About that Blogger’s Code of Conduct, Lord Hunt

Lord Hunt, Chairman of the Press Complaints Commission, was a charmer when Guido met him last November. He claimed to be a fan and said his kids printed out the profane comments from a previous Guido blog piece about him and stuck them on his fridge. The meeting followed some comments he made suggesting that blogs were a regulatory problem. This blogger thinks statutory regulations are a problem.

It was reported that Lord Hunt told the Leveson Inquiry last week that we had a “very good” discussion and Guido told him that what he writes is “always accurate”. Guido recalls, more precisely, that he said this blog always strives for accuracy.

It was also reported that Guido “promised to go away and consider” being kitemarked under the new beefed up PCC successor. It is true to say that when pressed Guido may have told Lord Hunt that he would consider it, not saying “no” there and then. It is however a very definite no to kitemarking, or any other form of self-censorship.

This blog aims to amuse, inform and entertain our readers, reporting the truth as we see it. That sentence is this blog’s entire code of conduct.

Mary Creagh’s coded attack on Ed Miliband…

‘I want the country to be united behind a single vision, we aren’t going to do it by sort of having a Rubik’s Cube approach to politics’.
