I think they were trying to prevent their adopted kids from being involved. I remember when the Daily Mail used to be quite a good newspaper (it was a while ago)

Cant see what an eleven day old page of the Daily Mail, Has anything interesting to normal people, I believe everybody who has some interest in other peoples sex lives already knew, who and what had gone on, as it had already been published in so many newspapers across the world. In fact the Mail itself was only guilty of using what is known as a spoiler tactic. I dont expect I am teaching you anything Reindeer, But it was the Sun (On Sunday) that first made this small innocuous story, into a must be reported one,as it wanted to print the story but had a block put on it. A Judge in the High Court HAS decided to lift the ban placed on the English press but is waiting until later this week in case the couple involved wish to appeal (IN England, we all get a chance). Yes the couple have two adopted children, It is for there sakes that the couple first applied for a printed ban. Personally I find it in poor taste for anybody to mock this Family because one of them had a different idea of Family Life to the majority of us. If I wanted to bet on who told the Sun On Sunday, I know where my money would go. That is my piece said, I just hope if anybody got or gets a kick out of the story, when it is told, has nothing they wish to keep quiet.

a truly free and independent press is a vital component of any healthy democratic society!

I did believe that although we rarely agree,you had some substance to most of your debates, But to say a truly free and Independent press is a vital part(blah blah blah) If you can name me any newspaper that is truly free and independent, then I willl say that you are so gullible that perhaps you should be banned feom reading newspapers for your own sake.Just have a look at who owns Newspapers albeit Beaverbrook , Rothermere, Thompson, and even the modern day tribe,not one of them is truly honest,nor truly independent,they understand the meaning of one thing and that is power, So please dont try to tell me about Press and freedom,I have been there seen it worked in it,and true and independent it aint. .

Just remember that particular bastion of freedom and independence also published pictures of Ex Pat pensioners drinking Sangria in the pool saying that's how their winter fuel allowance was spent. Never let truth get in the way of a good story or selling papers. It seems impartiality has gone out of the window for the referendum as well.
