The Leveson Report Published over on surprise surprise the Huffington Post. Adam Lovejoy writes from in reaction from London: The thing about the report by Lord Leveson on the regulation of the press in Britain is that it’s what he omitted that is way more important than what he actually said in it.
People have now had time to read about the published report by Lord Leveson
In case you have been living in a box, not reading a paper or watching the telly Leveson inquiry calls for press law after hacking scandal (Yahoo News). His lordship has managed to avoid mentioning all the really important bits, succumbing to pressure from the liberal left . And Adam goes on to say ‘It is like asking the X Factor audience to express their views on music and culture generally’.
Outside of the UK there have been reactions to the report not all positive Is Britain seriously proposing government control of newspapers? No, but it looks bad according to the Global Mail News and in the US the Guardian reports that US papers unimpressed with Leveson. Best way to check this is by reading CNN, go here to find out what CNN are saying Tabloid hacking report: Who won? Who lost?
This has come to a situation when people’s lives are destroyed by the politically correct who have turned most newspapers into propaganda tools. left-wing liberal bias goes through the whole of the British press, undermining news reporting turning the right wing publications into a joke. Adam Lovejoy has a way with words and India is starting to notice things to as you will see here Britain needs independent media regulator: Report via Hindu Times.
Victims of phone hacking address the Leveson report
look what happened to the once glorious Spectator magazine the Daily Telegraph and Daily Mail. They become an irrelevance that have nothing to do with conservatism. Reinforced by posts from Scotland who clearly underlined that Leveson inquiry: Time to legislate to curb press ‘outrages’, says Lord Leveson in this article from the Scotsman you can find out what they understand about the report published yesterday.
The financial sector accounts for large advertising revenues of the press. Lord Leveson has missed one important factor: the ownership of the organs of print. At the moment most newspaper proprietors in Britain are basically undesirables who should not have been allowed to own just one paper, let alone several. And they should pass a test to see whether they are suitable to be in the business you see It’s What Lord Leveson Omitted In His Report That’s More Important Than What He Actually Said In It.
N.B. Always check your sources before you form an opinion.
Mehmet Ali writes from Cairo: The 200,000 protesters in Tahrir Square have sent a clear message to President Mohamed Morsi: ‘We don’t recognise you as our President’. Who Is Coming Out To Protest Against Morsi In Tahrir Square? says ifaynsh.
How will the Mr Morsi, new to national politics, respond? He has two options: continue on his path to turn Egypt into an Islamic republic or back off for the moment?
Is Egypt about to become the new Iran? Is a question posed on a blog post made over on the Telegraph. Morsi takes the view that eventually the only law which is valid is the Sharia or religious law. The secularists have a totally different vision for post-Mubarak Egypt. Egyptian protests over Mohamed Morsi decree expected to draw thousands is another sprinkle made over on the Guardian this week.
So what tactics will Morsi deploy? Two killed in protests against Morsi decree is an interesting article shared on The Hindu Times. Full frontal confrontation with the secularists is not on the cards at present.

The secularists do not want any money to pass to Cairo at present. President Morsi Can Mobilise His Supporters To Swamp The Secular Opposition. But That Would Not Be A Wise Move apparently Morsi’s Moment has already happened says journalists over on Time.

Henry Forth writes from London: British government statistics will show that more people leave the UK for jobs abroad than arrive here for work. These figures have been estimates at net migration to UK falls by 25% by the Daily Express.
These are figures that will upset the Keep Out lobby who think once again that foreigners are steaming into the British Isles, particularly the South East, to steal our jobs and live off generous welfare benefits until they hit the career opportunity. Over on this WordPress blog the blogger asks this question is Immigration: A Solution Or A Problem? (misebogland.wordpress.com)
The statistics will suggest that more than 60 per cent of Britons think immigrants are job-stealers. Evidence concludes they are wrong.
In some UK areas, for example, the popular seaside resort of Hastings, there is a double-digit unemployment rate.The UK still has a brain and skills drain. According to the Daily Standard Immigration falls as students stay away and more Britons leave UK .
Those who do get in learn that Britain is almost third world in its delight in making things harder to function. That system is called bureaucracy.
People want to enter the UK to study and work and leave. The Economist newspaper recently wrote that the country’s global popularity gives it a huge advantage which the government is squandering. Britain is trying to run with its shoelaces tied together, who will be an asset to UK plc. And they will have to do this fast because U.K. immigrant quotas will expire in 2013 (upi.com) thats only a few months away.
A post made earlier today over on Stirring Trouble Internationally – A humorous take on news and current affairs (www.stirringtroubleinternationally.com) Casting A Fresh Look At Immigration: Could It Actually Be A Solution And Not A Problem? This is a worldwide problem as you will see when you read Immigration hits reality in Congress on Politico a website outside of the UK.

The question that raises its ugly head is this: how come rock music has always been Continue reading
Dan Majestic writes from Washington: President Barack Obama’s second term in office is bound to be an enjoyable experience for him. Why? This post is for entertainment purposes so remember the mantra ‘four more years’ imagine how good it would be if you like four years of golf. four more years of Media and News. So imagine the scene President Obama has four more years of golf in the White House. Barack Obama just like Bill Clinton, Ronald Reagan, and many others in Washington who are President of the United State on the golf course putting early morning. The Democratic Party (United States) Obama and Bill Clinton pitching for the same party.
Well, first of all, he doesn’t need to run for re-election and that sure takes the heat off him big time. Continue reading
