Leveson Inquiry: Rip Her To Shreds

“If an MP for example were to campaign on a ticket where he was incredibly homophobic and then it emerged later that that person was in fact gay then I think newspapers would have an absolute right to rip that person to pieces — that wouldn’t be enough, I think they should be barred from office.”

That's nice, dear.
Tax-dodging multi-millionaire Tory MP Zac Goldsmith giving evidence at the Leveson Inquiry yesterday.
Mr Goldsmith later apologised after attracting controversy over this comment;
“If the only way a business can stay afloat is by engaging in immoral or unethical behaviour, then that business should either change its model or go out of business. No one said that Auschwitz should have been kept open because it created jobs.”
That's nice, dear.
