Interesting that Cameron does not want legislation that infringes on free speech.
Come on you Tigers.

Nice to see the three party leaders disagreeing, if only in a vague sense.
But Eden is burning, either brace yourself for elimination
Or else your hearts must have the courage, of the changing of the guard

I hope they tear Murdoch a new one. I'm glad to see it. I hope it goes past News Limited and cleans up the whole profession. In my opinion, journo's are no better than used car salesman.


Today, one of Murdoch's own Aussie newspaper's (the HeraldSun) has been found guilty by the press council of Australia. The story is about a federal member of parliament who has been accused of using union funds (when he was President of the Health services union over a decade ago.) to procure the services of a prostitute. Due to the current hung parliament in Australia. Murdoch's rags have been relentless in trying to get this MP sacked to force a by-election, which the current government would probably loose and be forced to a general election. Any restriction on this horrible little man's power can only be a good thing. Link below to the full story.

Until a draft set of regulations is published, there's really no point crying or celebrating about it, since we have no idea what will actually be put into those regulations.
