The Defamation Bill has its second reading debate in the Lords today

Dear Friends

We're still waiting for a public interest defence as the Defamation Bill goes to the House of Lords.

The Defamation Bill has its second reading debate in the Lords tomorrow. This will be the first chance members of the Lords have had to talk about the Bill and the problems it was introduced to solve. The government said when they published the Bill in May that its aim was to protect the culture of open debate that scientists, authors, bloggers, doctors and consumer groups need to scrutinise and criticise products and claims. But it is yet to fulfil its promise because the Bill lacks a strong public interest defence. Until this is remedied, scientists, human rights NGOs, consumer groups, authors and doctors will continue to be silenced. At its last appearance in the Commons, MPs unanimously said they hope the Lords makes the substantial changes the Bill needs.

You can watch tomorrow's House of Lords debate from 15:00 here: (confirmed speakers so far include Joan Bakewell, Alan Sugar and Onora O'Neill) and follow @freedebate and #libelreform on Twitter for updates.

We will be back in touch after the debate tomorrow to let you know what kind of final push is needed, as the Bill moves on to Committee stage in the Lords, to get the Government to accept that the Defamation Bill needs serious changes.

Retired DCI Gonçalo Amaral: "The English can always present the conclusions to which they themselves arrived in 2007. Because they know, they have the evidence of what happened - they don't need to investigate anything. All this is now a mere 'show off'."

Retired murder DCI Colin Sutton: "I would also like to make the point that Operation Grange was so restricted from the start as to be destined to fail."

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley made public on national TV that Operation Grange is a complete fraud.

Ex-DCI Andy Redwood had a "revelation moment" on BBC's Crimewatch on 14th October 2013 when he announced that Operation Grange had eliminated the Tanner sighting - which opened up the 'window of opportunity', in accordance with their remit, to allow the fake abduction to happen.

Despite "irrelevant behaviour" from blood and cadaver dogs in the McCann's apartment, on Kate McCann's clothes, and in the car they hired three weeks after Maddie disappeared, Ex-Chief Inspector, Ian Horrocks, said: "The thought that Kate and Gerry McCann had anything to do with the death of their daughter is frankly preposterous."

Gerry McCann called for example to be made of 'trolls'. SKY News reporter Martin Brunt doorstepped Brenda Leyland on 2 October 2014. She was then found dead in a Leicester hotel room. Brenda paid the price. She paid with her life.

Ex-Deputy Chief Constable, Jim Gamble QPM, congratulated SKY reporter, Martin Brunt, on twitter for doorstepping Brenda Leyland on behalf of Gerry McCann.
