(not satire – it’s the UK gutter press!)
Can you believe this for breathtaking hypocrisy?
The Mail, the Telegraph and the Sun have all been banging on and bloody on about how awful the European Convention on Human Rights is right?
For example, the Mail said it was a”great day for British justice” when home secretary Theresa May vowed to take the UK out of the European Court of Human Rights, calling it a ‘discredited’ and ‘ludicrous’ convention which allowed “foreign courts to meddle in British justice”.
So on what legal grounds are the same newspaper groups basing their refusal to comply with the new press regulations agreed in parliament today?
That’s right – they’re saying they’re going to boycott the regulations because they’re contrary to article 10 of …… wait for it …… the European Convention of Human Rights!
Maybe Murdoch, Rothermere and co are so arrogant they believe human rights only apply to billionaire press barons like themselves?
