Polling shows the public agree with Miliband, not Cameron, on Leveson

Ed Miliband’s name is muck with most journalists at the moment, and David Cameron is the new ‘saviour of the free press’. Except there’s one problem for the media, those great reflectors of public opinion.

The public agree with Ed Miliband.

Here are the results of a question from today’s YouGov/Sunday Times poll:

No wonder the same poll has Labour 13 points ahead…

    It’s very heartening that the public aren’t the gullible fools that much of the press assumes them to be.

    As my elected MP Grant Shapps is supposed to fight my corner – instead he threatened to sue me

    Last year Rt Hon Grant Shapps MP, the Chairman of the Conservative Party, threatened to sue me, a constituent of his, for libelling him on Facebook about his alter-ego as an internet marketing millionaire called Michael Green. He initially demanded damages and, eventually, to post a retraction which read: “I recently made a post suggesting that Grant Shapps MP had lied over the use of a pen name.

So we will bring an end to the failed austerity agenda of George Osborne. Unlike other parties, we won’t rely […]

    On the day that Plaid Cymru launch their manifesto, their former leader Daffyd Elis-Thomas has said that he has “no issue” with Wales voting for Labour.
