    Nothing is going to completely unravel. It'll be the same as every single corruption story. As Brem says, a few will be convinced to take one for the team, so the rest of the cunts can continue doing what they're doing. Same old shit.

    we'll see. There is going to be public apoplexy tomorrow and there are plenty who have a vested interest in feeding the fire. Don't get me wrong, Murdoch and his empire will remain untouched, but at the very least he'll have to start backing off his snide anti-BBC agenda.

    it depends a lot on the MPs and what questions they ask, we've got some pretty big issues to cover, i'm thinking a lot of time will be spent "agreeing with the right honourable blahblah blah" before Brooks gets sacrificed at the alter of public outrage and everything returns to normal

    You're kidding? This is going to be here for months. By all accounts this is the tip of the iceberg. The Guardian are sitting on a mountain of material and people are coming out and saying now that this has been going on for ever.

    Coulsen has been hung out to dry by Murdoch, he won't take that well. Brookes will have to go as well and she certainly won't go quietly and she knows where the bodies are buried. The police have been implicated and the reluctance of the CPS to investigate this now looks very dodgy indeed. The 7/7 victim's families, the Soham victims, all were tapped and then there is the political angle. These people are Cameron bum-buddies. Brooks had dinner with the family Cameron at christmas, Coulsen ran his press and was hired after he was implicated.

    This is going to be big and all the cunts are going to get it HARD, despite possibly one of the most reprehensible cover-ups in British history.

    we hope, but with the amount of dirt that'll come out about the political parties and their leaders you can be damn sure MPs don't want all the facts to come to light any more than the rest of the dirty bastards

    The biggest scandal out of all of this imo is how willing the Metropolitan Police were, initially, to sweep this under the carpet to keep News International happy. It's quite clear that the organisation is a cancer on civil society in the UK.

    It's quite funny how The Sun seems to think the biggest story of the day is some kind of "IVF Lotto" though. Er, everyone else is reporting a certain other story guys...

    Well, The Sun is a News International paper...

    Remember people, we are not blame less in all this. People buy the shit rags because they print these stories in the first place.

    Stop buying shit papers that lead with retarded celebrity tripe.

    Come and get it cumslingers!

    They should do a diversionary tactic and release those pictures of Debbie McGee they've been saving for a rainy day.

    Ah, the smuggo defence, if I'm not mistaken.

    Just cos there's a market for something doesn't excuse breaking the law.

    Not sure if this is a random gag but I've heard some hilarious rumours off a bloke in fleet street concerning an infamous set of Debbie Mcgee pics

    bow wow wow...

    I don't buy rag shits.

    I am sure News Corp will simply pick their fall guy and they'll get raped - it'll be either Mr. C or that bird, I very much doubt they will both go down for it.

    I've always disliked Rebecca Wade. She represents the worst kind of person who works in the media - absolutely no responsibility or insight (or possibly an active disregard) for the real impact that their actions can have on people. She has been quite happy to exploit people's anxieties with campaigns such "Sarah's Law" and a sustained campaign to bring back hanging just in the interests of improving circulation numbers. Her attempts at back-peddling when the shit hit the fan in the former and when people started taking the latter seriously just shows how her incompetence compounds things further. Frankly if she was ripped to shreds by a rabid pack of enraged tabloid readers following this recent revelation, I could not think of a more fitting outcome.

    So, let me get this right - the issue of the NotW allegedly making illegal payments to the police is going to be investigated by...the police. And they need copies of the docs from the NotW to find out what payments were made. The fuck?
    You do realise that the Met police for example is made up of over 50,000 individual people. This will not be 'the police' as an organisation that sold the information, but a few corrupt individuals. The anti-corruption departments in the implicated forces will now be working overtime to identify those responsible.

    When the shit hits the fan News International have always come out smelling of roses. Being in bed with the incumbent government probably helps.

    There were rumours, back in t'day, that she used to knock grant mitchell about when they were briefly married.

    Obviously, no one really picked up on it as the news media are shit scared of her.

    Well he was beaten up (he had injuries to prove it), and there was nobody else around but Wade, but he declined to press charges, so the police dropped it. Given the fact his Hard Man image is so integral to how he markets himself, I can see why he would not want to be known as the "bloke off Eastenders who got beaten up by a woman."

    The level of intelligence on display by some in this topic is an example as to why the tabloids make so much money.

    Still I'm sure the met police is happy that every single person it employs worked on a massive conspiracy according to some of you muppets.....

    The BBC is equally as bad and will - I guarantee - be part of this. As will every major organisation involved in news in this country.

    No, it was picked up on at the time actually, was just more of a celebrity due to it involving Ross Kemp.

    You don't think the CPS have a case to answer? And I very much doubt that BBC do anything like this, they have completely different agenda and mandate to the tabloids.
  • Deleted user 6 July 2011 09:54:13
    Yeah I remember it being quite a big deal at the time.

    It's been an open secret in the industry for ages who's been doing this, and more widely know to the public which newspapers have been involved for years now. I first read about this a few years ago in Nick Davies' book which is probably a good 2 years ago now.

    It very much is restricted to certain tabloids, which is why the Guardian is so happy to get on its high horse about it.

    News International is already in self-defence mode.

    The police tip-off emails and the Andy Coulson emails are just News International throwing some shit in another direction to distract people from looking at its own festering dung heap regarding the Dowler/Soham/Tube bomb hacking.
