Operation Elveden charges for Rebekah Brooks and Andy Coulson

These two think the police are barking up the wrong tree
The Metropolitan Police set up Operation Elveden as the investigation into corrupt payments over phone hacking and other associated matters. In the sights of the Scotland Yard sleuths came one redtop editor known as Rebekah Brooks. She was questioned, bailed, requestioned and generally exposed in the press (by other journalists) as someone who might know something. Likewise David Cameron's communications chief Andy Coulson also got investigated.

Now they are charged in connection with payments to police and public officials.This is deemed to be bribery and corruption by present day standards. However, seeing as goal posts move about these days like an intoxicated gazelle, it's hard to fathom how the long arm of the law, together with the fine minds of the CPS, can get a judge and jury to follow it all. After all, Ms Brooks is on record as saying it went on all over the place - that is, making payments to police and public officials.

I think there's a possibility of a Norman Scott moment at this forthcoming trial.The demise of Scott's dog Rinka did for the leader of the Liberal Party, Jeremy Thorpe. Just like Scott got up in court to reveal things, maybe some unknown witness is going to blurt out some terrible stuff about this that and the other and it's all hell being let loose. Jeremy Thorpe was certainly ambushed back in the late 70's. I see they've transplanted cells from dogs' noses to aide spinal injury recovery in injured mutts. Miss Brooks and Mr Coulson might need some of those nasal cells to sniff out potential bother!
