Time for an open and honest debate about Migration Watch?

I nicked that title from this post here which offers an argument that I'd fully subscribe to.

Following in the very successful steps of the British Chiropractic Association in using the libel laws to challenge their critics, the right-wing think-tank Migration Watch has turned it's learned friends on Sally Bercow, a Labour activist.

David Allen Green, formerly Jack of Kent and his colleagues at Preiskel & Co are acting for Ms Bercow. For me, the rights and wrongs of this run behind the simple rule that you shouldn't use the libel laws to suppress open debate.

End of.
