Mirror’s Lawyers Increasing Work Load

Back in July, Trinity Mirror Group brought in City lawyers Herbert Smith “to help it in its dealings with the judge-led inquiry”. Guido has to wonder what this “help” really means and whether we will see some Harbottle & Lewis/ News International style “dealings”. Whether we will get a whitewash remains to be seen, but Mirror Group’s actions thus far don’t exactly inspire confidence. Either way their work load must be on the increase, especially given that the Mirror Group have already had the finger pointed at them

    MacShaneski – why the CPS delay?

    Why so many laptops?

    Any normal employee would have been sacked on the spot & charged with theft.

    If he gets away with this then there is no justice & Great Britain.

    Ah! Monika says:

    They will steal anything:-

    A bag-snatcher on a bicycle pinched a bag of poo from an elderly dog-walker in Worthing.

    The thief rode past the pensioner near the Post Office in High Street, Tarring, and grabbed a bag she had been using to clean up after her dog.

    A spokeswoman for Sussex Police said: “A male on his pushbike came past her and snatched the bag, perhaps thinking that there was something of value inside.

    “The lady was not harmed and clearly the thief stole nothing of value.”

    The crime took place at 10.45am on Sunday.

    The suspect was described as a black teenager.

    Anyone with information is asked to call Sussex Police on 0845 6070999.

    I thought Cameron was on very good form today. Miliband was very glum throughout as Cameron took the piss out of Labour’s hypocrisy on various policies.

    The Squeaker strikes again says:

    Bercow’s just ruled that the words “mug” and “hypocrites” are unparliamentary language and won’t be allowed again. Could it have anything to do with the words having been used today by Cameron to describe Labour?

New Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond has big ambitions in his first meeting with Benjamin Netanyahu today:

“I came to bring this conflict to an end.”



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.
