Implement the recommendations of the Leveson Inquiry, regarding press regulation, in full

We call upon the government to implement, in full, the recommendations of Leveson LJ following his inquiry into the culture, practices and ethics of the press.

Over the last 70 years the printed press has repeatedly and consistently demonstrated that it is incapable of adequately regulating itself. A free press is a just and essential requirement of a democratic society, but the power that the press wields cannot be allowed to be abused to serve the powerful and privileged.

The broadcast media has long been governed by the statute-backed Ofcom, without its independence and effectiveness being compromised. We regret the suggestion that such a regulator would weaken the printed press.

    Why did the PM instigate the Leveson Inquiry when you has just ignored the findings does he not realise he is supposed to be working for us, not his own beliefs , if he wanted to do that stand for Parliament on the thoughts of David Cameron. He appears to be working on labour getting in next time.
