Quashing Freedom of Speech- British Edition

I noted here that the WSJ was advocating banning negative coverage of the economy.

Now,as Jill noticed, the British government is looking into going after reporters for reporting on the credit crunch. I guess the Brits figure that if the common folk are kept uninformed as to the doings of the financial system, we won't notice that they have driven the economy off a cliff due to their greed and corruption. Until it is too late to do anything about it, that is.
