Withers LLP twinned with Carter Fuck

It would seem that the new fashion amongst lawyers is to try to silence Parliament, following on from Carter Fuck trying to stop Trafigura we now have Withers LLP trying their hand at preventing MPs talking about things in Parliament. This time though it’s not about dumping toxic waste in the third world but local planning issues, the full story is over at The Guardian. The key par of the e-mail sent by Withers LLP though is this gem: “”In order to settle this matter we, therefore, require an apology in respect of both the serious allegations plus payment of … Continue reading

Trafigura a belated update

Again rather late with getting round to posting this update, but for completeness sake I think it best not over looked. Sadly it seems that Trafigura and carter-fuck have had thier day in court and the BBC have issued an apology in open court., as well as £250,000. the full apology from newsnight can be found here. The gist of the statement is basically that experts hadn’t been able to find any link between being exposed to highly toxic slops and “deaths, miscarriages and chronic and long-term injuries”.

Carter-fuck at it again

They seem to have realised that trying to stop the press reporting on Parliament is a bad move from a publicity point of view, so… now they’re trying to stop Parliament discussing the report about their client Trafigura dumping toxic waste on the Ivory Coast.

More on Carter fuck

As there’s a few more commentaries around on the Guardian gagging order i thought it only right to help improve it’s ineffectiveness to link t a few of them. The general consensus seems to be that the question cart-fuck don’t want us to know about is: Questions for Oral or Written Answer beginning on Tuesday 13 October 2009 61. Paul Farrelly (Newcastle-under-Lyme): To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, what assessment he has made of the effectiveness of legislation to protect (a) whistleblowers and (b) press freedom following the injunctions obtained in the High Court by (i) Barclays and … Continue reading
