The absurdity of the UK LAW enforcing "A worldwide ban on naming" 5 Days, 16 Hours ago  
This has puzzled me for years ...its absolutely unexplainable.

Just Google "A worldwide ban on naming" and you will see articles going back years about how certain criminals who have been granted lifelong anonimity (by a UK court) and that somehow if ANYONE ON EARTH decides to expose their new identity then they will face prosecution.

Since when did THE U.K tell the entire planet what they can and can't say,write,publish etc?
The U.K also seems to be the ONLY country who ever come out with this nonsense.

Its the same when we see (ONLY EVER in a UK news article) that there is "A gag order" regarding the exploits of some z-lister.
Whats to stop anyone outside the UK sticking the celebs name and face on the front page of their local rag?

If The Outer Mongolia Gazette published a picture of Mary Bell at the bingo with the headline "UK child killer gets a full house!" what is Judge Rinder or Judge Pickles gonna do?

Can someone please explain how this works?



*Please Note. It has not been proven if Mary Bell does actually play bingo*

I'm with the Germans on this.

Britain's lascivious desire to know every sordid detail is used by gutter tabloids to profit from.

I've often pondered on this now I'm in a largely sunny country with a largely outdoor lifestyle.

There doesn't seem to be the same desire to rake over the coals of every hideous case or sensation..say the idiotic stalking of an old man like Rolf Harris going to the shops which a UK red top will lap up but hardly makes a dent in Oz

How Germany's strict privacy laws meant Madeleine McCann suspect's full name and photograph were held back from the public - despite his string of sex crimes, burglaries and drug offences


Of course there are exceptions to the rule..the decimation of the former Oz Attorney General over unproved 30 year old rape claims and the pursuit of Cardinal George Pell but they are driven by politicians and corrupt police.

HEDDA - Would the public lynch a paediatrician in Aus having mistaken him for a peadophile? I am wondering if our (UK) salacious nosiness is the flip side of our love of aggressive moral outrages!? Of course, they may just be able to distinguish the meaning of ancient Greek based words better in Perth than Portsmouth?

Alas we don't teach ancient Greek in state schools here....

I hated learning Latin at school; then was delighted as I had to learn Italian years later; knowledge of French plus Latin got me by in my beloved Italy.
