This evening, Labour tabled in the House, with her permission, a statement from the woman that Richard Worth harrassed with his corrupt ‘jobs for favours’ proposals. Journalists got copies and have quoted from it but not shown it.
Except, the Herald briefly posted an image of it.
Here’s why we’re in a quandary. We’ve been sent a copy of that image. Should we post it?
The statement is now public information. In theory, ordinary members of the public can get to see papers that have been tabled in the House. On the other hand, would it be an unnecessary invasion of the woman’s privacy? That’s presumably why the Herald took it down.
What do you think?
