.

And for them to have a legal basis for the suit, the Tweeted information must be from the injuncted documents. So when someone says that Ryan Giggs had an affair, Ryan Giggs would have had to have an affair for this unnamed footballer (maybe Ryan Giggs) to bring a suit in the first place.

It's unclear how our reporting of others' reporting that Ryan Giggs had an affair fits in here.

 As an American site writing that Ryan Giggs had an affair, we're probably not subject to British media law. But even so, we're not saying that we've discovered that Ryan Giggs had an affair: only that some people are saying that Ryan Giggs had an affair, and that one Twitter user says Ryan Giggs had an affair, and that some soccer player is suing over people saying that Ryan Giggs had an affair.

At press time, Ryan Giggs had not returned our request for comment.

Super-injunctions: Footballer sues TWITTER


HACKGATE DAY 125: Sensation as Jude Law’s QC names senior Newscorp executive as ‘clearly implicated’ in scandal

Jude Law’s QC Hugh Tomlinson

Breaking news….in a hearing before Justice Vos this morning, hacking victim Jude Law’s QC Hugh Tomlinson told the open Court that “from the paperwork we have seen” relating to Glenn Mulcaire’s notebooks, “[senior exec's name] was clearly implicated in much of the hacking that took place”.

In a desperate bid to shore up the dam, Newscorp’s QC Michael Silverleaf disputed the claim, and insisted that Mr Law’s case should not be among the first civil cases to be heard.

But Justice Vos disagreed, ruling that Jude Law’s case will be in the ‘first wave’ of cases to come before him.

Apart from Law, the full list of cases in that opening sequence will be Kelly Hoppen, Chris Bryat MP, Sky Andrew and Andy Gray.

Doubtless more details will emerge in due course. Favourites are looking like Andy Coulson or Rebekah Wade,  but they may at this stage be at the level below that.

Either way, this case is slipping away from Newscorp: it is now a matter of when, not if.

Guido Fawkes: Lord Neuberger and his super-injunction!

Super-Injunction Muzzling the Press

Lord Neuberger, the Master of the Rolls, whose report on super-injunctions is out today, will help determine if Britain is to have a free press or not in the future.
Lakshmi Mittal is the richest man in Britain, he has given the Labour Party £2 million in donations. Since 2008 it has been an offence punishable by imprisonment to even say he has a super-injunction. Why? What is it about? You shall not know. Editors fear his wealth and the wrath of judges. Do we really want a country where journalists fear imprisonment for writing the truth?

MURDOCH'S News Corps behind the BOTOX hoax mum...?

(NewsCore) - SAN FRANCISCO -- A mom who made international headlines when she claimed to have injected her eight-year-old daughter with Botox now maintains she made the whole story up in return for cash, TMZ reported Thursday.

Kerry Campbell, 34, sparked uproar when she told media outlets how she used the cosmetic procedure to help her daughter Britney compete in beauty pageants.

But the mom, who now says her real name is Sheena Upton, has told TMZ she never injected her daughter with Botox and was simply paid to say so.

Her sudden about-turn comes after Child Protective Services in San Francisco, where British-born Upton now lives, launched an investigation and removed the child from her custody.

Upton said she was encouraged by British newspaper The Sun to go along with the story in exchange for the equivalent of $200.

The Sun refuted Upton's claims, however, insisting the story came from a reputable news agency and that the newspaper never had any direct contact with her.

"The Sun strongly denies any suggestion it solicited or knowingly published a false story regarding Kerry Campbell and her daughter," said a spokeswoman.

"The article was published in good faith, in common with a large number of other news organizations around the world, after being received in full from a reputable UK news agency."

Upton also said she was promised large fees for interviews on ABC's "Good Morning America" and CBS' "Inside Edition."

Posing as Campbell in May, Upton appeared with her daughter on the ABC morning show. "It hurts and I get used to it," the young daughter said. "It looks way better, like beautiful, pretty."

"It's safe, I have no problem with doing it ... I'm a great mother," her mom added.

Following the intervention of Child Protective Services, Upton released a sworn statement Thursday saying the story was completely false.

"I was provided with the story, instructions and a script to follow for a recorded interview for [a] paid fee. I received $200 for that story."

A spokesman for ABC News said they were "vigorously investigating" Upton's claims.

"'Good Morning America' has repeatedly questioned Upton, members of her family, and other sources who again and again stood by the Botox story," the company added in a statement.

The Sun is owned by News Corp., the parent company of NewsCore.

Super injunction: Gaspar statement not mentioned in Kates book...

Why super injunctions?

The argument for the super injunction is that it allows someone to stop the media publishing a story that is private and not in the public interest to be known.

And there we have it in a nutshell. This week Kate McCann has accused the Potuguese police of covering up the sex abuse of five children. This information from Kate is certainly in the publics interest.  I hope Kate has names and details

Moving on,  can a super injunction be placed on police evidence that is available online to the public and certainly in the publics interest? a good question that needs answering.

The McCanns want our help while at the same time suppressing  information that would certainly sway public opinion if it were to become known. 
Is it in the publics interest to know Kate could no longer 'take her pleasure' with her husband ? No, so happy to have a super on that.

Is it in the publics interest to know Kate pictures Madeleines genitals torn apart ? Yes, this in in the publics interest because her husband, Madeleines father, as the following video reveals, filmed  roughly  six days after Madeleines 'disappearance'  (without his knowledge) shows no such concerns.

Is the GASPAR statement in the publics interest, absolutely and will this be mentioned in Kates 'account of the truth' ? absolutely not. The statement itself may be of no importance, a red herring, a mother with an over active imagination BUT thats not the problem as Kate and Gerry know only too well.

The implication for them is devastating, for it is they themselves who have initiated the ugly word paedophile and there in that statement is a suggestion of paedophilia amongst their group of friends when Madeleine disappeared.


Last Name: GASPAR


Age: +18

Date of Birth:


Postal Code:


Telephone no.:

Date of Testimony: 16/05/2007

Number of Pages: 8

I give this declaration in relation to the McCANN family who are currently in Portugal. The McCANN family is composed of Gerry McCANN, his wife, Kate McCANN and their three children, Madeleine, age 4, and Sean and Amelie, who are twins and 3 years of age.

As is abundantly clear, Madeleine is not with her family presently, and has been missing for the last two weeks.

I will begin by explaining that I am married to Savio Gaspar and that we have two daughters. Ellen is almost 3 and Isabella is now one year old. I have been married to Savior for 11 years. I am a general practitioner as is my husband. I met my husband when we were (page 1) working together in Exeter, around 14 years ago.

In order to explain how we know the McCANN family, I would like to state that my husband knows Kate as both attended Dundee University between 1987 and 1992. At that time, she was Kate HEALY. I met Kate and Gerry at their wedding, in 1998, in Liverpool. Both Savio and I went to the wedding. As Savio was Kate’s friend, we were invited to the event.

From what I know, Savio did not know Gerry before the wedding. After this time, we became friends and about three times we spent weekend vacations together. I would say that we are intimate friends of Gerry and Kate.

I remember that in 2002 or 2003, Savio and I spent the weekend with Gerry and Kate in Devon. We maintained contact with one another via telephone.

In 2002/2003 Savio and I lived Birmingham and the McCANNS in Leciester.

In September of 2005, Savio, myself and Ellena, who at the time was 1 and a half years old, spent our holidays abroad, in Mallorca. We went (page 2) on holidays with Kate, Gerry, and Madeleine, who should have been around 21/2 years old, and the twins, who were only months old. I remember that I was pregnancy with Isabella.

On those holidays we also met Gerry and Kate’s friends.

There was a couple, whose names were Dave and Fiona, and whose family name was PAYNE, I think. I believe that they were married and had one daughter, 1 year old, called Lilly. I remember that on these holidays, Fiona was pregnant.

There was another couple, whose names were Tara and Stuart, and whose family name I cannot remember who were also on holiday with us. They had two boys, 1 and 3 years old, whose names I do not remember. I did not know these two families until the holidays together. As I recall, I think that David organised the holidays and we all stayed together in a big house in Mallorca.

We spend a week on holidays, however, the McCANN family, and the PAYNE family stayed for two weeks. I think that Tara and Stuart, and their two children, also stayed for only one week.

Two or three days passed in Mallorca where we relaxed (Page 3) with our children. Possibly around the fourth or fifth day abroad, I remember an incident that stayed with me. I tell this in this way, and afterwards I have thought many times about the incident that I am about to describe.One night, on holidays, the adults—the couple aforementioned—were on a patio on the side of the house were we lodged. We had been eating and drinking.

I was seated between David and Gerry who were both speaking about Madeleine. I don’t remember the conversation in its entirety, but id did appear they were discussing a possible scenario. I remember David telling Gerry something like “she” (referring to Madeleine) “would she do this”.

Upon mentioning “this”, David was sucking on one of his fingers, pushing it inside and outside his mouth, and with the other hand encircled his breast in a gyrating fashion over his shirt. This was done in a provocative manner and carried an explicit insinuation in relation to what he was doing.

I remember that I was shocked at this, and looked at Gerry, and also at Dave, to gauge their reactions. I looked around (page 4) as is saying “did someone else hear that, or was it just me”. Silence registered in all the conversations and after, we all began conversing again.I never spoke to anyone about this, but always felt that it was very strange and not something that should be discussed or said.

Besides this, I remember that David once again did the same thing. When I refer to this, I want to clarify that it was during a conversation in which he was talking about an imaginary situation. I do not know of what. I believe that he was talking about his own daughter, Lily, although I cannot be certain. He put one of his fingers in his mouth and slide it in and out, and with the other hand, drew a circle around his breast in a sexually provocative way. I believe that he was referring to what Lily would do.

I believe that he did this later, during the holidays, but I cannot be sure. The last time, besides this, when I was with David and Fiona was several weeks after the holidays, when Savio and I were at a restaurant with Gerry, Kate, Dave and Fiona.

I am certain that he said or that he repeated the same gestures aforementioned, but it could have occurred in a restaurant in Leicester, however (page five) I believe that it was later in Mallorca. When I heard Dave asking is “she did this” a second time, I took it more seriously.I remember questioning whether looked at my children or the others in a different way. I imagined that he maybe visited Internet sites related to small children. I thought that he may be interested in child pornography on the Internet.During our holidays I was more attentive at bath time after hearing Dave saying this.

During our vacation in Mallorca, it was the fathers who bathed the children. I had the tendency to walk close to the bathroom, if David was bathing his children. I remember telling Savio to be careful when he was there, in case Dave was helping bathe the children and, in particular, my daughter Ellena. I was very clear about this, as having heard him disturbed me, and did not trust him bathing Ellena alone.

When I heard Dave say that a second time, this reinforced what I already though in relation to his thoughts about little girls. During our stay in Mallorca, Dave and his wife, Fiona, accompanied by this daughter Lilly, took Madeleine (page 6) with them to sped the day together, and to give Kate and Gerry a bit of rest with the twins. At stating this, it is not that I was reoccupied with Madeleine’s safety, as she was also with Fiona and Lilly, along with Dave.

As already referred to, I was only with Dave and Fiona on one occasion, after Mallorca. And I have not spoken to them since this time. In these last years, we have seen eachother, along with the McCANNS, on occasion. These occasions coincide with the children’s birthdays—a time when we get together.

The first time I hear the terrible news regarding the disappearance of Madeleine from the radio, my thoughts went immediately to Dave. I asked Savio if Dave was also on holidays with the McCANNs in Portugal but he did not know.

I watched TV to catch the overage of the notices and found that Dave was there. I saw him on television in the first days after the disappearance. At that, I believed that he was on holidays with the McCANNs in Portugal. Today, Thursday, the 16th of May, 2007, at 15H40, I gave DC Brewer a page containing 2 photographic images. I am going to reference these images as (ref KZG/1) (probably element) that may (page seven) be presented with my approval, if necessary. These photographs were taken during out holidays in Mallorca. In the photographs, Dave is wearing a white t-shirt and the woman in the photograph is his wife Fiona. The man that is holding the cup of wine in the photograph is Stuart. These photographs were taken whilst we were in Mallorca.

Cameron and Murdoch spinning for the McCanns

Graphic: Louis Turner

Super-injunction:The story of the Premiership Star and the evil Super Injunction


Super-injunction : Ryann Giggs outed : Spanish media, will they start asking questions to unsettle his game ?

The Spanish press has revealed that Ryan Giggs is the famous footballer who has taken out the super injunction forcing the British media to keep his name out of a sex scandal involving model Imogen Thomas.

But the Spanish newspapers are bound to start flooding United players with questions about the case when Barceloana met United onMay 28th in the gameof the decade at Wembley Stadium in the European Champions League final.

United have managed to avid any press pressure up to this point and it has served them well, their clinical dispatach of Chelsea where Giggs played a leading role just the latest example.

But Barcelona will be a different matter and the Spanish media will want to make United suffer before the game.


Super-injunction: Imogen Thomas....injunction prohibits law naming Ryan Riggs BUT he has been named in Spain.



HACKGATE day 120: The McCanns spokesman, Andy Coulson, David Cameron and 3.5 million of Public Money.

Does PR spokesman Clarence Mitchell know more than he’s letting on?

The Slog finds himself a tad mystified this morning.

Puzzle One: the Murdoch Sun has been publicising Gerry and Kate McCann’s book about their missing daughter Madeleine. This despite the fact that in January, their press agent Clarence Mitchell told the media he suspected both his and their phones had been hacked. So in the light of more recent Soham parent revelations about Newscorp allegedly hacking them in their hour of need, you’d have thought Gerry, Kate and Clarence might have concluded the Dirty Digger was behind it.

Why, then, sign a book and publicity deal with Newscorp?

Puzzle Two: as a result of the McCanns’ open letter to the Prime Minister in the Sun – pleading for the case to be reopened – Call me Dave I’m all heart Cameron leaned on Theresa May to cough up the £13 million required to do so; and she, being a lesser flea, rang some littler fleas in the Met to strongly advise that they do the same. Which they are now doing.

Having initially wondered why Dave would bother (apart from the chance of some lachrymose image repairs) I was then surprised to see the Prime Minister back-tracking over the last two days….insisting he hadn’t leaned on anyone, but merely ‘suggested’ they ‘might’ reopen the case. I was especially taken aback, because I know – categorically – that this is bollocks. Not only is it bollocks, Mr Cameron himself personally assured Gerry and Kate (they say) that the investigation “will come out of Home Office, not Police funds”. Not ‘might’ if it happens – will, when it does. This is an odd tense to use if you’re only doing the suggesting thing.

Of course, there’s more to this than money. The IoS had an intriguing piece yesterday, in which Met Police Authority bigwig Jenny Jones was quoted as saying, “The police should not take this case up in this way. It is ludicrous. This could take years and will cost millions. It is very unusual for police to step in like this and it is not an appropriate use of police resources. The Government is closing down the Forensic Science Service because there are not enough funds. This is a crucial part of police work. Although it is tragic and I feel for the McCanns, how can the Prime Minister justify spending millions of pounds on one case?”

How indeed? Why, I’m asking myself, do something so daft…even if you are David Cameron?

After digging around a little, The Slog has stumbled upon some people and events connected to this extraordinary business…connections that seem to make some potential motives clearer – and other bits considerably murkier.
Let’s start from the beginning.

I was informed last Saturday by media contacts that Clarence Mitchell says the McCann phones have been given the ‘all clear’ vis a vis hacking: no naughty listening in after all, Newscorp found not guilty.

This is a first.

I must also express my entirely personal opinion that such a finding seems unlikely given Murdoch’s track record….but you never know.

Curiously, Mr Mitchell doesn’t think his phone is tickerty-boo: he told my media source he was still in discussions with the Met. Like another man we know well from the recent past, Clarence is in danger of becoming the story.

Hold that thought.

He does seem to be centrally involved in this odd affair, but then Clarence Mitchell’s history makes him a natural for the job.

 Although in a Labour-spin role at the COI’s Media Monitoring Unit for a brief period some five years ago, in May 2007 he was suddenly seconded to the Foreign Office to work as  the McCanns’ chief PR man.

I rang a few people over the weekend.

Nobody seems to know why that happened – but he obviously did a good job of impressing the McCanns, because in September 2007, he resigned from the civil service to become the McCanns’ full-time spokesman – allegedly on a substantial five-figure salary.

He is still doing that job, but soon afterwards, Clarence started work at the hugely influential PR agency, Freud Communications.

 Matthew Freud, the owner, is married to Elisabeth Murdoch, the Digger’s favourite offspring. A few months back, Elisabeth trousered a very large sum by flogging her own production venture back to Dad. In October 2008, Freud gave David Cameron some freebie air tickets to fly to Elisabeth’s birthday party on the Digger’s yacht moored off the Greek coast.

Mitchell was obviously making all the right connections to enhance his career. On 4th March 2010, the Tories issued this press release:  ‘The Conservative Party has signed up Clarence Mitchell, best-known as spokesman for Madeleine McCann’s parents, as the head of media monitoring for its general election campaign’.

In this job, Clarence worked as second-in-command to…….Andy Coulson. Andy Coulson resigned just one day after Mitchell ‘briefed’ the British media about his mobile phone being hacked.

The good news is that how the open-letter-caring-Cameron bollocks now becomes easier to understand.

Mitchell knows all the major players and has all the right contacts.

He’d be perfect, in fact – thinking purely hypothetically of course – as the coordination guy for a McCanns project to extract lots of publicity and money from Newscorp via son-in-law Matt Freud, and £13 million of taxpayers’ money from Murdoch’s chum David Cameron.

Given that Liz Murdoch is being quietly lined up to run the newly acquired BSkyB in place of potentially toxic Hackgate witness James Murdoch, knowing her hubby would also put Clarence in good shape for a presenter’s job there one day. (He used to do that very thing for BBC24, as it then was…until he fell asleep while due to be on air, and hurriedly left).

The bad news is that, as with most things Murdochio, several unknowns and dark alleys remain.

While this web of chums is partly just another example of  The Cameron Club – with all the usual list of suspects present – The Slog is not as yet in a position to work out the significance (if any) of Mitchell’s phone hack stories….and why his chosen release date was so perfectly synchronised with Honest Andy Coulson’s Downing Street departure.

 I’m still very confused about which event was the chicken, and which the egg – if indeed any hatching was involved at all.

However, journalists here and there might speculate in order to accumulate still more evidence, circumstantial or otherwise.

Some might ask whether a high-profile antipodean family is perhaps in Mr Mitchell’s debt in some way.

Others with even more suspicious minds might even wonder if Clarence knows where some of the Hackgate bodies are buried….and thus has Newscorp at a disadvantage.

And experienced conspiracy theorists might even speculate that the Prime Minister himself has little choice, under the circumstances, than to go along with the coughing up of £13 million, however unpopular that might be.

Whatever the truth or otherwise of this chain of events might be, the fact is that Mr Mitchell has extracted a lucrative deal from Rupert Murdoch, and a police investigation for the sole use of Gerry and Kate McCann. So he really has done a stunning job for his clients.

What’s more, he seems to have done it for nothing.

 The McCanns and Mitchell have said on the record that the ‘Helping to Find Madeleine Fund’ did not pay any part of his salary, even when he had no other job.

They say that he was paid by ‘an anonymous backer’. But Clarence Mitchell won’t say who that backer is, nor why that backer is giving him so much support. And he has changed his mind on at least one occasion about whether there was a backer at all.The $64 million question has to be, can we trust what Clarence Mitchell says? Well, this quote from Carlos Anjos, head of the Portuguese police professional association, who had dealings with Clarence Mitchell, is brief and to the point: “He lies with as many teeth as he has in his mouth”.

There’s much to ponder upon here; but in the meantime, I offer this tantalising little postscript: Mitchell also reported extensively on the murder by Ian Huntley of Soham girls Jessica Chapman and Holly Wells.

Newscorp now stands accused of hacking the parents. I’d love to ask Clarence what he knows about that alleged hacking….and others. But despite repeated attempts over the last 48 hours to raise Clarence Mitchell on his mobile, he has not returned The Slog’s calls.

Those with sharper spades than mine may wish to dig further. In the meantime, if anything further comes to light, Sloggers will be the first to know.

Catch up on the full Hackgate saga here.

HACKGATE day 118: Koo Stark to sue unnamed tabloid as hacking trail leads back to Royals.

News of the World’s Dan Evans now also in the frame

Evans: suspended……from a great height

I’m indebted to a senior Fleet Street contact who last night pointed out to me this excellent blog at a specialist legal site. The piece – by Dominic Crossley – does confirm the view of many around Britain (following yesterday’s £100,000 hacking settlement between Sienna Miller and Newscorp) that as The Slog asserted last night, the fat lady is a long way from singing – and Ms Miller is as delightfully slim as ever. The queue to sue keeps getting longer….and with each case, further details will be teased out.

Any Met investigators at yesterday’s session in the Court of Justice Vos will have been intrigued to hear about the behaviour of NotW’s Dan Evans, for example. As Crossley writes, the Hackgate saga….

‘took a leap forward yesterday with the explosive evidence that Dan Evans’ computer contained the same private mobile numbers as those found in Mulcaire’s papers. 

The full impact of this revelation has yet to be fully played out, but the suggestion is that this journalist made ongoing use of Mulcaire’s information when Mulcaire was removed from the picture by way of his conviction and prison sentence in 2007.’...read more...


HACKGATE day 117: Sienna may have settled but she aint the fat lady.

Any relief felt among Wapping Liars tonight is hugely premature

The miracle silver-tongue of Michael Silverleaf worked its magic yet again in the High Court today, as Sienna Miller’s side accepted the £100,000 on offer in order to shut up forever about accept that a private showing of the relevant email batch to her lawyers was enough to satisfy her disquiet. It would be very easy to say Sienna took the money and ran, but the reality is she put her savings on the line to bring this case – so nobody should get too sanctimonious about it.

Unfortunately, the decision – announced a couple of hours ago around 3 pm BST – will set a precedent. And Newscorp was aiming an empty gun at Ms Miller. But that’s easy for me to say – it wasn’t my money. Instead, I think Sienna has a right to ask other celebs with more money – and other media so far being suspiciously reticent on the subject of privacy invasion – to take up the baton from here on....read more..


HACKGATE Day 116: Attorney general allows Jefferies contempt case to proceed.

As The Slog keeps warning, without better tabloid behaviour, the press is going to be forcibly restrained.

The piece I posted about the EUCHR decision earlier this week was unique in the site’s history, in that the vast majority of threaders disagreed with it. Well, that’s the point of having an open-minded site.

But the next day, my fears were rapidly justified when the ghastly Jeremy Hunt popped out of his hole to say how good it would be to have superinjunctions and closely controlled internet freedoms all rolled into one whopping big Bill. My contention remains what it has always been: Wapping great lies will produce Whopping great censorship laws...read more...


Super-injunction: Vicky Haigh.' My daddy is a paedophile'.


Super-injunction: Vicky Haigh - David Tune

Did Michael Tune of Humberside Police Force aid a paedophile in escaping prosecution ?



Super injunction:RE: Doncaster Council shamed by MP over unlawful gagging order


I am forwarding brief details of the appalling story of Vicky Haigh and her abducted 7 yr daughter, Romany, who has been snatched by Doncaster Social Services since January 2010.

In essence, the problem now is that Vicky is heavily pregnant (due to give birth early next month), and has been arbitrarily arrested by Doncaster police (tel: 01302 385241/240 - Inspector Hitchener, Sgt Sheridan) - despite having done nothing wrong! They have held her in custody since 2 days now - without any charges laid. She has been in & out of hospital because of pains and being anaemic, and had collapsed a few times as they've been harassing and victimising her. This all arose from Vicky innocently attending a petrol station a few days ago, at the same time that the paedophile ex-husband (who has been given custody of their daughter through skulduggery in the courts) was buying petrol there. Although pure coincidence, the paedo father (David Tune) dialled '999" and made the malicious allegation that the mother had "breached the non-molestation order", because of bumping in to her at the petrol station!

Here are some bullet points about this startling case:

1. Evidence exists to show that the child, Romany, has been abused by the paedo father allegedly since she was just 3 years old - yet the father has not yet been convicted.
2. The police had 2 video interviews done where the 6 yr child said "what daddy had done to me" in a child's own words... compelling evidence of paedophilia on the father's part.
3. Astonishingly, the police IGNORED AND OVERRODE this evidence!
4. I then discovered the paedo father has a BROTHER in the police force- Michael Tune, working for Humberside Force. He has perverted justice on this case through his brother aiding & abetting and abusing his position as a police officer.
5. Originally the paedo father had supervised contact visits with Romany, and through a CAFCASS officer lying, the position was reversed - and the mother had supervised contact visits put on HER (despite being 100% innocent!)
6. This enabled the Social Services to nefariously obtain a "care order" on the child - filling their coffers with thousands of pounds a week, as a result
7. I was stunned to then discover just before xmas last year that the "head solicitor" from DMBC (Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council) on the Case, one Lisa Bunn - had been defrauding the Court! She wasn't a solicitor after all! The SRA confirmed this in writing to me.
8. I alerted the Court, and it was ignored. The Sheffield county court transferred the case to the High Court in London, who in turn threw it out and it was sent back to Birmingham
9. I then contacted Birmingham County Court in Feb this year, only to discover that "no such case number exists" (I have this on tape)....then I recvd a call reversing this and claiming a "mistake" had been made, even though 3 different people confirmed "no such case".
10. I told the Court they had no jurisdiction and asked them to confirm the Judge was sitting on his oath when he made the supposed 'Order' - no answer came. It seems the court has stood down...we were then left with the threat posed by the police, engaging in arbitrary arrest...
11. The police came banging on Vicky's door at least 5 times during the course of her pregnancy, at 4am in the morning, causing untold harassment and distress.
12. We are looking at pressing criminal and negligence charges against the police and social services, and charges for perverting the Course of justice. Please help us expose this story - and others like it

Super-injunction: Doncaster Council shamed by MP over unlawful gagging order

Quote:A Liberal Democrat MP yesterday used Parliamentary privilege to name a woman he said a council tried to jail for speaking in Westminster.

John Hemming, who previously used privilege to name former Royal Bank of Scotland Sir Fred Goodwin as the subject of a High Court super-injunction, has spoken out again about the use of injunctions, censorship and creeping privacy laws.

Hemming told MPs: "Vicky Haigh, who is a horse trainer and previously a jockey, was the subject of an attempt by Doncaster Council to imprison her for speaking at a meeting in Parliament.

"There was some discussion earlier today about whether that case was sub-judice. An application was made to the court, a copy of which I have provided."

Hemming said the court ordered she should not be jailed, adding: "I assume therefore the case is not sub-judice."

The MP did not give any further details about why Doncaster Council tried to have Ms Haigh imprisoned, or the subject of her controversial Parliamentary speech.

Speaker John Bercow urged Hemming to speak to him privately, telling the MP: "I don't intend to have a discussion on the floor of the House.

"One of my duties is to uphold the resolution of the House with respect to sub-judice. As far as this particular matter is concerned, I am perfectly prepared to discuss the issue privately."

Hemming later raised another point of order about injunctions in the Commons, addressing temporary gags which prevent certain issues being aired in public.

He said: "There is a tendency for people to issue injunctions on the basis of a claim they intend to issue proceedings, but not actually to issue those proceedings.

"One would presume therefore that never becomes sub judice."

Bercow again silenced Hemming saying: "The issue is one for consideration at our private meeting."

Meanwhile, in the Lords Tory ex-Cabinet minister Lord Tebbit sought clarification on whether injunctions could prevent people discussing matters with MPs, peers, the police or the security services.

Justice minister Lord McNally told himin a written reply that "to protect the interests of justice" the courts could prohibit the disclosure of information to anyone other than the defendant's legal advisers.

The Liberal Democrat minister added: "The defendant is always at liberty to apply for the order to be made in different terms (if he or she is represented at the hearing), or subsequently for the terms of the order to be amended (for example to permit disclosure to specific individuals or bodies for specific purposes)."

Super-injunctions: UK Justice Tugendhat




Injunction.. still on Jack the Ripper 'supergrasses' 100 years later!


Super injunction ..latest England international footballer running free with his balls.

Yet another married England footballer obtained a gagging order last night to keep details of  his private life secret.

The father, who plays for a leading Premier League club, became the latest celebrity to use human rights legislation to hide details of his indiscretions with another woman from the public.

The orders have sparked accusations that privacy laws are being abused to protect celebrities’ reputations.

However unlike previous injunctions, the footballer applied for the order jointly with the other woman.


Super injunctions A-Z...

The Daily Star Sunday has compiled an A to Z list of 50 super-injunctions which it claims is the most comprehensive ever published.

The paper claims there is a super-injunction protecting someone who is dead. It says the order was taken out in 2008 by an elderly man and remains in place despite his death.
According to the Daily Star Sunday, there are 12 true super-injunctions, about which no details can be reported.

The rest, although sometimes dubbed super-injunctions, are anonymous injunctions. Nine footballers, nine actors, four pop stars, six wealthy businessmen and women, a senior civil servant and an MP have won the restrictions to stop their secrets reaching you.

The Daily Telegraph has also been carrying out
an investigation into super-injunctions.

The Telegraph’s audit found: • Nine footballers, nine actors, four pop stars, six wealthy businessmen and women, a senior civil servant and an MP have obtained injunctions;
• Just three High Court judges have granted more than a third of the injunctions between them;
• Schillings, the media law firm, has obtained more than 20 of the orders and been paid an estimated £2 million;
• One super-injunction is so binding that even the name of the judge has been kept secret. He can be referred to only as Mr Justice [xxxx].


Cameron spends too much time in bed with MURDOCH .

While we are all well aware Cameron dances to the tune of MURDOCH and as his riding partner Rebekah Brooks has already pointed out , it was she who helped her friend (just call me Dave) to become Prime Minister.... Theresa May has told a blatant lie while herself dancing to the tune of the McCanns..she has claimed to have been in contact with the British Ambassador of Portugal, only problem is, we don't have one ...well not until July that is !

Injunction on the British media ? Judiciary Police denies involvement in British Investigation

As the British Goverment continue to LIE about the investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann, the Portuguese Judiciary remain adamant the case , as the public have been led to believe today in Britain, HAS NOT been re-opened.




Super Injunction on Goncalo Amaral? it would appear so as the British press are banned from reporting on a single word that comes from his mouth.

Actor is first celebrity to settle claim since tabloid admitted hacking several public figures' voicemail messages

Actor Sienna Miller accepted £100,000 compensation from News of the World on Friday after the paper accepted unconditional liability for all her phone-hacking claims.

The unexpected agreement came midway through a high court battle with the paper. Miller is the first celebrity to settle their claim since the tabloid, part of Rupert Murdoch's News Group Newspapers (NGN), admitted hacking the phones of several public figures last month.
The settlement is the highest privacy award to date. NGN will also be paying the actor's legal costs.

Michael Silverleaf QC, NGN's barrister, previously claimed that Miller's case could result in £400,000 in damages. He told the court that this would be a "ludicrous" sum.

Separately, it emerged on Friday that James Hewitt, the former army officer who became famous for his affair with Princess Diana, is poised to sue the paper for invasion of privacy.
Hewitt will issue proceedings next week after the Metropolitan poilce showed him evidence that suggests he may have been targeted by Glenn Mulcaire, the private investigator who was jailed for hacking into mobile phone voicemail messages in 2007.

Hewitt's lawyer, Charlotte Harris of Mishcon de Reya, confirmed that her client is poised to begin action against the paper: "He's had his meeting with the police, we're satisfied he has a strong case and we will be issuing legal proceedings next week."

Miller's legal team has previously insisted that she was not concerned with the financial aspect of the settlement. "The crucial point in our view is to know the extent of the wrongdoing," Hugh Tomlinson QC, Miller's barrister said in court yesterday.

He added that she had made the last-minute agreement "precisely because all her claims have been admitted [comprising] misuse of private information, breach of confidence, publication of articles derived from voicemail hacking and a course of conduct of harassment over a period of 12 months as resulting from all that.

"Her primary concern is not how much money is rewarded by way of compensation but what the extent was of the hacking that took place," he said.

"What she wants is to have is disclosure and proper answers from the News of the World as to what took place so she can have effective non-monetary relief and can be properly compensated," Tomlinson said.

Silverleaf told the high court that the story about her troubled relationship with fellow actor Jude Law, which was published after her voicemail was hacked was merely "hurtful" to the 29-year-old celebrity.

He said £100,000 was fair because it was more than what she would receive if she had suffered a "life-changing experience" such as the loss of an eye or facial scarring.

"What she wants is a public inquiry that goes beyond what the remedy in civil law provides," Silverleaf added. "The complainant's career, reputation or life has not been affected in the long term. She said she was upset at the time. She does not suggest she suffered any long-term harm, there is no suggestion in the pleading."

At least 24 breach of privacy claims have now been lodged against the News of the World by celebrities.

They all believe their mobile phone voicemails were eavesdropped using stolen information such as pin codes obtained by Mulcaire.

The newspaper has admitted hacking at least eight public figures' voicemails.

Rupert Murdoch's News International announced last month it was setting up a £20m compensation fund.

A News International spokeswoman said: "We are pleased that we have managed to bring this case to a satisfactory conclusion. Several weeks ago we admitted liability in certain cases and offered a genuine and unreserved apology. We hope to resolve other cases swiftly.

"For the record, reports that we have been ordered to disclose 8,000 emails to Ms Miller are inaccurate. The error stems from a reference in court to the fact that a total of 8,0f00 emails were being searched to ascertain whether any Sienna Miller related material was amongst them."

A statement from both Miller and NGN will be read to the court at a hearing next Friday.

Super injunction: Lord Toby may be required in the future to have his mouth 'supered'

It is not the first time people in the know have slipped up and said what they know to be true, that Madeleine McCann IS in fact dead. Lord Toby, today wrote on his blog about the DEATH of Madeleine, it took a while before someone pointed it out to him....Lord Toby has now changed his blog BUT not before someone managed to take a screen shot.

Also the words from Kate McCann forever etched in our minds, how she imagines Madeleines ripped and torn perfect genitals, of course she imagines no such thing because as we all know as Lord Toby wrote today Madeleine is dead and has been for four long years. The fact Kate McCann has written such evil words shows her desire for self- protection and total disregard for her dead three year old daughter.
