Quote of the Day

Shami Chakrabarti puts the case for liberty against Leveson…

“The Prime Minister is right to be concerned about any Government-appointed body ‘supervising’ the independent regulator. That would bring about the danger of political control by the back door. It is unnecessary and must be resisted. Furthermore, the report contains a last-ditch alternative of compulsory statutory regulation, should the press be unwilling to implement his proposed scheme. Again, the Prime Minister is right to reject this unacceptable plan B, which Liberty would be unable to support.”

Daily_Star_Weekend_2_12_2012In this week’s column read all about what sent Chris Bryant from being smug with reporters to ranting about them, Harriet Harman’s latest u-turn and how Tory whips are bribing rebel MPs on expenses. Also find out which Tory MP says the PM is disappointing and has fragile prospects of forming a majority (it’s not Nadine!) and see how Gordon Brown marked the first anniversary of the last time he spoke in parliament.

All this and more in today’s Daily Star Sunday, just 90p…

New Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond has big ambitions in his first meeting with Benjamin Netanyahu today:

“I came to bring this conflict to an end.”



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.
