Cameron’s Leveson deal is ‘threat to press freedom’, says human rights watchdog. And news blogs as well!

So the globalist soap opera rolls on. It appears that the whole Leveson phone hacking scandal was a means to an end.

What happens when you corner a rat? The rat attacks, and that is exactly what these rats are doing. They know that they’ve been rumbled. They are fully aware that people are waking up and exposing them for what they really are, political actors playing out a script written for them by the globalist masters, under the illusion of democracy.

People are starting to realise that all, and by that I mean all political parties are controlled by the elite. They play out the roles of government and opposition to reinforce the illusion of freedom, only to do as they are told when in power. Blair, a JPMorgan Chase man through and through, and still paid millions by them, plus earnings from Goldman Sachs, laid the foundations of the UK collapse under the guise of “New Labour”.

They are aware that some good journalists, yes there are still some, want to expose the truth. The rise of Alternative media sites, telling it how it really is, is a real threat to them, so they create a reason, planned over many years, to install controls on the media.

The hope that newspapers will refuse to sign up to this new charter is a false hope, as the newspapers are broadly owned by the same people who control the rest of the media.

This is a real threat and attack on freedom of speech on blogs like this. Here is a screen grab of the

interpretations of the charter. Section 1,b(ii) clearly states news related websites!!

So the heat is being turned up. What’s that expression about “can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen”; well, I love cooking, sorry.

Here’s the article from the Telegraph.

David Cameron has been accused of creating a “threat to press freedom” by an international body which polices human rights in some of the most autocratic countries.

The Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe, which usually polices elections to ensure against human rights abuses, said that the phone hacking scandal should not be used as an “excuse” to restrict free speech.
The intervention was made after the Prime Minister was accused of putting together a “grubby deal” after he dropped his opposition to use legislation to underpin a new system of press regulation.
The Labour and Liberal Democrat leaders met with a Conservative minister in secret talks which lasted until early Monday morning to hammer out a deal which could see the press regulated by a new Royal Charter.
Those who refuse to sign up, including websites, now face “exemplary damages” if they are taken to court.
Several of the country’s biggest newspaper groups, including Telegraph Media Group, issued a statement expressing their initial concerns over the proposals.

There is growing speculation that some newspapers and magazines may boycott the new system amid claims it violates fundamental human rights. Mr Cameron unveiled the plans in Parliament as several MPs – exposed for their own failings in the media – welcomed the crackdown. In a statement, a spokesman for the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe said: “A government-established regulatory body, regardless of how independent it is intended to be, could pose a threat to media freedom. “I still believe that self-regulation is the best way to deal with ethical lapses and failures to comply with professional standards. “The phone-hacking scandal was a criminal issue and the people involved are being prosecuted. This should not be used as an excuse to rein in all print media.” The Index on Censorship, a campaign group chaired by veteran BBC broadcaster Jonathan Dimbleby, said creation of Britain’s first official newspaper regulator for 300 years marks a “sad day for press freedom”. Mr Dimbleby said he is “dismayed” that politicians will now get power over the regulation of newspapers. The board has the gravest anxiety at the residual political powers the now expected outcome and system will give to politicians,” Mr Dimbleby said. “The two thirds block on any changes to the royal charter could be abused in the future – not least when today’s emerging consensus shows that the parties can come together in both houses to agree on press regulation.” In the Commons, Mr Cameron sought to draw a line under the phone hacking scandal which started with the claim that the mobile phone of murdered schoolgirl Milly Dowler was hacked by reporters and led to scores of journalists being arrested and a full blown judicial inquiry by Lord Justice Leveson. Insisting that the cross-party deal on press regulation would defend the principle of a free press, Mr Cameron told MPs: “My message to the press is clear. We’ve had the debate. Now it is time to get on and make this system work.” He defended the need to enshrine the royal charter in law, which could be amended by peers and MPs at a later date, insisting: “It is legislation to protect the royal charter, it is not legislation to recognise the royal charter. Setting out his reasons for opposing more fundamental legislation, he said it would be “wrong to run even the slightest risk of infringing free speech or a free press”. He added: “As Winston Churchill said, ‘a free press is the unsleeping guardian of every other right that free men prize, it is the most dangerous foe of tyranny’. By rejecting statutory regulation but being in favour of a royal charter this House has defended that principle.” The royal charter will be submitted to the Queen for approval in May, once the necessary legislation has been approved by MPs and peers.
