And the Wankley goes to ... Shane Dowling, for gleefully ignoring the justice system

    It is a sad day when Crikey no longer supports a free press.
    Even if the reporter is a Blogger, he should be allowed freedom to report the truth.

    When has a defendant of limited means ever been granted a suppression order?
    Like SLAPP writs & defamation, tools of the tools already too well tooled up to beat the rest of us about the head.
    This guy is a larrikan & idiot.
    Long live larrikans – this country will be poor indeed without them.
