Leveson report and the EU
Willis Pickard at Liberal Democrat Voice points out another instance of misrepresentation by the London press: its coverage of European Union matters. The defenders of the status quo maintain that all the sins which gave rise to Leveson were criminal acts, so that there is no need for a change in the law. Here, however, is another case where the criminal law would have been ineffective, as with the defamation of people who cannot afford recourse to law.
