        I hope someone will tell us what Mr Hunt discussed with James without any civil servant taking notes. Mr Hunt is one of the enthusiastic ass kissers of Rupert and his gang.

        I am surprised Osborne has disappeared, he was the one who persuaded Cameron to hire Andy and kiss Rupert’s ass

        The smell of Fish becomes more repugnant the closer you get to the power sites of Westminister. Murdoch is a party to the fishy stink. What a bunch of smelly fuc-kers they all are. How many good men women and children are dead due to these smelly stinking Ba-tards.
        1.Lets have a WAR.
        2.Lets mug the Public
        3. Lets threaten the opposition
        4. Lets support the Politicians we have control of
        5. Ask Fu-kin Cameron why he thinks this is the biggest PEACE TIME DEFICIT he has had to manage. Is he a half wit or are we are at War and is that why we are bankrupt.
        6. Ask the Wan–r MP’s Why None of them could explain to Cameron that we are in the middle of the UK’s VIETNAM. and the same reason we are their, YES SMACK.

          You may not remember an interview Denis Healy that gave but he was being asked what might have helped the Callaghan stay in government and got the public behind them, he said something like, if only we had had a war like Margaret Thatcher did over the Falklands and of course you will know that just before that war Maggie was at her lowest popularity ever, like today no money in the treasury fast rising unemployment but money was found many killed (in the very low hundreds UK, in the thousands Argentina) Maggie’s reputation rose and she won the general election with a massive majority. B’Liar went to war (not one but two) backing Dubya and we are involved in one.

            Certainly that is the legend that the Left have cemented by constant repetition, but in fact the gap of over a year between the Falklands War and the general election makes it unlikely. One should consider rather that the economy was responding strongly to Mrs T’s restructuring by 1984 and also that the Labour Party had made itself unelectable by its support for strikes and its choice of Michael Foot as leader.

            She had to have an election in 1984 end of 5 year period and because she won that election she had a go at the miners and all but killed the mining industry her and Scargill but it was fairly close thing, the chairman of the Coal Board went out with a brown paper bag over his head. If Maggie’s popularity had been the same as in 1982 she would have been out of power but the war won her that election but goodness knows where we would have been if she had lost.

Crick gives more details in saying that sources close to Brown are now saying Rebecca Brookes informed Brown that they had been given this information by “someone at Edinburgh Royal Infirmary”.

      It shows one thing, however. The mastermind and puppetmaster behind Labour’s attacks on Murdoch has finally shown himself with one last desperate allegation to try and keep the pot boiling. Brown could well have over-reached himself if the story is falling apart this early.

    In all the hysteria its time to draw breath says:

    The story about GB’s childs medical records being “hacked” appears to be changing. Both Tom Bradby and Michael Crick are reporting that GB’s position on this matter is not quite what was reported earlier. Crick gives more details in saying that sources close to GB are now saying RB informed GB that they had been given this information by “someone at Edinburgh Royal Infirmary”.
    So was this a hacking job or a rogue member of the hospital staff tipping of the Sun ?

      Hopefully it will tell us what the labour government knew about hacking and when. And why it didn’t do anything to stop it! And why it developed strong friendships with NI even whilst it knew the hacking was happening! And who in labour was responsible!!

    If someone phoned me up and told me about the very private medical details of a member of my family my reaction would be “how the f*** do you know?” and I would require an answer because the events demand one.

    I would not form a friendship, give an interview and complain years later.

    All this shows is that Brown chose to further compromise his family’s privacy for his political objectives (ably supported by another) by cooperating rather than by reacting as he ought to have done.

    All that being said, it is a disgrace that these details were obtained.

    It is a further disgrace that RB rang him up – what kind of a person does that knowing the position she holds and he holds? How does someone who does that become a friend – because they were not ringing up in the guise of a friend?

In any event Brown did not see fit to report what had happened to Police but now sees fit to bring it up. Pathetic.

    Prime Minister Ed Milibands Office says:

    DAVID Cameron is mistaken if he hopes a judge-led inquiry will defuse the News of the World phone hacking scandal and related allegations that precipitated the arrest of Andy Coulson, the Prime Minister’s former communications secretary.

    In normal circumstances, an inquiry launch, and raft of supporting policy moves, would deflect attention away from the Prime Minister’s personal liability. After all, such tactics have been successfully deployed in the past and come straight from the handbook of tabloid journalists who go on to become pivotal political advisers.

    However, this affair is of a totally different magnitude and will continue to undermine Mr Cameron’s credibility until he is far more candid, and apologetic, about why he hired a former editor who had resigned in disgrace when his Royal reporter was jailed for hacking into the phone of Prince William.

    The Prime Minister should have been far more rigorous with the checks that he undertook ahead of Mr Coulson’s appointment. That he was not, and that he then compounded this lapse by failing to heed the confidential warnings of Alan Rusbridger, whose Guardian newspaper has been exposing the scale of hacking, will be a matter of lasting regret

    Well I for one am glad gordon is back.

    I feel absolutely certain that he will clear up this mystery surrounding his statements.

    How he says rebekah personally told him about the hacking, and hacking him specifically, in 2006 . How he and his unlovely wife wined, dined and feted her for three years after that even arranging her 40th birthday party for her in 2008. And how now he is claiming to only just have found out about it all which is why he wasn’t able to take any action whilst he was pm.

    gordon is so clever, so honorable and caring; bullyballs has been saying so for years.

    He obviously felt sorry for the pressure on cameron and coulson and in one fell swoop he has moved all the media attention away from them and onto himself and labour making the story so much bigger.

    What labour knew, when labour knew it, why labour didn’t do anything about it? Fascinating!!

      Such a remit then would include coulson and baldwin and of course anyone who crossed over into government from the beeb.

    Just a thought, as Sky News now seem to be getting worried abot their survival now that NI have decided not to hive them off as part of any deal. They have mentioned the possibility of their closure.

    Could Murdoch take this an an opportunity to shut them down and toss out the many ex-BBC and wannabe BBC staff, who seem to have been in cahoots with Labour, BBC and Guardian with this.?

    It would only be temporary of course, as it could re-launch after the takeover and when he has sold some of his papers to keep the MMC happy.

    He could then re-staff it, I suspect there would be a few more Aussies and Americans running the place this time, and not the ex-BBC tossers that are there now.

Sarah Vine writes of Esther McVey…

“McVey told Grazia that she hasn’t married or had children because she ‘never found anyone to wind her biological clock’ … If I remember rightly, half the current Cabinet would have cheerfully ‘wound her clock’ if she’d given them a glimmer of a chance.”

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.
