"Sally Bercow, wife of the Speaker of the House of Commons, has been told she may be sued for claims she made on her social media account. Her first Twitter response to the warning was: "*gulps*". "

She's blonde and pretty, so she must be innocent.

About a large powerful institution covering up decades of sexual abuse of kids by one of their employees while on their property? I have never heard about anybody getting fired up about such a thing.

Or are you talking about the guy being falsely labeled a pedophile in the national media? Nobody tends to get riled up about false accusations either.

tldr: I'm with you

Yeah, that's going to work.

I'm glad there is some one out there willing to take on members of the Twitterati. We've clearly lived under the threat of the people like @clownpenis420 for too long.

Far too long.

There is no First Amendment rights in the UK. And it is very possible for them to file a lawsuit against you there in court, you lose by default when you laugh, and then the financial world hands your assets to the plaintif in accordance with international agreements.

I'm betting she'll claim temporary insanity due to the hormone treatments.

The mayor of Syracuse tried similar. The rumor was not about underage buggery, but that he beat his wife. He, obviously not familiar with the Streissand effect, had all the news stations broadcast his threats to fully prosecute anyone spreading the malicious rumor. It was sad, really. Also, the rumor had been going around for years before he caught wind of it. I don't know if anyone ever told him that.

No one was ever charged or sued. The publicity assured that the last few housebound seniors with no friends or internet connection also heard about it. 

/before Streissand effect, now that I think about it
//results still could have been predicted

Worse, in the UK you can be arrested and jailed for saying mean things that hurt people's feelings.

I can see the adam's apple move as I read it.

Came here to make a comment about the Streisand effect, but it looks like namegoeshere covered it already, so we'll just see how this plays out.

Well, I meant trying to track down everyone who Tweeted something, but we'll see what happens...

We have "Smart" and "Funny" tags. I wish "Dipsh--" were an option.

Nice face, nice tits, too bad about the gunt. At least she's taking some 8 year old dressed as a ringmaster out trick or treating.

Does UK law require that the person spreading the falsehood know that it's a falsehood? Because I'm pretty sure that that's a critical component, and as far as the people spreading it on Twitter were concerned, it was reported by the BBC, and as such, fact.

So yeah- fatty should probably just stick to suing the BBC.
 
2012-11-17 02:25:52 AM
Remember when BBC was a legit news source that checked sources?

Me neither.

cptjeff: Does UK law require that the person spreading the falsehood know that it's a falsehood?


No. "It was true" is a defence but "I thought it was true" is not.

What if someone were to say "I believe he is a pedophile"
Does british law make a distinction between "I believe" and "He is"?

Depends on the specifics. "it is alleged that..." is often used by the UK media and seems pretty safe.

That video clip in the article is on a still image from Top of the Pops. That just makes me think of Nirvana being on that show and Kurt Cobain giving the mic a blow job. Link

No one involved or mentioned in this story has ever done anything lewd, improper, inappropriate to me.
