Breaking: Morgan Nemesis James Hipwell to Testify Wednesday

The former Mirror journalist whose testimony will painful to watch for Piers Morgan will be before Leveson on Wednesday morning. The day after Morgan.

In July Hipwell spoke out of his time at Morgan’s Mirror:

“I used to see it going on around me all the time when I worked at the Daily Mirror. I sat right next to the show business desk and there were some show biz reporters who did it as a matter of course, as a basic part of their working day. One of their bosses would wander up and instruct a reporter to `trawl the usual suspects’, which meant going through the voice messages of celebrities and celebrity PR agents. For everyone to pretend that this is some isolated activity found only at the News of the World is ridiculous, it’s just a lie.”

Said Showbiz Editor was one Mr. Richard Wallace who is also expected to give evidence this week. He is now the Mirror’s editor…

UPDATE: Sky’s digital-guru Neal Mann scooped Guido by about eight seconds. He’s pretty grumpy about this.

    Of course if piers was doing well in the States and increasing his TV stats it wouldn’t matter so much. But he’s fronting a show that’s haemorraging viewers and his bosses might be looking for a reason to get rid of him. This just might be the reason!

    Lets face it it’s costing a fortune now. What at the end will the taxpayer be charged for this charade?
    When leave-a-stone finishes he will produce a set of recommendations that will be either followed or like all the other enquires will be found buried under a compost heap like all the rest.

    So since it was the showbiz reporters who were hacking into phones does this include the 3am Girls? Would this also include a certain former 3am Girl whom Private Eye refers to as “Bryony Gormless”, and is now being given more “grown up” jobs at the Telegraph? (Thank you Mr. Brogan)

    No Nell. It was just Ned being Ned. Labour were utterly indifferent to phone-hacking when Murdoch was re-printing their press releases as fact and supporting Blair in Iraq and the Maximum Imbecile’s systematic destruction of the UK economy.

    It was only when Murdoch jumped ship that the wicked and malicious Labour party spat the dummy out.

  40. 40
    Jimmy says:

    I believe the recent “revelation” was that the voicemail was set to delete messages automatically if they had been listened to.

    Besides, are you under the impression that Dowler was the only such case? To listen to the bleating recently one might be forgiven for thinking so.

  41. 41

    @ Billy. Last year, I heard Jimmy spent Hogmanay in England. He came with clean underwear and a £20 note. When he got home, he hadn’t changed either of them.

  42. 42
    nellnewman says:

    Well too true jgm.

    But then that makes them immoral because they are not holding to a principle of free press unless that is the ‘free press’ is in their favour!!

    @Billy. I am sure that he is very relieved to hear that…

  44. 44
    Jimmy says:

    If you’re arguing we should have acted sooner I’m not going to disagree. Some of our people did indeed get far too close. You will no doubt join with me in saluting those who did not.

    Not entirely. I’ve heard he sometimes uses profanities.

  63. 63
    The Paragnostic says:

    The question raised by Colin Myler’s evidence to Leveson today is:

    Given that the Met obviously knew from their enquiries into the Goodman affair that phone hacking was widespread, why was there no further police action until 2010? Could it be that Labour’s placemen in the Met put a lid on it for political purposes?

    That is the question that the Labour party has to answer – and it seems to me that they, and CommissarCommissioner Ian Blair are up to their necks in this.

    Some of our people did indeed get far too close.

    And the rest of them just kept their mouths shut and basked in the glow of power and played at being all growed-up. Meanwhile, with NI acquiescence, Blair brought us all an unnecessary war in Iraq and the Maximum Imbecile borrowed an average of 30bn quid a year during the ‘boom’ years, employed 1,000,000 bedwetters, boxtickers and bastards with the borrowed money to rig the unemployment figures, imported a million or so from Asia just to p!55 off the golf-club members and… well… generally fucked everything up.

    ‘get far too close’

    They fucking loved it. You all loved it. Murdoch telling you how great you all were, how brilliant your war in Iraq was, how prescient the Maximum Imbecile’s imbecile economic policy was. You all fucking well loved it. None of you gave a shit if Murdoch was anally raping newborns as long as he was behind the parteh. Just as y’all didn’t give a shit when Blair rigged the ‘evidence’ to justify his insane war in Iraq or Brown employed one million bedwetters at huge expense just to rig the unemployment figures.

    As evidenced by the pure bile y’all spit now that he’s jumped ship and doesn’t love you any more.

    I don’t know about you but if somebody asked me did I ever authorise phone-tapping I’d be able to give a pretty solid ‘No’ instead of inferring that my life was so incredibly busy and complex that a trivial thing like, oh, phone hacking, would send down no more of a mental marker than being asked ‘Have you ever had ‘Cheerios’ for breakfast?’

    Jimmy,the police admitted they had listened to the voicemail messages on Millie Dowler’s mobile phone. It’s highly likely THEY are the people responsible for the deletions but were to embarrassed about admitting it and so it suited their purposes when the Guardian wrongly alleged it was the NOTW was responsible. Still no definite proof that journos hacked Millie’s phone.

    not a machine says:

    28.8% turnout lowest for 11yrs in bye election
    Labour got 54% of vote

    so basically bad weather an all , 62% of electorate could not be bothered to vote , hardly that good a rush to Labour really is it . Its more an endorsement of a wet thursday at christmas than eds voter appeal .

    NN made me laugh when ambassador said “we havent yet seen what the details are” I just thought my goodness how well organised these people are 1 week after summit still no details for members . and some have already said No to tax harmonisation and no10 now taking up observers offer (flask, sandwiches ,sleeping bag , 50 shirts check)

    not a machine says:

    i think Dave called it a treaty outside the treaty , although treaty within a treaty was also used . so as i understand it vetoed joining a treaty not yet made or signed by any other state , ie said no to new eurozone compact becomming institutions of EU .

    But at least mr Barroso cannot now say 1 vs 26

    In the meantime how many of you know about the ‘secret’ organ of the DWP, set up to harrass and gaol disabled people? These disability integrity centres are springing up around the country to redefine who is disabled and redefine who is eligible for benefits. Even parliament wasn’t told about their existence.

    Sounds like the stazi to me. Sounds like a little bit of ethnic cleansing courtesy of Ian Doombrain Smith. Sounds typical of a right wing coalition government.. The bankers, who have cost this country dear, go free and are encouraged …. everybody else is either a criminal or a terrorist

    “Debt is our only weapon and we must use it to impose better conditions, because recession itself is what is stopping us complying with the (EU-IMF Troika) accord. We should make the legs of the German bankers tremble,” he said.

    The lights are going out all over Europe......back at the table by February says:

    The reason that the Germans are now trying to be nice to the British after last week and agree to them having observer status during negotiations is because they have looked at the budget figures and suddenly realised that the UK is the second largest net contributor after them and if the French are allowed to have their way and push UK out of EU the Germans will have to make up the shortfall.
    We’ll be back at the negotiating table in February as other nations are now decidely luke warm over the accord now they have had a chance to look at it back in their own capitals and discovered that their national Parliaments are less than keen…sp much for “isolation” in Europe… was always bollocks being spouted by the BBC, Guardian, Labour and the LibDems

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.”
