This press self-regulation vs government press regulation argument that's been re-sparked by the upcoming release of Lord Levenson's musings really has me confused. Do I want the press policed by the shits who caused this whole mess in the first place, or do I want it policed by the shits that were buying champagne for the shits who caused this whole mess in the first place?
It's a tough one, and no mistake. Still, at least it's handed Nick Clegg another opportunity to collapse like a blancmange gazebo. Like we were running out of them. Maybe not, though; maybe Nick really will leap to his feet and say some mean things about David Cameron. Not so much biting the hand that feeds him as biting the hand that stole his food causing him to make an online video apologising for ever promising to eat.
