Hacked Off's Hugh Grant puts his money where his mouth is
Monday 18 March 2013
Hugh Grant, a director of the Hacked Off campaign, says the pro-regulation pressure group is nowhere near as slick as it looks. The actor told the BBC's Andrew Marr Show that it actually consisted of "a few dandruffy professors sitting in a cheap office." Grant added that he was so certain that papers would not be hit with £1m fines by the new regulator, he would make a matching £1m donation to Comic Relief if any were levied.
The 'slightly insane' Lib Dem is Evan Harris, formerly Liverpool's under 18 chess champion. Hacked Off's co-founder, Brian Cathcart, is a Professor of Journalism.
