Actor Hugh Grant has accused Theresa May of ‘extraordinary treachery’ over her failure to introduce tougher press regulations, after the News of the World phone hacking scandal exposed serious corruption in the media.
‘I feel unbelievable anger on behalf of these people I’ve worked with over the last six years and who relived the suffering they went through’.
‘They were given personal promises by the last Tory prime minister – both in Parliament and to their faces, that Leveson would be seen through, that they would be protected whatever the outcome of it, that they are the ones that are important’.
‘Now this prime minister – for short term political gain … to get herself good headlines, to get herself elected – throws it all away’.
‘It’s an act of extraordinary treachery’.
