EU wants power to sack journalists

The EU wants to force the creation of a media regulator in the UK with statutory powers to fine journalists and remove their accreditation.

A panel of EU fascists has criticised the British government for not creating a media regulator and recommended that one be forced upon us, answerable to the EU Commission to "ensure [it] complies with European values".

The timing of this latest assault on democracy and freedom by the EU couldn't be better.  The media will be reporting on Cameron's in/in sham referendum speech tomorrow and they're likely to be less than positive about the EU and his unswerving commitment to our membership when they're directly attacking the media.
