Who Has Been Naughty and Nice This Year? MPs on the Each Side of the Leveson Debate

It’s that time of year again: Guido has drawn up his Christmas naughty and nice list. The naughty column of MPs who will be lucky to receive any seasonal goodwill are made up of those who signed George Eustice’s letter calling for statutory regulation of the press, those who spoke in favour of legislation in the debate yesterday and those who have otherwise supported shackling the press via statute.

Over in the nice column are the MPs who signed Conor Burns’ letter in defence of press freedom, those who stood up to Leveson’s key recommendation in the House yesterday and those who have backed the press over the state on other occasions. Most have remained oddly quiet…

We will be updating the list this afternoon so get in touch with any more suggestions…

Quote of the Day

Lucy Allan explains her positive comments about the Brexit Party…

“If EU elections are held, Leave supporting voters will want to vote for Leave supporting candidates… Usual party loyalties will be eclipsed by the Leave v Remain divide. It’s good to see strong candidates in the Leave camp. However, I sincerely hope we leave the EU before these elections are held so that we can move on and not waste time and money on unnecessary EU elections.”
