Cameron Presser – "No Stone Left Unturned" "Would Have Accepted Brooks' Resignation"

  • This scandal about more than one paper and goes to the heart of our media, police and politics. He said police investigations can only go so far, so there will be a full judge-led inquiry into the last police investigation. Apparently “no stone will be left unturned”.
  • Second inquiry this summer led by  independent industry figures looking at the culture, practices and ethics of the British press. PCC “ineffective and lacking in rigour  – need a new system that is independent of the press.
  • “We’ve all been in this together” – parties and papers have been in bed and this is a wake up call. “it’s on my watch that the music has stopped”.
  • No apology for hiring Coulson, said no one seriously questioned his ability to do the job “but the second chance didn’t work out”. Said he would have accepted Brooks resignation…

On the ropes during questioning:

  • Said he “commissioned a company to do a basic background check.”
  • Clearly dodged specific questions on what he had asked Coulson.
  • Repeated over and over that “he gave Coulson a second chance.”
  • Still “friends” with Coulson but conceded he didn’t ask what else there was to come.
  • Brought prospect of James Murdoch being questioned by the police “the statement yesterday leads to all sorts of questions that need to be answered”
  • Dismissed Guardian suggestion that he was warned with any “actual information”

No apology, even when pushed hard.
