Just...

...are there even words? Any day now someone's going to discover a detachable twirly 'tache of evil in the old Screws offices.

Or, more likely, an email indicating that such an item has been bought.

"Inappropriate" seems like a bit of an understatement.

And now tis the turn of the Scum. Five of the paper's most senior hacks have just been arrested for bribing coppers.

The role of honour bist: Geoff Webster (Deputy Editor), John Edwards (Picture Editor), John Kay (Chief Reporter), Nick Parker (Chief Foreign Correspondent) and John Sturgis (a reporter).

OK, lets make sure that an unbiased, transparent investigation takes place, holds people to account, and delivers fair justice to the letter of the law.
Lets hope the result is not yet more laws restricting press freedom, regulations and state censorship of freedom of expression that we all have a right to. The Idea of the  state not being seperate from the press is inherently totalitarian. We already have enough laws to cover what has happened, everything is already illegal,  we do not ones specifically targeting journos. If government regulation goes ahead, the next cabinet minister to put their hand in the till or something else inside someone else will try to stop the story, you mark my words.  The right to privacy is precious but not infinite
Lets hope the result of this is a better News International, not NO news international.

And if the Sun has to close the Daily Mirror (who also hacked phones and promoted prejudiced attitudes to other sections of society) deserves to go down with it, in order to restore political balance to the red-top market...
It all rests on Heather Mills and Piers Morgan. One of them must be lying, and even more amazingly, one must be telling the Truth.

No. I'm against that. I don't want anybody who ever worked for Murdoch in any capacity disintegrated.

And another huge bomb went off today. The man at the centre of the blast was the Hulture Secretary. But he wasn't the only one. This, you see, looks rather bad:

The Times is reporting that David Cameron text Rebekah Brookes telling her to "Keep her head up!" after she resigned.

He also told her that "Ed Miliband's got me on the run."
