Leveson’s report has recommended self-regulation of the press, with its effectiveness and independence from industry and politicians guaranteed by law. This has been supported by Nick Clegg and Ed Milliband. David Cameron does not agree. The Prime Minister has announced that he would not support Leveson’s recommendation to give self-regulation any legally-backed guarantee, meaning it will lack the independence and teeth that are the hallmark of the current system that has failed repeatedly.
