James Bulger: Robert Thompson gets compensation for News of The World hacking his phone

by | 19th, February 2012

JAMES Bulger is back in the news. Denise Fergus, mother of the toddler murdered by Jon Venables an Robert Thomson in 1993, is upset that Thompson may be due a pay out for, reportedly, having his phone hacked by the News of The World .

Says Mrs Fergus, 44:

“It would be a terrible insult to James’ memory if the animal who murdered him was receive to a payment. He cannot be allowed to benefit from the wicked crime that he committed in robbing James of his life.”

So. What do to, then?

“If his phone was hacked that is wrong. But the only reason that they were interested in him was that fact that he murdered my son. If there is to be compensation paid then all the money should go to charity and if his lawyers had a shred of decency that’s what they would advise him to do. I’m challenging them now to say that any money involved in this will go to charity. Anything else would be outrageous.”

The only reason the hacks wer interested in John Prescott was because he was the deputy prime minister. Should he donate his pay out to the taxpayer?
