And how much had it cost us, the taxpayer for them to come up with this conclusion? We could have told them for free. Has Murdoch got a yacht?

This has been widely circulated, but if you think that it was just one or two rogues involved in phone hacking,
Check out this link. It should take you to an episode of HIGNFY from May 1996.
It features a sinister Piers Morgan, at the height of his incarnation as a newspaper editor of The Daily Mirror. Although not a Murdoch paper, you can sense the threat that Morgan poses as Clive Anderson remarks.

Where is Paul? Has he gone to ground? It's not nearly so much fun rubbishing the Tories without him.
