Ground Hog Day for the PressBy Jonathan Coad
Anyone familiar with the wonderful film Ground Hog Day will be reminded of the central premise: a recurring day with no change of circumstances. It is difficult not to be reminded of this film when watching the press and politicians assuring us all that there will now be a tough regulatory system which will them all in check.

In the current economic climate there has been a growing trend among politicians and the press to condemn tax planning as a “form of cheating” which “smacks of cynicism” and “greed”. The targets for attack have ranged from “non-doms” who, if certain conditions are satisfied are able to keep non-UK income and gains outside UK tax, to Jimmy Carr who confessed to a “terrible error of judgement” in using a Jersey based planning scheme which apparently enabled him to pay a 1% effective tax rate on his income

Leveson - will it actually work?By Jonathan Coad
In light of the cross-party deal reached in the early hours of yesterday on a royal charter on press regulation, Jonathan Coad has been interviewed by Channel 4 News and comments on the deal itself and its viability.
Question marks have arisen about what happens to those who do not join the new system, or who indeed is involved under its remit. However, Jonathan remains confident that the 'acid test' will be whether those sitting on the regulatory body will be completely independent. If they are, Jonathan feels that the system will be a success and the British press will improve as a whole.
