Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Labour MP given 'substantial damages' after Sun accessed text messages | Media | guardian.co.uk

The Labour MP Siobhain McDonagh has accepted "very substantial damages" from News International, with the Sun admitting that it accessed text messages from her mobile phone after it was stolen, the high court has heard.

Details of the payout to McDonagh came on at a high court case management hearing relating to civil damages claims for voicemail interception on Monday, which heard that "hundreds" more victims may now take action against News International following allegations of a second significant phone-hacking operation at the now defunct News of the World.

The Sun, which was not accused of stealing McDonagh's phone, admitted that there was "serious wrongdoing and misuse of her private information and her mobile phone" and agreed to pay her damages and legal costs.

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