This past week left me a little confused (it doesn't take a lot!) but I just felt I had to post my thoughts.
I'm talking the whole 'Sally Bercow Tweeting Fiasco.'
Now the way I see it (and please don't shoot me down in flames here - remember this is MY blog, MY opinions) - yes, she was possibly in possession of certain information from inside rumours, but at no point did she reveal anything that should have seen her standing up in court to defend herself or paying costs.
An ambiguous tweet 'Why is Lord McAlpine trending? *innocent face*' is not calling someone a paedophile. We cannot have people in court for what a tweet MIGHT have implied.
If we can, because of the trickiness of words, the courts will quite simply not be able to cope in the future.
I can think of several people who would like to haul me over the coals for what I MIGHT have tweeted - but, at the end of the day, anything can be read into anything.
Give people the benefit of the doubt, guys, and don't read what you think is written.
