Friends of Fox Tout Brussels Negotiation Job

As Guido revealed in yesterday’s Sun on Sunday column, friends of Liam Fox are full of helpful suggestions for how the former Defence Secretary might return to the front-line. One idea being touted is that he could be sent to Europe as Dave’s chief negotiator for the promised EU relationship renegotiation. In his big speech on Europe last summer Fox insisted that “life outside the EU holds no terror”, so the move would certainly cheer up disillusioned Tory Eurosceptics, wary of the threat from UKIP. Clegg on the other hand…

      So La Fox is going to follow the likes of Brittan to Brussels as a means of relocating the scandals offshore?

      The new regulation will cover “websites containing news-related material” apparently. That means not only ones such as my own blog (and sites such as this), but the one run by your local parish council too. And the one written by just about anyone with a blog.

        The proposals will cover all publishing of ‘news’ material, the definition of which is deliberately loose.

        The proposals also state that what is in the public interest shall be predetermined by the government.

        The regulation will be avoidable by relocating overseas, but that strategy will fail when taxation of net traffic on international telecommunication cables is brought in. The UN / WCIT are dealing with that at the moment.

        Still not sure why they didn’t introduce the one change which would deal with the whole problem – the introduction of personal vicarious liability (in both civil and criminal law) for editors and proprietors (defined as anyone able to influence the conduct of the publication. This being necessary to prevent minion fronts). Then a paper can print what it likes and do what it likes, as long as the fat cats are prepared to suffer the same penalties as their staff when they transgress the law.
