11:40 Blogger at Coffee House on Cameron today: “The prime minister also denied that the New York Times article about phone hacking at the News of the World contained any new information.

10:40 Well, didn’t expect to see column by Murdoch attacker, Jonnie “Flipping” Marbles at The Guardian today, complete with the cute little headshot. True, it’s in the Comment is Free section, but still, the paper does control that—and notes at end that he “did not receive a fee” for his column. Marbles writes, “It’s not difficult to find reasons to dislike Rupert Murdoch. His reach is one of the most insidious and toxic forces in global politics today. The phone-hacking scandal, despicable though it is, barely scratches the surface of the damage done by News International. It is a media empire built on deceit and bile, that trades vitriol for debate and thinks nothing of greasing the wheels of power until they turn in its favour. What’s more, no matter what the grievances he wreaks on those he has never met, his power and money keep him forever safely out of their reach.”

We are currently finding out the exact nature of any advice. We can confirm that apart from Andy Coulson, neither David Cameron nor any senior member of the campaign team were aware of this until this week.”
