Trinity Mirror Email to Staff in Full

Dear all, 

We are providing James and Nick with legal support.
As you’re probably aware, James Scott the Editor of the People and his Deputy, Nick Buckley, were arrested this morning as part of Operation Weeting. The police are investigating allegations of phone hacking whilst they were on the Sunday Mirror during 2003 and 2004.

Tina Weaver a former Editor of the Sunday Mirror and Mark Thomas, another former employee were also arrested this morning.

We are cooperating with the police and I will keep you informed of any further relevant developments.

Police have left their offices with bags of evidence this afternoon…

    Huhne in prison, Macshane out of parliament, Sally being sued. All we need now is Piers Morgan and Mark Thompson arrested and sacked respectively and we’ll have hit the jackpot.

    It’s not available in English, only Arabic.

    The books you’re thinking of are translated interpretations, and not the Koran.

    When Allah decided to set his thoughts down on paper, he was pretty selective about the audience. Most of the human race were supposed to get stuffed.

    I’m going to sound like Blowing Whistles for this next comment:-

    Does anyone else think it’s strange that whenever Leveson has been discussed by the three Party leaders, Plod have been out making mass arrests for hacking? It’s happened a couple of times previously.

    Could it be the Common Purpose slime that bankrolled the Hacked Off campaign activating their “graduates/plants” in the Met management to “arrest the usual suspects” to emphasise the need for political control of the Press?

    Long John Silver's parrot changing into George Soros says:

    Good work Mr Plod .

    Now that they have been arrested have they been charged ?

    One thing that worries me a little is that after arresting them at 6.00am and getting them to the station at 7.00am and giving them breakfast at our expense the questioning does not often start before 10.00am at the earliest and often later .

    If you are not careful you will have some crafty brief arguing this time delay is used deliberately to undermine and weaken the witness in an alien and frightening environment .

    I myself think it a very silly argument but best in the interests of the taxpayer that you do not give anyone the chance to use it .

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
