Quotes

The Open Rights GroupGroup a campaigning organisation, has responded with concern over Cartier's legal action however: "If the claimants are successful, the ruling could be used as a basis for applications for blocking orders that are contrary to the public interest."
ORG's legal director, Elizabeth Knight , said: "As the court is being asked to extend the circumstances in which blocking orders are granted, it's vital that the wider public interest is taken into account. We hope that our intervention will help ensure that future claimants cannot use blocking orders to restrict legitimate activity or free speech."
"They think I'm some kind of crazy liberal idiot rather than a patriot who really cares about citizens' freedom."
7.30pm TV doctor Hilary Jones will be in the chair for the Big Health Quiz. Delegates can form teams beforehand, or just turn up and take part and "pit your health and social care knowledge with the best in the business."
