UK National Newspaper Combined Print/Web Readership

The numbers, drawn from the results of the National Readership survey and reported in Press Gazette, show that nearly 14 million people per week are now reading the Mail titles either in print or online. The real number will be even higher as the figure does not include traffic from mobile devices.

The Sun remains the most read paper in print by a distance.

Farage: I’d Do a Deal With Dave

The Sun cabbie is back to grill each party leader ahead of the Euros. Today he has Nigel Farage in the back of his cab, and got him to commit to doing a deal with David Cameron if the numbers mean they could deliver a referendum:

Watch the Sun cabbie’s interview with Nigel Farage in full HERE.

“After the next election, if we find ourselves in the same position as Clegg did in 2010, I’ve got one priority. One pressing priority. That is, no mucking about, the people of this country have to have in short order a full, free and fair referendum so that we can decide whether we govern our own country or leave it to the people of Brussels to make all our rules. It’s not coalition that interests me, but doing deals on certain things to achieve outcomes, particularly that, does.

He must have seen the polls…

Hacked Off Seek EU Diktat to Force Through New Press Laws
Watson Backs Brussels Directive on Media Ownership

After Sajid Javid signalled that he wanted to put the issue of press regulation “to bed”, Hacked Off last night called for an EU directive to force through new laws and overrule the Culture Secretary. Evan Harris and Natalie Fenton, two of the group’s directors, endorsed a new campaign aiming to secure a petition of one million signatures and seek a diktat from Brussels to set limits on media ownership at a European level.

The campaign, which has the somewhat sinister name ‘Reclaim the Media’, is backed by the Green MP Caroline Lucas, the National Union of Journalists, the Trades Union Council and Labour’s Tom Watson, who was due to chair last night’s meeting but failed to attend after he was “unavoidably detained in his constituency”Evan Harris’ face told you everything you need to know about the prospects for Hacked Off’s latest doomed venture…

MediaGuido was particularly interested by a series of graphs provided at the meeting. Reclaim the Media’s campaign for plurality focuses on the Murdoch and Rothermere titles, despite their own evidence showing that it is actually the BBC that enjoys unrivalled dominance in the news industry. Confused Labour MP John McDonnell suggested the motives were personal: “there are thousands of asylum seekers locked up because the government is pandering to the racism of the Daily Mail”, adding that MPs were “petrified by the bucket of sh*t that The Sun pours on you”. Yet according to their own evidence it isn’t the Mail or the Sun that threaten press plurality, it is the BBC…

Can anyone help me? I went on holiday a week ago and returned to find someone has pulled out the stake and Gordon Brown is back and acting as Prime Minister. What did I miss? Has there been a snap election?
