News International papers targeted Gordon Brown. I repeat: I think that this can bring Cameron down. How likely is it that Andy Coulson, his former communicatons director who was arrested last Friday, did not use or share information that News of the World obtained illegally about Brown for Cameron's benefit?
That said, the bastards hacked Brown's bank records. But there was something more that they did that is so despicable that I know that you will agree that justice will not be served unless Rebekah Brooks' filthy ass is hauled to jail:
Confidential health records for Brown's family have reached the media on two different occasions. In October 2006, the then editor of the Sun, Rebekah Brooks, contacted the Browns to tell them that they had obtained details from the medical file of their four-month-old son, Fraser, which revealed that the boy was suffering from cystic fibrosis. This appears to have been a clear breach of the Data Protection Act, which would allow such a disclosure only if it was in the public interest. Friends of the Browns say the call caused them immense distress, since they were only coming to terms with the diagnosis, which had not been confirmed. The Sun published the story.
Five years earlier, when their first child, Jennifer, was born on 28 December 2001, a small group of specialist doctors and nurses was aware that she had suffered a brain haemorrhage and was dying. By some means which has not been discovered, this highly sensitive information was obtained by news organisations, who published it over the weekend before Jennifer died, on Monday 6 January 2002.
String them all up. Then go after the ones here.
