    Commentators seem to think this afternoon will be the good bit :)

    I'm fucked already as it started at 6am here and I'm ready to go back to bed :)

    So we have had the one rogue reporter defense and now we are getting the one rogue adviser defense, no coincidence there then :)

    I'm surprised John Terry hasn't employed the one rogue knee defence.

    David Cameron has asked the Cabinet Secretary to write to government departments clarifying the procedures for handling quasi-judicial cases.

    From the telegraph:
    His performance in the Commons this morning has led Twitter to christen Jeremy Hunt the 'Black Knight of British Politics'. "Your arm's off!" "Tis but a scratch!".

    For fuck's sake, is that necessary? Can't a woman, just for once, do her job on camera without getting blokes commenting on her appearance? :rolleyes:

    Grow up, you fucking tool.

    I was hoping Jay would get pissed off and that would trigger Murdoch :(

    Wilf Getting there

    Must admit I'm only an occasional obsever of the hearings and haven't seen that much today, but it seems like Jay isn't getting anywhere with the Murdochs. Particularly today it has been dry urbane questioning, followed by Murdoch choosing to answer in whatever fashion he wanted - with no follow up. Nothing too forensic and Murdoch dictating the pace of the contest. In fact yesterday was junior using the hearings to stir things up for Cameron/Hunt. All a bit bloodless.

    Aide to Rupe: "It's not going as well as we'd hoped, sir. I think tomorrow we may have to resort to Plan B..."

    TOMORROW:

    Murdoch: "Eggplant! Verruca sock! Generic 'Nam flashback! I wish I could just jump in the water and live like a fish.."

    B Jay Barrister: "I ain't going up in no private aeroplane with you, fool!"

    I can't see any smoking gun but I'll wait until he finishes with Murdoch to decide.

    I'm wondering if all the shit that has hit the fan since Jr yesterday has made them pull back a bit, how funny would it be if an inquiry set up by the PM wound up bringing that PM down, kind of yes minister on steroids :)

    So, I've just got home to discover that Jeremy Hunt acted with scrupulous honesty during the whole BSkyB process while his special advisor (for reasons presumably best known to himself) was desperately trying to get News Corporation to win. Well I never.

    From the BBC:

    But Frederic Michel, head of public affairs at News Corp, has said his references to "JH" in emails were actually shorthand for Mr Hunt's special adviser, Mr Smith.

    That's hilarious. I'm not really a fan of people falling on their swords generally, I think it's a bit pointless, but I hope Hunt does go.

    "Right," said Fréd, "Both of us together
    One on each end and steady as we go."
    Tried to rewrite it, but no one would bite it
    We was getting nowhere
    And so we had a cuppa tea

    Brown has released a statement:

    Does this mean Brown will authorise the release of his records of when he had contact with Murdoch?
  25. 8115

    8115 doesn't smoke

    He's very specific, I'd be surprised if he's lying.

    Yes as if JH could be mistaken for AS ,these people are unbelievable

    I wanna know if and when Jeremy Hunt went to see Swan Lake.

    Yeah, it also didn't really sound right to me, being practically the exact same words Vince cable used in his discussions with those telegraph reporters some months later. I think Rupert may be misremembering...

    Perhaps there was a performance behind a certain tree (link from Guido's website).
