Now this is free speech

Awesome revenge.

A husband who humiliated a millionaire City broker who had an affair with his wife by exposing graphic details of the relationship on Twitter and in internet blogs walked free from court yesterday, claiming a “victory for free speech”.

His lawyer had the best ever comment though.

Mr Puddick’s barrister, Michael Wolkind QC, argued that his client had a right to expose Mr Haynes’s behaviour.

“His websites are his scream of frustration and even his scream of pain,” he told the court.’’

Mr Wolkind added: “He wouldn’t take it lying down – unlike, sadly, his wife did for years in her relationship with Tim Haynes.”
