‘We wanted to make the Press accountable without sacrificing freedom of speech,’ David Cameron told a coven of journalists. ‘Beelzebub is the ideal candidate: his integrity is, well, it’s better than most journalists and he definitely knows when they’re lying. It was either him or Paul Dacre – who would you have chosen?’
