Robert Jay leaves us with a frustrating verdict on the Leveson inquiry

The silky QC we must now call Mr Justice (Robert) Jay played Little-Sir-Leveson-Echo when he testified in select committee last week: he said almost nothing. But there was at least one eyebrow to raise as Judge Jay opined that some inquiry witnesses he interrogated muted their testimony for fear of being “monstered” by the press. “It’s difficult to know, because you’re proving a negative; but I suspect there were people out there who could have given effective, relevant evidence, but just didn’t want to.”

Jay could, of course, have been asked to supply names and incidents along this monstering path; what he would normally call “evidence”. But hey! who wants to prove anything positive when negative serves so conveniently?
