David Leigh: Comment is Free but you can’t comment on what I say

One must possess a particular kind of arrogance to use the Comment is Free section of a newspaper, of which he is the investigations executive editor, to deliver one of his trademark hatchet jobs of an op-ed… but to then shield himself from any reply or challenge from commenters by hiding behind the excuse:

• For legal reasons this article will not be open to comments

David Leigh is not only a pathological liar, he is a coward too.  For how much longer will he cower behind Alan Rusbridger’s apron strings and perform escape and evasion tactics of which an SAS trooper would be proud?

There is no depth the Guardian’s ideologues will not plumb in pursuit of their politicised agenda.  It’s nice to see more and more people seeing that bile filled rag for what it really is.

    I had twigged this was the Grauniad before I’d finished reading the title.

    Leigh and his paper are just two more of the worthless pieces of “terminal morraine” left behind by the New Labour glacier that scarred, froze and depressed the UK for 13 years. However, it is their links and influence on govt and the civil service that are the real issue here.

    And their links and infuence in the broadcast arm of the Grauniad, namely the BBC.
