Sun hacks?

So are we to expect Mr Murdoch to do the right thing and close down The Sun now?

I thought at the time that the action taken over the Screws' bent hacks could be setting a dangerous precedent for NI.....

WTF?

why

is nobody naming these people? really, loads of people get named by the papers when they commit crimes.. is there an injunction or some court ruling with regards the people allegedly involved?

Any police officer found to have taken monies for passing information or any other service which compromised their role as police officers should be publicly outed and made to pay back anything they received and then fired... especially if they had or have a job at an NI owned/controlled business. They held the public trust and betrayed it.

This is far worse than the politicians claiming for pr0n on the missus's expense account.

Time to break out the Cactus Bats methinks.

Arresting NewsCorp Directors - When?

So when are the directors of the company going to be arrested?

When will see actions taken under the proceeds of crime act?

Only one bent cop? Really?

If you believe that then I have a fine bridge for sale.

Far more likely he was the sacrificial Norman no-mates that nobody down the nick liked.

What's the betting even he's punished with a full police pension.

I'm still waiting for Ian Blair to be charged with corruption for accepting tens of thousands of pounds worth of jollies.
