I am so disgusted by this unjust and chilling ruling. I am ashamed to be Irish after this shameful escapade
conor3000, I'm English, the people doing this on both sides of the Irish Sea are not us, they are against us. As long as we're doing what we can to oppose 'em, we have nothing to be ashamed of.
I hope this finds you all well, in good spirit and having a good day.conor3000 and fellist, if either of you have contacts in the internet, newspaper, radio, television or other media outlets, please do what you can to get the word out. The more people that know about this gross injustice, the more opportunity we have to keep the British government from getting away with this.If you would rather forward media contact information on, please let me know on this forum and I will provide an email address.Thank-you.Peace be upon you,RobThank-you.
I think the essence of the problem here, is that if one is not an attorney or barrister, one should not make submissions to either the judge nor jury. In professional codes of conduct in the US, it is understood that ex parte contacts with judges concerning a material matter in litigation, is prohibited. It is only the parties to the litigation who may contact or address the judge, after reasonable notice to affected parties to the litigation, and in the presence of the parties at hearing. I don't know the exact specifics of the British law on this matter, but Maud'Dib has made a terrible blunder; he should have obtained counsel before attempted to contact any government body. This is not really a freedom of expression issue.Just to clarify, I have seen 77 Ripple Effect and think it's brilliant. I suspect someone may have misguided him in this matter. Given his film, he should have been much more cautious in his actions. I wish him and your program the best and my opinion is offered in this spirit.What is the old saying? "He who has himself for a lawyer has a fool for a client."
