Thurlbeck’s Statement

Neville Thurlbeck comes out fighting:

“Following today’s announcement that I am to be charged in relation to Operation Weeting, I would like to thank my family and friends for their undying support during the past 15 months. My thanks also to my lawyer Henri Brandman for his wise and calm counsel during the police investigation.

I am most surprised and disappointed in the outcome. I have always operated under the strict guidance and advice of News International’s lawyers and under the instructions of the newspaper’s editors which will be abundantly clear when this matter comes to court.  I will vigorously fight to clear my reputation. Neither I nor my lawyer will be making any further comment at this stage.”

Coulson statement expected within the hour…

    Methinks a Nuremburg “only following orders” defence is coming.

    Yet another 1930’s Stalinist NOTW show trial where the really guilty hacks, police, public servants, and politicians are obvious by their absence.

Chris Bryant talks to the Times Diary about a famous gay actor:

“I don’t think I’ve had sex with him. He says we had sex in Clapham. I’m fairly certain I’ve never had sex south of the river”



Progressive Inclusion Champion says:

Great to hear Carswell call for inclusive policies and that UKIP must stand for first and second generation immigrants as much as the English.
