A former Labour activist is taken Gordon Brown to Brighton County Court today for breach of contract over the promise for a referendum on the EU
Stuart Bower, a former police officer, and also a former constituency secretary for Hove Labour Party in 1997 has had the papers served and the Government is apparently going to defend itself in open court. If there is a case to answer it will be referred to the High Court.
One would have thought that such an action was relatively newsworthy, wouldn't you?
As Dizzy points out, isn't it strange, then, that there should be no mention of it on the BBC website?
Mind you, I suppose that the BBC wouldn't want to offend its paymasters.
It's down to the unique way that the BBC is funded...
UPDATE: thanks to Nosemonkey who points out in the comments that, in fact, the Beeb did cover it. I should have checked more carefully, rather than believing one of these rumour-mongering blogs...! mea culpa.
