Leveson: wrap it up
Today I watched John Prescott appear giving “testimony” to the Leveson “Inquiry into Media Ethics”.
Last week it was Cherie Blair. Cherie Blair? Ethics?
Time to wrap up this media-lawyer circus.
Am I the only one who considers the “star” witnesses appearing on BBC News-24 etc at the Leveson enquiry tend to be rather faded stars who once quite famous, but are no longer so? Are they seeking, as faded stars often do, to add lustre to their less then lustrous persona. Hello, and fellatio to you, Hugh Grant!.
They also seem to be people caught doing naughty things. Why is their testimony so insipid? Is Leveson, basically, a government-approved tufty hunter? I rather fear he is.
