LEVESON INQUIRY REPORT

  • Lord Justice Leveson calls for legislation to underpin a "genuinely independent and effective system of self-regulation" for the press. Other key points in his report on press standards and ethics:
    • The press had ignored its own code of conduct in a way that had "wreaked havoc with the lives of innocent people" on far too many occasions over the last decade.
    Politicians of all parties had developed "too close a relationship with the press in a way which has not been in the public interest".
    • Lord Justice Leveson said he has not seen evidence of widespread corruption involving police and the press.
    David Cameron said he had "serious concerns and misgivings" over Leveson's proposals for a statutory underpinning to a new regulation system.
    Nick Clegg clashes with the PM's views, saying changing the law "is the only way" to ensure the new regulator is fully independent

I'm a fan, don't stop me now

I'm thinking about getting back on the chain gang

On yer bike, it's the car for me
