Another Scalp!

There seems to be no end of news and surprises in the wake of the News International scandal with the resignation of Sir Paul Stephenson, Commissioner of the Metroploitan Police; and that is the biggest scalp so far.

It is impossible to underestimate the significance of this resignation, it just goes to show how far into the Police that News International had their tentacles.

This could well be our Watergate and I'm sure that David Cameron will be increasingly uncomfortable tonight and rightly so. I bet now Cameron wished he'd given the spin doctor job to Guto Harri and not followed Rebekah Brooks's advice (or was that an order) and hired Coulson.

The question is, what happens next? There are lots of very important people due to appear before the Commons Culture, Media & Sport committee this week, that is if the Met haven't arrested them first.

Don't be surprised to hear that John Yates and James Murdoch might be moving onto pastures new this week.

Bent MPs and peers, corrupt media, corrupt police.

Isn't London wonderful?

I think this could bring Cameron down eventually. The extent of the Murdoch empire's grip on key institutions is unravelling daily. It was the Sun wot spun it...
