Who can you trust?

The mobile phone, the tool for fools?

The mobile phone bites the hand of those who feed it, ha ha!The mobile phone bites the hand of those who feed it, ha ha!
Today is a good day for most the MSM. Not for the News of the World I'll agree, but the rest of the pack are whooping it up. The phone hacking allegations are high octane stuff and the story of the moment. As you might expect there's more to this than a quick look reveals. From the Spectator we get the following -

News International have allegedly handed emails to the police that show Andy Coulson as editor of the News of the World authorised payments to the police. If this was true, it would be illegal.

Oh how funny! We can't trust the press to regulate itself, but the police? Oh that's just fine! I shall be laughing all day at this.

Even more laughter when you remember that just days ago when whinging about the proposals to reform the police Sir Hugh Orde said -

that if reforms are "mismanaged" by ministers it could "threaten the impartial model of policing that has existed for 180 years and is revered across the world

The allegations that the police AND the press are part of a grubby scheme may prove to be untrue. But who can the public trust? This story reaches out beyond the police and the press right up to the Prime Minister. In fact right acros the whole world, but perhaps not quite as those who live in the bubble imagine!
