Guido published an image of the notorious ‘Fake Sheik’ last Thursday.

Recess Monkey also published the image, but has now removed it following a gagging order from News of the World.

There’s a very good question here: On what grounds have they persuaded a Judge to issue a Court Order preventing publication of this tosser’s picture?

I’m sure we’ll all find out soon enough… and I’m equally sure that if it doesn’t stand up to scrutiny, then the name Denis Donaldson will be used in a suitably dramatic fashion.

I too wish to publish a photograph of this brave undercover reporter, but to avoid identifying him, I have featured him in a series of disguises; each more cunning than the last…


More from George Galloway (who initially released the images) here. The Respect website also reports that the restraining order expires in about an hour and a half.
