    er - the John Terry case was not "flimsy as shite", unless you think that him being recorded, witnessed and admitting calling Ferdinand a "fucking black cunt" in the midst of an argument between the two is flimsy.

    Terry did not admit to calling Ferdinand a "fucking black cunt". He admitted to asking Ferdnand if he thought he had said that.

    They had zero chance of a conviction. Even the prosecution knew it (IMO etc).

    Point of order, he didn't admit calling Ferdinand "a fucking black cunt", just saying the words.

    Anyone, enough of that twat, apologies for the derail...

    Maybe they were just asking Mr Mulcaire if he was willing to hack Millie Dowler's voicemail. 'When I said who will rid me of this turbulant priest, I didn't intend you to...'.

    Terry will be outside the court in his Chipping Norton kit.

    I assume thats the prelimarnary job where they set bail conditions etc. Is this when the actual trial date is set?

    And I like the desperate non-denial denial from Coulson about the Milly Dowler hacking charge:

    Might end up with the odd minor conviction. Most cases will collapse either before or during the trial.

    Yes, I'm sure the judge won't want to call witnesses to say that they did it for fear of making the case complicated.

    Another interesting new development, Sun journo being held on 'conspiracy to gather data from stolen mobile phones'

    Seems to be the Chief Foreign correspondent.

    I was thinking that. Wonder if they're thinking the same now (the other 6).

    Or vice versa - the others stitch her up?

    Or a bidding war with the CPS to see who can rat loudest and longest? :)

    For reference the others, next due in court on 16 August, are:
    • Andy Coulson, David Cameron's former spin doctor
    • Stuart Kuttner, ex-managing editor
    • Greg Miskiw, former news editor
    • Ian Edmondson, former head of news
    • Neville Thurlbeck, ex-chief reporter
    • James Weatherup, former reporter
    Thurlbeck gone a bit wildcard.

    But the idea of Brooks stitching up Coulson probably entertains the most :D

    It could, if we're lucky, produce a veritable clusterfuck of twat stabbing twat in the back.

    Ooh, I think I've got a semi on!

    It's funny whenever this thread pops up in my alerts I think perhaps spymaster has something right with the whole bring back capital punishment argument. ;)

    I'm hoping they all dance on the roof of an SUV before going into court to confess their sins. Inspired by the example of Saint Jessica of Ennis, there's no way they'll rat each other out.
