Madam Popbitch muses:
“Senior Met Police figures like Yates and Hayman were keeping News of the World editor Colin Myler in the loop on police action. Gordon Brown was keeping Rebekah Brooks in the loop about the Media Select Committee action. Tony Blair was advising Brooks. All of which puts two thoughts in our heads.
1. Wonder what gave News of the World any impression they might be a bit above the law?
2. Good job that the 5million pound public inquiry set up to look at all this just focused on the role of the media, rather than politicians and press, eh?”
