Norman Baker Sort Of Vindicated by PCC

The Telegraph has a half a page of the Press Complaints Commission`s adjudication on the alleged mis -use of subterfuge, by which, Norman Baker was revealed to be less enamoured of the coalition than he claimed to be . He likened himself ( hilariously ) to Helen Suzman if you recall I have put a link below.
The Conclusion is that Pubic interest was insufficient ,but criticism of the Telegraph is not unbalanced with possible mitigations .
Ironically I dare say nothing would please our Norm better, right now, than to be caught privately loathing the Tories, but this whole narrative of "Liberals taking the hits for Tory wickedness", is nonsense IMHO.
The Liberal Party is taking the hit for having lied about, having cakes and eating them, for years .If they think they would be smelling or roses having saved Brown they are seriously deluding themselves.

He did not liken himself personally to Helen Suzman only his position within the coalition. Read what he actually said in context rather the slant that has been applied by the press who want to find fault in everything.
