Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I'll mention in passing that a long time ago I had a brief encounter with someone who lived next to a journo who worked for a famous tabloid.

There were a number of stories, not least of which was that it wasn't unusual for the journo to supply drugs to various informants who might feel a need for them, as long as they returned the favour with juicy information.

"Tip of the iceberg" was said, repeatedly.

So if a proper investigation happened, phone tapping might not even be the most significant offence.
