mep makes allegations against usmanov. cue free for all :)

26 Sep

An interesting development on the Alisher Usmanov affair. Tom Wise MEP [*cheers*] has been speaking to Craig Murray and has made a statement under Parliamentary Privilege. A very interesting development, as Elaib over at England Expects explains: –

Under the rules governing parliamentary privilege, any news organisation can repeat what has been said in the Parliament chamber, allowing the MSM to circumvent the legal threats being thrown about by Usmanov’s lawyers Schillings.


Matt Wardman (where I first read the story) has the audio.

    I’ve got to admit I am really enjoying (and contributing in my own small way to) the blowback against Usmanov. It serves him right!

    Anyone who seeks to close down legitimate free speech has something to hide. IMO.
