There is a reason why Labour and their fellow Guardianistas have jumped on the phone-hacking bandwagon with such zealousness. Red Ed and his Labour Party must think all their Christmases (sorry Wintervilles) have come at once over the last week as they now have a chance to crush the Conservative-supporting popular press. Ed Milliband smirks as he realises his beloved BBC and The Guardian may now have more influence in British politics.
During all the hysteria from the Left, let’s not forget the overwhelming dominant force in the British media is the BBC! I wonder why Labour and the Guardianistas have shouted down the slightest hint of dissent against the BBC during this scandal?
When the inquiries coming down the track get underway, Cameron needs to ensure plurality of the press is maintained once the furore dies down so that the voices of the majority of voters are heard in our print media. As much as it might pain the Guardianistas, they don’t speak for mainstream Britain.
