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.”

    I don't want to share the same air and the Edinburgh dogshite says:

    I am increasingly disturbed with the patent self-interest of spoilt celebrities demanding a censored press. We already have legislation to protect our privacy, if they want to harangue anyone they should be looking at the Police who were hand in glove with the papers and failed to investigate or ask the cps to prosecute.
    I also find it very disturbing but not surprising that the leader of the major socialist party wants to have govt controlled press.

    Haven’t heard of her much since the allegations about her role in the London School of Economics taking money from the Gaddafi regime.

    Glad to see her back standing up for freedom and rights.

    This little shammy leather has the hide of a rhino and a very Privy Council ‘shyster’ she is too. Always squealing or pipsqueaking [e.g. QT] should that be; about; ‘uman bloody rights …

    She an ‘expert’ alright – an expert at prevarication, evasion, delay and obfuscation.

    There is no public confidence left in liberty [nice name that ‘implies’ so much] it don’t practice what it says on the tin.

    Take you veil or should that be vile shroud off Shammy leather.

    I myself create it,
    edit it,
    censor it,
    publish it,
    distribute it, and …
    get imprisoned for it.”

    Is this the dawn of the UKSSR?

    Plus she stands up for your rights too! That’s a waste in your case though.

    Superman says:

    Far better to have government contols as governments can lose power than criminal media moguls(Maxwell , Black, Murdoch to name but 3).Honest reporting has no problems. Its the dishonest and criminal that MUST be sorted.

    Superman says:

    I agree re police and for most celebrities I am ambivalent. But Joe Bloggs in High St has no protection(and don’t mention libel laws as they are for wealthy only) A few editors in jail over the last 50 years would have seen a cleaner press without hindering investigative journalism!

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.”
