Summary

Summary

This article has moved from the issues of "political interference", to "Parliamentary accountability", to consideration of the conflicting interests of politicians as opposed to people, in broadcasting. These issues are all related, i.e. political interference cannot be ended without full and constitutionally protected independence of broadcasting from political control.

Parliamentary accountability means political control. National politicians fear the prospect of independent and competitive broadcasting being allowed to continue developing in this country, because they are the most likely victims. But is is in our interests as 'the people' to allow Labour's broadcasting structure to continue as is.
