Ok, posted topic once and the Anti All things Army jumped on the thread and turned it off Topic. and it was taken down for that reason. I hope this can stay up this time and just the Oxygen thieves post taken down This thread is in relation to banning the Sun Newspaper http://www.arrse.co.uk/cpgn2/Forums/viewtopic/t=22267.html This is not about who did what, but about why we don't sue the press more often. I know the argument about the cost of bring such action towards the press for the humble Pte could look a tad horrifying. However there is the Army Legal Aid scheme, Civ Legal Aid and most Law firms that deal with defamation casework do have the No win No fee scheme based on the strength of the case. End of the day, the Forces get a bad deal from the Press and the forces fail time and time again to take legal action against the press. So back to thread, is it time that service people start taking on those Jernos, newspapers that time again slate not only the good name of the Forces but also the reputations of those who's name is spread across the pages. As before Col Collins was a prime example who grabbed the bull by the horns and gave them a bloody nose. It stopped then doing it again to him and im sure the press would think twice before making accusation towards him again. Should the MOD do more in helping finance a soldier or Officer if he rightly wants to defend his reputation and that of the Forces? Oxygen thieves need not apply.
