Why Did Hugh Grant Lobby Politicians to Gag the Press?

    Is it any of our business if an actor has a child our of wedlock?

  6. 6
    Bob says:

    Writing up cheap sex scandals involving people’s private lives has nothihg to do with a free press

    Just scurrilous and sordid invasion of privacy

    I suppose you agree with hacking, blagging, extortion and bribery on an industrial scale like Murdoch’s papers…

  7. 7
    Inamn says:

    But should the press be free to expose people’s private lives? Is it of any interest to any of us if someone has had a child?

  8. 8
    Sunday Mirror says:

    Hacking is disgraceful.

  9. 9
    Lord Carrington's Binoculars says:

    Why wouldn’t he? He was after all the editor of a red top tabloid.

    If you’ve got nothing to hide you’ve got nothing to fear.

  10. 10

    Bet she is feeling battered.

  11. 11
    janus says:

    absolutely correct.

    The other issue is Murdoch s use of these secret files on politicians to cower the political class (or anyone else he chooses to attack). The result is even the police are in his grip.

    He wants to live a private life, I agree with him, so I won’t watch or buy any video’s/newspapers with him in them.

    Is it because he formed the delusion that they were run by vindictive little shits?

    NSA/GCHQ says:

    We must disagree

    We are bugging all your commications

    When it is illegal for GCHQ to do it in the UK

    We allow NSA to do it

    And GCHQ does it where it is illegal for NSA

    Nice system don’t you think?

    Global illegality in a nutshell

  21. 21
    celebrity and sun stories go together says:

    Grant puts himself on the pedestal by being involved with hacked-off. Before that he used the media for self promotion and promotion of his girl friend.

    Putting that to one side, the press have always had a tradition of using celebrities for their story telling and the celebrities have used the media to promote themselves.

    What came first the celebrity or the media story telling. They go together.

    Us the readers, the tittle tattle, plebs, the payers of both, can have it both. The moralizers have to ignore one side. Without the Sun or others Grant would only be a minimal pay actor; all actors would be and without the status.

  22. 22
    Jack says:

    It happens to be illegal

    Or don’t people like you give a fuck about criminal behaviour?

  23. 23
    Jack says:

    Vindictive little shits making money by illegal hacking

  24. 24
    Hugh Grant says:

    Disgraceful. Obviously, the only solution to this outrage is to muzzle the free press and place them under the control of the government, or preferably the BBC.

  25. 25
    Jack says:

    The solution is for the tabloid press to respect the law of the land

    And not be part of the criminal class

  26. 26
    Never me honest gov says:

    I think ….. story telling

    Since 2005 UK productivity has barely moved. Sorry but Balls was at the heart of this statistical reality. Resolve and everyone can gain, barring Luddites and self interest. He, Balls,Brown,Miliband have in government and opposing have suggested nothing much.

    Balls is a clever commentator of economics. Politically no thank you.

    It seems strange that the Prime Minister has his former Chief of Communication and two of his

    closest friends in the dock at the Old Bailey without the whole country calling for him to resign

    Not really. New Labour set the precedent for shamelessness in the face of scandal during those memorably wretched years 1997 to 2010 and Cameron is after all the Heir to Blair.

    So the political class is now criminalised like the London bankers and Press?

    And the Met?

    How deep does this all go?

    Is Britain a criminalised society now?

  46. 46
    Birth Announcements Page says:

    The proper place with Hugh Grant to announce his and partners new arrival is in telegraphs Baby Arrival column not a big splash on the front page of the sun. It only costs a few pennies.

  47. 47
    Pap says:

    Why can’t Guido get a proper scoop

    Of Tony and Wendi in Ugandan situation like?

    On the froht page, of course

  48. 48
    Agree to disagree says:

    Does Grant support M(s) Coopers general politics and agrees with her recent announcement highlighted in this blog? or does he differ.

  49. 49

    I still think that whilst the hacking was and is morally wrong, these celebs and others were bloody stupid not to change their default bloody passwords. It’s like saying theft by breaking and entering when the door was left wide open.

  50. 50
    Resident tax status says:

    Grant must have a large income and investment portfolio? Is he domiciled in the UK for tax purposes? A fair point that shall be answered as he has sought to very directly influence law making.

  51. 51
    Hugh Grant throwing stones in his glass house says:

    Of no interest at all. The Press must only write nice things about me. My Bank account depends on me being in the press 24/7.

    Yeah sockpuppet, how do you purport to know so much about Murdoch? Either you’ve hacked his personal communications or you’re talking out of your arse.

  58. 58
    M­a­­q­bo­­ul says:

    We’ll never know if he and his drug and sex addicted fellow thespians manage to gag our investigative free press.

  59. 59
    Should try condoms some time says:

    Outside were two police officers. They were on a routine patrol in the red light district of the Strip. Their attention had been drawn to the BMW because the brake lights kept flashing “on and off” … “on/off” … “on/off “…

    The driver, you see, kept pushing his foot down on the brake pedal during his illicit tryst with the prostitute. “I guess he was having a really good time,” she says. The prostitute in question was Divine Brown and the foot belonged to Hugh Grant.

  60. 60

    So very true, usually involving child @buse. Look to politicians like Hague, Brittan, Bottomley (both fuckers) who are well known to be in the control of both mad Murdoch and the security services because of videos and photos of them basically balls deep in some poor nine year old.

  61. 61
    Ellie-Mae (9) says:

    Don’t buy the paper if you don’t want to read about it.

    nell says:

    There’s him and his leftwing rich friends wanting to gag our press so that their less than commendable behaviour can be kept from public view and then there’s the leftwing / green environment agency pouring £millions into flooding areas for ‘nature reserves’ whilst letting villages stay flooded because they’ve no money left for dredging dikes and rivers.

    It really is time to oust these leftwing idiots from their seats of influence.

    Mr Potato Head2 says:

    The last thing these celebrities want is privacy. They want as much exposure to further their careers as they can get. What they really want is the ability to manipulate the press so only the good bits get included.

  74. 74

    Especially when, like Grant, they have had their chips.

  75. 75
    White rabbit says:

    Whenever I see a photo of his phizog I immediately think of watches the size of dinner plates and micro-bacterial infections which can’t be treated by modern antibiotics. And a fraud. And an escort agency. And a ford cortina standing on jacks at the side of the road. Ok I didn’t mean the anti-bacterial bit…. I meant scurvy.

    Defactos says:

    It wasn’t called hacking then and it wasn’t called voicemail.

    There was no hacking involved anyway.

    They simply dialed the celeb and if the celeb didn’t answer it went to answer phone and they could then listen to messages on it. Sometimes a celeb may have even selected the PIN option but 9 times out of 10 left it on manufacturer’s default.

    Trying to apply present day terms and technology is disingenuous.

    Dontvoteforanyofthem says:

    Funny how so many people were called lunatic tinfoil hat wearing conspiracy nutters for suggesting what Snowden has confirmed.

    As for a free-press and all the hacking… When some ego filled third rate actor, with almost no actual skill, appoints themselves as moral arbiter of truth and seeks to muzzle the press and end 300 years of essential press freedom, purely to prevent their own immorality being reported, then the press have every right to put them under the microscope.

    Also, I wonder when Hacked Off and the BBC and the other self righteous, self appointed hypocritical moral arbiters who set themselves up to attack the free press, will start calling for the Daily and Sunday Mirror to be closed down for their part in hacking?

    Or is it only distasteful when a Murdoch rag does it?

    I agree that an actor’s private life should be private, but Hugh Grant is a political activist for campaigning for the ersosion of freedom of speach

    Squeaker Bercow says:

    Records showing the Prime Minister is a distant cousin of pub landlord comic Al Murray have turned up after millions of files detailing Britain’s history in India were put online.

    Around 2.5 million files from the India Office, dating from 1698 to 1947 and including wills and wedding certificates, have been made available.

    They include files about John Talbot Shakespear, a senior civil servant in the East India Company, and David Cameron’s great-great-great-great-grandfather.

    He was also the uncle of Vanity Fair author William Makepeace Thackeray, who is Murray’s great-great-great-grandfather – making the pair distant cousins.

    He’s doing a Mandelsnake. Look after the feral overclass while pretending to help the poor. The poor pay £63, 000 but the rich pay for million pound houses.

    Check, check, check. says:

    Except this actor choses to make his private life public to enhance his flagging career. Once on this path he really can not dictate that the press must only print nice wallet enhancing things about him.

    Grant made his bed and now he must lie in it.

    I mean to say Huw Grant is no spring chicken.

    He must be at least 55.

    Just think when this child of his goes to University he will be getting his pension. What use as a father will he be then I ask ?

    Men should be banned from having children after a certain age I say.

    It is simply not fair . Imagine if you are a twenty year old girl bringing a boyfriend home to meet your Dad for the first time. He will say ” I have met your Grandad now where’s your Dad ?”

    Malcolm Muggeridge says:

    In these days when we have opened the way to same sex marriage and the adoption of children within these relationships may I just flag up another interesting point.

    A girl grows up in a homosexual household in which concepts of self and self importance and expression are accentuated.

    When the girl is grown up what effect will her parentage have upon her ability to form a long term relationship. Will a heterosexual male be able to come to terms with this?

    Alternatively will the girl only be capable of forming a same sex relationship herself and if so how will this effect her ability procreate.

    Are we about to start a new job description: “full time male sperm donor required”.

    We are truly living in fascinating times.

Quite right Cameron should certainly apologise AFTER Labour have apologised for the mess they made of government in the years 1997 -2010; waging illegal war ;under resourciing our armed forces ; allowing uncontrolled mass immigration and busting the economy…when they do THAT then Cameron can apologise but until they do the opportunistic and htpocritcal Labour Party can……..fuck off !!!

    It’s quite simple
    I want to fuck around that’s all
    But because I’m a sleb, I don’t want my fucking around to damage my income, yah?
    I just need to control the press a little so I can fuck around and keep my millions flooding in
    and if I have to fuck freedoms that have been around since the end of the Roman occupation, I will do it

    in a nutshell. The word ‘hacking’ is overused in this case. No hacking went on, as you pointed out it was just someone getting lucky with accessing the voice mail on the default PIN.
    Of course using the word ‘hacking’ allows the celebs to paint a picture of intelligence about themselves.

    They came for the Press, and then they will want the 'net says:

    Hegalian dislectic, yet again.

    Give the people the idea that their phones are going to be hacked and their privates lives are going to be exposed in the papers, brainwash them into demanding the muzzling of the press, Hey Presto! pieces of shit like Blair get carte blanche to do whatever they like, without the public knowing wtf is going on, because utter wankers like Grant don’t want people knowing they use skanky crack whores and that he splashes his seed up any old slapper, churning out kids he doesn’t raise himself.

    People who demand, crave and actively seek the attention of the public for the good of their ‘careers’, scum like politicians and luvvey actors, cannot complain when they get said attention.

    Also, if a politician cannot keep their marriage vows, is willing to lie to and deceive the very one he/she swore to God they would forsake all others for, for the sake of a bit of fresh, is there not just the slightest possibilty that they might, just maybe, consider lying to the electorate for numerous selfish reasons.

    These cretinous ‘ celebrities ‘ seem to think that they are entitled to turn the publicity tap on and off as they see fit , and have the audacity to attempt to curb our free press for their own ends.

    Mother K*lly's doorstep says:

    I think those 2 Swedish slappers have still not made a formal complaint to the police there. Assange’s fear is not that he won’t get a fair trial on this jumped up (non-existent) assault charge, it is that he does not trust the Swedish thuggery not to put him on the first plane to America (even if he doesn’t have a visa – which is something else the Blanks will then be able to charge him with!) They are fairly thick and not very forgiving as a nation, so don’t endanger your life by even contemplating visiting the place.

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
