MOD gagging newspaper?
I've just read a rather disturbing comment on a forum.
The MOD are planning to shut down some of its operations in Telford and relocate them elsewhere in the country. This is one of the usual "we won't do anything without consultation" scams we've come to expect lately - the replacement site has already been bought and the decision has been made.
The local paper here - the Shropshire Star - has been giving extensive coverage to the events but according to that article, the MOD have told the Shropshire Star not to publish any more stories on it without their approval.
Now correct me if I'm wrong but the MOD, as a military organisation and not a civillian one, have no authority over a newspaper or any other civillian organisation, company or person unless Marshall Law is declared?
