      I’m glad to see that the Guardian is still being subsidise through public money paying for adverts for public sector jobs – thank you David Cameron.

      Lot of chickens coming home to roost and mostly they are highlighting corruption in the higher echelons of once-respected organisations. Revolution cannot be far away. lol

      Not anything like as pathetic as your failing show on CNN, eh Mr Piers Stefan Pughe-Morgan??

    We’re all bored with phone hacking now.
    Lets focus on something else.

    Now, now, Guido, you know only those nasty papers owned by the Murdochs would ever do such terrible things.

    How dare anybody point fingers elsewhere, that wasn’t the aim of the hysteria whipped up by certain politicians and their propaganda slaves in certain sections of the media at all.

      The law of unintended consequences, the circular firing squad again, and Oh! what a tangled web they weave when once they practice to deceive.

        It is fantastic that the hysteria, caused by Milliband and co demanding enquiries every 5 minutes, is now seeping into every area. Hopefully the labour mps blagging thousands a year from the rent scam will all beexposed.

      Of course he looked disloyal. It’s because he is disloyal. Did you expect anything else from a politician?

    Piers will not even get to start his job in New York.

    I bet.

      Me and my bros did a song about it once:

      “Doo, doo, doo, doo, steppin’ aside, steppin’ aside”

      It must be the acceptable way of being sacked, but nobody will realise until charges are made. Then the Beeb (sorry,! i mean the organisation ) can appear to have distanced itself “ages ago”.

      It’s a euphemism for continuing to be paid whilst hiding until the fuss has blown over.

    My position is becoming more untenable by the day.

    Who are these three foreigners ?

    I bet they do not live in the UK .

    Perhaps they pay their taxes here .

    All this phone hacking business is ancient history.

      And we are desperately – but unsucessfully – trying to draw a line and move on, in the same way that our master T Bliar always tried to do…..

    Difficult for BBC this – opportunity to divert attention from themselves but have to change hacking narrative to do so – ha ha ha ha

    Westminster Gossip says:

    Is there no integrity left in the mainstream media? This issue should come alive in the US media where Morgan is a star…

    Panorama said it had failed to find evidence of a “BBC cover-up” over the Newsnight decision.

    Its right hand has cleared its left hand of any wrongdoing.

    That is that then.

    Goodnight children, everywhere.

    Come on Tom Watson, get an attack commitee going, get yourself constantly on BBC TV and put this Labour-supporting paper out of business. You know it’s only fair!

    Baron Hogwash says:

    This is not right, how can anyone think such things of The Mirror and Piers. I hope that Tomwato, Milliband, Chrissy Bryant will not be shouting from roof tops for an inquiry, o lordy a public inquiry.

Cathy Jamieson MP, Labour’s Shadow Treasury minister, commenting on Treasury analysis of the economic impact of tax changes…

“If the Treasury is looking at the economic impact of tax changes, then surely it should examine the impact of the rise in VAT and cuts to tax credits? George Osborne’s £12 billion VAT rise knocked confidence, helped to choke off the recovery and has cost families £1,350 over the last three years.”
