The German-themed spanking party enthusiast and paymaster of the Hacked Off campaign, Max Mosley, supported by Murdoch-hating Chris Bryant and the media lawyer Charlotte Harris, will be opposing the contention that the Leveson proposals represent a fundamental threat to the freedom of the press. They will be debating against the mild, retiring Daily Mail columnist Richard Littlejohn, Media Select Committee chairman John Whittingdale and Guido. Andrew Neil will be refereeing the debate to ensure that no blood is spilt.
To say that there is a level of mutual contempt between Mosley/Bryant and Littlejohn/Guido is an understatement. They think we’re muckraking, knuckle dragging, right-wing tabloid rabble rousers and we think they’re just so embarrassed by their sexually incontinent, promiscuous indiscretions being revealed that they are campaigning to prevent future exposure of such behaviour. Guido would like to see as many of his readers at the event to ensure Mosley gets another public spanking. Given Max enjoys humiliation, he might even enjoy the night.
The debate is on Wednesday, January 30 at IET London, Savoy Place, WC2R 0BL. Tickets are available online from the Speccie.
