John Wilkes - Friend of liberty and now on video

Got sent this by citizen TV channel  WORLDbytes which thinks in the Leveson era we should be reminded of the 18th century press freedom campaigner and radical journalist John Wilkes -  "the friend of liberty."

It includes the friendly door-stepping of Mick Hume, author of "There Is No Such Thing As a Free Press - and we need one more than ever"  and finds, sadly, that few members of  the public have ever heard of John Wilkes.
