Good yes

Cameron and Murdoch are still protecting Brooks. Dad thinks Murdoch will just keep her out of Britain and see if the police go to the fuss of trying to eradicate her?

She will be the new editor of the "Sunday Sun." You read it here first.
According to a source close to Murdoch, she is "family."

Oh yeah she totally is, which is why there's no way he'll fire her. Also why, despite Cameron's claims that there will be a full police investigation and those responsible will face trial for involvement, there's no way any serious moves will be made against her Rolling Eyes

I know I'm paranoid. But am I paranoid enough?

Can't wait for the full and frank findings of the independent inquiry undertaken by the Murdoch Committee.

Brooks will make a quick decision regarding a seven day sun, apparently.

Should this even be allowed? It's just the NotW by any other name.

That will be up to the various controllers to decide. Will probably happen though, right or not.

When this came on the 10 pm news last night, I felt like putting my foot through the set (except I can't afford a new one!)

Cameron's stuck between a rock and a hard place and his blustering is going to get him nowhere.  Also he must be sh*tting himself - what can of worms can Coulson open up about him?

I also wonder how this will impact on the Scottish case of Tommy Sheridan who was imprisoned for three years for perjury in his successful defamation action against the NOWT, given that these three gave evidence at the perjury trial - Coulson, Scottish editor Bob Bird and news editor Douglas Wight.

How many people will be buying the final edition of the newspaper today?  Will it be a sell out, or will it be given the cold shoulder it deserves?

True the buck stops with Cameron.  News International has too much influence in this country not only with the tories but the labour party as well. They both sought to be in Murdoch's good books.
I feel sorry for the rest of the staff at the News of the World who had nothing to do with the dirty dealings going on.

Heard on the news this morning a recording taken in a meeting The the editorial team unknown to them that there is a lot more to come out.  Do not know why people by this rag, cannot understand it.
All it has in it is sex and scandal which will just carry on in the same way.  Cameron must have known about some of the goings on.  If he did not he is not fit to be the Prime Minister

Rebekah Brooks is the woman that was arrested for abuse against her then husband Ross Kemp (Grant Mitchell in Eastenders) but she was later released without charge, I really don't understand why Murdoch etc. are standing by a woman like this, she's not exactly squeeky clean on any front.  confused
