The Liberal Democrats support statutory press regulation since news of such alleged behaviour as graced our rumbustious media in the last few days could probably be covered up. Alas, the cat was let out of the bag too soon!
If this has taken place in America, the whole debate would be framed in the partisan finger pointing of supposed liberal hypocrisy (possibly appropriate since they are the Liberal Democrats).
But here, where all parties are liberal by US standards, the hypocrisy stems from their ability to shoot first with holier-than-thou bullets trading on an erroneous public reputation that they have highre standards of public behaviour than the other main political parties. Tuition fees, Huhne and now this....
sleazier than all the rest!
