Hacking the mobile phones of British families who had lost loved ones to sexually depraved violent criminals,
al-Qaeda inspired “terrorists” and Taliban insurgents

Safe in the knowledge that Murdoch’s News International phone hacking scandal
will now be subject to forensic examination and extensive analysis,

In doing so I believe I will get closer to the heart of Murdoch politics
– an important topic that will almost certainly remain untouched by any official inquiry into the criminality and immorality
that has dramatically engulfed his media business in Britain.
