        “Finally justice will be done.”

        News of the World reporters tried to hack the voicemails of dead 9/11 victims, a former New York policeman claimed last night.
        The ex-officer from New York alleged he was contacted by News of the World journalists who said they would pay him to retrieve the private phone records of the dead.
        The former cop, who now works as a private investigator, said that reporters wanted British victim’s mobile numbers and details of calls they had made and received in the days before the tragedy.

    It is very nice of NI to volunteer to provide evidence to Plod. However, since Plod doesn’t seem to be interrogating the old computer and other files themselves, then one might suppose that if evidence of naughtiness by very senior NI types turns up, might it just be ‘lost’ or ‘overlooked’.

    The address in Portsmouth is just a very ordinary looking house.

    Either it is a not very cunning way for News International to register the company name or someone has registered the name in the hope of selling to News International or to block them registering the name.

    If NI wanted to register the name anonymously then I would have expected it to be done though some lawyers or other third party.

    Do they register the names of all their newspapers as company names?

    Presumably, a lot of Met CID officers will shortly be made redundant as the new benchmark of ‘about 8 hours’ to review evidence is applied.

    Does anyone know what the procedure is for discipling officers who fail to carry out their duty in a diligent fashion. What is the police complaints body doing about the admitted failure? What is the chief cop doing? should he not be sacking someone who has failed so badly? Can we trust him to do the next job properly or will it be just too much effort?

    Why can’t murdoch just relaunch notw with the name New News of the World?

    It succeeded for bliar when he relaunched old labour as new labour; well at least it did until gordon got his chewed paws on it.

      Haven’t you heard knobhead? All Murdoch has done is change the title with a few clicks of a mouse, and the same paper will be out next Sunday, lots of the same writers, same printers, same distributors, same ethos, same everything. The only difference being that our Rupert will not have to pay so many staffers. Hope you lefties are proud of destroying those jobs that will be lost. You really are a thick cuпt.

    O/T but there was a nice story in the papers yesterday about Alan Sugar pointing out, in an argument in Parliament about banks lending to small businesses, that Chuckles Umuna doesn’t know a thing about business.

    Chuckles’ insightful response was along the lines of “you is old skool man, yooz kno nuffink about the struggles of me bros wiz dem banks mon. i is a bizness expert cos the BBC sez I is a genius and the next Obama…”

    Whilst he is certainly not the first person to realise this the fact that he has just become labour’s biggest donor means that Ed might have to also see the truth….

    In an effort to flesh out the fictitious history of the Milibands, a lecture series was i recently invented in the name of Ralph Miliband (anti-British forger and illegal immigrant formerly known as Adoph Miliband) at the LSE. It was financed by the Gaddafis like so much else at the LSE. Is taking money from despotic torturers morally superior to employing someone with no criminal record?

    I’ve never rated News of The World but I still fail to see exactly what’s got the media and politicians of both persuasions all aerated and self righteous. They hacked phones to get stories. Not exactly a surprise. And how many of you don’t just wish you could do the same to find out stuff? NOT doing it isn’t going to suddenly bring dead kids or soldiers back to life.

    And they’ve paid bribes to coppers – well, THERE’S news! Journalists and crooks have been paying bribes to the plod since Pontius was a pupil pilot. Don’t tell me those po-faced pratts at The Guardian have never done it…or wanted to. Plod probably told THEM to piss off, like any self-respecting normal person would. Instead of verifying their articles with a backhander to Plod, they just make them up or plagiarise them instead.

    Everyone has known all this forever – it’s only when one newspaper is bloody stupid enough to get caught red-handed that now all the other papers are trying to sound whiter than white. And politicians use it as an excuse to do what they could never get away with before – muzzle the press!

    Have you seen the little piggies
    Crawling in the dirt
    And for all the little piggies
    Life is getting worse
    Always having dirt to play around in.

    Have you seen the bigger piggies
    In their starched white shirts
    You will find the bigger piggies
    Stirring up the dirt
    Always have clean shirts to play around in.

    In their styes with all their backing
    They don’t care what goes on around
    In their eyes there’s something lacking
    What they need’s a damn good whacking.

    You can see them out for dinner
    With their piggy wives
    Clutching forks and knives to eat their bacon

    Now that the NOTW has been abolished by the forces of righteousness, it means that there’ll no longer be any jokes or levity in news or sports coverage. New regulations should insist that the output of the most extreme of the humourless finger-pointing news operations – the Guardian and the BBC – must include a quota of puns and jokes.

Owen Paterson lifts the lid on the Green Blob:

“I received more death threats in a few months at Defra than I ever did as secretary of state for Northern Ireland.”



Flight Watch says:

Russia Today is a cauldron of bullsh*t. The only people that take it seriously are deluded conspiracy theorists. Other RT journos have resigned citing the same reasons.

It’s about as believable as Press TV, KCNA of North Korea or the Daily Mirror.
