Hello Paolo. Good to see ya! How's Canada treating you?

Quite the day today. The whistleblower, former NOTW journalist Sean Hoare, was found dead at his home in the early hours. Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Paul Stephenson and Assistant Commissioner John Yates both resigned just hours before that.

The Murdoch's under oath before the Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee. Neither coming out too positively imo. Rupert gave the perception of being completely out of touch with his own organisation. They clearly paid Glenn Mulcaire's fees (the hacker/private investigator) as their reaction to that line of questioning said it all. Rebekah Brooks fared better but claimed to have no knowledge of how her team of journalists got their information.

Can't understand how the committee came to be led by Keith Vaz, given his previous.
