Miliband!? What does he have to do with it?

well he got up in PMQ's and laid into News International, Brooks and Cameron.

It's a desperate move by Don Rupert and the boys to repaint the story as party political so that the tories rally round the party and fight against Milliband, and hence protect the Murdoch gang. with tonights revelations, most tory mp'sd will be telling the party whips that if they even look like  supporting Murdoch they can say goodbye to any votes come the next election

I'll mention in passing that a long time ago I had a brief encounter with someone who lived next to a journo who worked for a famous tabloid.

There were a number of stories, not least of which was that it wasn't unusual for the journo to supply drugs to various informants who might feel a need for them, as long as they returned the favour with juicy information.

"Tip of the iceberg" was said, repeatedly.

So if a proper investigation happened, phone tapping might not even be the most significant offence.
