Post Script to My Article on Britain’s Libel Laws

In my earlier article on the subject of Britain’s libel laws, I noted how ineffective the injunction would be in burying the allegations against Prince Charles; as the story was then published in the foreign press.

As if to rub salt into the wounds, the allegations were printed in a Scottish newspaper this Sunday. Scholars of geography will note that Scotland is physically attached to England.

How could the story be published in Scotland, when there is an injunction forbidding it? Simple, the injunction only applies in England and Wales!

As I said earlier, welcome to “lah-lah land”.
