Murdoch to be Questioned by Police for Corporate Phone Hacking Charges

The British Press is now in a spin because they allege £100 million has been spent with the main defendant, Rebekah Brooks, being found not guilty on all charges.

This figure is totally confected, but I cannot reveal more till the full verdicts are in

 I happen to think this is justice, because the evidence was lacking (for various reasons) in her criminal case. The jury had be to 'sure she must have known' about phone hacking during the 3 years of her editorship of News of the World. They weren't. Though given the Milly Dowler story was written containing her voicemails, and Glenn Mulcaire was paid $150k per annum, there's little doubt as a competent editor she 'should' have known.

I hadn't decided if I was going to put it up here at that point. (This is a slightly updated version with a couple of glaring spelling mistakes hopefully fixed and extra detail added).

Its entirely put up with my permission (apart from anything else i needed someone who has seen the still existent press testrictions to tell me if i was breaking any)

And if i hadnt got tied up in looking at something ekse i'd have got off my arse & told him where to link to. The lsck of link is entirely my fault
