(not satire – it’s the UK today!)

In a breathtaking display of audacity, the proprietors of the Telegraph, the Sun and the Mail have all threatened to ignore any vote in parliament if MPs decide today to set up an independent press regulation system.

The threat by Rupert Murdoch, Lord Rothermere and the Barclay brothers to ignore decisions democratically taken by elected members of our parliament shows the four foreign-resident, tax-exile, billionaire press barons who control the majority of the press in the UK – clearly think UK laws are only for the plebs and they’re exempt from them.

Personally I think if Murdoch, Rothermere and the Barclay brothers really do think they’re above the law – a spell in Wandsworth Prison alongside Chris Huhne might do wonders to dispossess them of that illusion.

Don’t you?
