1000s tweet McAlpine was accused in unbroadcast section of Newsnight


In response to the threats made to twitterers by Lord McAlpine and his lawyers, the following tweet has gone viral.

FROM DAVID ICKE -
Please Tweet (and get others to Retweet) the following:
I hear that Lord McAlpine is the man that Steve Messham named in an unbroadcast part of his interview with the BBC. #McAlpine #DavidIcke
It has the benefit that not a single word of this statement is not true or can be challenged as not being true or is libellous in any way because it is all in the public arena.


UPDATE -



UPDATE - Recent manoevers in the McAlpine/Twitter saga  appear to have resulted in a considerable lessening of the threat to twitterers.  Those who tweeted or retweeted that McAlpine was to be named by the BBC Newsnight as a paedophile, or similar, have been asked by McAlpine's lawyers to donate £5 to charity as their penance.   He can't sue them all.  There are just too many.

Is this a first victory of the internet over British libel laws?  If enough numbers of people tweet an allegation, the threat to sue becomes rather academic.  The story is so quickly in the public domain, as the path from unknown to known information is made up of tens of thousands of rapid little steps, which cannot be stopped by subsequent legal threat.   It's like trying to halt a swarm of insects with a catapult.

In fact, in this case, I think it's fair to say that making the legal threat to twitterers has been counter productive to the threat maker.  His reputation took an even bigger hit than if he had stopped where he was, and used a different tactic with the twitter community, such as joining in with the cry for further investigation into the outrageous torture and rape of innocent children in Britain's children's homes.  It's the total silence from elite secret society members about these crimes which assures us that they are almost all entirely guilty.  (other than the setting up of a ludicrous number of enquiries,  every single one of which is aimed at crushing the witnesses and victims and burying their allegations).

Steve Messham says McAlpine was wrongly identified, yet he did identify him before the inevitable reaction.

Macca's eyes say it all, what a horrible old man, he didnt need that taxpayer pay out, couldnt he have given it to charidee or some worthwhile cause?. Read somewhere that he is descended from royalty?, wonder if he is a decendant of that Scots king who stabbed Wallace in the back after he had done all the fighting?

But - predictably - no mention of it in the MSM - only yesterday's Independent story about whether or not this business will change Twitter.

He might sue someone from MSM or person by previous arrangements but he can not sue anybody from truly alternative media (as he didn't with Scallywag) or even truth wariors on the web.

Why? Because in defence not only his company's properties (he was CEO) was used by Jimmie McAlpine for regular parties but mainly because the defence can bring out all the dirty laundry for them to disprove which leads to naming many powerful names dragged in which is the last thing they want. They know history well how suing can turn the tables as the uncontrolled truth comes out by defence:

This isnt about freedom of speech

Its not even about Lord McAlpine.

Its about that the assault of a child is amongst the most horrific crime possible for a person to commit. I have no doubt that you, reading this right now, are not a paedophile. So ask yourself this. How would you like it if someone called you one? On twitter (ie to the millions of users online)?

Don't support trial by twitter. If any person has committed a crime, he should be tried by jury. To take that right away is worse taking away right of free speech.

The problem is that enquiries are rigged, witnesses are killed and main media is muzzled. Try again. There has to be a way through for the victims. If I was a victim, I would want any communication device that helped me.

Look at all the victims, formerly silent now speaking out. Savile was exposed by bloggers - David Icke first (in his book The Biggest secret 1998), The Tap latterly (2011) amongst many others. He was exposed in Scallywag but the editor was silenced. Information the elite networks want kept out of the public domain, rarely gets there. Blogs and twitter give victims another chance.
