Latest Laughable Leveson Submissions

Having recovered from his weekend exploits Brian decided that Wednesday evening would be a good time for a document dump, releasing submissions on the future regulatory regime for the press. Guido was amused by some of the more wacky suggestions, including:

  • Paul Dacre proposing meaningless “ethical” press cards that would seek to create a Soviet-style club of authorised journalists. Guido might issue his own cards…
  • The Mail editor suggests banning hacks from the Press Association newswire if they misbehave. Apparently “it would be very difficult to produce any newspaper without PA“. Speak for yourself…
  • Max Mosley implying that stories about “sexual conduct between consenting adults” should be banned for not being in the public interest. Don’t mention the spanking tarts!
  • Advertisers should boycott non-compliant publishers. Facebook, Google and Guido are not exactly trembling.
  • PCC Chairman Lord Hunt claiming the PCC never had the power to do anything about previous dodgy press practices. That will be it’s epitaph… 

Well they would say that, wouldn’t they…
