Leveson

I like what I heard in Lord Justice Leveson’s impressive statement. Like most people commenting I have yet to read the report (it will take a while), but the proposals he summarised in his statement seem right. Will the vested interests in the press now shut up and get behind the report, or is that too much to expect and will the rotten apples in our otherwise responsible press continue to work to destroy this chance for change and – if they had the wit to see it – destroy themselves? More importantly, will Prime Minister David Cameron stand up for the public interest and throw his weight behind the recommendations? Or, will he shrink and support the proprietors over the public? We’ll know in about a quarter of an hour.
