The court said quite rightly that Miranda is not and has never been a journalist, therefore he was not and is not entitled to any of the protections that might otherwise apply to journalists. The case was entirely misconceived and a waste of the court’s time. Secondly, MI5 was very clear that the material found in Miranda’s possession contained the names of people working for the Security Services, none of which had been redacted. I note that Miranda and Greenwald have yet even to offer to apologise for endangering those individuals. Perhaps Mr Stephens might be better occupied asking Miranda and Greenwald, and the Guardian who appear to have set Miranda up as some kind of Judas goat, what on earth they thought they were doing.
