David Aaronovitch writes…

“There was no moment in which I felt that Morgan saw himself as obliged to be frank with Leveson and indeed he barely treated the process with civility. All that incriminating stuff he had put in his diaries? Hearsay. Wrongdoing when he was an editor? All his staff knew the law, he was sure. And if they didn’t, well he wouldn’t have been aware of what was going on anyway. Going through bins is illegal as well as unethical? Well strike him dead. He treated the whole thing as though he was a sixth-former doing detention on the last day of his A levels. Soon I’ll be out of here and there’ll be nothing that the ponderous judge and his counsels can do about it.”

“I think that Jeremy Corbyn himself should search his conscience and ask himself whether he’s the best person to lead the Labour Party into the general election with the best chance of success for the party.”
