The Guardian outs Ryan Giggs


So the poll we ran said the NOTW or Sun would out the first injunction name.

The Scottish Herald, despite being in Scotland, could have done so but put up a picture.

The Guardian have gone one better and said it was Ryan Giggs.

Who would have thought that eh?

The fact they were reporting what an MP said is even more interesting.

[We maybe wrong and there is money on this so please someone tell us the Guardian wasn't first]

  5. It was the Sunday Herald - they printed the picture on the front page AND named him inside, e.g.:

  6. The ironic thing is everyone already knows so make a complete farce of the law anyway. Well-done twitter for paving the way for free speech.
