Don Foster: Labour’s view of a free press worrying

September 27, 2011 5:15 PM
Originally published by UK Liberal Democrats

"It is clear that self-regulation of the press has failed spectacularly and we need to put this right, but Labour's plan for an official register is deeply flawed.

"It is muddled, completely unworkable and has worrying implications for Labour's view of a free press. From your cousin's occasional blog to some of the most respected journalists, all would be at risk of censure.

"Liberal Democrats have set out a clear, sensible plan for the future of media regulation and will be working to use this to put the media back on a sure footing."
