    Leveson tells inquiry: “I will not be deterred”

    Lord Justice Leveson complained to Cabinet Secretary Sir Jeremy Heywood about Michael Gove’s comments

    Well it's a thought says:

    What’s up has the tv got new distractions to fill the tv cesspit of time and Leveson is worried he may get the troughs time’s up signal.

    We’re all capitalists on here but surely even we have to admit there’s something wrong with the system when a talentless and unfunny twat like Jimmy Carr can make £3.3 million. Then again, I’ve never understood why anyone finds Billy Connolly funny. Yelling non-stop is not my idea of comedy.

      perhaps the loggorheic torrent hides something?

      not now cato says:

      Whether or not people find Carr funny is nothing to do with the (capitalist) system, it is more a function of education and the moral decline of society.

      At least Carr is a net contributor to the tax system, rather than a claimant.

        when I was young I told people that I wanted to be a comedian – they just laughed at me!

        they’re not laughing now!

    Oh for fucks sake, what a mess. Close it down. Now.

    That’s the problem when an inquiry into media standards gets co-opted by little arsehole blabbermouths like Twatson and turned into a lets-attack-whatever-we-don’t-like-while-being-deafeningly-silent-on-things-we-do fest.

    Tax is theft says:

    He may not have reached a conclusion so far (no, really) but by not having the BBC in the dock and being able to give them the same kind of ‘rigorous’ questioning that seems to be reserved for NI or anybody right of centre, the die is already loaded

    What nonsense, plain for all to see that Leveson isn’t persuing a hidden agenda, it’s just puzzling, mysterious, obscure and enigmatic.

    Declaration of interest: I think Jimmy Carr and Billy Connolly are funny.

    Here’s a translation of this that a moron (but apparently not Brian could understand):
    1. MoS ran a story portraying me in a negative light.
    2. The press should be free.
    3. Blum, bler, blow, blaff.

    This morning, Leveson said he would not be deterred from seeking terms of reference, terms he should have had at the start of the enquiry.

    So what the hell has he been doing all this time, courtesy of the taxpayer?

Sarah Vine writes of Esther McVey…

“McVey told Grazia that she hasn’t married or had children because she ‘never found anyone to wind her biological clock’ … If I remember rightly, half the current Cabinet would have cheerfully ‘wound her clock’ if she’d given them a glimmer of a chance.”



Flight Watch says:

Russia Today is a cauldron of bullsh*t. The only people that take it seriously are deluded conspiracy theorists. Other RT journos have resigned citing the same reasons.

It’s about as believable as Press TV, KCNA of North Korea or the Daily Mirror.
