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 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.

    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.

Damian McBride writes in the epilogue to his memoir…

“At the time of writing, nine months from the election, I’ve concluded that Labour currently has no positive messages to communicate to anyone about why they should vote for the party, no policies which will persuade them, and is being run in a totally dysfunctional way.”
