The totalitarianism is becoming increasingly overt.
Journalists guilty of gross malpractice should be struck off a professional register to prevent them working in news, the shadow culture secretary will suggest at the Labour conference on Tuesday.

Ivan Lewis is proposing a "system of independent regulation including proper like-for-like redress which means mistakes and falsehoods on the front page receive apologies and retraction on the front page".

...Lewis will suggest that newspapers should introduce a system whereby journalists could be struck off a register for malpractice.

No doubt these licensed journalists would have "equality" obligations imposed upon them as public sector agencies do, such as a duty to promote "tolerance" and combat "discrimination". Say a bad word about Muslims or immigration and your licence will be withdrawn.
