Has The Leveson Inquiry not gone on long enough?
The Leveson Inquiry into the culture, practices and ethics of the press commenced on the 28th July 2011 and has gone on and on. Lord Justice Leveson seems like a perfectly decent chap, but that every week more and more tittle-tattle is aired by a whole array of characters has just become boring and pointless.
During this time all manner of mouthpieces, including from a noisy divorcee named Heather Mills and a “red-socked fop” of a former ambassador, Sir Christopher Meyer, have had the opportunity to air their views about the manner in which our media is governed and what is wrong with it. In my view, most of it is just hot air.
This week sees our Prime Minister appear at the inquiry and frankly he should be the last. It is high time that Leveson was concluded and it is high time that the vilification of the key scapegoat, Rebekah Brooks, stops.
