Brooks cleared in hacking trial NEW

Post by jjbd » Tue Jun 24, 2014 12:38 pm

Ex-News International chief executive Rebekah Brooks has been cleared of all charges in the phone-hacking trial.

Former News of the World editor Andy Coulson was found guilty at the Old Bailey of conspiring to hack phones.

The jury found Mrs Brooks not guilty of conspiracy to hack voicemails, two counts of conspiracy to pay public officials and two counts of conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.

She and Coulson both denied all charges against them.

They were among seven defendants on trial at the Old Bailey.

An emotional Mrs Brooks was taken away by the court matron on hearing the verdicts

It really is like watching an episode of 'The Thick of It' - we can only imagine the duties of communication directors in the heart of Westminster, and it gives us an insight into how former chief weasel Clarence was able to spin the McCann case.

Will the McCanns spokesman and Tory candidate for Brighton Pavilion, Clarence Mitchell, be making a statement on behalf of his friend and fellow spin doctor, Andy Coulson, explaining how 'There is an innocent explanation for everything'?

David Cameron has just made a statement to the BBC saying he is 'extremely sorry' that he appointed Andy Coulson as his Director of Communications:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-27998411

He hasn't yet apologised for the decision that he and Coulson took to appoint McCann-spokesman-for-the-last-7-years, Clarence Mitchell, as Coulson's Deputy, in March 2010.

Very much to the contrary, Mithcell has been appointed to try to win the seat of Brighton Pavilion for the Conservative Party
that last one generated a "wow" from cristobell

Why do these illiterate morons think the only option open to people is a civil prosecution? There are criminal penalties for harassment, stalking and malicious communications which can result in a prison sentence - your money/property doesn't enter into it unless you get a fine.

There are also criminal penalties for harassment of a witness (which technically the McCanns are); for interfering in an investigation, and for perverting the course of justice.

Please, you cerebrally challenged cabbage, carry on :s_thumbsup

I believe the head researcher on that "forum" has done that in the past. He has issued numerous public apologies and paid out money for his inaccurate name and shame and get it wrong policy. (bennett)

This week we've had that seriously nasty angel of death Mandelson step out of his coffin and splutter something along the lines of 'if invading Iraq was a mistake it was an honest mistake'. That's Blair off the hook then.

Also this week we've had a sincere apology from 'call me Dave' about his appointment of Coulson. That's Dave off the hook then.

This week, the appointed Pink Person let's call him 'Clazza' (as one of his supporters on twitter does) who was head of MMU for the Labour Party, controlling what came out in the press became spokesperson for the McCanns and is now amazingly PPS for Brighton and Hove has said bugger all about anything.

I despair.
no - you are desperate

A fascinating account of the phone hacking trial by Nick Davies.
