The first rule of gagging orders

The BBC reported early this morning on Radio 4 news, I think it was at 6:30am, that Lord Oakeshott used parliamentary privilege to expose where documents detailing the Barclays tax 'avoidance' scheme can be found online (ie wikileaks). This has now dropped from their reports and is to be found no where on their web site (as of 7:30am). It is, however, this on the Guardian's site.

Are we to presume that the frantic efforts that Barclays has made to avoid government funding was to prevent anyone looking at the books?

  1. How come its 'avoidance' when they do it yet 'evastion' when we do it?
