    Section 40 is likely to come into law and I think it's absolutely brilliant. However, while it is a step in the right direction I believe it doesn't go far enough to deal with the liar press in this country who spread misinformation that leads to terrible political decisions like Brexit, which was based on issues which had been invented by the press.

    In my opinion to truly have a functioning democratic society we need to ban the following papers: The Times (Both regular and Financial), The Telegraph, The Sun, The Express, Private eye, Charlie Hebdo, The daily star, The Sunday sport and last but certainly not least The Daily Mail. The fact is these publications constantly lie and spread hate. The amount they would lose being sued would be peanuts compared to the amount they earn from spreading the lies. We're heading for more press regulation and I for one welcome it. Anyone else feel the same way?

    I am an advocate for accurate reporting but how many times did you see Boris harping on about £350 million for the NHS? You surely can't blame the press for reporting cheap being emitted from our politicians.

    Personally I don't care what the press print but I do wish they weren't allowed to regulate themselves as at present.

    Is Facebook a news outlet?

    I like how The Guardian (a terrorist-supporting newspaper which printed articles by the leaders of Hamas) isn't included.

    I would support press censorship during times of war in order to stop information being leaked to the public that could be damaging to the image and morale of the armed forces. If we had done this during the Iraq War there'd be much less hassle among the public about that nowadays. We did it in WWII.

    Or maybe support criticising of bad journalism more, and encourage transparency and evidence based reporting among journalists?

    I think there needs to be come kind of accountability. Some just spread lies and hate - and some people take it all in with no or little personal evaluation at all.
