Another blogger under attack! – Carmarthenshire Planning Problems and more

News just in about another blogger having difficulties with the local Council. The blog, Carmarthenshire Planning Problems and more, has upset more than a few and is now paying a price for it.

This example involves the illegal expenditure on libel suits, this would be very familiar to Mr Monkey and Councillor Ahmed Khan of South Tyneside Council, I would imagine.

“According to a leading textbook on libel, if a governmental body indemnifies one of its officers in respect of libel proceedings in order to assert its own reputation this is an unlawful circumvention of the rule that it has no right to commence such proceedings itself. Such a decision would therefore be liable to be quashed on public law grounds.” Pinched from Jacqui Thompson’s blog.

The police were called in to eject a member of the public for exercising her democratic rights! Sounds a familiar tactic here in Rotherham, read: Thirlwall Ejected from Council Meeting For Wanting The Truth! Labour Group – Stalin Would Be Proud!. Though  Jacqui Thompson was dragged off in handcuffs and taken to a police station 30 miles away!
