David Cameron has announced he is deciding what action to take over newspapers publishing leaks. Cameron has warned that newspapers may be prevented from publishing sensitive intelligence stories.

The reporting of the Edward Snowden Leaks have already caused damage to the British government and now the Prime Minister is to place injunctions on the media and public from sharing such leaks.

David Cameron will choose court over the governments D-Notice advisory system.

D-Notice enables newspaper editors to run stories past the government to check whether they affect national security, although they are not bound by the advice received.

This system has been in force throughout the Guardian’s publication of the Snowden leaks but it’s not entirely clear that they’ve stopped any of the reporting.
