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?

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?
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!
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.
