One story that will not go away – despite some parts of the political spectrum trying vainly to shout it down – is Phonehackgate. Former assistant Met Commissioner Brian Paddick and Labour’s Chris Bryant have started legal action alleging a police cover-up.
Also now confirmed to be taking action against Rupe’s troops at the Screws are Steve Coogan and Chris Tarrant, along with Nicola Phillips, formerly assistant to Max Clifford. Clifford was effectively bought off by Murdoch’s representative on this part of the earth, Rebekah Brooks (née Wade), the sum changing hands said to be north of a million notes.
For a supposed “non story”, there seems to be rather a lot of story in this one.
[UPDATE: Sienna Miller has now joined the fray]
