  • Tesco seem to want to reignite the row about how much personal data they hold by suggesting it could be used as a credit reference tool.
  • The Telegraph looks at which sections of t he Fraud Act 2006 may apply when prosecuting MPs for false expense claims.
  • The row over the jurisdiction of the ICC will again be tested, this time as Amnesty insist that if the President of Sudan accepts an invitation to Denmark, he should be arrested.  I think Omar al Bashir will have the sense not to test the theory in a European country.

  • The BNP, so keen on publicity that they have barred journalists from their conference, passed a motion to extend their membership criteria in response to the High Court ruling that their old policy contravened the Race Relations Act 1973.  The full (presumably second hand) story is in The Guardian.
  • Stories like this are the best case for the International Criminal Court. If those involved they were likely to be tried by an independent international body, it would be a far more effective deterrent than a court martial.
  • Surely lots of extra points for the lawyer who can show that Simon Cowell is liable for this story in The Telegraph.
