We were hoping to save on this months ASDA bill so that was a bit of a disappointment. :cry:

Apparently, It would seem that events have been put back until October 21, 2011 so at least we will have time to see the new season in. :D

Curiously http://www.may-212011.com/ is now devoid of content! :lol:

I assume that chess in the Surrey area has not been affected any more than any where else? :roll:

Happy birthday to Anatoly Yevgenyevich Karpov who is 60 today!

Time to attend another ECF election meeting then :cry:

In fact, it may encourage more people to stand to be ECF Directors if they know they will only be in the post for less than a week :lol:

Poor old Ryan Giggs. If the world had ended he'd have got away with it.

It's all over for little Ryan I'm afraid. Silly sod.

Twitter has apparently also stopped censoring its Trending list: 'Ryan Giggs' has reappeared in the Top 10.

Named by John Hemmings in the Commons using Parliamentary Privilege. Busted injunction - this site - nor any other - cannot be done for reporting proceedings in the Commons or for common knowledge either.

I wouldn't be so sure. It's not that simple with regards to contempt law. Just because he has revealed the name, doesn't necessarily remove the injunction.

Can you state in what way Parliamentary Privilege is not absolute in this regard?

The report is everywhere now so I don't see it as a problem...

THere was some gap between Giggs being named in Parliament and most news sources naming the person who'd been named.

At first many (e.g. BBC radio, Independent website, Telegraph website) were saying that the footballer had been named in Parliament but not saying who the footballer was.

The Guardian, on the other hand, just came out with it and said it was Giggs.

BBC radio justified their initial reticence by saying Parliamentary Privilege meant that John Hemmings could say what he wanted but they wanted a double check legal opinion as to whether they could report fully what he said.

I believe that at the time of writing the injunction is technically still in place - but clearly it's not going to be enforceable. I also think I'm right in saying that The Sun have gone back to court (after losing earlier today) to get it formally removed.

I'd be very surprised if this wasn't on every front page tomorrow morning.
