Suzanne Moore Compares Phone Hackers to Paedophiles

In the red corner: under-fire friend of the Brazilian transsexual Suzanne Moore and free speech advocate and lefty man of letters Nick Cohen. In the yellow corner: failed LibDem politician Evan Harris and Goldsmiths College press-hater Natalie Fenton. Last night Soho Skeptics played host to the B-list Leveson debate.

Moore was the woman people had come to see, and she received a rapturous welcome. The assortment of Leveson lovers in the audience soon changed their minds when she launched a staunch defence of the free press however. Moore strongly hinted that her time at the Guardian could be up following events of the last week, denouncing Comment Is Free as a “failed experiment” and ridiculing bosses for criticising her combative Twitter style. And that wasn’t her only comment that had lefty luvvies spitting out their white wine:

“This reminds me of pornography. Child pornography is already illegal, phone hacking is already illegal. What we are talking about is giving politicians more power over what we can and can’t see. At a time when trust in politicians is at its lowest ever, why on earth would we do that?”

A noble point, albeit colourfully expressed…
