Piers Morgan Discussing Phone Hacking With Charlotte Church

Transcript of the footage of Piers Morgan speaking to Charlotte Church:

PM: “There was a spate of stories that came out because of mobile phones. When they first came out mobile phones journalists found out that if the celebrity hadn’t changed their pin code, right…”

CC: “Yeah, you can access their voicemail.”

PM: “You can access, access their voicemail. Just by tapping in a number. Are you really telling me that journalists aren’t going to do that? If they know they can ring up Charlotte Church’s mobile phone, listen to all her messages…”

CC: “My God”

PM: “Right, now all you have to do and I know it’s hard because celebrities don’t like doing anything for themselves is actually change your security number.”

CC: “Yeah, I’ve changed my security number”.

PM: “And now you don’t have to worry”.

CC: “Exactly”.

Just in case you have forgotten, Piers claims:

“I do not believe that any story we published … was ever gained in an unlawful manner, nor have I ever seen anything to suggest that.”

He told Leveson:

“… I had no reason or knowledge to believe it was going on.”

Uh oh…

    UKIP Can Win in Rotherham says:

    NEARLY three quarters of the people who took part in our poll said they would be voting for change in tomorrow’s Rotherham by-election.

    We asked our internet visitors whether recent events in the town had changed the way they were thinking of voting.

    Hundreds of you took part and currently 74% want to see political change.

    Just over 15say they will vote the way they always do, 2.5% say they are undecided 8.2% say they haven’t made up their minds who to vote for yet and the rest say they are undecided.

    UKIP Can Win in Rotherham says:

    It IS likely that Labour will win but watching you all leg it to Rotherham (where have all the Labour trolls gone I ask myself rhetorically) to try and buy votes gives one a certain satisfaction and just imagine if you lose.

    I’ll be crying with laughter for a week and the two Eds will be toast!

    Switching to Islam has many hidden advantages if you are already on benefit.

    One simple way is to take more than one wife, now although this is strictly speaking illegal here the state will pay benefit for the mutiple spouses albeit on a sliding scale.

    you may also qualify for a much larger house.

    More tips on the advantages of switching… You know it makes sense.

    How many jobs flagship gay marriage will create, Osborne? says:

    George Osborne challenged colleagues at yesterday’s Cabinet meeting to explain why they are not 100 per cent focused on getting the economy moving.
    Today Labour leader Ed Miliband said in the Commons: ‘They were at each other like rats in a sack.’

    In a sign of the Chancellor’s unease at the state of the economy ahead of his mini-Budget next week, he warned too many departments do not think they are responsible for jobs and growth.

    David Cameron also voiced his frustration during the weekly Cabinet meeting yesterday, complaining at slow progress in delivering major transport and broadband projects.

    You’re a liar, you smear UKIP because that’s what Labour do, you’re implying that they’ve toned down the colour of the black candidate to alleviate the ‘fears’ of the ‘closet racists’ in the party.

    You’re a member of a party full of convicted n onces, smearers and crooks, it would take centuries for UKIP to catch up with Labour on those charges.

    If Leveson doesn’t cite Piers Morgan’s evidence specifically, and mention how those who appe*ared at the hearings were all self-serving masters of mendacity, present company excluded of course, how can he expect that anyone will take the Report seriously, and that people like Piers should be regulated for their own as well as the public’s good? You’d think Brian would want to make some pretence at evenhandedness, just for look’s sake if for no other reason; “It’s mostly Rebekah Brooks, but let’s just throw in a few (dis)honourable mentions for good measure whilst we’re at it!”

    WhiteHat Geek says:

    Voicemail hacking is an OFCOM / TeleCommunications industry problem. The security protocol is inexcusably poor. If Piers can figure it out the hack, well… What he doesn’t mention to CC is that 4 digit codes are no real security either. Even if you change your voicemail PIN, it is still easy to compromise. Issue of how ex-directory numbers got into public domain has not been discussed at all. Crimes were committed, it was morally and ethically wrong, but it should not be a reason to compromise the liberty of the press.

    So, according to the vid, Morgan told Church about the voice-mail scam back in 2003 and she admitted to him that she had changed her pin code. They then agree that her voice-mail is safe from being hacked.

    So, what was she telling Leveson about having had her voice-mail hacked? Was she saying it happened more than NINE years ago? Not if her sworn testimony to Leveson is to be believed….

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.”
