First Senior Tory Reaction to the Leveson Report


  1. 1
    Kebab Time says:

    Leveson can fuck right off!

  2. 2
    Broadsword calling Danny Boy says:

    Giving MPs access to expenses is like giving a satyr the keys to the girls’ dormitory. Which bastards does he want us to trust?

  3. 3
    Lord Lupin says:

    Couldn’t have put it better.

  4. 4
    Gordon Brown says:

    There WAS a deal between Cameron and Murdoch! There was, there was, there was! I hate this bigoted report! He didn’t declare me as the greatest prime minister of all time! I demand Leveson go back and rewrite his report to reflect that I was the greatest prime minister ever!!!

    And I never lied! I always told the truth! Just like here, I told the truth!

    English pleb says:

    no one gives a fuck about levy or his son.

    Hacked off are red ed's poodles says:

    how the fook is alan partride a victim?
    how the fook is mungo grant a victim?
    how the fook is max mosely a victim?

    They were all naughty boys who were caught red handeed.

    This Leveson business, I’ve never seen so many cocksuckers so excited since the day Sir Jimmy announced he had the keys to Haute de la Garenne to the royal yacht squadron.

    those who have power need to be scrutinised
    try scrutinising the royals.

    diversion anyone?

    Come out fighting Dave says:

    So when will Labour apologise for accusing Jeremy Hunt of breaking the ministerial code and calling on him to resign?

    Dave must shove this right down their throats because you can be sure the BBC will not voluntarily persue this,

    Jimmy Savile says:

    “Giving the government the responsibility for press freedom is like giving me the keys to the girls dormitory.”

    Sandra in Accounts says:

    Welcome to East Germany. Or Putins Russia. Or Assads Syria.

    Imagine any future British politician lecturing “3rd world dictators” on democracy and the free press?

    If the editors & journalists do not revolt against this (except you Guardian cockwombles) they deserve to go out of business.

    This turns all newpapers into the paper version of Nick Robinson – client media of the state.

    Recommendation 38 of the report is ominous.

    Anonymous says:

    As much as Brian attempted to tell us that his proposal is not the State regulating the press, it is as close to it as would be possible at this time. He wants us to have the press regulated by a statutory quango, with a State appointed board and no operational representation from the press at all.

    Whilst Brian tells us that his new system is “voluntary”, he also wants non conformists to be viewed by the State as negligent in their duty and liable for financial penalties. There is no difference between this and full – fledged State control, bar the optics of the new regulator.

    Brian’s idea that this system will help to enhance press freedom is ludicrous. State appointees will regulate what is in “the public interest”, and as we all know, the vast majority of State appointees (regardless of political color) believe that the State is in “the public interest”. Whilst the new regulator will commence with little fanfare and will have very little impact over the next few years, it will, over time, become less and less “independent” (as anti – State voices (if any are appointed) are marginalized and removed). We have seen how quangos and bodies of this sort are easily manipulated into following a specific agenda; which is in the main increasing State control.

    Apart from the obvious fact that over time the new regulator will follow a Statist interpretation of “the public interest” due to the appointees, there will be, in a few years, some scandal involving the press that will allow a future government to amend the legislation to include licensing or more overt methods of State control. Brian is a fool if he believes otherwise. He is typical of the self – obsessed and egotistical individuals who believe that they can divine a perfect system of control and regulation. His comments that “this issue has been raised seven times in seventy years” and that his report will finally put it to bed are an illustration of this. It is inevitable we will have future press scandals and there will be a call for more and more regulation. When the optics of such a move are improved (fueled by any future scandal), we will see harsher and harsher controls.

    You cannot trust anyone who believes that a common law freedom (such as the right to free speech or free publishing) should be enshrined in law. The “obligations” that the State will demand for “guaranteeing” these rights will be such that our common law freedoms are restricted and controlled by the State Leviathan.

    Net migration – the balance between the number of people who come to live in the UK for the long-term and the number who are leaving – fell from 242,000 to 183,000 in the year to March.

    He can try to control the press but he cant control 60 million of us with internet access.

    Moving forward it’s a progressive solution to issues.

    Getting away with breaking the ministerial code is not the same thing at all.

    I doubt that Dave wants too much light on this one.

    It will give everyone a chance to get a good bite at Hunt

    Tay King-dePisse says:

    Can’t everybody see what this is? It’s Lord Justice Leveson, used spitefully if he is ingenuous and really believes that any part of what he wrote is a “solution” to a “problem,” and being disingenuous and acting cynically himself if he doesn’t, saying in effect, “Now we’re trying to be nice to you here– don’t muck it up for yourselves. Aren’t we being just so wonderful and understanding? But don’t play us for mugs, or…well, you’ll find out. You don’t want to find out. Trust us on this.”

    “Velvet glove on a mailed fist,” I believe it used to be called.

    Sadly, no, – they’re still trying to catch up with those fuc.kers, that your Liebore masters lost control and sight of.

    Never mind Moussa – at least you and your socialist comrades have your own dedicated Wiki page:

    Don’t forget Moussa – when you finished smearing your own excrement on the walls of the padded cell you call “home”, if you wash your hands nicely you can watch cbeebies , as long as you promise not to try and bite the nurses again.

    Absolutely on point. There will be a massive battle over what constitutes “public interest” with the aim of controlling what is “acceptable” (that is, “acceptable” to the wrongly named ” liberal ” metropolitan self servers) being the strategic objective.

    So is the BSkyB bid to be rejuventaed then? After all Leveson talked about the importance of “plurality of the media”. That would stuff the BBC’s monopoly right up its tubes.

    At least he knows how to catch his Christmas Turkey, rather than shoplift it, like me.

    How does Swan compare to Turkey anyway?

    Such is the life of a Working Links victim in glorious British gulag.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
