Court Hears Piers Told Rebekah He Listened to Her Messages

The latest from the Old Bailey this afternoon, as legal adviser Ambi Sitham gives evidence:

The trial continues…


  1. 1
    (Not so)Dangerous Brian says:

    Mr Morgan, a hacker and even, possibly, a liar.
    Heaven forfend.

  2. 2
    wrthomson says:

    Bang him up Dano!

  3. 3
    F**k the LibLabCon says:

    We all knew the slimy bastardo was lying through his teeth.

  4. 4
    All the world says:

    the wicked witch and pierced organ – what a pair of plonkers

  5. 5
    green ink says:

    quelle suprise

  6. 6

    Would anyone agree with any of the following contentions?

    * Mark Thompson is a lying сunt.
    * Chris Patten is a blustering thug.
    * Piers Morgan is a chiselling crook.

    Answers on a postcard etc…

  7. 7
    The Duke says:

    Oh! watching the fall of Piers Moron is going to be deliciously enjoyable!

  8. 8
    Slyman Huge, Senior Cockroach says:

    Please send money: we’re financially as well as morally bankrupt.

  9. 9
    Jeremy Clarkson says:

    Always told you he was a complete cnut

  10. 10
    Mrs Pughe-Morgan says:

    He’s been a very, very naughty boy.

  11. 11
    Sir Mary Flappes says:

    I hear Brett Lee is going to bowl at Piers during the Perth test, as he has been gobbing off on twitter.
    This should be on the BBC so that all people in UK can see it. It should be before commencement of play and they should use the heaviest roller. On Piers.

  12. 12
    Penfold says:

    Oh dear, oh dear, that’s Piers banged to rights as a lying little shit.

    Now will the Yanks deport the little f**kwit.

  13. 13
    How DOES He Get Away With It says:

    That photo! Piss Poor looks like an aging pantomime dame, we all know he is a crook but amazing to see him looking like an old queen.

  14. 14
    Cinna says:

    Got him by the gonads!

  15. 15
    Celia says:

    I’ll have you know, Piers is a pretty straight sort of guy, it’s just that, well, you know, if you shake hands with him, make pretty sure you still have a hand and if you have, then count yourself lucky and just wipe the slime off.

  16. 16
  17. 17
    Toxic Labour for spongers, parasites, immigrants and criminals says:

    Everyone knew the Mirror was at it but as it was a Labour paper the fat bastard Twatson chose to ignore this.

  18. 18
    Piss Organ says:

  19. 19
    (Not so)Dangerous Brian says:

    Don’t need no postcard Mr Cat.

  20. 20
    (Not so)Dangerous Brian says:

    And, as it takes one to know one I rest my c**tish case!

  21. 21
    Youth of today says:

    What’s a postcard Cat?

  22. 22
    Jeremy Clarkson says:

    Have I ever denied that you cnut?

  23. 23

    Its what folk used to send before they discovered that the BBC was a vast pаedo factory.

  24. 24
    E. Blackadder says:

    Prick will get his comeuppance.

  25. 25

    Would you ever have wanted one with some bits missing?

  26. 26
  27. 27
    Dennis says:

    Or ‘circles’. One less tincture for me I think.

  28. 28
    Barak Obama says:

    Deport him, or shove him in Guantanamo and waterboard the little creep for the rest of his worthless life.

    Not that America detains people because of their political beliefs, etc etc.

  29. 29
    NSA says:

    They were considered to be insecure. A bit like sending an email.

  30. 30
    r supward says:

    of course he knew. they all knew, just like the bosses at the beeb knew about savile.

  31. 31
    Engineer says:

    My only slight disagreement is the description of Patten as a ‘thug’. Perhaps ‘pompous arrogant political failure with delusions of credibility’ might be nearer the mark.

    Note that his portfolio of sinecures does not include any in which he could really harm the nation by his lack of real ability. I’d imagine those making appointments were careful to keep him away from matters of national security or the national interest – after Hong Kong, anyway.

  32. 32
    SSC says:

    Both the Daily Mirror and the BBC knew about the hacking back in 1992 – Piers Morgan told Jeremy Paxman over lunch, according to Morgan;s biog.

  33. 33
    Engineer says:

    Couldn’t you find anything better Celia? After all, you had half the human race to choose from….

  34. 34
    Fishy says:

    Has Piers got any good share tips today? Any shares he is buying for himself, perhaps?

  35. 35
    RED ED - SON OF BROWN says:


  36. 36
    Thetan Lizard says:

    We have all our eyes on you.

  37. 37
    Gooey Blob says:

    Come now, if you looked anything like Watson would you not ignore mirrors too?

  38. 38
    Patten Back Tracks now that he is safely in Guardian Territory says:

    “A BBC Trust spokeswoman responded: “There was no legal threat – the letter merely suggested Mr Wilson might want to satisfy himself the recording was not defamatory, should he decide to release it. Lord Patten is quite clear that it is entirely for Mr Wilson to decide what he does with the recording,”

  39. 39
    Cracked Mirror. says:

    Nice one Becky!

  40. 40
    Anon. says:

    Was this said in court or is it BBC spin?

    Rebekah Brooks and Piers Morgan exchanged banter at a dinner party in 2003 about hacking each others’ messages, the Old Bailey has heard.

    There’s a difference,is the BBC telling the truth?

  41. 41
  42. 42
    Piers already got out of the wrong side of bed. says:

  43. 43
    Stable lad says:

    I bet she would like an 11% increase in hay rations.

  44. 44
    A pair of communist creeps says:

    The BBC are saying it was just banter! Typical criminal scumbaggery from the Brainwashing, Bullshitting Hunts!

  45. 45
    Non Tweeter says:

    What’s the point of tweeting when you only have a handful of followers?

  46. 46
    Stella sees Red and goes Stellar says:

  47. 47
    Derron Brown Tvrd. says:

    What a tvrd!

  48. 48
    And the Guardianistas took the bait hook, line and sinker. says:

    As could be easily predicted the Guardianistas immediately took faux offence and attacked Tom for all they were worth on the Twatter platform

    Sun political editor in Page 3 Twitter row over Labour MP’s choice of skirt

  49. 49
    Blowing Whistles says:

    The whole matter is in the Public Domain – it is a Public Controversy – therefore IT MUST now be brought before a properly conveined criminal court.

    Enough of the ‘one way street’ of justice for them lot. The ptb have only themselves to blame.

    Action is required – not b/s and rhetorical legal jargon [Spin] and endless enquiries kicking matters into the long grass.

    Open transparent and democratic action.

    constituency trainbound says:

    thats rich from a scumbag liar

  51. 51
    BBC says:

    He is no Nelson Mandela.

  52. 52
    lojolondon says:

    Morgan therefore mislead (lied) to MP’s during a commons hearing. Punishment should be swift and preferably fatal.

  53. 53
    Anonymous says:

    People use it as a reading list / memo type thing.

    If you think it’s about followers that exposes your non knowledge of the fairly decent 21c platform.

    Big deal – you don’t tweet

  54. 54
    Anonymous says:


    So Rebekah knew how to hack into peoples phones, knew hers had been hacked, yet still didn’t change her flipping code?

    What a dunderhead.

  55. 55
    Eric Holder, US Dept of Justice, says:

    Perish the thought.

  56. 56
    Old Blue Eyes says:

    Can I take it that Hacked Off will now be actively engaged in bringing Piers Morgan to justice and if proved that the Mirror were engaged in hacking will they do the honourable thing (as did Murdock) and close the Sunday Mirror.

  57. 57
    I hate socialists. says:

    Why do CNN keep on employing him. I thought that they had standards.

  58. 58
    Who's who says:

    Neither is Nelson Mandela.

  59. 59
    Those were the days my friend - but they ended d says:

    Men used to send them to their wives with the messge “Having a lovely time. Wish you were her”.

  60. 60
    Those were the days my friend - but they ended says:

    Regrettably, with one or two exceptions, no longer.

  61. 61
    They hate her because she won says:

    Who he?

    MandyPickleSniffer says:

    LibDems….what a joke they are. When Gordon Brown was in power they were seemingly staunchly anti-Labour. Then, thanks to electoral gerrymandering by Labour which meant that DC couldn’t get a majority despite winning a greater percentage of the votes than Blair did in his 2nd election, the slimy snake LibDems stumble into power as the coalition partners. And yet, the very second they do so they spend 100% of their time slagging off their new “partners”. They’re more anti-Tory and pro-Labour than ever. Every leaflet I get from the LibDems is devoted to either slagging off the Tories or boasting about having blocked this or that policy. What a bunch of ungrateful Huntswabs! Know your place, you loony incompetent twits! You didn’t win any electoral right to be such demanding prima-donnas. You don’t have the slightest chance of ever being in power in your own rights, and you’re squandering any chances you may have had of gaining any future seats by showing how totally useless you are as “partners”. Backstabbing losers. What exactly have you accomplished? Your key policies were AV referendum which nobody gave a rat’s monkey about, the Mansions Tax which is the most retarded and economically illiterate idea ever floated, and University tuition fees. You’ve either floated ideas that demonstrate a complete failure to grasp what the public really truly care about, or you’ve been involved in scandal after scandal showing how worthless you are as “leaders” (Laws, Huhne etc).
    And you have the audacity to brag and boast about how obstructive you’ve been & how many Tory policies you’ve blocked? Why doesn’t Cameron call a snap election so these useless two-faced LibDems can get a reality check on how few seats they would actually win and how totaly irrelevant they are in today’s political scene?

    Oh…and good post about Piers Morgan…He and Fat Bastard Twatson can sniff eachother’s brown eyes for all I care.
