Tory MPs Back Self-Preservation Society

Guido was pleasantly surprised by how few Tory MPs have signed a letter written by Cameron’s former Press Secretary George Eustice, demanding that the press be muzzled. The second anyone speaks out against statutory regulation, cries go up about prejudicing the inquiry, and accusations are thrown around about trying to taint Leveson. Moves to try to influence Brian the other way, like this morning’s Guardian splash are welcomed with open arms though.

Guido was not surprised to see former cabinet minister Caroline Spelman leading the way. This year the multimillionaire spent over £60,000 – the equivalent of one years salary as an MP – in a failed attempt to keep her drug cheat England rugby playing son out of the papers. The public interest in exposing cheating in sport was apparently second fiddle to the fact that Spelman was a politician. Any other member of the squad without a loaded, famous parent would have had to face the music.

The rest of the list is littered with your normal array of big state lovers, arms dealer chums, drunks, expenses cheats and shaggers. These are the people any new legislation will protect.

GuidoFawkes Quote of the Day

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’.
