Guido Fashion: Brooks at Leveson Edition

Guido’s can’t help but notice Rebekah Brooks has gone for the classic Salem Show Trial chic for her turn on the stand…

    Raving Loon says:

    Will execs from the Mirror be put before the show trial, er, I mean enquiry as they have had more complaints than anyone else?

      Rage Against the Politcal Elite says:

      Brooks should be next Prime Minster as she sounds exactly like the Lying Political Class, Would fit in very well, maybe a position in the house of Lords once she gets out of JAIL.

  2. 2
    YorkshireLad says:

    “Burn her!!”

  3. 3
    Jay says:

    Got a feeling will be simliar to Coulson yesterday.

  4. 5
    Steve Miliband says:

    Witch Brooks will turn up at Levenson?

  5. 6
    The lumpen proletariat says:

    I wish they’d get to the point!

  6. 7
    jgm2 says:

    Jeeezus. She is not what you would call ‘conventionally attractive’ is she?

    • 29
      Ian E says:

      She’s not even what one might term unconventionally ‘attractive’! The REALLY odd thing is that she obviously thinks she’s a stunner.

      The Word you are looking for is, “Striking”. Covers everybody from a Page 3 Stunna to the Eagles sisters and Dame Widdicome.

      9 pint maybe

      Samantha Brick says:

      I hate her because she’s such a beauty. Strange men she doesn’t know stop her in the street and give her things.

    Brass Eye says:

    Brilliant :)

    Brooks/Dave SMS Bingo cards ….

    in the unlikely event that anything on the cards
    turns out to be right should you assume any
    prior leak from a core participant, and anyone
    using these cards as a drinking game has only
    themselves to blame for any pre-lunch
    hangover that occurs.

    ‘Ere ain’t she that one off Twilight??? OMG Taylor Lautner is soooooo FIT!!!!! LOL!!!!

    Wok Gon says:

    Has she stuck her head up one of Brooksy’s or the Mets horses arse, I though she was a ginger minger

    Johnny says says:

    Do the collar and cuffs match?

    No Name No Pat Drill says:

    Reba Macintyre oops sorry Rebekah Brooks claimed today that here hair was not red, it was merely an attitude

  14. 24
    Olfactorally Sharp says:

    I hope Leveson is wearing a peg on his nose, I have stood near enough to the ginger one and I have to tell you now, it is not at all pleasant!

  15. 25
    Quisling says:


    She admits becoming friendly with Mr Blair after she became Sun editor – but there were no texts or emails because he did not have a phone or computer, she says.

    I wonder why Bliar didn’t have a phone or computer?

    Dick the Prick says:

    Probably would, wouldn’t be high fiving my chums but probably would.

    man in the Street wot reads the Sun says:

    Did cameron shag her?? hurry up we want to know!!! And what about the all night orgies in Chipping Norton, those libidinous sessions of totally free expression during which government policy was manufactured – how many? how often? did he cum???

  18. 28
    Cressida's Dick says:

    The only people who care about this farce are those who don’t need to worry where the money for their next gas bill is coming from.

    Politicians and journos have been screwing each other over since the year dot if there was advantage to be gained. It’s not news.

      Member of the public says:

      Maybe, but many want Replicant Dave to fall which is why the knitting circle is assembled. Just in case

  19. 33
    She's foxy says:

    She’s coming across rather well.

    This soap opera has reached the stage where I’m beginning to sympathise with the underdogs – those who have fallen from grace and are now reviled by those who used to fawn over them.

  20. 37
    Choosy says:

    Sorry to be ungallant, but really I wouldn’t.

  21. 39
    UKIPMAN says:

    Becoming increasingly clear that it was New Labour who politically corrupted The Sun and other media. Before Blair there was much less collaboration/influence between the media and politicians.

    But don’t expect the BBC to mention that.

          Uh? says:

          1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

          2 The same was in the beginning with God.

          3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

          4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

          5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

          6 ¶ There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.

    Airey Belvoir says:

    I’m must reluctantly observe that Mrs Brooks is handling herself surprisingly well against the rather creepy Leveson QC. Dignified, with hints of good humour. He’s not cracking her at all.

  23. 49
    I fucking hate the bbc says:

    Smoking gun my arse

    Guardian sub-editor at work says:

    I see the “Seen Elsewhere” item has been amended from 2 Trillion to 2 Brillion.

    That’s all right then.

    su says:

    I love the stenographer next to Jay.
    Every now and then she smiles a knowing smile.

  26. 61
    Anonymous says:

    Jay is such an obvious lefty, they may as well dispense with his questioning and just put her on a ducking stool. If she drowns etc etc…. you know the rest. Also why was Jay allowed to say we better not say what word Mandelson used? This is meant to be a court of law Jay FFS, swear words (and, you know, the TRUTH) can be recounted in evidence. It would be revealing about the man’s character and the venom he had towards her and NI.

    Your Friendly Neighbourhood Crucible Casting Service says:

    Now we can get Diane Abbott to play Tituba, and Sam and Dave to play Good Wife and Good Man Proctor.

    The Salem witches were liars who hanged many with their lies.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”

What’s he been doing FFS, mining bitcoins?
