Mensch Reports Business Partner Luke Bozier to Police

Louise Mensch has reported her former Menshn business partner Luke Bozier to the police after hackers posted the contents of his email account on-line, including nude pictures of himself and his attempts to search for sex from “young girls”. Apparently he loves “Brazilian teens so much. It’s almost worth flying all the way to Rio to get some jailbait action.”

Tech-blog The Kernel broke the story this afternoon and the entire dossier is still online. Regular readers will remember David Cameron welcoming Bozier to the Tories when he defected from Labour in January of this year. He even quoted the former Blair staffer’s statement during PMQs.

One almighty cock-up… 

I’m a Celebrity, Can I Have a Photo Please?

Full Statement from King Edward VII’s Hospital

It is with very deep sadness that we confirm the tragic death of a member of our nursing staff, Jacintha Saldanha. 

Jacintha has worked at the King Edward VII’s Hospital for more than four years. She was an excellent nurse and well-respected and popular with all of her colleagues. 

We can confirm that Jacintha was recently the victim of a hoax call to the hospital. The hospital had been supporting her throughout this difficult time. 

John Lofthouse, Chief Executive at King Edward VII’s Hospital, says: “Our thoughts and deepest sympathies at this time are with her family and friends. Everyone is shocked by the loss of a much loved and valued colleague.” 

Lord Glenarthur, Chairman of King Edward VII’s Hospital, says, “This is a tragic event. Jacintha was a first class nurse who cared diligently for hundreds of patients during her time with us. She will be greatly missed.”

UPDATE: St James’s Palace:

“Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are deeply saddened to learn of death of Jacintha Saldanha. Both their Royal Highnesses were looked after so wonderfully well by everyone at King Edward VII’s Hospital. Their thoughts and prayers with her family, friends and colleagues at this hard time.”

Leveson Demands Laws to ‘Civilise’ the Internet Brian Speaks Down Under

levFresh off the plane to Sydney, jet-setting Lord Justice Leveson has wasted no time in having a pop at the internet on tour down under. His withering and rather unfortunately timed moan ended up almost as a Leveson Report 2.0:

“I am watching developments in the UK with interest. I treat the report as a judgment and judges simply do not enter into discussion about judgments they have given. They do not respond to comment, however misconceived, neither do they seek to correct error. The established media broadly conforms to the law and, when they do not, they are potentially liable under the law. In so far as the internet is concerned, there has been, and for many, there remains a perception that actions do not have legal consequences. There is not only a danger of trial by Twitter, but also of an unending punishment, and no prospect of rehabilitation, by Google. Just as it took time for the wilder excesses of the early penny press to be civilised, it will take time to civilise the internet. The internet does not trade in gossip. It simply publishes it online, conveys it on Facebook, uploads it onto Youtube, tweets and re-tweets it. It is likely that new legal norms and new laws will need to be developed.”

Now who was it that broke the Max Clifford story?

Quote of the Day

Lord Leveson tells Sydney…

“Bloggers rejoice in placing their servers outside the jurisdiction where different laws apply.”
