Liberal Democrat MP John Hemming today named Ryan Giggs in a parliamentary urgent question on super injunctions.
“With about 75,000 people already having named Ryan Giggs on Twitter, it’s obviously impracticable to imprison them all, and with reports that Giles Coren also faces imprisonment…”
He was then cut short by the Speaker.
Attorney General Dominic Grieve replied:
“It is our duty as parliamentarians to maintain the rule of law.”
Here is a video of the exchange:
As you’re here, we have something to ask you. What we do here to deliver real news is more important than ever. But there’s a problem: we need readers like you to chip in to help us survive. We deliver progressive, independent media, that challenges the right’s hateful rhetoric. Together we can find the stories that get lost.
We’re not bankrolled by billionaire donors, but rely on readers chipping in whatever they can afford to protect our independence. What we do isn’t free, and we run on a shoestring. Can you help by chipping in as little as £1 a week to help us survive? Whatever you can donate, we’re so grateful - and we will ensure your money goes as far as possible to deliver hard-hitting news.
