    There was a thing in Popbitch a few weeks ago hinting at this, and it seemed to imply it was almost STANDARD PRACTICE when interacting with the families of murder victims etc :confused:

    Oh yeah I missed the bit where it was Rebekah who handed over the phone.

    Well then she's thick as pig shit AND pure evil.

    She might be TORY SCUM, but that is actually QUITE FABULOUS.

    so now they're having anyone who attacks them on the hacking scandal TRACKED BY PRIVATE DETECTIVES?

    I shouldn't read this stuff when I'm eating, it just gives me indigestion.

    Good for Louise Mensch. If only all politicians were more willing to own up to their misdemeanours.

    Contacted by "journalists". Oh REALLY? :manson:

    The whole "attack NI, then we'll come and get you" approach has been well documented by Chris Bryant. I can't believe they're still at it.

    She did join the Labour Party in 1996 beacuse she saw Blair as "socially liberal but an economic Tory" (thanks wikipedia) actually but switched in 1997.

    I'm not entirely sure why we're celebrating someone who appears to have become an MP solely so that they can misuse Parliamentary privelege. Just because Lousie Mensch had a go at Murdoch and is female doesn't mean that she's not a stupid cunt.

    I think he's been made an example of, his fault is less upsetting Murdoch and more showing up the flakey security surrounding Westminster.

    I think it's right. He broke through parliament security and attacked a man during a hearing, in the most public way possible. A lesser sentence probably wouldn't deter other dicks from doing similar in the future.

    Apparently he wasn't expecting to get sent down, telling the press outside that he'd come and talk to them after the sentencing. Tee hee hee

    yeah I'm not a big fan of security abuse when it comes to things like parliament etc. I'm sure it's cool to be anti-establishment and everything but unfortunately we need rules to protect us from the REALLY stupid people.

    It's all been VERY BACKGROUND of late. Several arrests and that... Although I just heard that James Murdoch is going BACK in front of the select committee. Mainly because it's come out that HE KNEW ALL ABOUT IT.

    Story breaking tonight is that News International are offering Millie Dowler's family £2m in compensation with a further £1m paid to a charity for murder victims.

    If true then it sounds like News International are trying to make Millie Dowler's family feel like shit by offering what is an extraordinary amount of money. I'd imagine that will shut them up, even if they haven't been very vociferous to begin with.

    To me it makes News International sound even more like a bunch of twats.

    I wouldn't know what to say. I mean she was dead already, it's not like THEY killed her. I'm sure no amount of money could bring her back, but a lovely new house in the country and a trip round the world can't HURT.

    Also not exactly related but they pulled a sketch that Alec Baldwin did for last night's Emmy's from the show because it made fun of Murdoch and it was airing on Fox.

    Indeed. The family never sought publicity (and I mean that, I'm not being cynical). It looks like NI are shitting themselves about what may come next. Sarah Payne or Madeleine McCann perhaps. The former rather than the latter may well be their biggest payout since they ran with the story for many years and based many stories around the death of the little girl. And all, allegedly, based around stories the NOTW gained from stories based on phone hacking of her mum, Sara Payne.

    I saw that. Should be a bigger story (hacking a patient with terminal cancer!!), but I guess the fact it's Jade Goody makes it's value a little less...

    This time next year he could be looking at a 10 foot by 6 foot cell - hopefully.

    Do we have a separate thread about the Leveson enquiry?

    In any case, I'm loving it. Great line-up today too: Christopher Jefferies, British army intelligence officer man, Charlotte Church and Anne Diamond and Guido Fawkes summoned to appear Thursday for leaking a draft of Alastair Campbell's testimony. Some of the revelations about the tabloid press are just as sensational as their made-up stories.

    the stuff about Charlotte Church is disgusting. The papers are reporting it but not to the degree they would if a minor celebrity or politician had done something as equally as abhorrent. Because it was one of their own who leaked that story about her father they're playing it down as though it's not that big a deal, which is horrible. The media get away with far too much.

    Yes, I've just read the full Guardian live blog during her testimonial and it's pretty sad and outrageous that they would do some of the things they do. Some of it is to be expected and unfortunately if you're a privileged celebrity who makes money through the media it comes with the territory. However some of the things they do and did to her as a CHILD, not even an adult, are beyond the realms of acceptability.
