    Disgusting that there were only 9 votes of a difference, signals to me that there will be future attempts to muzzle the Press, particularly the smaller and online outlets.
    I emailed my MP just before the vote and expressed my disgust that such an attack on free speech should be taking place at all never mind with such a close result predicted. Now that the result is in I am an even more disgusted ex -Labour ( the enemies of the people) voter.

    I consider there is a major flaw in our parliamentary system when the “Opposition” oppose something “just because they can”, regardless of any resultant harm caused to the interests of the country. Roll on Proportional Representation!

    And I wonder what the split would have been if the House had been given a free vote on this amendment?

    Leveson’s investigative report upon the Press certainly took its time. It was reasonably ‘in depth’ and broadly speaking, a little good came from it. What is still worrying is the possible Press bias shown for our ‘Establishment.’ ………. All that being said, if the Press has its legal freedoms cut back, then it has little place in our society today, and is of not much use to us at all ! ………. In the Moggy/Milli exchange, we saw quiet fact vs. loud passion, and I would not wish to diminish either !
