We are developing the social individualist meta-context for the future. From the very serious to the extremely frivolous... lets see what is on the mind of the Samizdata people.

Samizdata, derived from Samizdat /n. - a system of clandestine publication of banned literature in the USSR [Russ.,= self-publishing house]

Let’s hope Guido is right on this

I do certainly hope that Guido Fawkes is correct that Lord Leveson’s atrocious proposal for statutory regulation of the press gets no-where, particularly now that it seems some of the supporters of Leveson now realise what dangerous folly it is. Of course, I am not getting my hopes up too much, but it would be a relatively rare good piece of news from UK politics to see this idea shot down, hopefully for a long time.

Here are related thoughts of mine about the Leveson process.

    I never cease to wonder how all the same people who loudly proclaim their loathing and fear of the present Conservative government – and who almost as loudly proclaim their loathing and fear of most Labour governments as sellouts corrupted by power – push for more regulation. Who do they think will control the regulations?

    Quite correct Natalie.
