I could, and probably will, write a lengthy and considered piece about the absurdity of Press Complaints Commission director Tim Toulmin’s suggestion that blogs should be covered by a voluntary code of practice - not such a thing would apply to MoT as but for out own berserker libel laws, which are so shitty even Americans come to sue, and being ‘published’ on a US-based server, its already subject a code of practice I thoroughly approve of, the US First Amendment.
I could, or I could just suggest a voluntary code of practice of my own, and invite Mt Toulmin to kiss my arse in Harrod’s windows and fuck off.
The latter option is far less considered, but oh so very much more satisfying.
Feel free to file this under ‘overpaid bureaucratic twat with too much time on his hands’.
