New Statesman: No Now But Not Never

What a difference a week makes. Last week they were comparing Merkel to Hitler, now the Staggers could not be any more on the fence if they tried:

“The New Statesman, which has an ever-growing website and digital presence, currently does not see its interests served by regulation designed to suit politicians, nor by a revanche regime cooked up for the comfort of newspaper barons. Until a better plan is put forward we reserve our right to continue publishing “news-related material” in print and online without deference to either of those parties.”

So that’s a no, but not on principle of being  regulated. They do want to be regulated, they just want better regulation than is on offer. As ever, on their own…

‘He persuaded me to do this. He said you need to soften your image. So do Mumsnet and do this…. I’m trying to soften my image.’
