Quote of the Day

Mr Jay praises the British press:

“My impression is that the press in the UK could well qualify as the most unruly and irreverent in the world, and I have travelled widely; it is fearless, and it speaks its mind. To be described as ‘unruly and irreverent’ would be regarded by most editors and journalists as a badge of honour, not of aspersion. Many would argue that these qualities make the press in the UK the best in the world…”

    If they would add accuracy, a spirit of inquiry, moral courage and good English to their accomplishments, then we would indeed have a press to be proud of.
