    Morgan is a despicable shit – about time he got his comeuppance. Perhaps the Feeeeebs could arrest him while we go about extraditing him, and lock him up for a while. I bet a bit of pretty boy British ass would go down well in one of those rough american prisons.

    If the bint that brought this up at the select committee meeting today did so on the basis of what she had read on here over the past week I really do give up. Surely if you are going to accuse in parliament, an ex-Daily Mirror editor of admitting phone hacking, you make sure your accusation is watertight, not based in some half cock story you read on Guido’s blog at midnight after a bottle of Chardonnay. Jesus H. Christ.

    For tomorrow’s debate, I hope the incompetents who usually advise Cameron on PMQs do their job and tell him to mention Brooks’ comment that she regularly visited No10 when Labour were in power but has never been while Cameron’s been PM. That should wipe the smug grins off the faces of the Labour front bench.

    His book only explained how you go about phone hacking and it certainly hinted that he may have done it, but he never admitted it and he certainly never said that’s how he won ‘scoop of the year’ I think it was Guido that said that.

    Afghanistan Banana Stand says:

    It may be because he’s an odious git.
    It may because he has a face that just begs to be punched (Clarkson!).
    It may be because he’s smarmy.
    It may be because he could give Vaz a run for his money in the ‘I’m an Oily bastard’ stakes.

    But I don’t believe him.

    Epic fail. It’s getting boring for ordinary folks. Slaphead Robinson and Perky Peston trying their best to breathe life into this boring bollox.

    The Murdoch’s win easily on points. Special mention to Mrs M for slapping the Labour twat. Hope Murdoch close’s The Times – after all his UK titles are loss making and less than 1% of his corporate turnover. Murdoch’s doing the establishment a favour keeping the paper open.

    SC: Ok Piers, the stage is yours. What are you going to do for us tonight?

    PM: I’m going to contradict my diary entries whilst keeping a straight face.

    SC: Is that all piers?

    PM: No, I’m going to accuse two past it Swedes of lying when they’ve got little or nothing to gain by it!

    SC: Well done Piers, You’re through to the next round, take a seat next to Lupurt, James, Rebekah, Andy………………….

    The suspects were shown to be proper people by comparison with their interrogating midgets.

    Dave was probably fortunate to be away as hot air filled the bubble.

    Let’s hope he can prick it tomorrow and deliver a coup de grace to Millimong and his pathetic mob (including Pravda and the Guardianistas)

    It won’t be tomorrow. I reckon his inner PR airhead thinks it will all blow over if he can just wait until the MPs are out of town on recess. He’s toast.

    But yes, Cameron will be gone before conference season. The leadership will be an absolute free-for-all: Gove v Davis v Fox v Hague v May. Hunt is too compromised by the BSKYB disaster and Osborne is even more hated than Cameron is.

    Cameron’s trip to Africa will go down in history as one of the great inexplicable errors of judgment, like Thatcher’s jaunt to Paris during the Heseltine challenge.

    The Grey Suits are marching.

    What about the stuff in Piers diary that implicates him in the phone hacking of the Sven & Ulrika story?

    How does he answer that one?

    And that’s without doing any digging!

    The truth is there were a number of people ‘at it’ in every downmarket newsroom (and some not so downmarket too)… this whole business just now is Murdoch and co. taking a kicking from the Labour Party, the BBC and Murdoch’s competitors because one or two people were stupid and insensitive enough to ‘hack’ non-celebrities – it’s not like anyone gave a stuff about Hugh Grant et al being snooped on…

    P.S. Hugh, how is Divine Brown doing these days? Did she dislike the press publicity as much as you did? :-)

    There are all his labour appointees in the met , there are all his labour appointees in government and then there is his very special appointee , the serjeant at arms of the HoP, ms pays.

    Her Maj usually makes that appointment.

    gordon swept her aside in 2008 to give the job to a labour supporter. There have been constant security breaches ever since, the worst today when an 80 year old man was attacked giving evidence in the HoP and Britain was shamed right across the world media.

When Green pointed out that it is a matter of principle for politicians not to interfere with ongoing police investigations, when probed on Llewellyn’s refusal to have Cameron briefed on phone hacking by Yates, the beeb presenter did not even let him finish his sentence.

    Another insight into bbc and guardian biasedness is perhaps that my local tv station ( I live abroad) at 10 uk time reported that first result of investigation into cause of death of that whistleblower indicates death was not brought onto him by an outside cause (literally translated). It’s now well over an hour later and beeb are still keeping quiet about it.

    as for that old fart murdoch (almost) getting a slap, think on about how fox news happily pushed the pro-war agenda and just how many old farts in iraq got far more than a cream pie in their faces. i hope both him and his son do a “bob”.

    The huge stories of the day are what this manufactured hysteria is supposed to misdirect everyone’s attention away from. EU and US financial crash. The abject final failure of the welfare state model.

    The usual leftist mouthpieces have attempted to play this up in the United States. They are after Fox News.

    Wm T Sherman says:

    If you will indulge me, a completely off-topic question: Has anyone here heard of a current American scandal, Operation Fast and Furious? Briefly, BATFE (the federal gun regulation bureau), in conjunction with the federal Department of Justice (DOJ) pressured gun shops on the Mexican-U.S. border to sell high-powered weapons to to straw purchasers who then transferred the weapons to criminal gangs in Mexico and Honduras. The apparent purpose of the program was to justify stricter U.S. gun laws. A few thousand guns were moved in the program, and have been used to kill hundreds of people in Mexico and a U.S. Border Patrol agent in Arizona. The DOJ is stalling and appears to be engaged in a cover-up. This is a little like Watergate, except of course for the part where a bunch of people get killed. These are Executive Branch agencies by the way – the chain of command ultimately goes to the President.

    A Congressional committee is investigating and the acting head of BATFE is already contradicting DOJ and Adminstration officials. The press here is being quite complicit in hushing it up. Has anyone heard about it?

Meanwhile in the US deadlock on raising the debt levels is still there and the deadline of 2 August is fast approaching

    There is a tsunami hurtling towards this country from across the Atlantic and the Channel and what do our elected represenatives think is the best use of the remaining time ??…You’ve guessed it….sanctimonious ,self-serving attacks on Murdoch and the media. Politicians are all guilty of dereliction of duty to the country and to their elctors.They need to start earning their pay and dealing with the major issues that will impact on this country more than this issue and the REAL concerns of their electorate.(If they’d like a list I can easily submit one to them as they seem keen on people submitting papers to them !)

    Your problem is thus: it’s not the Labour party you know – that’s what the “New” signifies.

    The current lot are simply a group of opportunitstic thieves who once got a marketing guru on board and ganged up with the press (yes, they are culpable, Murdoch liked that power) to bamboozle the country into handing over money to their mates. Hence the huge influx of consultants (they give that fine “it wasn’t me” scandal rinse), hence the war (fastest way to convert tax into private equity), hence the taxing of everything that moved (pension funds – now see who’s got anything left), hence the financial mismanagement (selling gold at the lowest price ever), hence the endless, endless spin (it worked the first time, and there was no other way to hang on to Mandelson) and hence the deep surveillance (gotta keep an eye out for those that wake up).

    New Labour isn’t Labour: only its marketing sounded that way. Best hint: the gang leader now needs to set up a private bank to manage all the loot.

    Moley. says:

    The only way that Cameron can make progress is by addressing the terrible problems at the BBC.

    What we have seen in the last few days is the willingness of the BBC to throw away all restraint and whip up a frenzy of left wing bile that sucks idiots like May-Bowles straight in.

    The BBC’s failure to monitor and address its institutional political bias has led to a situation where it took only a small stimulus to push the broadcaster to foment left wing hysteria in order to take on what is actually just a commercial rival.

    The NHS is a national disgrace, it is a putrid organisation which costs a fortune and specialises in killing and humiliating its customers. It needs reforming and the block to that reform is vested left wing political interests in the BBC.

    The financial scene is truly dreadful and it appears more than likely that further radical reductions in Government expenditure may be unavoidable. Having a national broadcaster which whips up left wing hysteria at the drop of a hat will lead to a national disaster.

    The BBC cannot police itself because its bias is institutional. A way has to be found to ensure that the BBC acts as a balanced and restraining influence which functions for the national interest and not against it.

    If the BBC can’t or won’t take the necessary action it must be broken up.

This was rapidly followed by the same reporter “blagging” his way into the victims office in search of further “clues”.

    Of course this was in the days prior to mobile phones. Obviously the BBC would never dream of doing this sort of thing. It’s just fiction…

    Personally I think I would rather see these twat politicians carry on with their witch hunt of Murdoch, none of them have any experience in using public taxes for the publics use, the only experience they have is using it on themselves , what’s going to happen is going to happen and we can do nothing about it, I would rather wait until the tsunami is just hitting and then tell them, with luck it could sweep a lot of the trash away, obambi,EUSSR etc plus politicians.

    I get treated regularly at a private unit and get better service than the NHS. While some private units are as bad as the NHS, if the management is good it i better than the NHS.

    I have a private room, own toilet and washing facilities, Also get a decent sandwich and TV. It is clean.

    This is good as i have to spend 12 hours a week thier

    Interesting point from yesterdays “Polite” Questioning of Sir Paul Stevenson
    Scotland Yard has FORTY FIVE press officers
    so why did they need Wallace on £1000 per day ?

    Another thing !
    Have you noticed over the last few years ,You no longer see the police driving around in Ford Escorts or Vauxhall Astra’s
    Now a days it’s BMW’s Sabaru’s, Mitsibishi’s and any other high preformance cars
    on the market
    This must be to tie in with their expensive lifestyles
    No wonder policing is costing us so much !

    Yesterday was a farce, the murdochs appoint managers to run the company. As rupert said the newspapers are 1% of the company. The mangement time devoted to this i bet is not much.

    This is again like the foxhunting debate a lot of time spent on an issue which most people do not give a toss about, who cares if sienna miller phone was hacked. Its the last time anyone from the media had any interest in her.

    If politicians phones were hacked why did they leave them on the default setting, shows how thick they are. Are they capable of being MPs

    One image from yesterday sums up what Britain became under Labour : a thick plod gently wiping the face of a scumbag who had just violently attacked a frail defenceless 80 year old.

    Contrast with the magnificent Wendi who leapt on the fucker like a tiger, slapped his kisser and then rubbed foam into his face. The most poetic of poetic justice.

    Sarah Montague on Today, to Trevor Kavanagh of the Sun: ‘So, you cannot categorically say that the Sun did not use phone hacking to get stories?’

    TK: ‘And you know all the journalists and researchers in the BBC and working for Today are squeaky clean as well, do you?’

    Then I woke up and realised that although I was right to believe that Today had slimed its way down to do a most contrived hatchet job of a ‘denial story’, the second part was just wishful thinking.

    Jess The Dog says:

    Operation Motorman. Appendix 1 to the paper released today. Daily Mirror is third on the list. Daily Mail is top of the list. Morgan’s dabs will be all over this if anyone bothers to look. He wasn’t just at the Mirror and led the feeding frenzy on celebrities.

    News of the Screws is further down the list… probably because they had another route to the data, through the Metropolitan Police as we all know so well.


    What is striking about Motorman is the hint of intimidation and wider criminal connections … blagging Ian Hislop’s details (longstanding editor of Private Eye) and also the details of investigative journalists.

    Two further causes for concern.

    Firstly, the Met. They’re now being exposed for the Sweeney-type nod-and-wink media relations that somehow outlived the 1970s. I’m guessing they gained some intelligence benefits as well. This is presumably why no-one wanted to probe too deeply into the Screws phone-hacking and why no-one wanted to know about it beyond the narrow focus on the Royal Household. This is the biggest scandal to hit them in decades, probably since the 1970s. Clarke, Stephenson and Yates were working within the system they knew. Hayman is an entirely different character, even by the Met’s cosily-corrupt standards.

    Secondly, the government. Other than Cameron’s recklessness in taking on Andy Coulson (a mistake now being copied enthusiastically by Ed Miliband), most of this is on the last government’s watch. What was the Home Office doing? What did Downing Street know about this (and about other investigations by Yates of the Yard)? Those in the Westminster bubble knew fine well what was going on, up to the very top, and turned an equally blind eye as long as they thought they could use media relationships to their advantage…thinking they would one day crack the whip instead of jumping through hoops.

    It is vital that this doesn’t sink Cameron, otherwise the endemic police-politician-media corruption will simply be put down to Coulson and anyone else at NI who takes the hit. I can’t see how this will sink Cameron, as Blair escaped far worse and Brown struggled through similar scandals.

    Alas, Louise Mensch appears to have tripped up a little on quoting from Morgan’s diaries. However, in her defence, she appears to have been reading between the lines. When I read the entry, it seemed to be written with a rather large nod, wink and a scratch of the chin. ‘Hmm…apparently this phone hacking thing has been going on… wonder how you do that, then…. wonder who’s been hacked…. hmmm…’

    Kavanagh’s quiet analysis of the BBC being obsessed with the ‘NI Hackgate’ was spoilt by the appearance of two Beeboid Weirdos in the shape and voices of Pesto and Toenails! What a comparison ! Peston is unfit for radio work, how did he get a job in this medium with that delivery. Toenails’s is so smug with his biased analysis where he tries to convey not the story but that he is such a clever cnut! WTF!

    Tyrone Oobie says:

    In the pub last night, some suit (well pissed) was talking loudly about the Murdoch trial. He reckons its all a big farce and that everyone new that the press were hacking phones and trawling peoples weely bins for years. He reckons that the reason that reporters were not prosecuted for hacking phones was that some of them were working for Downing Street.
    Then he starts banging on about Jackie Smith putting pressure on the Bill and the Crown Prosecution Service to let off some of the journos because Brown, Balls, McBride, Watson and Alistair Campbell were using them to gather info. He reckons that Fat Jackie got away with thieving because she kept schtoom that Browns lot were blackmailing all sorts of people. That’s why Murdoch switched sides, the guy reckons that they got fed up with the hypocracy of the government. Then some bloke with a Scottish accent said that was bollocks, it was because Murdoch follows the money and he knew that Brown would lose the election. The Scottish bloke then started on about the millionaire toffs buying votes and blaming Labour for their greedy gambling with the bankers.
    It started getting nasty then so I finished my pint and eased away. What a load of bollocks! They are all in it together and its us that have to pay for them.

    Your are correct about the BBC of course. But “Whipping up left-wing hysteria” is all they are doing. They’re indulging in big lefty circle-jerk whilst everyone else couldn’t give a crap or would like to see the news agenda move on to more important things (and there are plenty of those). But rest assured, when the previous government’s wrong-doings and Tom Baldwin’s past, come back to haunt Labour, The BBC won’t be saying a damn thing about it!

    Morgan Quote “For the record, in my time at the Mirror and the News of the World, I have never hacked a phone, told anybody to hack a phone or published any story based on the hacking of a phone.”

    A caveat of “That I am aware of” would have been sensible because if it becomes clear that, say, the Ulrika story was obtained by somebody at the Daily Mirror listening to her voicemail then it will be very difficult for Mr Morgan to claim the “Rebekah” defence of “I didn’t know it was happening”

    Even Simon Cowell wont be able to help this time.

    He’s going down……………………… (in my opinion)

    Blagging, like any investigation of a news story, is disgusting. I want reporters to ignore any leads they get, show no initiative (such as getting FOI documents on MP’s expenses) and just be spoon fed ‘news’ by spin doctors, like the lobby journalists. Or just make news up like the Daily Mail does.

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
