Andy Coulson to be arrested tomorrow

Red Top to be axed?
The News International scandal carries on more or less like night following day. Tomorrow morning Andy Coulson will get his collar felt by members of the very police force he is alleged to have funneled over £100,000 to. He will be arrested over suspicions that he knew about, or had direct involvement in, the hacking of mobile phones during his editorship of the News of the World. Murky stuff indeed. But he can't be the only one, apart from the two who we were told were the only ones.

Rebekah Brooks is having trouble keeping that butter in her mouth from melting. She strikes me as being the very worst kind of modern day corporate executive. Humpty Dumpty said he made words mean what he wanted them to mean and she has taken his advice literally. She isn't going to resign. She has the hide of a rhinocerous. Giving stick to others in a high moralising manner was her stock in trade. Now she's getting it back in spadefuls from the public and jittery business.

We need a proper judicial inquiry, no smokescreens, with a judge who can get Rupert Murdoch before him under oath telling the world what exactly went on in his newsrooms. Anything else will just not do.
