Plodding communications

by Matthew Steeples

Matthew Steeples argues that the detainment of David Miranda again illustrates why a clearer communications strategy is required on the part of the police   David Miranda’s detainment may have been legitimate and he may indeed have been carrying information that could be considered dangerous to Britain.

Paul Staines (AKA Guido Fawkes)

by Matthew Steeples

This “relentlessly mocking” Irish right-wing blogger is the editor of the UK’s most read political blog and operates with a guiding force of: “Fuck with me, and I fuck with you”.

Richard Desmond (nicknamed “Mr Badger”)

by Matthew Steeples

This twice married, self-made billionaire publisher and philanthropist is a polarising force. Desmond’s portfolio has at various times included titles as diverse as the Daily Express, OK!, Asian Babes and Penthouse and this is used against him by enemies like Tom Bower who have also claimed that he’s “violent and dishonest”. Though some might loathe … Continue reading “Richard Desmond (nicknamed “Mr Badger”)”

Leave it out Leveson

by Matthew Steeples

The conviction of Stuart Hall and the case of Rolf Harris illustrate the damage that Leveson has done to the free press   The British press, until the onset of the phone hacking scandal, was generally celebrated for being free, inquisitive and in the main decent.

When good men should do nothing

by Matthew Steeples

Matthew Steeples responds to the recommendations of Leveson   “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing” was one of Edmund Burke’s most famous observations.   Today, David Cameron’s former spin doctor Andy Coulson and ex-News International chief executive Rebekah Brooks were in court to face charges of … Continue reading “When good men should do nothing”

Enough is enough

by Matthew Steeples

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 … Continue reading “Enough is enough”

The horse has already bolted

by Matthew Steeples

My thoughts on the arrest of Charlie and Rebekah Brooks   Whilst growing up, at home, when my family spoke of “hacking” we were talking about taking the horses out into the countryside. Now, sadly, this term has become more associated with Rupert Murdoch, News Corp and a bunch of bleating celebrities than with a … Continue reading “The horse has already bolted”
