Oh dear - Leveson: Government's press regulation plans put on ice

Leveson: Government's press regulation plans put on ice


The Government's proposal for a Royal Charter on the future of press
regulation, drawn up with the help of the campaign group Hacked Off, has been
put on ice after newspaper editors put forward an alternative plan.


The Royal Charter was due to be signed by the Queen when she chaired the next
meeting of the Privy Council on May 15, but it has now been taken off the agenda
for the meeting so the Government can hold more talks with editors.

Still plenty of time for members here to sign the ANTI-LEVESON petition on the Prime Minister's website, which OPPOSES state control of the press:

Link: http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/42582

It has 1,434 signatures so far

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2318604/Stuart-Hall-case-proves-benefits-naming-arrested-suspects-say-campaigners.html#comments
Following his arrest in December, Hall was quick to use the media to protest his innocence – and invoke Leveson.
His solicitor, Louise Straw, said: ‘Stuart Hall is innocent of these charges. He is unable to comment further at this stage. {Oh good. His lawyer LIED as well !}
Publicity: Open justice campaigners said yesterday that the Stuart Hall case highlights why suspects should be named when arrested
Keeping quiet: There are fears that Lord Justice Leveson¿s report on Press standards has encouraged police forces to restrict the public¿s right to know who is being arrested and, in some cases, charged
‘It is a matter of concern that in the week following publication of the Leveson Report there appears to have been systematic, measured leaks to the media which have given a misleading impression of what this case is about.
‘Stuart Hall was not afforded the opportunity to attend voluntarily at the police station. In due course the decision that he should be arrested will be the subject of some scrutiny.’
Bob Satchwell, executive director of the Society of Editors, said the fact that more of Hall’s victims came forward after he was named when arrested was a strong argument for more transparency.
Philip Davies, a Tory MP on the Commons culture committee, left, said that the Hall case highlights why suspects in such cases should be named. Solicitor Louise Straw, right, cited Leveson when criticising the naming of Hall after he was initially arrested
He added: ‘There is a huge danger of secret justice replacing rights of the public, and indeed defendants, back to Magna Carta.
‘It is time someone put a stop to this frightening trend.’
I think this tells us all we need to know.

I'm right on the fence on this issue. On the one hand, we have here an example of why it is beneficial to have named a suspect, i.e., it gives other victims the courage to come forward and have acknowledgement and some sort of closure.

But I do most sincerely feel for the poor people who get falsely accused, who are driven to the brink of suicide and have their lives and reputations ruined for nothing. They suffer just as much as a genuine victim IMO. Being falsely put through a trial, the publicity etc must be like a form of rape in itself.

It is a tough call.

It certainly confirms to me why so many want the papers and the bloggers silenced.

If they don't want to be on the front pages of the newspapers then live a good honest and decent life and don't try and take away our freedoms because they seem to be unable to control themselves.

Conversvely, by naming 'suspects' it also gives witnesses who can give the 'accused' an 'alibi' a chance to come forward and go to police to disprove the 'allegation.' before getting to court.

Well, its apparent the Inquiry was transparent as two thick planks.
We are now aware the Inquiry main and perhaps only objective was to destroy Brooks and Murdoch strange hold over politicians. Hacked was just a guise used by Cameron, and ultimately mainly politicians benefit from Leveson.

I want to know WHO in particular instructed the MET to gag Leveson Inquiry over claims that one of BLAIRS top officers sold secrets to the news of World. If there is no truth in the claims why the radical move to gag Leveson......the gag speaks volume and we know where the truth lies.

According to Monday's London Evening Standard the classified document suggested the officer — who is not named for legal reasons — passed the leak on to the tabloid for money.

htJay, who is poised to become a high court judge, confirmed that the report was not submitted by Scotland Yard until 23 April last year. This was seven weeks after Stevens, Blair, Stephenson and other senior police officers were quizzed by Leveson.tp://www.guardian.co.uk/media/2013/may/20/met-leveson-police-news-of-the-world

The Met covering the Met. The higher up the more corrupt.

Is this revealing?

I caught tail end of video interview by Jon Snow of the author Irvine Welsh(speaking from Miami - does he live there?)

A large cohort of celebs etc have signed a petition urging the press to accept the Royal Charter. I noticed a camera zoomed in on a pile of newspapers and the Express was the only one pulled out so you could read the headline "MADELEINE".That's what made me take notice. There was a lot of blah from Welsh. Jon Snow made a big point about press intrusion on Mick Jagger's grief although MJ himself hasn't complained. I have gone right off Jon Snow lately. This week he was reported as saying he thought of sex every time he met a woman. How yuk is that? And how intrusive and vile an idea that women coming into his orbit at work will have that ringing in their ears. Disgusting.

I didn't much care for the look of Welsh either. He looked a belligerent little oik and I wondered what stoked his fires.

Anyway, here is a bit about it on the BBC News site. Naturally GM was asked to comment.
--------------------------------------------------

Celebrities ask press to accept charter regulation plan

John Cleese, Sir David Attenborough, JK Rowling, and Victoria Wood are among 200 performers, writers and academics calling on newspapers to agree to the Royal Charter on press regulation.

They have added their names to an advert from campaign group Hacked Off.

Its declaration says the charter, published a year ago, safeguards newspapers from political interference.

But the industry is setting up its own regulator. It says it fears the charter may allow outside control of the press.

Proposals to change the existing system of press regulation emerged following the phone-hacking affair and subsequent Leveson Inquiry into the ethics and practices of newspapers.

The Royal Charter was finally agreed by all three main political parties last October. It follows many of the recommendations of the Leveson Inquiry and proposes the Press Complaints Commission be replaced by a regulator with greater powers.

The tycoon Sir Richard Branson; actors Peter Capaldi, Michael Palin and Stephen Fry; comedians Rory Bremner and Miranda Hart; Professor Richard Dawkins; writer Salman Rushdie; film director Danny Boyle; playwrights Sir David Hare and Sir Tom Stoppard, and the former Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams are among the other signatories to the advertisement backing the charter.

'Nothing to lose'
It appears in several newspapers and magazines and says a "free press is a cornerstone of democracy.

"It has nothing to lose, and can only be enhanced, by acknowledging unethical practice in its midst and acting firmly to ensure it is not repeated."

The declaration signed by the celebrities adds that "editors and journalists will rise in public esteem when they accept a form of self-regulation that is independently audited on the lines recommended by Lord Justice Leveson.

"It is our view that this Charter safeguards the press from political interference while also giving vital protection to the vulnerable."

Hacked Off has carried out a high-profile campaign, led by actors Hugh Grant and Steve Coogan, to reform the press in the wake of the Leveson report.

The group, which says it relies on donations from supporters for its funding, has been pressing for the Royal Charter to be adopted.

Meanwhile, a new regulatory body, called the Independent Press Standards Organisation, is being set up by most of the national newspapers.

It will have similar powers of imposing fines on newspapers for breaches of a standards code to those being proposed by the Royal Charter.

'Stand with victims'
But it has been criticised by groups such as the Media Standards Trust for not being sufficiently independent of the big newspaper groups.

However, the BBC's media correspondent David Sillito says the newspapers are unlikely to agree to any oversight by the committee proposed by the Royal Charter that seeks to ensure the standards laid out in the Leveson Report.

Gerry McCann, father of missing Madeleine McCann, has been one of Hacked Off's most prominent supporters.

Mr McCann said it was "not a surprise" that so many public figures had put their names to the campaign.

He went on: "But it is very gratifying that they are prepared to stand publicly with the victims of press abuse and call on the newspapers to comply with the Royal Charter.


"http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-26623103
-------------------------------------------------

Pity he never complied with the investigation in Portugal and went back with his pals to do a reconstruction.  He's a fine one to preach about complying.
