Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I still think that between the Savile scandal, the hacking scandal, and the Tory paedophile/murderer scandal there's a not-so covert media war happening between the horrible people on Team Tabloid and the equally horrible people on Team Westminster - with various previous and current horrible people on Team BBC caught in the middle.

True motivations and likely outcomes remain opaque to me. But I wonder if Team Tabloid are hinting at further revelations to put pressure on Team Westminster to pull Leveson's teeth and let Rebekah and Coulson etc off the hook - never mind avoiding further action against possible interviewees higher up the food chain.

I continue to be bemused that the whole mess is in danger of spinning (sic) out of control from its own momentum, and that - if we're lucky - Team Tabloid and Team Westminster will take each other down, possibly doing serious damage to Team Royal, Team Plod, Team City and perhaps even Team Millbank along the way.


Interesting times. (I know I keep saying that, but it happens to be true.)
