Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Phone-hacking: Murdochs and Rebekah Brooks face MPs - live | Politics | guardian.co.uk
5.31pm: The protest against Rupert Murdoch seems to have completely backfired, Paul Owen writes. It has transformed Murdoch into a sympathetic figure, an old man under attack from a young one, and may have contributed to the committee's decision to allow Murdoch to read his lengthy statement in full. He ended the session having the last word, able to express his contrition to the country. The headlines tonight and tomorrow may well be about the attack on Murdoch rather than the complex and detailed issues that were discussed in the session itself.

No Rupert

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
