Hilariously desperate front page from The Sun today.

Still, meant they didn't have space for the story about how a newspaper called the Sun is having to pay significant damages for accessing personal information from an MP's stolen mobile phone.

Perhaps they are now getting the regulation they deserve (and have brought upon themselves). :dry:

The Sun of today would've exposed anything and everything during WWII.

I'm more concerned about top right, for flip sake. :rolleyes:

Since Roy's 100mph flatulence inducing lift to Leigh no doubt.

(Although the smells seemed only ever to emanate from the driver's seat.)

Was the Daily Express about the weather, pensions, health issues or EU? :D

Who cares, is Rupert still in there?

Yeh, true. Still, for those lurking who don't know what you mean could you elaborate a little?! This is AOB after all, I don't want anyone to get the wrong idea.

No problem.

For those not in the know, Leigh has the only free gay cinema experience in the North.

(Hope that's explained it ok, hindle mate...)

Somehow, though, I doubt it. It's not over yet, I reckon.

Quite. The Independent has said they'd sign up to the current suggested arrangement, but the major players (and most constant offenders) are saying no.

It is a delicate problem, because when it comes to who controls what goes in a newspaper, politicians are an only slightly better choice than megalomaniac tax-exiles and their sleazy lackeys.

Journalists and editors seem to think they are held in higher regard than politicians and bankers. But they are not. And rather like politicians and bankers they seem to want to be able to set their own laws and then decide whether to follow them.

I don't know but I'd assume so. That said I can't see LE hacking Tomkins phone to see who he's getting offers from

Serious question, does the new regualtor cover League Express and other specialist / trade papers?

From the BBC Website: "On Monday, Culture Secretary Maria Miller said that to be affected by the change, a "publisher would have to meet the three tests of whether the publication is publishing news-related material in the course of a business, whether their material is written by a range of authors - this would exclude a one-man band or a single blogger - and whether that material is subject to editorial control"."

So from that it looks as though we are.

The details have yet to be revealed, but there are many things to worry about in relation to what has apparently been agreed. The future of League Publications is a very minor issue compared to some of the wider ramifications of what is happening.

Given that we are the publisher of this website, and of this forum, the danger is that the forum might also be caught in this particular net. I wouldn't have thought it was the target of the legislation, when it comes, but on the basis of what Maria Miller said I wouldn't rule it out.

I wonder if the papers will go to the European Court of Human Rights to get this legislation (or whatever it is) blocked? I'd love to see the Sun and the Mail do that. :rolleyes:

We don't have full press freedom anyway - you can print what you like but can then fall foul of libel laws. As far as I can see this is extending that principle to cover people who can't afford Messrs. Sue, Grabbit and Runne.
