Warrant for Arrest (for how long?) - while Seeking Asylum in France

04-11-2010 10:52

Maurice insists in being arrested only for the purpose of going to court and meeting the judge who convicted him in his absence, despite his request for adjournment. But the Court is far from co-operating. Here's his account with questions to the Court.

The NHS has asked their solicitors about the release of the medical records. The Judge and the Police's solicitors are meeting in Maurice's absence.

Is the only purpose for solicitors to run up bills, while Maurice not only suffers physically, but is also made to suffer the anguish of having to be arrested for an indefinite period?

The Police are only doing their job. And the lawyers who tell the Law Enforcers what their job is, don't care, do they...

Medialens: WikiLeaks - The Smear and the Denial - Part 1 - The Smear

03-11-2010 15:17

“Journalists don't like WikiLeaks”, Hugo Rifkind notes in The Times, but “the people who comment online under articles do... Maybe you've noticed, and been wondering why. I certainly have.” (Hugo Rifkind Notebook, ‘Remind me. It's the red one I mustn't press, right?,’ The Times, October 26, 2010)

Rifkind is right. The internet has revealed a chasm separating the corporate media from readers and viewers. Previously, the divide was hidden by the simple fact that Rifkind’s journalists - described accurately by Peter Wilby as the “unskilled middle class” ( - monopolised the means of mass communication. Dissent was restricted to a few lonely lines on the letter’s page, if that. Readers were free to vote with their notes and coins, of course.
