Telegraph editor: No 10 editors meeting like The Godfather

The Daily Telegraph editor Tony Gallagher has tweeted about the meeting with David Cameron over the Leveson recommendations:

19 editors & industry reps, 9 mandarins, 3 ministers and 1 PM. We got coffee and still tap water. No beer & sandwiches

It felt like the summoning of the Five Families in The Godfather - and @arusbridger was 8mins late for kick off. #Leveson

"Beer and sandwiches" is a reference to the refreshments served to union leaders at Number 10 in the 70s.
