MAX MOSLEY THREAT TO PRESS FREEDOM He wants to use Data Protection law to obliterate all mention of his S&M orgies & his attempts to control the press

An extraordinary attempt by tycoon Max Mosley to block the press from reporting on his activities.

Gerry & Kate McCann, Hugh Grant and Steve Coogan (Alan Partridge) are among those calling for the British press to be subject to decisions by the Max Mosley-controlled press standards body, IMPRESS.

Max Mosley launches legal bid to scrub his notorious German-themed orgy from history in a chilling attack on Press freedom

German-themed sadomasochistic orgy involved Mr Mosley and five prostitutes 

The 77-year-old is trying to use data protection laws to erase mention of it 

He also wants press to stop saying he owns the controversial regulator Impress 


Max Mosley has launched a chilling new attack on Press freedom, with an extraordinary legal bid to scrub records of his notorious German-themed orgy from history.

The former Formula One boss also wants to restrict reporting on the £3.8million his family trust spends bankrolling the controversial Press regulator Impress.

He has taken legal action against a range of newspapers – the Daily Mail, The Times, The Sun and at least one other national newspaper – demanding they delete any references to his sadomasochistic sex party and never mention it again.

The orgy, which involved Mr Mosley and five prostitutes, was exposed by the News of the World in 2008 and became the subject of one of the biggest privacy trials in history.

However, in a move that could have devastating consequences both for Press freedom and for historical records, Mr Mosley is now using data protection laws to try to force newspapers to erase any mention of it.

And it is not the only extraordinary demand Mr Mosley – the son of wartime fascist leader Oswald Mosley – is making.

He has also insisted that the newspapers stop making references to the fact he bankrolls Impress – the highly controversial, state-approved Press regulator.
Yesterday, MPs warned against data protection laws being used to trample Press freedoms. 

The laws were drawn up to tackle misuse of personal information by mail order and credit card companies, but are increasingly being used against the Press.

Conservative MP Bill Cash said: 'The freedom of the Press is paramount and it would be perverse to allow historical records to be removed on the basis of data protection.

'If data protection can be used to wipe out historical records, then the consequences would be dramatic.'






The orgy, which involved Mr Mosley (pictured) and five prostitutes, was exposed by the News of the World in 2008 and became the subject of one of the biggest privacy trials in history


John Whittingdale, a Tory former Culture Secretary, said: 'Data protection is an important principle for the protection of citizens. However, it must not be used to restrict the freedom of the Press.'

Mr Mosley's legal bid uses a combination of previous rulings and data protection laws to try to argue that he should be able to scrub uncomfortable information from the annals of history – and suppress public debate about his relationship with Impress.

If he won, it would set a far-reaching precedent – potentially allowing people to wipe controversial events in their past from the historical record, and even prohibiting references to public judgments of the courts.

It comes as MPs prepare to debate a highly controversial amendment to the new Data Protection Bill, under which any newspaper which is not a member of a state-approved regulator would face paying the costs of any action like Mr Mosley's – even if they won their case.

The only newspaper regulator which has official approval under the Government's royal charter is Impress, which is almost entirely funded by a charity financed by Mr Mosley. 

The Daily Mail and the vast majority of other newspapers are regulated by the independent regulator IPSO.

In his action, the multimillionaire racing tycoon claimed that the Daily Mail's owner, Associated Newspapers, had breached data protection 'principles' in 34 articles published since 2013 – including many opinion pieces defending the freedom of the Press. 

These principles are designed to stop companies from 'excessive processing' of people's sensitive personal data or from holding on to people's details for longer than necessary, and come with exemptions for journalism that is in the public interest.
However, Mr Mosley argued that the data protection exemptions do not apply to mentions of his orgy, because the judge presiding over his privacy case against the News of the World ruled that the exposé was not in the public interest. 







Mr Mosley famously won £60,000 in damages from the now defunct tabloid. 

The judge ruled that the orgy was private because it was not 'Nazi' themed – as the News of the World had claimed.

In his legal action this week, the racing tycoon's lawyers used another branch of data protection law to prevent future reporting of his funding agreement with Impress and to erase it from previous articles.

Mr Mosley has provided £3.8million toward the regulator's running costs, funnelling the money via two charities. 

However, his lawyers have demanded that the Mail removes references to the regulator being 'financed', 'funded', 'bankrolled' by, 'financially reliant' on or 'in the pocket' of Mr Mosley.

They claim that it is inaccurate to make such claims, because a judicial review ruled that the elaborate set-up he uses to funnel money to Impress means the regulator can still be independent.

Mr Mosley's legal bid is the latest in a string of attempts he has made to muzzle the Press since the News of the World exposé. 

He has donated £500,000 to Tom Watson, the deputy Labour leader and culture spokesman. Mr Watson is such a fierce critic of newspapers he has even co-authored a damning book – Dial M For Murdoch – about Rupert Murdoch, the News of the World's former owner.

Mr Mosley has fought an unsuccessful legal campaign to force newspapers to warn people before publishing details about their lives, in order that they can seek an injunction to stop it.

[size=32]Max Mosley accused of 'muzzling press'[/size]


he former Formula 1 boss Max Mosley has been accused of trying to use data protection laws to "gag the press for his own advantage".
Mr Mosley's lawyers have written to several newspapers, demanding they stop publishing details he considers not to be in the public interest.
But Trevor Kavanagh, the Sun's associate editor, said Mr Mosley was "using his considerable fortune to muzzle the press".
Mr Mosley called this "nonsense".
A letter was sent to the Sun, the Times, the Daily Mail and the Daily Mirror, warning them against publishing details of two subjects.
They include Mr Mosley's relationship to the press regulator, Impress and the 2008 party that was at the heart of his privacy action against the News of the World.
"People need to know that he is doing this because of a story about a sadomasochistic sex orgy in which he was personally involved," Mr Kavanagh told Radio 4's Today programme.
"He wants this erased from the record."

In 2008, the High Court ruled the News of the World did breach Mr Mosley's privacy, awarding him £60,000 in damages.
Mr Mosley admitted he had taken part in a sado-masochistic sex session with five prostitutes, but denied that it had a Nazi theme.
He has since become a prominent privacy campaigner, funding the independent press regulator Impress through a family charity. Though officially-recognised, no UK national newspapers have signed up to it.
Impress "would not survive and could not operate without (Mr Mosley's) money", Mr Kavanagh said.
This was true - Mr Mosley said - but added: "What I object to is them pretending that I control or influence Impress, which I don't".

'Smear campaign'

Mr Mosley told the BBC that he believed it was due to his ties to Impress that he had been attacked by some newspapers "constantly referring to the News of the World story" and by "falsely saying that I'm paying for Impress whereas in fact, it's independent".
Writing for Press Gazette, he said newspapers were doing this "in an attempt to smear me and Impress by association".
"The lawyers wrote a letter and you would expect the lawyers for the newspapers to write a letter back saying 'you're wrong, this is not the law'," he told Today. "In fact what happens is two full pages in the Daily Mail attacking me."
Responding to the letter, the Mail called it a "chilling new attack on press freedom".
Impress have lobbied for Section 40 of the Crime and Courts Act to be enacted.
If implemented, it could see newspapers forced to pay legal costs in libel and privacy cases, even if they won, if they don't sign up to an officially-approved regulator.
Mr Kavanagh said this would "cripple the newspaper industry".

Hi sallypelt,which is much what Private eye editor Ian Hislop had stated,but was derided by the MSM!
That what is the point of changing the rules and Regulations,where you have won on Libel cases, then have to pay the other sides costs(Proven against them) on future challenges?
Leveson cost a lot of Money and Years for what,Ex Judges and Judicial figures,Civil Servants,Secretaries,spending years collating information for Leveson Two?
What it did show was the uneasiness of Government Officials being challenged and exposed of Hypocritical practices on polocies as Laws they had introduced for the public to adhere to?
It did leave a certain taste in the mouth that something wasn't right in society,with all of the mystical figures being caught with their pants literally around their ankles,where it meant more about their vanity being protected,other than running Governmental procedures?
The sullied and tawdry practices being exposed of how the Press Barons had bank rolled"Government Ministers,Captains of Industries" and their transgressions,Sailing on Boats,swilling champers on there weekend off?

If only the Mainstream voters were made aware, that over Sixty percent of the House of Commons had Multi millionaires deciding on the Laws of the Land,United Kingdom,that it would need for over a Ten percent swing to out vote them on any issue!?
Government of the masses by the few, Seventy million People pay for the,650 MP's,800 Lords and Dames to be kept in the finest of traditions,Democracy UK style,as exported around the World Imperialism!

So, under increasing pressure, Max Mosley states that the press should stop hounding him and go after the people hounding the Dowlers and the McCanns.

Who needs enemies when you have friends like him ?

PS    I'm in no way relating the Milly Dowler tragedy with that of Madeleine McCann

JEREMY CORBYN TO THE BRITISH PRESS: "WE ARE COMING FOR YOU"

Post by Tony Bennett on 28.02.18 8:55

@polyenne wrote:So, under increasing pressure, Max Mosley states that the press should stop hounding him and go after the people hounding the Dowlers and the McCanns.
Let us not forget Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn's direct threat last week to muzzle the British free press.

His friendship with Soviet spies in the past was revealed by a former Czech spy, who claims that Corbyn was a very useful supplier of information to Soviet intelligence agents - though there is no evidence that he was paid by them.

Corbyn attacked the press in a video rant last week and gave out a very sinister warning to the British press: "CHANGE IS COMING".

It's useful to recall Jeremy Corbyhn's track record as a friend of Britain's enemies:

Corbyn supported IRA terrorism
Corbyn helped Soviet spies
Corbyn welcomed Hezbollah, Hamas and Iranian terrorists to meetings in Britain: 'our friends', he called them.

Corbyn was also a backer of the corrupt, Communist, regime in Venezuela, whose policies have now put millions of Venezuelans in severe poverty. 

Corbyn is a very dangerous man. However bad the Conservatives and the other parties may be, let us never put Corbyn and his foaming-at-the-mouth militant Momentum cronies in power:

========================

https://blogs.spectator.co.uk/2018/02/jeremy-corbyns-change-is-coming-warning-to-the-press-is-chilling/

JEREMY CORBYN'S "CHANGE IS COMING" WARNING TO THE PRESS IS CHILLING (Corbyn's video rant is in the link above)  

What a convenient inconvenience the row about Jeremy Corbyn’s links with a Czechoslovakian agent is for the Labour leader. While the allegations that he was an informant during the Cold War may well be the ‘nonsense’ that he claims they are (they certainly don’t seem to correlate with anything released at the end of that period), the way a number of newspapers have covered them has given him an opportunity to launch an attack on the press.

In what tabloids might term a ‘bizarre video rant’, Corbyn said the newspapers had ‘gone a bit James Bond’ with these ‘smears’, before warning the ‘media barons’ that ‘change is coming’. Some of his comrades have suggested that this ‘change’ means that Corbyn wants the second stage of the Leveson Inquiry to go ahead, which is something we’ve known for a little while.

It’s tempting to dismiss this video as just the sort of thing Corbyn does – grandly attacking the press on social media in order to rally his supporters, who already despise the mainstream media – but it’s a little more serious than that. You see, Corbyn already has the necessary mechanisms with which to prevent press smears: he can sue the newspapers and force them to prove the truth of the allegations they are printing in court. This is what he threatened to do last night to Ben Bradley, who had tweeted something that the Tory MP was never going to be able to prove. Our libel laws are so robust that people have sued for far less: indeed, a comic is currently being sued by her ex-husband for incorporating details of the breakdown of their marriage in her routine, which must be sending a chill up and down the spines of all those comedians who manage to spin entire shows out of their relationships. There is a convention whereby politicians don’t tend to sue newspapers unless they print stories about their personal lives, but Corbyn isn’t exactly a conventional politician.

What the Labour leader is doing isn’t so much threatening the press with Leveson 2, which naturally the press doesn’t want, but undermining the press as a vital part of democracy. It’s something that all politicians who find the scrutiny of journalists a bit irritating and time-consuming tend to do: they run down the media constantly so that it then appears much more acceptable for that politician to clamp down on it. You can find examples of this across the world, from Russia to Venezuela to Donald Trump, and it rarely stops at just running down the printed media.

This isn’t, by the way, a defence of the press: the best political argument I’ve ever heard about politicians and the media came from Charles Walker, who told Parliament during one of the debates following the first part of the Leveson Inquiry that ‘we have a pretty revolting press in this country’ but that he suspected enshrining regulation of that revolting press in law would be something Parliamentarians might live to regret.

Corbyn may well have a right to be angry about the spying allegations, though frankly if voters haven’t been put off him by the knowledge that he invited two convicted IRA volunteers to Parliament two weeks after the Brighton bombing, then this spy business isn’t going to have much of an impact on his chances of becoming Prime Minister. But the problem with politicians deciding how newspapers should behave is that they do have something of a vested interest in the press being rather meek. Just as we might not ask turkeys to oversee supermarket orders for the festive season, we might also conclude that even admirable politicians may also struggle to see the wood for the trees on press regulation.

Corbyn makes clear the problems with letting politicians loose on the press in his video. First he referred to a story about him that he disagreed with, and then he threatened the press that ‘change is coming’. It’s difficult to argue that there is no personal bias at play here.

This isn’t just a problem emanating from Jeremy Corbyn, though. He will find that he has a great deal of support for stricter controls on the press across the Commons at present. It’s not just MPs in his own party who think the newspapers need to be called to heel, but Tories smarting from the coverage of the sexual harassment scandal, too. So this video is absolutely not just something for the social media fans. It should worry anyone who wants an inconvenient, messy, sharp democracy.

Hi Mr Bennett, I acknowledge that perhaps Jeremy Corbyn may not be your desired choice as a possible future Prime Minister of the UK.
In regards to"Press Freedom",have they ever been Free to write the Truth or their version of the Truth?
If we had a fair honest press here in the UK,do you think they would inform the public of below events"Truthfully"?

The UK have just seen how dishonest the MP's really are,in that the"Sex Scandal in Parliament",they the MP's have decided it is in their Best interest Not to name any accused persons,yet presumably they would stand Trail in a Public Court,where the accused person has been named by the charging authorities,CPS/DPP,one rule for plebs,another rule for the governors?

For years now the"All innocent,MP's Lords"have never ever been involved in child abuse,in 1995 Tim Fortescue"spilt the Proverbial","When Politician's come to Us,the whips Office" with a problem,such as little Boys,doesn't that ring alarm Bells,that they have covered Up this practice for years!?
not everyone has died from the 1960's onward,s they remember the Press Stories of Sexual allegations,of how the UK Police MI5 confiscated evidence from them,then threatened Editors if they reproduce any stories relating to their findings,they would end up incarcerated in Prison?
People still remember members of House Of Common's,Lords Chambers, Parliament promoting Sex with minors as young as Ten yrs of age,these people make the rule for Society,yet wanted adults to legally engage in Sexual practices with minors?
Then we have the Miners Strike,Orgreave,decimation of the Steel Industry,where the European Community prospered whilst Margaret Thatcher decimated her own communities throughout the UK,some have never recovered!

Where were the press when the"Truthful accounts of Police malpractice" was being uncovered,"Mysterious Deaths in custody"taken in fit and well,came out in a different state!
Birmingham Six,Hills Borough Stadium,Unsolved Murder of Daniel Morgan,Government Cover Up,Police Corruption?
Anyone care to add Jeremy Bamber Case to another Cover Up, Essex Police Tony,with No forensic evidence against him,only Stories sold to the News Of The World by his ex girlfriend and PII's put in place by Government Officials?
His cousins Fleeced the family Estates properties,whilst he was incarcerated "safely away"from his cousins deeds?  
Yet the same Police force Essex,stated the"Thesis for Murders"(JB) Inheritance of the Estates,but he hasn't prospered,but Essex Police do Not want to know of What malpractices(Fraud squad Informed done Nothing about it) his cousin's got up to,they've nailed it on Jeremy,job well done Essex Police Crime Targets being met!

Then we have the Madeleine McCann case,which we all know about Carter Ruck and you Court appearance in the High Court,where even their Best Legal Advisers had to state,"It was what their clients Had Told Them",why weren;t the Family who made the claims,told to "Officially Swear before the Court" Not their Lawyers?

Prosecutors ask Scotland Yard to consider whether Max Mosley committed perjury at orgy privacy trial
 
   Met Police said they will assess Daily Mail evidence on the former F1 boss 
   Newspaper submitted dossier to Crown Prosecution Service who passed it to detectives
   CPS statement came hours after Daily Mail raised questions about evidence given by Mr Mosley when he successfully sued News of the World 10 years ago
    
By Stephen Wright and Sam Greenhill and Bill Akass For The Daily Mail
 
Published: 16:35, 28 February 2018 | Updated: 18:17, 28 February 2018
 
Prosecutors have asked Scotland Yard to consider whether Max Mosley lied at his orgy privacy trial. 
The dramatic move came after the Daily Mail today submitted a dossier to the Crown Prosecution Service from its investigation into the former Formula One chief's evidence at his landmark court battle in 2008.
A CPS spokesperson said: 'I can confirm that information was received from the Mail and has been passed to the Metropolitan Police.'
Detectives are now expected to carefully consider the file from the Mail and decide whether to launch a full scale investigation into Mr Mosley's conduct.
 
 
A Met Police spokesman said: 'This afternoon the CPS forwarded information from the Daily Mail to the Met Police. An assessment will be carried out.' 
The CPS statement came hours after the Daily Mail raised questions about evidence given by Mr Mosley when he successfully sued the News of the World ten years ago.
Under oath at the High Court, Mr Mosley – the youngest son of Sir Oswald Mosley - was asked about his political activities as a young man supporting his father's post-war party the Union Movement.
He categorically denied putting out racist election leaflets at the Moss Side by-election in 1961 which said 'coloured immigrants' spread 'tuberculosis, VD and other terrible diseases like leprosy' and should be sent 'home'. The leaflet added: 'Coloured immigration threatens your children's health.'
Asked about the existence of the leaflet at the High Court, Mr Mosley said 'if there was such a leaflet, you would be able to produce it', adding he could 'not recall' it. He said it was 'absolute nonsense' to suggest such a pamphlet was put out.
But the Daily Mail found the leaflet in a historical archive in Manchester.
In a heated interview on Channel 4 News on Tuesday, Mr Mosley furiously denied he had told lies at the High Court. 
 
The issue was raised at Prime Minister's Questions today, where Tom Watson - who has received donations from Mr Mosley - sat next to Jeremy Corbyn. Theresa May said: 'I think some people would have been surprised to learn of those links with some leading politicians'
 
A major investigation by the Mail last night revealed the racist and thuggish past of ex-Formula One boss Max Mosley
The CPS announcement came after the Labour party said it will not accept any more donations from Mr Mosley. 
A senior Labour source described the views expressed in the leaflet as 'repugnant' and said neither deputy leader Tom Watson, who has received more than £500,000 in donations from Mr Mosley, nor the party would take any further payments from him.
'The Labour Party has moved away for large-scale donations from wealthy individuals,' the source said.
'I don't believe that there will be any more payments from Max Mosley to the Labour Party or Tom Watson. The last payments were made last year.'   
Earlier this month, Mosley cited his victory in the orgy court case to demand newspapers erase the past by scrubbing his sex party from public record. He is attempting to use the Data Protection Act to prevent the media from ever mentioning it or his funding of media regulator Impress again
 
This pamphlet was produced in support of one Walter Hesketh. In November 1961, Mr Hesketh was the Union Movement's parliamentary candidate for Moss Side
The Mail investigation reveals that Mr Mosley has consistently erased controversial events in his life, either by not referring to them in his self-serving 2015 autobiography or by glossing over them when giving evidence to parliamentary committees. 
Mr Mosley – via a family trust – is almost single-handedly bankrolling Impress, the controversial state-approved regulator of the Press that is shunned by every national newspaper. This has led to questions about Impress's independence.
 
Mr Mosley – via a family trust – is almost single-handedly bankrolling Impress, the controversial state-approved regulator of the Press. He appeared on Channel 4 News tonight
And he has given more than half a million pounds to Tom Watson – a sum that is one of the biggest political donations in modern British history.
Mr Watson who, as shadow culture secretary, would be in charge of overseeing media regulation if Labour came to power, makes no secret of his quest for greater curbs on the Press.
The revelations about Mr Mosley's racist past raise troubling questions about whether the senior MP – 30 per cent of whose constituents in West Bromwich East in the Midlands are from ethnic minorities – was right to accept £540,000 in donations to date.
Mr Watson has said he is 'proud to call Mr Mosley a friend' while Mr Mosley, who tried to become a Tory MP under Margaret Thatcher in 1983 but was rejected by the Conservative Party, has lauded the Labour frontbencher as a 'very admirable politician, a fearless campaigner against injustice and a good man'.
 
Questioned over the leaflet on Channel 4 News last night, Mr Mosley said: 'This was a statement in a leaflet which I am not even sure is genuine, which would never reflect my view, it would not reflect my view then or now because I simply wouldn't dream of insulting people.'  
He added: 'I have never been a racist, I am not a racist, never will be a racist.'

Madeleine McCann's father and Max Mosley to tell MPs about the media

Madeleine McCann's father and motorsport boss Max Mosley will give evidence to MPs today about their treatment by the media.

9:32AM GMT 10 Mar 2009


Gerry McCann and Mr Mosley have been invited to answer questions from members of the Culture, Media and Sport Committee.
Their evidence will form part of an ongoing inquiry into press standards, privacy and libel.
Mr McCann will be joined by his spokesman, Clarence Mitchell, and his lawyer Adam Tudor, a partner in leading libel firm Carter-Ruck.
The MPs are expected to ask Mr McCann, 40, why he and his wife Kate, 41, chose to sue a number of British newspapers for defamation instead of going through regulatory body the Press Complaints Commission.
In March last year Express Newspapers agreed to pay the couple £550,000 in libel damages over false allegations that they were responsible for their daughter's death.
Madeleine was nearly four when she went missing from her family's holiday apartment in Praia da Luz, southern Portugal, on May 3, 2007, while her parents dined with friends nearby.
Despite a massive police operation and huge publicity worldwide, she has not been found.
Mr Mosley, 68, president of motorsport governing body the FIA, won £60,000 in privacy damages against the News of the World last year over a story claiming he took part in a "sick Nazi orgy".
He has announced plans to challenge the UK's privacy laws in the European Court of Human Rights to require British newspapers to notify people before publishing private information about them.
Mr Mosley will give evidence to the committee on Tuesday morning, followed by Mr McCann in the afternoon.
