JM has got a really annoying voice. I can't work out whether he's irritated he's at the inquiry or just a bit thick.

non-stop corporate bollock speak does that - impossible to emote when talking that shyte.

i would love for some to drop him a tab, see him loosen up and see what happens then.

i reckon he is holding some serious secrets for future power games.

Entertaining stuff, this report.

(from the guardian):

‎"Philip Davies says it is not only way over the top, but completely ludicrous, to say that Rupert Murdoch is not fit to run a major international company.

"We all make mistakes, we all wish we'd done things differently," he says."

That's him admitting he shouldn't've been a Tory, then?

it wasn't a tab, but he wasn't as wild and crazy as you'd think, and this was back when he was 21-22

although I guess now with all the money sitting around him he could really afford to be wild and crazy

On her relationship with News Corporation executive chairman Rupert Murdoch, she said "in the main, on the big issues we had similar views" but they disagreed over issues including the environment, immigration and font size.

Perverting the course of justice is a serious crime. It has to be tried in the Crown Court before a jury and can, in theory, lead to a life sentence.

If can't do the time, don't do the crime.

Holy shit. Yeah wondering if some of the charges are linked to this mysterious laptops-in-bins thing, which was never really followed up.

Shocking apologism from ITN at the moment - "it's not murder, it's not rape -it's sometimes difficult to believe that all this is about accessing voice messages", "if they're cleared, there will be a reckoning"....

Imagine finding Rebekah Brooks dead in her cell. The trauma! Why, I would wish to compensate the officer £10,000. I repeat, £10,000.

A total of eight out of the 13 people arrested on suspicion of phone hacking will face charges.

A further three people on police bail over hacking allegations have not been charged. The decision relating to two others has been deferred, the CPS has said.

The eight individuals to face charges are: Rebekah Brooks, Andy Coulson, Stuart Kuttner, Glenn Mulcaire, Greg Miskew, Ian Edmondson, Neville Thurlbeck and James Weatherup.
