    Cheers! Didn't spot that.

    EDIT: Can anyone remember which celebrity it was who caught them out on this with his own investigation? Or was that something else entirely?

    I bloody love Andrew Neil. Can't beat some This Week. It's like politics on drugs.

    He needs to be knighted, and the PCC need locking up in the Tower of London followed by a long drop from a short rope!

    Sir Hugh the Just!

    Don't know if this has been posted yet. Putting pressure on the advertisers. Ford have pulled all advertising.

    The PCC is a joke. Completely toothless and run by the papers so they can give the appearance of doing something when one of them fucks up. They need to be shut down and replaced with a real regulator.

    So what? The point is they won't be giving money to the newspaper.

    Just finished reading the Hugh Grant sting, some very interesting insights.

    Hugh Grant gave it both barrels on Channel 4 news just now, very impressive. They also aired new allegations from one of their own journalists who says that the NotW had a murder detective under surveillance. He was investigating the death of a private investigator. The police launched their own counter-surveillance operation. When the police asked them why they had him under surveillance, they said they were investigating whether he was having an affair with a woman who presented Crimewatch at the time. Except... they were married.

    So, what was the NotW doing? Well, the journalist on C4 said that people involved in the case were other private investigators who had close links to... the News of the World.

    Yeah, one of the people accused of the murder, Jonathan Rees, worked for the NotW.

    Decent, if arguably biased, segment on the World Tonight on Radio 4 a few mintes ago. I guess it started about 20 mins in. Both guests called for Brooks' head. Nothing new I guess, but a good summary.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    The Independent challenges Brooks' account of events.

    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

    It seems Coulson is the one being hung out to dry. It's being reported that Coulson condoned the payments to corrupt police for information, and the FT says he fears he'll soon be arrested.

    Telegraph is reporting that the phones of relatives of 7/7 victims were also hacked.

    The whole thing, from the phone hacking to the corrupt police officer payments to the cosy relationship between the Met and News International, is pure sleaze.

    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?

    Yes, but it's tricky to solve this. The main alternative would be a state-run regulator, which will have its own problems, especially with the Tories in control.

    Did everyone see Jon Snow grilling Simon Greenberg about how it can be possible that Rebecka Wade can possibly lead an investigation into the wrongdoings of Rebecka Wade when Rebecka Wade was editor of NOTW.

    The police is the bigger problem. What can you do when the police work against the interests of the public? Look at that Andy Hayman, who led the 'first investigation'. Current employment: News International.

    Then again, you can take that sort of problem further and apply it to all areas of government and civil service. How many MoD bods go off to work for BAE or Thurles? How many local government planning types join building companies shortly after approving large works? How many MPs leave Parliament only to get nice work with the organisations they did so much to help? How many do the same in Parliament and don't really give much of a toss what people think, unless they're caught on film of course.

    It's corruption to some degree, and it seems to stain many with any degree of power or influence. Maybe we should just shrug our shoulders, for all the good that will ever come out of this.

    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.

    I'd love to believe that, but they won't. Maybe we'll get a big name falling on a sword, but that's it.

    Best chance of a big stink is more journos coming forward and volunteering evidence. I imagine there must be a few employed by NI who think this Milly Dowler business is just too low for them to continue. Having said that, I bet there are a LOT more journos and editors working right now working to ensure that dodgy materials are deleted or destroyed, before the scope of this business is widened and other events are examined.

    Sad thing is that the reputation of the British press worldwide is being destroyed. Got a tasty story of FIFA corruption? No one wants to know - because you're a British journalist and everyone knows they're scum. Discovered misappropriate of funds with the Eurozone? You must have made it all up.

    Ah Simon Greenberg, didn't he invent a story about Liverpool fans making death threats to Steven Gerrard when there was talk of him going? Who'd have thought such a nice guy would end up at news international...
