We need an improved set of media rules

EEUm34-U4AAO1hkA week ago on last Thursday Boris Johnson travelled to West Yorkshire to speak about the extra  funds he proposes to supply to enable Police Services to replace a significant number of police officer roles that were terminated by his Government over the last decade. Whilst the extra funds will only mitigate some of the loss, the extra investment is to be applauded. However while he was there making a speech about the police funding he then turned his presentation into an attack on another political party and one of the police trainees fainted. My point a week ago was that if he was to do this again he needs to resign. Then yesterday he was out at an apprenticeship event and as we can see one of the apprentices is clearly no fan of him and yet as we can see the Times put it on their front page today. This needs to end as a matter of high priority. The risk of these young people being criticised for opposing or indeed supporting him is too high and the papers and broadcasters need to find ways of focusing on our politicians without politicising people who are not part of their support group.
