Keep your hat on: newspapers cover Britain's summer.
Today's news, tomorrow's lesson 28 November - David Cameron receives Leveson report ahead of official publication on ThursdayToday's news, tomorrow's lesson - 28 November The publication of Lord Leveson’s report tomorrow on improving regulation of newspapers and journalism is already big news. Tasked with investigating the inner workings of Britain’s press by David Cameron when the phone-hacking scandal was at its peak in June 2011, Lord Leveson spent the month that followed publicly picking over every last detail of relationships that exist both formally and informally between journalists, politicians and the police.
The prime minister's dilemma over the Leveson report , which he will have the chance to read from midday today, could not be more obvious. The letter from 86 politicians, published in The Guardian and the Daily Telegraph today, brings David Cameron 's problem into sharp focus. Though billed as a cross-party initiative, it is overwhelmingly Tory (signed by 76 Conservative MPs and peers) and argues passionately against any form of state involvement in press regulation. It runs counter to a letter signed a couple of weeks ago by 40 Tories who urged statutory regulation.
A risky business
