Last night I wrote a Blog Post and realised that it would take me something like 20,000 words to get what I needed to, out there. I binned it.
Suffice to say that Britain is at a crossroads. I have an acquaintance who is serving three years in prison - we're not friends but have shared time and political platforms together. I have always admired and respected him, particularly for his honesty. When he was sentenced to three years for perjury even I, one of his staunchest admirers, found it hard to believe his claims that he was the victim of a conspiracy between Rupert Murdoch's News International, the Police and the British establishment. However I didn't write him off - it was in my mind just possible, however far fetched it seemed.
All hell has let loose in Britain as evidence has been uncovered that employees of Rupert Murdoch's News International have indeed been paying bribes to Police Officers. It has also been discovered that e-mails which Murdoch's News International claimed in court did not exist - and which could have proven my acquaintance's innocence - do in fact exist and have been found on a News International server by the Information Commissioner.
There is a disgusting cabal of corruption being revealed in Britain which threatens to beat a path all the way to the door of the Prime Minister.
Tommy Sheridan - I'm sorry I ever doubted you.
I, we all, owe a big debt of thanks to the Information Commissioner, ex Deputy Prime Minister John Prescott and to the actor Hugh Grant for not letting this go.
