Quote of the week must go to Charlie Falconer:
“People not the press must be the priority. There is a right to know, not a right to tell.”
You only need to think about this for a couple of seconds to realise how dumb it is. After all, freedom of speech IS a right, and how can you know if no-one is allowed to report it?
This idea that the Government seem to have cooked up that you can have freedom of speech but without any media involved is utterly pernicious. Frankly, I can’t believe Falconer gave the game away as blatantly as this.
