Free Press?

Lord Leveson has recommended regulation of the press.

The press are up in arms.

According to a bald man on the telly, 'we' fought long and hard for freedom of speech and we can't sacrifice that.

Isn't that like saying that our free will must not be controlled by the government?

Hmm.. That's a nice new flat panel telly in Currys. I don't want to pay for it though. We fought long and hard for free will in this Country! Someone died in a war to make this a free country! Property is theft! etc. etc.

Freedom of speech isn't the problem.

The problem is what certain journalists use that freedom to say.

And yes, they should be regulated.
