Gagging over Toxicity, Lawyers and Freedom of the Press

Traffigura and the Guardian

I read this non article in the Guardian on the train down to Bradford this morning and resolved to look it up when I got home to find out what the hell it was all about. Thanks to Tynedock Green, Chicken Youghurt and the Guardian its self I now know a lot more than I did at 7:30 when I bought the paper. It is a ludicrous attempt by big business to stop legitimate reporting of stuff we already know about through Hansard and normal parliamentary reporting. Kafkaesque or what?

I now also know what the Streisand effect is.
