Rebekah Wade Brooks – Good For An Hour’s Harmful Fun 33


If anybody feels that News International’s chief executive Rebekah Brooks and those close to her should have their champagne lives a little bit interrupted and annoyed, facebook members can always go to her facebook page. You can scroll down her friends on the left hand side, and send them messages telling them exactly what you think of the company they keep. They include several Murdochs, and the odd MP, so you can get quite abusive. Don’t do threatening, please.

I do think an hour’s harmful diversion breaks up the working day to useful effect. Nobody will be nearly as upset as were the families of muder victims by what Ms Brooks’ organisation did in phone hacking their lost relatives.

The most astonishing fact to emerge so far is that it is now six months since News International emails were given over listing tens of thousands of pounds of corrupt payments they made to police. Yet nobody – bent policeman or Murdoch slime – is in handcuffs for this yet. Is there any possible innocent explanation for this?

    Hi Clark, yes the methods you suggest are in use by modern bugging systems so that they record over a long time and then broadcast that data very quickly reducing the chances of detection. All things are possible but are they probable for most people? Depends what you get up to in your life and who you might be of interest to. Professional criminals use brand new phones with PAYG SIMs and destroy them regularly however there is still a risk of being rumbled. The only sure way of not being hacked on your mobile is not to have one! Unfortunatley for most people they have become invaluable even though for the most part people talk nonsense on them. For the current scandal where phones have been hacked, it is actually the voice messaging system which was hacked as most users didnt choose their own PIN code. One way to stop this is to request that your VM system is deactivated by the operating company. Modern digital phones are highly encrypted and specialised equipment is needed which is not easily bought and so casual eavesdropping as was possible with the original analogue system is unlikely especially by journalists or private investigators.

    Going back to the apple “bug” it only appeared in a more recent software release and could not have appeared by accident. There may be a good commercial reason for having this function installed, however there are also clandestine possibilities for it too. If you need a mobile phone, use an old one, without a camera and fancy gizzmos which are not really needed and only use it when you need it and have VM switched off! The other debate with mobile phones is their radio emissions and the possible dangers to health which is perhaps a more compelling reason not to use them!

    Parky, thanks. It is interesting to note that the regulatory authorities have consistently dismissed the health risks from mobile ‘phones. Compare and contrast with JimmyGiro’s links on the thread linked below, which clearly show that electromagnetic fields can alter people’s perceptions and induce involuntary muscle movement.

    The authorities wouldn’t be suppressing evidence of health risks to encourage people to carry personal bugging and surveillance devices, surely?

    Parky, you wrote “Modern digital phones are highly encrypted and specialised equipment is needed which is not easily bought”. However, the ‘phones themselves must be capable of performing such decryption, or they would be unusable. Presumably, it’s just a matter of obtaining the appropriate decryption key. This information will be retained by the manufacturers and/or the ‘phone companies, but I expect it is available at a price.

    So people or organisations that are wealthy enough can intercept people’s communications. It’s another example of the power of the elite.
