Rebekah Brooks, former head of Rupert Murdoch’s News International, has been charged with perverting the course of justice (the British version of obstruction of justice) for trying to conceal evidence in the investigation of phone hacking and bribery of government officials. Her husband Charlie and her personal assistant have been charged as well.
Not a happy day for her, obviously, but neither is it good for James and Rupert Murdoch or David Cameron. Will she sing, or will she keep her mouth shut and be “rewarded” by the Murdochs?
This scandal is a lot of fun, but from my American perspective, it won’t be completely satisfying unless it reaches Fox News.
If anyone knows where the “bodies are buried” it’s Rebekah Wade, oops Brooks. David Cameron is stuck on the wrong side of the security gates as this big train bears down. Her song goes way back to the days of Tony Blair, Peter Mandelson et al.
I agree. She’s a very interesting personality in terms of how she maneuvered to get and stay ahead.
