Prescott calls for hacking probe

John Prescott may have been a politician that I never much agreed with, but on this matter he is 100% right. The Murdoch press, a business empire rather that a journalistic medium, is now in the frame for bugging the phones of up to 3,000 public figures.

It is a scandalous affair, not just because Murdoch's minions went overboard on this, but because the police, the CPS and others appear to have colluded with this down-under snake. And David Cameron, whilst he is absolutely right to give people second chances, should really wonder a bit more whether it is right and proper to have such a man as Andy Coulson at his side.
