BBC Caves in to Carter Ruck Threats Over Trafigura Film

Via Iain Dale's Diary: BBC Caves in to Carter Ruck Threats Over Trafigura Film Carter-Ruck have succeeded in persuading the BBC to remove all reference to the Trafigura story from its website, according to the New Statesman. Newsnight. Trafigura. Law firm Carter-Ruck. Private Eye. Toxic waste. Twitter. And I repeat the same request as Iain Dale asked: Could I encourage every single UK blogger to embed this video in their blogs too?

  1. I have to wonder why in view of the Guardian's 'victory' earlier this year. Sadly this merely lowers my opinion of the BBC.
    It's also a very hollow 'victory' for Trafigura, and Carter Ruck, as it will now be shown all over the internet!
    Take care, Flighty xx

  2. I wonder why too. It's hard to believe the BBC gave in. And like you, it lowers my opinion of the BBC too.

    As you say Flighty, it is indeed a very hollow victory for Trafigura and Carter Ruck since it just means everyone is showing it all over the internet.
