Political

Not a good day for people I usually agree with

Tim Farron was wrong to put his name to such a poorly worded and badly argued letter. (There is a good free speech case for limiting parts of the ASA’s remit, as is done with political speech. This letter was not it.)

Hugh Grant, usually in recent years very sound on media matters, was wrong in his talk of extra regulation of Twitter. (There is a good liberal case for saying libel law needs to be more accessible, but a Twitter regulator is not the answer.)
