Indy Editor Backs Plan To Licence Free Speech
Chris Blackhurst, the editor of the Independent, has come out in support of the Labour party's controversial proposal to get journalists "struck off" if they are found to have committed gross malpractice.
...why can't we bar journalists from writing articles," Blackhurst said, adding that "newspapers had to take charge of their own industry". But he conceded that his thinking on the issue was at an early stage. When pressed he said he had "not thought about" what body would licence reporters.
My tip - Try engaging the brain before speaking as the excitement of felching the latest Labour lunacy obviously has impaired your ability to think.
