Quote of the Day

Dr Sara Payne is pretty hacked off:

“We all want the same thing — a free and fair Press — and I think we need to debate the right way to do this. While I have been mistreated by the Press, I certainly don’t believe in statutory controls. The Press needs to get its house in order and not only be subject to new rules and regulations, but also have a moral high ground to aspire to.
It is important that celebrities and MPs, whose own moral shortcomings may have been exposed by the Press, are not allowed to hijack this vital overhaul.”

    How very comforting that a modicum of common sense and even some wisdom can still be found on planet earth.

David Cameron drug policy reformer and leadership contender in 2005…

“Politicians attempt to appeal to the lowest common denominator by posturing with tough policies and calling for crackdown after crackdown. Drugs policy has been failing for decades.”



“Digger” Murdoch says:

Is it just me, or is Nigel Farage just a top hat and a monocle away from being a Batman villain?
