Rebekah Still Doesn’t Get It 99


The continuing hubris of the News International lot is really quite astonishing. These people do not seem to have realised they no longer have the world in their pocket. I thought this one really took the biscuit; Rebekah Brooks’ lawyer complains that the police have damaged her reputation. To which the reply is, what reputation?

When you consider how Hayman, Coulson and Brooks conspired to trash the reputation of newly murdered Jean Charles De Menezes by publishing deliberate lies about him, that is sick. Even more sick when you consider that Cressida Dick, who orchestrated Menezes’ murder, is now in charge of the anti-terrorist squad as a result of all the resignations.

It is particularly fascinating that the squad of police in direct charge of pumping out years of lies to bolster the “War on Terror”, in close collusion with Brooks and Coulson, was put in charge of the investigation into those two. I have yet to see a convincing explanation of why the News of the World investigation was given to the anti-terrorist squad, as opposed to any of the Met’s many thousands of other detectives. Was this Ian Blair keeping it in politicially safe hands who would not progress it? Almost certainly yes, I would say.

The most obnoxious policeman of all time has not yet come under the spotlight in all this. He will.

    cressida dick – she was promoted as with john scarlett and others ..

    funny old world to find brooks swimming out of her depth from sleaze-hatefilled-redtops.

    Murdoch is not the problem, it is what he represents that is the problem. Rest assured, whatever happens to Murdoch, the future for what he represents will live on, we the people will be NO better off, whatever happens!.

    last time it was collective amnesia, this time it was that good parlour game of pass the buck – they knew nothing, because all of the management decisions and funding are supposedly delegated downstream.
    .
    and even when rupe tells us that he contacted the editor of notw at least 1 x month and the times and sun more often to find out what was happening .. he never told the editors what to do btw – the editors of the notw didnt mention the small issue of a million pound pay-out. and he didnt ask. nor did he ask how they managed to get their scoops. such a trusting man indeed.
    .
    and poor becky she was away when that dastardly coulson was at the helm when dowlers phone was being hacked into .. and even though she was aware that bad practices happened across fleet street it never occurred to her that it might be happening at notw or sun. so she didnt ask , and she took stories from reporters on the basis of trust and reputation and printed them without any issues at all.
    .
    you see she is part of rupes family after all.

    mind you they all sat comfortably . the police say no third party involved in the death of sean hoare .. as if someone would leave their fingerprints as a calling card ..

    ‘Wow! Rupert Murdoch just looks like a lost old man.’

    ‘Murdoch comes over as a semi-gaga coward’

    Have his minders been watching & learning from Mladic at The Hague ? Or has Rupert himself remembered the best lines from the Ernest Saunders songbook ?

    Either way, the old trouper has had them weeping in the aisles today.

    “The most obnoxious policeman of all time has not yet come under the spotlight in all this. He will.”

    You mean that $(*&^£$@’er traffic pig who pulled me over in 1994 is finally up for a hiding? About bloody time!

    The concept that Brook could have her reputation besmirched is quite amusing. As Worf (of Star Trek fame) put it, “You cannot tarnish a rusted blade.”

    It’s the Pinochet/ Ernest Saunders defence: “I’m old, very old and quite demented! So I’m innocent and to be pitied. Look – I even walk with a stick!”
