News of the World Journo arrested

SystemSystem Posts: 8,653 Staff Team
In case you'd missed it a journalist and some royal staff have been arrested after allegations of bugging and listening to private voicemails.

Apparently if found guilty they could get two years.

If they are found guilty they should definitely get two years and the paper should be done for aiding and abeting.

    Doesn't really matter. Plenty more where they came from plus Murdoch will pull some strings and he'll probably only serve half and hour or something like that.

    I wish I could say I was suprised by this but I've come to expect nothing less from the rags.

    Good. Maybe it'll encourage them to report on real news rather than the Royals, Immigrants, and so and so's latest tit job.

    If what those guys have allegedly done is worthy of 2 years locked in a cage,what should be the fate of the people behind this very sophisticated operation:

    Fingers crossed he gets the full whack.

    Maybe we can all chip in to get him soap on a rope and some KY?
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Surely the KY is too much?

    Depends on your definition of "real news".

    There are speculative stories around that what was heard on the tapes was very "political".

    Enough to give some of you "politicos" a hard on ;)

    Personally I turned over and fell asleep !
