Latest Laughable Leveson Submissions

Having recovered from his weekend exploits Brian decided that Wednesday evening would be a good time for a document dump, releasing submissions on the future regulatory regime for the press. Guido was amused by some of the more wacky suggestions, including:

  • Paul Dacre proposing meaningless “ethical” press cards that would seek to create a Soviet-style club of authorised journalists. Guido might issue his own cards…
  • The Mail editor suggests banning hacks from the Press Association newswire if they misbehave. Apparently “it would be very difficult to produce any newspaper without PA“. Speak for yourself…
  • Max Mosley implying that stories about “sexual conduct between consenting adults” should be banned for not being in the public interest. Don’t mention the spanking tarts!
  • Advertisers should boycott non-compliant publishers. Facebook, Google and Guido are not exactly trembling.
  • PCC Chairman Lord Hunt claiming the PCC never had the power to do anything about previous dodgy press practices. That will be it’s epitaph… 

Well they would say that, wouldn’t they…

    *PBT = Poor B… Taxpayer – for listeners at home

    The PCC never had the WILL to do anything about dodgy press practices invariably bending over backwards to exonerate the guilty. When the transgressors are voluntarily paying for the watchdog, what do you expect?

    Gordon Brown says:

    You ain’t seen me. Right?

    Ed Balls says:

    Start thinking people.

    Lawyers (The whole fraternity) have self-regulation; The Bankers have self-regulation and the press want to continue to regulate themselves… Hello!

    And the IPCC are said to regulate errant cops.

    Isn’t it all one big happy family of them and their trades verses – the Taxpaying public. As for MP’s well – they’re just a bunch of circus performers.

    Superman says:

    Nothing will come out of Leveson. End of story.(How much are the lawyers getting out of this?)

    Blowing Whistles says:

    They have adopted the Practices of the Tyrannical Judiciary and their lesser snakes on the ladder in Stalinist Communist Russia. They are making a killing out of it – and guess at who’s expense?

    Blowing Whistles says:

    I have just recieved and skimmed through a copy of the latest

    Corruption in the police service in England & Wales Report 2 of May 2012.
    [60 pages]
    The jargon, waffle, rhetoric and twisting for business purposes of the statistics are to put it mildly so akin to Communist practices – it beggars belief.

    OT: At least the £240K bail forfeited by the leftie media luvvies backing Assange will make up for any tax they’ve been dodging.

    Blowing Whistles says:

    When a Capitalist system becomes so corrupted from the top down its leaders adopt Marxist Communist tactics, techniques and clothes to evade from their having been caught out by the masses.

    When a Marxist Communist system becomes so corrupted from the top down its leaders adopt Capitalist tactics, techniques and clothes to evade from their having been caught out.

    When both become no different from one anohter; is when the checks and balances on those at the top are eroded. ‘Both systems’ employ / use their Judiciary as a so called stop on corruption – and that’s what Judicial Tyrannies are all about and that is when something is going to give.

    The plan with these Tossers is to bombard you with crapola, thus eventually you lose the will to live.

    The same, in general, is on all news ‘channels’ (geddit???) unt tee vee ‘shows’ unt radiodribble et cetera.

    Give the plebs plenty of sport porn iPhone apps and job done!!!

    I admire your fortitude, keep it up! Maybe the trickle down effect may work, but I doubt it. You just need to read a random sampling of daily mail comments in order to want to suicide…

    Marx was a hack writer barely eating until the Banksters gave him a maid and told him what to pen, promised him heaven on earth, which is what he got.

    You do know this, right?

    Everything since has been lies upon lies.

    The big lie, if you will.

    Research the sudden annunciation of rent boy A Hitler, for another example of a useful idiot.

Thanks to me for being the most important man on the planet ( fuck you Bono), thanks to those girls i raped. Thanks to vlad Putin for employing me at his TV station. So long stupid leftie suckers.

    DiLDDO aka Dala'i Llama Ding Dong-Ommmmm says:

    DiLDDO aka Dala'i Llama Ding Dong-Ommmmm says:

    He would fail, it would take YEARS of befuddling, by which time the act would be just a memory of a hacked text on an iPhone belonging to the cosy Oxfordshire cabal.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
