MPs Call For Piers Morgan To Give Evidence About Hacking

Three Conservative MPs have joined calls to see Piers Morgan answer questions about phone-hacking. Last week the Liberal Democrat MP Adrian Sanders implicated the Mirror in the hacking scandal:

“…the Daily Mirror, when under the auspices of Piers Morgan, is suspected of using voicemail interception to reveal Sven-Goran Eriksson’s affair with Ulrika Jonsson. Given that there are questions over Scotland Yard’s handling of the current case, it is essential that its actions are reviewed independently and that future action against suspected phone hackers does not remain solely the domain of the Met.”

As Lord Justice Leveson prepares his inquiry, a long list of witnesses will be drawn up. This must include executives, editors and hacks of the News of the World’s rivals. This is about more than Murdoch now. 

Aidan Burley MP | Nigel Adams MP | Douglas Carswell MP

Member of Parliament, Aidan Burley, told Guido:

“In the light of these new allegations about telephone hacking during his editorship of the Daily Mirror, Piers Morgan should be called to the phone-hacking inquiry to face questions on oath.”

Nigel Adams MP added:

“If evidence surfaces that Piers Morgan had some knowledge of phone hacking while he was in the newspaper industry, it would of course seem sensible to ask him to appear before the inquiry.” 

Douglas Carswell MP also called for Morgan to appear before Lord Leveson’s inquiry:

“Piers Morgan needs to come and explain what he knows about the vile practice of phone hacking and if he knew it was taking place at the Mirror.  No celebrity is too grand to come and answer questions.”

And it’s not just lawmakers who are on Morgan’s case. Kevin Bakhurst, the BBC News Channel’s boss told Guido this morning that the BBC was actively pursuing the Morgan story and he had already invited Piers to explain on air via Twitter. Sky News have also given him an opportunity to clear his name live on Sky. Never like Piers to ignore some airtime…


UPDATE: Another Tory MP weighs in, with Louise Mensch stating:

“At the very least Mr Morgan should answer the allegations put forward by a prominent UK blog. It is also clear to me that the inquiry must cover not only News International, but Trinity Mirror Group, Associated Newspapers and other tabloid organisations.”

UPDATE II: In New York Business Insider says:

“It’s sounding less and less likely that CNN’s Piers Morgan is going to manage to stay free of the Murdoch phone-hacking scandal engulfing Britain…
…CNN had no comment when we reached out to them yesterday regarding the report.”

    Brown should be invited for a hearing under oath too, because:

    1968: Rebekah Brooks was born

    2006: Sun publishes story about Brown’s son

    2008: Brown’s wife organises Brooks’s 40th birthday bash

    2011: Brown very carefully crafts his answers in a bbeb interview, not making any clear accusations but rather raising questions about how the information about his son got public.

    Either the year 2008 or the year 2011 should be marked “inconsistent” in the above time line for which the help of Brown seems necessary.

    MPs should also conduct a simple but time consuming advert and page count for public sector job adverts in newspapers over the period 1997-2010 with particular focus on the Guardian and compare Guardian and Independent, another newspaper that is not overly in love with the conservatives. This should include all strands of the public sector including beeb, quangos, councils, nhs, dvla whatever.

    Check website ads as well.

    Ask newspaper FD how much money the get from public sector job adverts and express it as percentage of revenues.

    Look at other advertising such as 5-a-day etc as well.

    Labour has been propping up the Guardian through public sector job adverts. Beeb puts 75% of its adverts in Guardian.

    Labour Gaurdian links:
    -Wagg Prosser (ex Mandelson PA)
    -Ashley (father labour peer)
    -MP on media select committee used to be with the Observer
    and there must be others

    Result should be a law requiring careful spreading of ads and one central website for all public setor jobs to save costs and prevent purchase of biased reporting.

Miliband is not interested in the Dowler family et al, all he is interested in is himself and justifying his position as leader of the labour party by any means
    Just like Gordon Brown, Ed Miliband will never good enough.

    What did the warnings consist of?

    Was it one sentence about Coulson in a converstation with a wide range of topics or was 20 minutes spent on Coulson?

    Why should a conservative staffer take everything word for word from an editor of a hostile newspaper that hates everyone from the Murdoch stables?

    Why listen to an editor who is bought by labour’s clever placing of public sector job adverst in his paper?

    Murdo McSponge says:

    With reference to one Piers Morgan’s situation in the hacking party, if I remember rightly, The Mirror has a proven involvement in phone hacking going back to the very early days of mobile phones. Wasn’t phone hacking responsible for “tampaxgate”? I believe, in the first pages of his memoires, a long serving editor of the Mirror quotes as his / the Rag’s greatest scoop, as a “hacked” mobile telephone conversation between Prince Charles and, the then, Camilla Parker Bowles, in which the aforementioned expressed the desire to be the latter’s “tampax”. Unfortunately, at the time the P of W was married to the fragrant Diana, which made for a very saucy story. Suffice it to say that The Mirror has a very long history of listening to peoples’ private conversations. The World (and the Labour Party) should have that pointed out to them.

    This extract from “Seen elsewhere; (Lobby Dog)”


    Part 1

    1 To inquire into the culture, practices, and ethics of the press, including:

    a. Contacts between national newspapers and politicians;

    b. The relationship between the press and the police;

    c. The extent to which the current policy and regulatory framework has failed; and the extent to which there was a failure to act on previous warnings about media misconduct.”

    I do not think it is right to leave the Broadcast media out of this enquiry; it should involve the entire media spectrum.

    Many journalists have intimate links with the Broadcast media, and the politicians are probably more closely involved with the broadcast media than they are with the Press.

    The spotlight needs to be shone on the links between broadcasters and politicians, especially if recommendations are to be made on a replacement for the Lobby system.

    I cannot be the only person who has been deeply perturbed by the links between the last Government, the present Opposition, and the BBC.

    The thinking may be that broadcasters are regulated by a government body, Ofcom (or possibly Ofcon), wheras the print media operate voluntary self-regulation through the Press Complaints Commission, a body many claim is utterly toothless.

    You do raise an interesting point, though. How is government to disseminate information, and be held to account, if the lobby system is abolished? Clearly formal predd briefings will continue, but what other access will journalists (print, broadcast and new media) be permitted? It is very much in the public’s interest that journalism can continue to expose corruption and wrongdoing – not that the lobby was particularly successful at that.

    So on the basis of not allowing one media organisation to not own too much shouldn’t the BBC be broken up.
    It’s high time the license fee was done away with as this is nothing short of a monopoly. So if you want BBC pay a subscription to them, if not pay it to whichever TV company you want.

    Gordon Brown’s true and factual statement to MPs.

    Gordon Brown today responded angrily to charges of his governments close ties to the Murdoch empire.

    “In June 2009 I ordered a judicial review that stripped Newscorp of its holding in BskyB.
    Then in Jan 2010, I personally discovered that Rupert had himself been listening in to phone messages. If you remember at that instant I put out a public service information broadcast, across all media streams , informing people of the need to change their pin code. Then I cut off all ties with Brooks and Murdoch and co, and have never seen or spoken to them since.

    I remind the House that it was me who personally told Cameron that Coulson was a rotten liar, and then led a rabble of angry Sun readers to the gates of Wapping, where we stormed the Bastille and raised the flag of truth {mirror Group} over the burning remnants.

    I also reopened all the mines that Thatcher closed, paid off the nation’s debt, with money I had been prudently saving in a giant glass bottle under my bed.
    I warned Europe about credit default swaps and toxic loans, subprime mortgages and so on. Unfortunately they did not follow the UK’s lead, in which I myself, if you recall, removed the ineffectual Darling and took on duel roles and became Super Prime Chancellor. I managed to save Northern rock just in time. And the entire British banking industry, thus avoiding a recession in the UK.

    Oh yes… I also ensured MPs were kept in line and not allowed to fiddle their expenses. I also sold off the nations gold reserves just this morning, as gold is at a record high.

    I shall now be answering planted questions before returning to Downing Street for a meeting with President Obama before flying to Italy to sort Mr Berlusconi’s problems.

    And on a personnel I would like to respond to critics who claim I have not had a 100% attendance record in this house recently. Note, I have also nearly finished my research into a cure for baldness and am continuing my training for the Jupiter space program, of which I am lead designer and chief test pilot.

    And later on I shall be putting the children to bed, having made them supper and done the washing up.

    Any questions?

    When is he going to represent the Fifers- stupid enough to vote for this joke- and not himself?
    Murdoch will beat Brown cos this joke of a MP is as straight as a corkscrew when it comes to telling the truth. His story is more crooked and twisted than Murdoch could ever have imagined. Brown is as guilty as every other PM in conspiring with Murdoch, Morgan &others. Disgraceful.

    Why would one need to hack into into an MPs phone?

We’ll take Wax back too but that’ll cost ya. Have a nice day y’all!

    Brown was appalling this evening, even by his own miserable standards. ‘I rise not to speak about myself’, he intoned at the start, before proceeding to use 85 personal pronouns!

Graham’s a terrific presenter, a self proclaimed libertarian and he often ridicules Brown, Labour and socialists. I didn’t see Brown’s speech today but Graham says it was very strange and he came across as unstable. He also says even the Labour bench looked uncomfortable during his speech!

    Asking a relevant question says:

    Amidst all the sanctimonious grandstanding from MPs Can a UK citizen(foreign citizens can’t I know) in actual fact be COMPELLED to appear before a Select Committee. and if they did surely they could refuse to answer any question that might incriminate them in view of an ongoing police inquiry….and if they refused a summons(not an invite)can they be COMPELLED to appear before Parliament ? I heard that there is some obscure 17th Century law on the matter but I understand that it has never been tested and I’m sure some very expensive constitutional lawyers will argue why their client is not compelled to appear would ultimately give the truth to the fact that Parliament is a toothless tiger…Parliament could have course pass a Bill to rectify I suppose but this looks like being the mother of all fights between the Murdoch press and Parliament to me

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
