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…

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

            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.

        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!”

        Ffs!!

    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.)
