No purpose in gutter journalism

Published 03/01/2011

In principle, I am very much in favour of transparency in business and politics: the disclosures by WikiLeaks are important - particularly when it comes to exposing the double-dealing of our closest ally.

Newspaper entrapment of Vince Cable and other Lib Dem ministers is entirely another matter. One is minded to ask, "What public interest was served?"

Quite what motivated a newspaper to descend into gutter journalism is beyond me, as it is in the interest of all that the policies of the Government are successful.
