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.

      Here’s a tip Piers – go there and get on TV and night and day campaign against something seen as fundamental to their society. See how kindly they take to you. You would probably be lynched in the street. Pompous middle-class liberal twat.

      A little known boring fact says:

      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.

          It’s the constant fear he has that one of the hundreds of thousands of muzzbots he and his useless government brought into the UK to ‘enrich and add vibrancy’ to our society might, at any minute, slot him, his dismal wife and children.

        Please do not draw the line until those responsible for bankrupting so much of the NHS at the same time as destroying patient care have also been sacked, sued and barred from public office.

      A real jackpot says:

      What if Piers Morgan had to return to the UK to appear in court, and he happened to be in a window seat next to Gordon Brown when the window popped its fitting and the pair were sucked out to their deaths.

      The Malvinas should be returned to Argentina. The invisible magic pixie in the sky told me so.

      He also said what I do with little boys is fine by him, so long as I say three Hail Marys afterwards.

      So there.

      Ex-Labour voter says:

      If the despicable gobshite Andy Burnham had an ounce of self-respect, he would hang himself for what he allowed to happen, for allowing the slaughter of thousands of people. I’d like to know how this wretched little creep manages to sleep at night.

        (I don't need no doctor) says:

        He doesn’t hear the cries of those neglected at Stafford Hospital, and their relatives. How thick skinned are Burnham and Johnson? They are both a disgrace.

        Casual Observer says:

        Hanged in the sense of a tragic accident whilst engaging in some sort of sex game which involves a ligature, orange and enough time since time of death to allow decomposition to make the story stick.

        2 nights in Staffs should do the trick.

    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?


    • 94
      Casual Observer says:

      I don’t think you are totally off of the mark.

      It could also be a part political strategy of tension to keep those who need to be on their toes.

      Still waiting for some arrests on the Fernbridge / Yewtree front.


  30. 95
    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 .

      inside- out says:

      They nick you at 6am to undermine you.If you are aware of this tactic, and tell them any interview will be a no comment interview,the ball is back in your court.Its a game just play along.


    • 102
      not me your worship says:

      questioning can commence immediately even with someone not fully “with it ” then there are guidelines as to how to proceed a defence of a time delay in a frightening alien environment would surely now be the cry of a madman
