NORTON: the inside story….

Published by Nick on October 10th, 2012 - in NEWS

THIS POST served as a filler between the original Norton Saga feature and the Stewart Garner interview. New readers with an interest in the subject are best advised to head to those destinations: we’re not deleting this one as comments were received and posted, but it has been long since superceded.



For reasons explained below – see update  – we’ve had to put back The Stewart Garner Interview.  This will be the real deal:  punches will not be pulled by either side. Inevitably, some will see the proposed interview as a cop out on our part, when in fact what we’re doing is fulfilling the original intention of balancing input by giving Norton a platform on which to respond.

UPDATE 21/02/13

Apologies for the ongoing delay. I can only say that there are excellent reasons for holding off on any Norton related material at the moment – new material has recently been made available to BG which we are in the process of evaluating, and secondly Norton have recently been cited in evidence in open court as part of an ongoing criminal trial. These complex proceedings also need to be contextualised, and for that we must await a verdict.

Under those circumstances there is no sensible option but to hold fire. This does not mean that the story has been spiked: it simply means that we’re trying to do the job properly. Thanks for your patience.
