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. 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…

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

      Don’t need no postcard Mr Cat.

      What’s a postcard Cat?

      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.


  6. 7
    The Duke says:

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


  7. 9
    Jeremy Clarkson says:

    Always told you he was a complete cnut


  8. 10
    Mrs Pughe-Morgan says:

    He’s been a very, very naughty boy.


  9. 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.


  10. 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.

      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.


  11. 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.


  12. 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.

    The madness in legal circley spreads still further:

    r supward says:

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


  17. 34
    Fishy says:

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

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

      Non Tweeter says:

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


      • 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


  19. 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,”

      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.

    Nice one Becky!

    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?


  22. 44
    A pair of communist creeps says:

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

    Derron Brown Tvrd. says:

    What a tvrd!

    lojolondon says:

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


  26. 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.


  27. 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.

    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.
