The "pro" McCann are out in force at the moment but all of us who tweet & go on facebook (I' don't) need to be aware of the law.

We have "THE RIGHT" to discuss evidence as is widely available on the internet. Pros' havent got there yet but if you post this link they may understand. http://www.guardian.co.uk/law/2010/dec/01/supreme-court-fair-comment-libel-defence-change

Basically we have the right (nothing other) to discuss any evidence as it is readily available on the internet. As long as we are not abusive we can discuss evidence - that is not difficult. I have even tweeted to the Sun (3 times today) regarding this as it is our right as UK citizens.

Will it change? We will see.

That's not quite correct. Actually, you are 'allowed' by law to be abusive and call people all the names under the sun, but you are not allowed to defame someone if the defamation is untrue. So you can call Harry a 'son of a bitch' but you cannot call him, say, a child abuser, if he isn't. So if you haven't got 100% proof that he IS an abuser, and if you haven't got deep pockets and Harry is a litigious SOB, you are best not to defame him!

Then again, anyone who makes unfounded defamatory comments about someone else is not on my wavelength at all.
