Local blogger ordered to remove youtube video by national standards committee

“The Standards Board” have ordered Martin Mullaney to take down a video he put on youtube.

He might be a local councillor but he broke no known laws – this is entirely at the mercy of the Standards Board who found that he had been “disrespectful”. What sort of precedent might that set if allowed to stand?

Martin’s co conspirator! Councilor Ernie Hendricks is due to be suspended for a month for his hard work. Martin might yet apologiseĀ  and avoid his suspension, Ernie is standing firm. The video has still been censored though.

Just looking at this from a blogging perspective.
