Brtiain threatens major censorship of the press

Note well a piece by Suzanne Fields in the Washington Times Thursday Oct. 10, “Shackles for a feisty free press”, link here
Fields reports that Britain’s Prime Minister David Cameron has announced that the government will introduce new “press regulation”, for the first time in 300 years.  Fields points out that the UK does not have a First Amendment and has much stricter libel law than does the US.  

The article goes on to discuss a controversial essay in the Daily Mail about Labor Leader Ralph Miliband. by Ed Miliband, which seems to be intertwined with the censorship controversy, here

What about blogging in Britain now?
