BeautifulBurnout – CalamityJane123 exalts Ben Emerson QC – “I have to admit to being a bit of a fan of Emmerson (and, for that matter, Emerson)”.

I doubt the admiration will be reciprocated.

So what do we know about Ben Emmerson QC?

He has a record of representing media clients in free speech cases, and has also acted in most of the major cases over the last decade concerning limits on the right to demonstrate. 

I cannot imagine Ben Emerson QC asking the Guardian to undertake such an attack on Freedom of Speech by asking it to remove thousands of contributions he might have made as a barrister, many about law related discussions following articles that have appeared in its online edition over a period of many years.

Yet as this account shows, this is exactly what BeautifulBurnout – CalamityJane123 did in January 2013.
