Who Has Been Naughty and Nice This Year?
MPs on the Each Side of the Leveson Debate

It’s that time of year again: Guido has drawn up his Christmas naughty and nice list. The naughty column of MPs who will be lucky to receive any seasonal goodwill are made up of those who signed George Eustice’s letter calling for statutory regulation of the press, those who spoke in favour of legislation in the debate yesterday and those who have otherwise supported shackling the press via statute.

Over in the nice column are the MPs who signed Conor Burns’ letter in defence of press freedom, those who stood up to Leveson’s key recommendation in the House yesterday and those who have backed the press over the state on other occasions. Most have remained oddly quiet…

We will be updating the list this afternoon so get in touch with any more suggestions…

    Gordon the Medicated says:

    Aye. You don’t know the half of it. I have to live with that tedious Trollope. All day long going on about “I like butter..but also margarine!” And ” let’s make paper chains out of old copies of newspapers and magazines.”
    It’s like having an ugly and more, boring Kirsty Allsop in the house.

    Why did I let Campbell talk me into signing that 10 year contract to have her? And why didn’t Sue put a 5 year break clause in it?

    Oh we’ll…back to reading her gormless tweets .. “Some flowers look like little faces!!! But snowdrops look like little sad pixie hats!”

    Uncle Joe says:

    Good list, I’ll add them to mine.

    If the Press is going to be whiter than white then what is the problem with outside third parties acting as judges when complaints are made .

    Cant see what all the fuss is about .

    Sir Dando Tweakeshafte says:

    Surely the utterly pompous and prolix Jacob Wee-Smog should have been on the “By No Means Disagreeable” list?

  28. 28
    Tay King-dePisse says:

    The enemy of my enemy would be my friend, as long as he doesn’t make ME have to pay for all his conflicts of interest, is what the Landlord seems to be implying.

    Poole MP Robert Syms living up to his nickname “Mr Invisible”. Probably waiting for instructions – but not from his constituents.

    ‘Naughty’ seems too nice a description for Twatson IMHO perhaps an extra catagory is required…..naughty/nice/slimy puss oozing scumbag

  36. 36
    Gonk III says:

    Anyone care to wager there are a far greater number of teetotallers in the naughty column than nice column.
    This proves that authoritarians are dull as shit and not worth knowing.

  37. 37
    Hugh Janus says:

    +100. If Yeo is ‘nice’, I would expect the remainder under that heading to request a move. Typo, perhaps?

    Would be nice to add a colour code for party affiliation, like on the expenses fiddling list.

    My guess is the self-serving authoritarian ‘bad’ list is nearly all Labour, like it was then.

    Were they British, by any chance?

  65. 65

    its not the naughty list guido, you should have a special award for which MP should be awarded as the biggest trother of the year. You could award then the order order of the pig !!!

  66. 66
    Jimmy says:

    Yes indeed. By anyone’s definition.

  67. 67
    Huge Grunt says:

    Blunkett needs removing from the ‘nice’ column. Yesterday in the House he said he now regarded Leveson as fine and dandy – not state regulation at all, stupid to say it was etc. (His original position was probably a sham if truth be known. It’s an old New Labour trick to have a stooge in the anti camp who is then miraculously won over by the honesty and reason of the Labour argument.)

    Trougher Yeo in the nice list? Oh come on! There’s more to being an MP than opposing Leveson, you know.

    And didn’t that nice Mr Dorrell have a questionable expenses issue just recently?

    If this list is just about Leveson, then rename it to say so.

    Greedo Muhammad Saeed al-Sahhaf Fawkes says:

    So basically Guido he slags particular MP’s off all year (rightly in all cases) but then puts them on his ‘good’ list because they agree with him on an issue that could have a restrictive and negative impact on someone that pays him (i.e the Daily Star)?

    Exactly the kind of shameful, hypocritical and borderline corrupt behaviour Guido would have been the first to criticise if it had been anyone else.

    Fact Hunt says:

    Should be a 3rd category ‘Slimy, hypocritical, no good son of a bitch’.

    Twatson, they’re playing your tune.

  97. 97

    I note that most of those in the “Naughty” list have been outed by the press doing something they shouldn’t – adulterers, expenses fiddlers, liars, cheats, bigots or all round duplicitous shits. No wonder they want to muzzle the press. Zac Goldsmith is just following in his crooked dad’s footsteps. Dear old Sir Jimmy spent half a lifetime trying to prevent the press from revealing his dubious business practices. Zac and his airheaded sister had their hatred of the free press instilled into them on daddy’s knee.

    Yeo has also fought the bad fight in favour of subsidies for pseudo-green carbon emission reducing schemes, which don’t work, and against shale gas fracking, which does.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
