Editor’s blog Thursday 23 September 2010: Unison's 'hokey-cokey' legal challenge to the White Paper
The interweb is a wonderful thing - sometimes - but this story on BBC News has changed rather radically in the past half-hour.
Originally, it reported Unison as having claimed they had won the right to a judicial review of the White Paper.
In its current iteration, it withdraws that claim.
Unison's legal challenge could thus be compared to the SAS - skilled in getting in and out with as few people as possible noticing.
Their actual press release is more circumspect in its claim that they have won the right to a hearing.
A hearing of a legal case is not a judicial review.
