Cometh the hour, perhaps?
When Harriet Harman, a politician that pundits underestimate at their peril, addressed the Hacked Off lobby event at the House of Commons in late February, not all were certain that Labour would, if returned to power, follow through on the commitment to implement the recommendations made by Lord Justice Leveson, and formalised in the Royal Charter on press self-regulation. Today they can be certain.
It goes on “We remain strongly committed to the implementation of the recommendations of the Leveson Inquiry. We expect the industry to establish a mechanism for independent self-regulation, which delivers proper redress for individuals, as set out in the Royal Charter, and agreed by all parties in Parliament”. And then comes the clincher.
