Why is Bryant So Worried About Saddam Pants Picture?

bryant-saddam-pants

Last night during the Leveson debate Chris Bryant brought up the issue of how did Murdoch’s New York Post and Sun newspapers obtain the famous picture of Saddam in his pants?

Clearly they paid someone a bung. Is it evidence of systemic corruption? Not really, it was opportunistic and reputedly cost about as much as Bryant gets paid for his Indy column. Is Chris Bryant, a public servant, corrupted by being in the pay of an ex-KGB media mogul? Of course not. Is the prison guard, a public servant, any more corrupted being in the pay of a different media mogul?

Perhaps he has another motivation for feeling so much sympathy for a fellow politician humiliated in his underpants? Well, Chris?
