A couple of years back I ended up having an exchange with the head of the PCC in the pages of the Spectator. ]
After one particular ruling in my favour he appeared to think that I should thank him for not just allowing me to possess opinions but actually – kindness of kindnesses – for allowing me to express them too.
The PCC is a rotten system. But if you liked it you will love Leveson. We will be able to look forward to years of people with the intelligence of Lynne Featherstone having the power to decide what we can read, write and say.
