    I think the police payments stuff has been known for years, but it's just coming back into the limelight.

    Someone linked a story a few pages back about this William Rees character. Definitely worth a read, the measures he went to are astounding.

    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.

    It has. My wife used to work for ITN and she said that hacks used to regularly hang around outside their building with receivers, intercepting radio mic transmissions, especially if they had an important guest on.

    Which, as an aside, is one of the reasons Gray and Keyes were so stupid. Its TV 101 that radio mics are an open channel to the whole world.

    Someone linked a story a few pages back about this William Rees character. Definitely worth a read, the measures he went to are astounding.

    Someone linked to this interview transcript from 2003 on twitter. Interesting reading, especially this bit:

    467. And on the element of whether you ever pay the police for information?
    (Ms Wade) We have paid the police for information in the past.

    468. And will you do it in the future?
    (Ms Wade) It depends—
    (Mr Coulson) We operate within the code and within the law and if there is a clear public interest then we will. The same holds for private detectives, subterfuge, a video bag—whatever you want to talk about.

    469. It is illegal for police officers to receive payments.
    (Mr Coulson) No. I just said, within the law.

    Chairman: Chris, you have your answer. Thank you very much. We are grateful for your evidence and the courtesy with which you have given your responses.

    It's no more or less disgusting than that they went around hacking loads of peoples' phones for years.

    It's a bit more disgusting than the hacking of phones of celebrities that we know about. They deleted voicemail messages to make room for more, which not only gave the girl's family false hope, it also impeded the police investigation. I find it hard to believe that this wouldn't have occurred to the person carrying out the hacking.

    I'd have to disagree, personally. Apparently it gave the parents of the murdered girl hope that she was still alive, due to their being activity noted on the account. It could also have potentially hindered the police investigation and resulted in wrong leads being pursued. Ultimately, it may have meant that misdirected resources left a killer out on the streets for a few more years, who could have murdered/raped others.

    I'd personally say that's worse than who Sienna Miller was boffing from one week to the other.

    Why don't they just shut The News Of The World down? Frankly, I think this country needs one less shit paper, especially one that seems to break the law on a daily basis.

    Shouldn't the police be raiding the offices of the News of the World in order to seize any evidence before it could be destroyed? There must be enough reasonable suspicion to get a warrant or whatnot.

    I believe in eye-for-an-eye justice. Those responsible should have their voicemail broken in to and their messages deleted.

    That'll teach them!

    We'd have to murder their children first, or they won't get the full 'experience'.

    It's typical that Lulzsec quit the week before this happens. They'd probably have the NOTW's entire computer records out by now..

    I think that this is an example of Twitter being used for good:
    http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2011/jul/06/news-of-the-world-twitter-campaign

    It's been pretty incredible watching the campaign grow.

    Labour's David Hanson says he has been told that Lord Macdonald, the former director of public prosecutions, has been appointed to advise News International about its dealings with the police.

    Grieve (attorney general) says he thinks Macdonald is helping News International with its disclosure process.

    Hanson says he is concerned because, when he was police minister, Macdonald briefed him about the News International investigation. He suggests there could be a conflict of interest.


    Bloody hell.

    I wonder if this will sink the BSKYB takeover. As if he didn't have enough media control, this might shake up, I'll do you a favour deals which I suspect is how they got the go ahead in the first place.
