Twitter and jurisdictional issues
Much that the presence of the twitter account that purports to reveal contents of a number of super injunctions was in the news on Monday, the account is still there and now has 113,865 followers.
What we have is a law that is not generally accepted as well as a law that only really benefits wealthy men.
The point about the checks and balances in the system is to ensure that the laws do have general acceptance through the parliamentary systems.
One of the challenges, however, is that when courts sit in secret and make orders that themselves are secret it is difficult to get clarity as to whether the laws do or do not have general acceptance.
Obviously when it comes to the question of privacy it has become quite clear that the current position does not have general acceptance.
My own view is that some of the other things that have been kept secret by court orders are issues that would not have general acceptance. However, that can only be tested by getting those issues into the public domain.
Work on this continues.
