Leveson – are we heading for statutory independent press regulator?

November 28th, 2012

The report’s out at 1pm tomorrow

Thursday looks set to be a big political day with three Westminster by-elections and the publication of the Leveson report.

Dave got his copy this morning and no doubt they’ll be working hard on his response planned for tomorrow afternoon. One possible issue is that the PM and DPM could make separate statements. At PMQs today we saw different viewpoints from backbench Tory MPs pointing to splits in the blue team.

This morning the Media Standards trust issued the findings of a YouGov poll that it has commissioned.

It’s all a tricky issue for Dave to deal with. Will state regulation happen? I don’t know.
