A great line has just been uttered by Jonathan Reynolds MP: "No one wants State control of the media, but what we have long had in this country has been closer to media control of the State."
Not before time, parliamentary sovereignty is being reasserted. More, please. Next up, the City.

The Spectator ought to be delighted. Why isn't it?
