here

I was going to add comment to the other thread I started here at the beginning of the inquiry but purely for the comedy value alone, I felt this warranted it's own, shiney new thread. The above isn't word for word, just the guardian blog, but there are some crackers in there, and I haven't even got to the end.

Did you know, criticism of the Daily Mail stems from a lack of understanding on how journalism works? Next time you see a thread on here quoting the Daily Mail, just remember, we just don't understand how journalism works. Feast your eyes on the pearls of wisdom dished out by the one and only Mr Dacre, and enjoy...

Really gets my goat when you hear some of these people saying it's ridiculous for people to think there is a grand conspiracy....

Right or wrong people think for fairly clear reasons.... cosy relations between PM and Rebecca Brooks, Andy Coulson as press secretary, senior met officers cosy relations with NI, complete failure to investigate hacking claims... it just goes on and on and bloody on !

Yikes, what channel are you guys on?

I'm more than a week behind on the website streaming but I'd like to catch some of today live without breaking the internet - think the site was struggling a bit earlier!

(And my first try at that sentence read "I'd like to catch toady live..." grin)

Thanks, MrGin. But also Darn, was hoping it was on a TV channel so I could live-pause as convenient.

I dunno, imagine having to actually, you know, watch stuff live. Don't know how we ever coped...

Another one arrested this morning under Operation Weeting.

And Glenn Mulcaire losing his appeal at the Supreme Court yesterday against revealing just who at NI paid him to spy on people.

He's thinking of going to the European Court of Human Rights. Hilarious that NI expect clueless Brussels judges to ride to their rescue.

Two NHS employees arrested in Somerset this morning by police investigating inappropriate payments to public officials.

I wonder which poor sod has had his or her medical records stolen by the papers this time?

I don't mean the European Court is necessarily clueless btw

I imagine they will be professional enough to put all the trashings in our press aside when it comes to considering Mulcaire's case grin

Revived his thread in the light of this

I do not understand why no police officer is facing criminal charges or severe disciplinary procedures over the bungling of the Milly Dowler investigation which led to her and her family being smeared and the deaths and injuries of other girls.

That's for police work that was incompetently done. It's aside from individual officers' arrangements with NI and other newsgroups which should be subject to other proceedings.

The Surrey Force had the cheek to try to cloak itself in glory after the conviction of Levi Bellfield when the lazy bastards should hang their heads in shame.

Thought I'd revive this as the report is due next week. Waiting with anticipation.

And Dacre given a thorough kicking by Leveson, I'm glad to see.
