Rebekah Brooks Is a Little Bit Salem

Tsk, tsk, tsk Rebekah Brooks it maybe a little bit Salem but you may just get burned at the stake for perverting the course of justice in the News of the World phone-hacking scandal. Brooks and her hubby are crying “witch hunt” after being charged with hiding material from police. Sheez, I wonder if Scotland Yard bugged her phone?

News Of The World Whistleblower Found Dead

I was hoping this wasn’t going to happen but yes the whistleblower behind the collapse of News of The World has been found dead. Journalist Sean Hoare who blew the lid on the phone hacking scandal was discovered in his Watford home. Mr Hoare became synonymous with the scandal after telling The New York Times that Andy Coulson (the editor at the time) had encouraged staff to intercept the phone calls of celebrities. Police are not treating Mr Hoares death as suspicious. Really?

And Then There Was Two

"News of the World, and you?"

Oh boy, seems Rebekah Brooks hasn’t escaped the clutches of the police. Yep, she’s been arrested.Charges? Hmm, lets see, “suspicion of conspiring to intercept communications and making inappropriate payments to police” for starters. Run Rupert, run! Sheez, if only News of The World were around to publish it!

Psst Hmm, if I was a conspiracy theorist I would think someone doesn’t want Mrs Brooks to be grilled by the British parliament!

Rebekah Brooks Resigns

Sinking ship, sinking ship!!!

The hen has finally left the chook house! Rebekah Brooks who is embroiled in the News of the World scandal has finally resigned following an alleged outburst by Rupert Murdoch’s daughter, who  declared Mrs Brooks had “fucked the company”. Oh and if Mr Murdoch thought it couldn’t get any worse, the FBI have announced that they will investigate whether any 9/11 victims and their families have had their phones hacked.

How the Mighty Have Fallen

As Rupert Murdoch and his son James face British parliament on Tuesday to answer questions about the World of The News phone hacking scandal I wonder if we, the public, will ever know the full extent of the scandal. What other little skeletons have they be hiding in the closet? Here’s what a few of my colleagues have been saying around the water cooler…. they know the truth about what happened to Princess Diana, they have phone hacked conversations with Tony Blair and George W over the weapons of mass destruction lies, they have been supplying WikiLeaks with info, they have used information to discredit certain politicians, it goes beyond News of the World (eg Fox news) , it’s been going on far longer than anyone suspects and it’s all going to be covered up.

News Of The World Axed

News of the World is gone dot com! After 168 years Rupert Murdoch has been forced to close the paper thanks to a hacking and bribery scandal. Seems up to 4,000 phones were hacked by a private investigator working for Murdoch’s paper in order to get fodder for their stories. The most serious being the phone hacking of murdered schoolgirl Milly Dowler. The private detective hired to retrieve info had deleted several messages from her phone during the search for Milly leading the family to believe she was still alive.  Then there’s the corrupt police officers who were paid thousands by the News of The World journos for confidential information.The former editor Andy Coulson and several journalists are expected to be arrested soon over the police bribery claims. James Murdoch (Rupert’s son) has even admitted to trying to pay off some of the victims to buy their silence.  Oh and did I happen to mention the Prime Minister hired Andy Coulson as his chief spin doctor.Tsk, tsk, tsk. But don’t fret, cynics believe this is just a clever ruse by Murdoch to re-brand the paper. Hmm, so much for Fair and Balanced!!!!

Psst It is expected that 200 people will lose their jobs but surprisingly Rebekah Brooks ,the UK boss, and James Murdoch (Rupert’s son) won’t be among  them!

Duchess of Porkies

Holy Sloan Ranger Batman, Fergie (aka Duchess of York) is in the biggest pile of doo-dah since her toe sucking days. In a Countess of Wessexesque style move, Fergie has been duped by a newspaper (will they ever learn?). Yep the poor gullible ex royal was caught on tape offering to sell access to her ex for £500,000 to an undercover reporter. Oblivious to the News Of The World sting, Fergie can be seen and friggin heard negotiating with a “pretend” businessman about the price of the set up. She also insisted that she received 1% commission from all deals made as a result of her royal connections. Oh ah. She then goes on to say that Prince Andrew (who works as a special representative for the government agency UK Trade & Investment) would be a willing business partner “Look after me and he’ll look after you … you’ll get it back tenfold. I can open any door you want,” Awkward. Geez, in the good old days it would have been “off with her head!” Hmm, I wouldn’t be expecting any more invites to royal functions anytime soon.

Psst Want to really cringe? Check out Fergie on film as she makes the deal.
