    I've just read the decision (only skimmed through the discussion) - well done! :balloons::balloons: The idea that a 'motivated intruder' could publicly identify children who participated in the trial from the data wasn't accepted by the judge. I think that's helpful for other FOI requests for data that might be made so that's great. Thanks for your persistence @JohnTheJack .

    Brilliant @JohnTheJack :) :). Not least for it helping to set a more sane precedent for future FOIs. Superb.

    Is this level of appeal the final on facts, and they can only appeal on points of law from here?

    How long before Clare Gerada is tweeting out some spin on this claiming British justice has lost its way.

    I have no idea how that's supposed to work. Then what? Plenty of participants to some of those trials have spoken out. That's the end of it. They speak out, we appreciate the contribution to the conversation and add it to the pile of evidence. That's what happens when participants in those trials are identified. They're anecdotes, not much more can be done, the trial data is much more useful.

    It's a really bad idea to make strawman arguments like that. It works within the circlejerk, but it makes them look very unprofessional to independent observers. They may as well have been arguing that alien invasion was a likely consequence of releasing the data for all that that argument was grounded in reality.

    At least they can’t claim E Crawley has retired & the data isn’t available
