Economics and similar, for the sleep-deprived
A subtle change has been made to the comments links, so they no longer pop up. Does this in any way help with the problem about comments not appearing on permalinked posts, readers?

Remotely attractive test cases ...
... and the seemingly congenital inability of British civil liberties campaigners to find them. The Trafigura case was a genuine issue of considerable public interest, where the superinjunction clearly impaired a sensible and necessary debate. But apparently the face of the superinjunction campaign is going to be a really murky, really squalid case with more than a hint of blackmail to it.
Why? I think two reasons. First, as with the NatWest Three in the US extradition treaty case, the public relations industry is involved. And second, the newspaper publishing industry wants to win a weak case, not a strong one, in order to set as wide a precedent as possible.
