Speccie Say NO
Downing Street Say Guido is a “Relevant Publisher”

The Spectator have made up their mind on state regulation. Here is tomorrow’s cover:

Think that’s pretty clear…

Downing Street has cleared up yesterday’s confusion about whether or not Guido will fall under the Charter:

“No newspaper or blogger would be forced to join the regulator, the Royal Charter system is a system of incentivisation. However, those ‘relevant publishers’ that choose not to join the regulator would be subject to costs and could be subject to exemplary damages if taken to court. ‘Relevant publishers’ are specifically defined and could include blog sites that are written by multiple authors, have editorial control and are published in the course of business.”

It goes without saying that it’s a “no” from Guido too…

Kevin Maguire on the less than electrifying Ed Miliband…

“I bet if you went into a pub tonight and started a conversation about ­politics you’d hear strong opinions. David Cameron would be out of touch and Nick Clegg despised while Nigel Farage would divide people sharply. Miliband? In a lot of boozers he’d be the fourth most interesting man in British politics.”
