Whatever your views on Jon Venables release and subsequent return to prison there surely can be no disagreement on our right to know what he did to warrant this.
The Injustice Secretary, or whatever Jack Straw is officially called these days, says we don't have a right to know and other Labour politicians have expressed the opinion that the law decides this and that it isn't in the public interest.
Where in law does it say that the public do not have a right to know what crime a criminal has committed? How can the re-imprisonment of a serious offender not be public interest?
In these times when "rights" are scattered around like confetti at a wedding, it is increasingly obvious that certain "rights" of certain people trump those of all others - and it's us, the law abiding majority, whose rights are least respected.
