NotesNews: " The revenge agenda: Will Miliband win? Will Cameron? As the parties play politics, who will protect press freedom? ..... . When considering today's vote on press regulation, and the unedifying squabbling and backroom dealing between the parties that was taking place even last night, it is worth remembering the political context that has given rise to such polarised views on the press. For the left, this is revenge time. When phone-hacking came to light, many thought they finally had Rupert Murdoch by the short and curlies. It was "time to nail the bastard", as one MP put it to me. ...With circulations falling, Ed Miliband has sensed a different wind and has taken them on. But can a press be regulated to be even-handed? Should it be? ... The post-Leveson agenda is therefore purely political. David Cameron is doing a fine job as a ventriloquist's dummy. He assumes that, win, lose or draw, he will be rewarded by the barons who will prop up his waning support at the 2015 general election. .... " John Kampfner, The Guardian
