Leveson has sense of humour failure

Personally I am looking forward to 'The Thick of it' on Saturday when they will sending up public inquiries, but it seems that not everybody has the same level of anticipation.

The Independent reports that the editor of The Times was required to write to Lord Justice Leveson earlier this summer explaining why the paper had run a short story revealing that the BBC2 show's current series would satirise a public inquiry run on similar lines to the press ethics inquiry.

They say that the story was 208 words long and did not appear on a prominent page. It also referred to the findings of an opinion poll which asked for the reaction of people to positive and negative statements about the inquiry.

Even Leveson cannot control the way that his inquiry is portrayed in the media or on satirical TV shows and nor should he.
