      Law wasn’t implemented this was the biggest problem. Stopping news papers supporting political parties will be the best solution.

      Police is investigating them and taking them to court using the existing laws. For reason this wasn’t done before even though these laws were there when the offences took place.

      Only if the press are stupid enough to comply with any restrictions. If they are censured for running a story on the size of Hugh Grant’s bollocks tough but if they are censured for revealing corruption in Government the people of this country would not stand for it (I hope!).

    • 40 says:

      The problem with the press, as with almost everything else regarding the state, is that if laws are changed because enforcement of existing laws is so abysmal, it can only ever lead to bad new laws.

      Under the freedom of information, how much has Leveson pocketed for this?

        Common Purposegate says:

        The whole inquiry was a total farce and any decision should be completely ignored.

          How long did it take Jay to admit that he worked with Ed Miliband’s wife?

          This is the same lawyer who questioned the great gurning one at this farce, which failed to look at the culture, practices and behaviour of The BBC, amongst others.

          It is like Cameron, a waste of time and money.

      There is some thing wrong if PMs has to go cap in hand in-front of Rupert, his family and senior employees. It is sad Cameron was forced to be friends with Brooks and send all this text and emails to her.

        Stopping foreigners owning a newspaper will be a start. Also we need more news originations and rules everyone need to follow.

      • 44 says:

        The BBC is still doing its propaganda war well. Let us not forget that all this phone hacking occurred while the Labour party were in power and in bed with the Murdochs.

          Now then, now then. A lot of covering up to do. Saw nothing, heard nothing, did nothing. Paid out a shed load of money though. A year’s salary? No problem. Lack of ability? No problem. Lefty bias, talentless luvvies and political stranglehold while pushing the Common Purpose agenda? NY Building 7? What?

          A Dalek would make a better DG. Sack the BBC Board, then replace with meerkats.

      Hutton still has plenty of whitewash left over after his report. He might even have a blunt pen knife handy so you can dissect the Leveson report.

      Hear hear. I cannot, for the life of me, understand how Lord Leveson can issue his report, when he did not call me. The police have already told me that my phone was tapped for years. What on earth is going on? Boaz.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
