News of the World Alleged to Have Bugged Al Qaeda Victims. Yep, looks like those evil fuckers hacked the phones of relatives of the people who were killed in the Tube/bus bombing in 2005. Classy. But the reason I posted this Kos diary and not the account as written up in The Guardian or the LA Times (source for the diarist) is for the updates. Specifically, commenters living in the UK have added the following:
I can tell you that the public here in Britain are in full meltdown mode about this. Quite rightly and at long last IMHO. Murdoch may finally be meeting his much delayed Karma. I'm really hoping for a scandal of Watergate proportions for ol' Rupe.
Ha, ha, ha. Protesters with Rupert Murdoch masks manipulating a puppet david cameron outside of parliament today.
Oy!, right now there is a dead serviceman's mother in tears on the BBC, she has learned that relatives phones may have been hacked after servicemen were killed in action. Tons of big companies are now pulling advertising, don't want to be associated with Murdoch.
Remember, Newt Gingrich got Rupert his U.S. citizenship so he could buy up all our media. That is, Rupert is not a U.K. citizen. So how will it look as people howl over the atrocities and Cameron tries to make sure that Murdoch gets to buy BSkyB? Yeah, Cameron should be very nervous. If Nick Clegg still has a working testicle, he should be trying to work out a deal with Ed Miliband now. Of course it will be too little, too late. He made his deal with the devil, and his poltical career is probably dead. Good. I hope it serves as an example to the other political whores. Yeah, this is getting better with each day.
