Leveson report: JK Rowling left 'duped and angry' at PM's response

Source: The Guardian

JK Rowling has said that she felt "duped and angry" at the prime minister's rejection of a central recommendation of the Leveson inquiry, the statutory underpinning of a new independent press regulator.

In a statement, the Harry Potter author said she had "thought long and hard" about the possible consequences to her family of giving evidence to the Leveson inquiry and "finally decided to do so because I have made every possible attempt to protect my children's privacy under the present system, and failed".

But she argued that without statutory underpinning, any new self-regulation would not work.

"If the prime minister did not wish to change the regulatory system even to the moderate, balanced and proportionate extent proposed by Lord Leveson, I am at a loss to understand why so much public money has been spent and why so many people have been asked to relive extremely painful episodes on the stand in front of millions.
