The law is quite clear. There is still an injunction against anyone mentioning that it’s
Ryan Giggs who had an affair. There is still an injunction in force stopping everybody from naming Ryan Giggs as the subject of the injunction.
OK that’s one gagging order that was a waste of money but at least the gagging order for
Ryan Giggs was a waste of his money instead of ours.
More than 100 members of staff are reported to have left Suffolk County Council with so-called “gagging orders” in which they agreed not to make any complaints about or claims against the council, according to figures obtained under the Freedom of Information Act. The payouts are estimated to be worth a total of £1m.
I’ve attempted to start a petition here that went as follows
“We the people of Suffolk do not believe it is in the public interest for former Suffolk County Council employee’s to be denied their right to speak concerning the working atmosphere and how things are done at Suffolk County Council.
We believe in transparency within local government
We therefore petition that the ‘gagging orders’ be lifted immediately. “
I was unable to submit the petition.
