Dear editors of national newspapers

And their acolytes:

A wise friend of mine has pointed out:

The reason why you shouldn't reveal Venables name and offence is because it will prejudice a jury.

Despite your childish attempts to divide the world into good and evil, we still have a presumption of innonence in this country.

Whatever his new offence might be, you will never find twelve impartial men and women if you continue your efforts to uncover him.

You might whip up an angry mob attacking Venables, or his family, or friends, or someone with a vaguely similar name.

So shut the fuck up for a few minutes, yeah?
