Fraser Nelson: Spectator Won’t Abide By Statutory Regulation

In a leader in this week’s Spectator the editor pledges to go to jail rather than abide by statutory press regulation:

If the press agrees a new form of self-regulation, perhaps contractually binding this time, we will happily take part. But we would not sign up to anything enforced by government. If such a group is constituted we will not attend its meetings, pay its fines nor heed its menaces. We would still obey the (other) laws of the land. But to join any scheme which subordinates press to parliament would be a betrayal of what this paper has stood for since its inception in 1828.

If Cameron caves in to Leveson it looks like Fraser Nelson could be following in the Spectator tradition. Like his columnist Taki before him, he could be on his way to Pentonville…

    Guido, in your WSJ article you stated that a regulated press would benefit you as your blog would not be subject to regulation and would therefore attract more readers, and thereby make you more money.

    I assume that you make your money through advertising. It would surely not be difficult for the government to legislate against businesses trading in the UK advertising on blogs that failed to comply with the requisite regulation. Your source of income would therefore dry up, given that your target audience is in the UK.

    I would think that would be impossible. What law are you thinking of basing it on? The EU allows free trade throughout Europe. Advertising is a business. A ban on UK companies advertising in UK press, but that allows EU countries to advertise would fail immediately.

    If law is changed he might not have the same options as now. The issue I have is; PM, ministers, MPs, etc going cap in hand to newspaper owners and senior staff. This has to change.

    Spotty Lizard says:

    The free trade principles are subject to public policy derogations. The government could probably mount a credible argument that the need to prevent circumvention of the statutory regulation satisfied public policy needs.

    As for your second point, I didn’t say “UK companies” — I very deliberately wrote “companies trading in the UK”. That’s not limited to UK companies.

    The government can ban advertising. Fags and booze and hookers and such.
    The US has form on banning outside influences. Intrade for one, so your idea is not without foundation.

    But the EU makes it an impossibility in the UK. Companies ‘trading in the UK’ being banned is the same as companies ‘not trading in the UK’ being allowed. Its anti competitive and a ban would need to be EU wide, incorporating laws from all the Eurozone, or it would fail.

    In a perfect irony the EU would come to the aid of the right wing press.

    All the press are paid up members of the establishment. If they don’t comply they get cut out of the politicla loop and get no stories. No stories mean no job.

    Does anyone really believe the press didn’t know about the thieving of our politicians? The only reason the Telegraph ran the story was Heather Brooke was on the case and had already highlighted the lack of transparency over expenses and it was quite likely someone would leak the CD with the expenses on making Fleetstreet look sleazy for NOT wanting to run the story.

    For example someone like Guido may well have ended up with the CD, so the idea that Fleetstreet holds the politicians to account is just bollocks.

    Mohandas Gandhi says:

    Getting banged up for taking a principled stand against Government oppression is what happens to the person who challenges them, but here’s also what happens: You can become a hero to your cause, and sway public opinion your way; “First they ignore you, etc.” Standing up to the powers-that-be is a longstanding tradition, as is civil disobedience to an illegitimate use of force against you. Being prosecuted for defence of liberty is a badge of honour. No– getting banged up is not the worst thing that can happen to you for your actions.

    Being murdered is. And Martin Luther King agrees with me on this.

    Bill, your last point doesn’t make sense. Why would a company that does not trade in the UK wish to advertise on a web-site that is almost wholly, if not wholly, directed at the UK market? There is no issue of anti-competitiveness.

    And you have misunderstood the law. Member States have the power to enter into public policy derogations within their own borders, and — by definition — not across the EU. For example, different member states have different policies on banning use of asbestos. Similarly, some member states ban re-processing of single-use medical devices (e.g. France); others, (e.g. the UK) don’t. You have got the law completely wrong.

    Perhaps they felt it was shameful the they were not wearing the official special Small Hat of Yahweh (aviallable at a very good price for YOU, at all branches of Abe Winkelstein’s Hats ‘R Us)

    Or did they not have the strangely red beard on a dark haired man, or the clothes that went out of fashion over a century ago?

    It is very confusing, conversing with the confused and the deluded.

    Don’t make poor Mr Fawkes choose.

    Our department considers such statement of intent to flout an as yet unwritten law at some undetermined time in the future as grounds for taking the children into state custody. We stand by the actions of our social workers in enforcing this aspect of child protection and kindly ask the press to stop investigating our decisions before we consider your suitability to parent.

    To the BBC. I look forward to my day in court. The truth will be out. says:

    If any media outlet or institution that makes the case for state regulation then the BBC upholds that need for state control. Its arrogance and destructive days are hopefully numbered. Fingers crossed.

    Any Dream Will Do says:

    Remember what happened to “The Face” back in 1994 when Jason Donovan sued them over homosexuality claims.

    They went under as a result cause they couldn’t pay their legal bills.

    Sad times. Too many broken hearts in this world, too many dreams to be broken in too.

    I don’t think too many people would be sad to see The Speccie go the same way but one can only dream (will do)
