Court of Appeal adjournment on permission

This case is an important case because it relates to someone being excluded from the legal process.

I'm the Science Correspondent for the BBC in Birmingham and I'm working on the Politics Show at the moment. We're looking to do something on blogging and wondered if you would be able to take part?

Can you email me david dot gregory at bbc dot co dot uk to discuss this further?

Many thanks

Standards Board and Ken Livingstone

The link is to the case where Ken Livingstone appealed the decision of the Adjudication Panel for England. The Standards Board and associated Adjudication Panel have done a lot of damage to democracy in the UK. The courts are, however, bringing them into more sanity. The point about Ken Livingstone's case is that it was high profile and he also could afford to appeal. The Standard Board has a problem in that those subject to its enquiries face substantial costs that they cannot claim back. This is an issue that needs further work. In essence the Judge found that what he said brought him into disrepute, but not the office of Mayor. We do need the machinery of the SBE and APE to concentrate on things that matter rather than people being rude to each other.
