Evans Charged with Hacking While at Mirror

Dan Evans is being described almost universally as a “former News of the World journalist” following the CPS’ decision to charge him with phone hacking this morning. Which is true, if slightly misleading. To what time period does that first hacking charge relate?

Charge 1:

Between 28 February 2003 and 1 January 2005, conspired with others to intercept communications in the course of their transmission, without lawful authority, namely the voicemail messages of well-known people and those associated with them. 

Between 2003 and 2005 Evans was not working at the Screws, but at the Sunday Mirror. Who have always denied hacking ever happened…

    Dunno nuffink, innit, like!

    The public says:

    Oh dear, another thread relating solely to the inbred media mob. Normal human beings don’t care about this stuff you know. We’ve always known journalists are the lowest of the low. Along with politicians and lawyers…

      And in other news.. says:

      Speaking of the media mob, over on the BBC:

      “Half of school districts face places crunch. Almost half of England’s school districts will have more primary pupils than places within two years, the Local Government Association (LGA) has said.

      “Rising birth rates began the squeeze but uncertainty over funds has made it worse, the LGA says.”

      Explanation: savage Tory cuts. Shhh.. don’t mention immigration.. Shhhh

      Truth seeker says:

      Without ‘the lowest of the low’, as you call them, we would never have known about the MP’s expenses scandal. I suppose you exclude all BBC and Guardian journalists from this definition, by the way? Leveson was Labour, the BBC and Guardian acting in tandem to crucify the right-wing press. Guido is merely correcting the left-wing propaganda that all criminal activity was carried out by right-wing newspapers.

      “Between 2003 and 2005 Evans was not working at the Screws, but at the Sunday Mirror.” maybe that was why the Screws employed him for his various skills

      Now, yes, the silence of Hugh Grant is puzzling. Because as is well-known, he gave that Divine Brown a right mouthful. Wonder if he ever did the same for Gordon Brown? Ah. Now I made myself feel a bit nauseated.

    Right on Guido

    Give the others a good smearing..they are just as guilty…

    Because we are going to tazke it on the head when all our shit comes out in Court

    I hate England

    Larry the Cat Burglar says:

    Everyone know that phone hacking was not exclusive to news International.

    It is completely baffling why the left wing media Mafia headed by the BBC do not seem interested in pursuing any organisation which is not owned by Rupert.

    I think we need to draw a thick red line under all this hacking malarky.

      Yes, I think that is a good idea, until I see it advantageous to change my mind, and then demand a rethink.

      excuse me, er excuse me says:

      to elaborate, There is no-one capable to Judge in the entire country, everyone, in every profession is bent. I did have hopes for the Clergy but look at all the perversions, unfortunately not suitable anymore. That doesn’t mean to say that I do not think that it is possible to have a person who is fair in all things and not interested in personal gain ( I have myself as an example and so I know that it is possible, it is just that I know what I had to go through to attain this equanimity )

      excuse me, er excuse me says:

      that is a dark path to go down. I have looked there. I know that the governments will lie, even set up whole enterprises of misinformation. The trouble is when you start thinking along those lines you look back in history and you think to yourself, ” well if they lied about that, what else did they lie about ?”
      Blair with his stupidly transparent lie has opened the entire can of worms and is not fit to take the “world stage” let alone be given money for his deceits.

    Nice one mate. Thanks.

    Careful you don’t mention all the other charges by mistake.

    The unintended consequences of Levenson et al.

    Now, if we can only get someone at the Grauniad in the frame, or better still, framed.

    And with Voda avoiding lots of tax take by using the same methodology as The Guardian Media Group, lets hope the left bite and we can have a field day over hypocrisy.

    Jesse Norman says:

    Thank you for referencing my article Guido

    It only took us 10 years to realise that Blair is the Kiss of Death

    But it is better to have a blinding flash of the obvious 10 years late than never

    PS Dave agrees with me…

      I thought Murdoch was the Kiss of Death for Dave, Jesse

    You mean over there in Englandshire they actually listen to other peoples telephone calls!!! – Disgusting.

    John Prescott says:

    It is for that reason being so that my son in not so arguably a legitimate but important and therefore good reason to be as he is standing for the parliament of that which is being I a member for many years to carry on that is the great legacy of the party to which I am loyal and proudly so for that number of years which can however be not the most important but even so rather important reason that it is ok for my son to stand and that is thus therefore.

    Talking about the BBC again Guido

    What happened to this BBC tax scandal?

    Only a little “£117 MILLION” involved…

    You’ve had you fun phone hacking, but you’ve been rumbled.

    With us, it’s a full time job. Now behave yourself.

    Tay King-dePisse says:

    Isn’t it the establishment media’s whole point that he committed TWO different crimes at two different times– voicemail hacking AND working for the Screws?

    Elveden are refusing to investigate my complaint that a one-time Fleet Street editor despite my providing them with a letter from the editor to the PCC in which he admits receiving information from the Met police in circumstances which can only be illegal.
