Friday Links

Happy Friday! Today is also Friday 13th for the superstitious among you, and my parents wedding anniversary, you know if my dad was alive and my parents (ok my mum) hadn’t called it quits after 20 long suffering years…

Here are this week’s links…

The NHS is in crisis and while I don’t want to add to the ‘all politicians are liars’ mindset, I believe the doctors on the ground rather than Jeremy Hunt.

Here’s what section 40 would do to the British press – and it’s not good I’m not sure what I think about Section 40. Here is the other side of the argument, Section 40 will curb media abuses and protect the press from litigious oligarchs. Generally, I think that Impress and Ipso aren’t strong enough against the likes of Murdoch and the Daily Mail and I recognise that Section 40 is designed to help protect people who are libeled by the tabloids and can’t afford libel action but at the same time I don’t believe the arbitration rules are good enough to protect papers like the Guardian from the likes of Murdoch, so it’s a conundrum and I’m not sure this is the answer. I guess the answer would be to have a press system full of honourable people but I think we have to accept that age is long dead (if it ever existed!!)
