Daily Mirror Hacked Phones: John Prescott Still Takes Their Cash For Columns
AND lo it came to pass: Trinity Mirror has admitted that some of its staff were involved in ilegal phone hacking.
The righteous Daily Mirror – the self-styled “intelligent tabloid” – will compensate Shane Richie, Shobna Gulati, Lucy Benjamin and Alan Yentob for listening into their private phone calls.
The company publishes titles including the Daily Mirror, Sunday Mirror and Sunday People.
And you know who writes for the tusty Mirror? Yep, it’s mullet-thumping, secretary-shagging, love-cheat John Prescott, champion of the surveillance-happy Government that watched us via ubiquitous CCTV, thought ID cards a good idea and brought about the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act.
Prezza hates sooping.
Here’s Blair’s man-with-the-common touch, the great croquet player himself:
Prescott wants Press regulation. He wants free speech curtailed.
A ‘bad’ free press is better than the alternative – a ‘good’ controlled press.
