A CLEAR Submission To The Editors’ Code Of Practice Committee

Bonkers The wonderful news today is that Cameron and his cronies, Paul Dacre, Rupert Murdoch and the Barclay brothers have been outwitted, outnegotiated and trumped. We shall have a new system of press regulation, independent of the press and of politicians and, crucially, it will be underpinned by law. The Butcher Of Truth The liars, cheats and abusers that form the Fleet Street mafia have been dragged kicking and screaming out of their ivory...
