  • "Past commissions and enquiries have failed to curb the abuse of 'Free Press' by professional journalists, most of whom are so bad that most people do not trust their profession anymore. There is even less chance of them starting to behave properly than even snakes stop biting.

    If so called independent body Leveson appear to have argued for is going to be simply another tarted up version of current PCC, meaning press's own supposedly tough new body, tiger without teeth, then it will be like employing Roni Biggs or likes of Krays as security guards to protect vaults full of gold.

    To expect victims of excesses of press abusing the freedom, which most of us rightly support, still will be expected to fund super expensive court cases from own resources, which only very rich few will be able to afford.

    Lord Leveson has done his work, now the ball is in the court of parliament, which unfortunately is dominated by mostly puppets on the strings controlled by the press."
