Oh you have no idea how much fun it was thinking up that title.
In case you don’t know, Hunt is in a whole heap of trouble after evidence emerged during the Leveson Inquiry, which appeared to show his support and collusion with News Corp, in their bid for BSkyB.
Interestingly, Hunt recently opposed an application for a judicial review of an advertisement ban, placed on London Christian Radio (Premier Radio) by the Radio Advertising Clearance Centre (RACC).
The advert in question encouraged Christians to report their experiences of marginalisation in the work place.
Here is the text of the offending radio advert:
“We are CCP. Surveys have shown that over 60% of active Christians consider that Christians are being increasingly marginalised in the workplace.
We are concerned to get the most accurate data to inform the public debate.
We will then use this data to help make a fairer society.
Please visit CCP magazines.co.uk and report your experiences.”
Hunt and the RACC deemed this ‘political’ and promptly banned it. Hunt then attempted to block a judicial review of the banning. A judge has now upheld the ban and makes this interesting comment on Hunt:
But he stressed that the MP’s stance was not “anti-Christian” and that his reasoning could apply to any other religion.
Yeah, that would be because Hunt is such an impartial chap.
I think today gives the lie to that.
Anyway, if you want to get to the legal nitty-gritty and controversies on this banning case, you’d do no better than clicking this link.
