There will never be a truely independant press complaints committee..


With the twists and turns of “call me Dave” the genuine fear and borderline panic from certain quarters of the media, I can’t see any law controlling the press.

They are terrified that they will be unable to rubbish their enemies with impunity and that those same enemies could complain.

Its a bit scary, worrying and annoying that the main reasons to resist press control by law is that they don’t want to be answerable to anyone for what they say?

I suspect there are a few that would like a censored press but I think a free press is a vital and very necessary part of a democracy.

However, a free press shouldn’t be confused with an irresponsible press…

I hope for all or sakes they get it right…
