Here's a cut/paste from an article that was pulled by Reuters, that no longer exists, you'll get a "not found" on the link at the bottom:

"Over the past four years Murdoch's U.S.-based News Corp.
has made money on income taxes. Having earned ...$10.4 billion in
profits, News Corp. would have been expected to pay $3.6
billion at the 35 percent corporate tax rate. Instead, it
actually collected $4.8 billion in income tax refunds, all or
nearly all from the U.S. government.
The relevant figure is the cash paid tax rate. This is the
net amount of corporate income taxes actually paid after
refunds. For those four years, it was minus 46 percent,
disclosure statements show.

Even on an accounting basis, which measures taxes incurred
but often not actually paid for years, News Corp. had a tax
rate of under 20 percent, little more than half the 35 percent
statutory rate, company disclosures examined by Reuters show.
News Corp. had no comment.

Fox News, the editorial pages of his Wall Street Journal
and other Murdoch outlets often rail against taxes. Their
attacks on government benefits for the elderly, the sick, the
jobless and children focus attention on the uses of tax dollars
and away from his aggressive efforts to enjoy the benefits of
civilization without paying for them.

Many other companies may follow similar practices but most
of corporate America doesn't own one of the country's most
powerful newspaper editorial pages."

Interesting that the first mention of phone hacking was by three royal aides in 2005.

Also interesting is that Schillings use this event (about people accessing info re Prince William's injured knee) to justify super injunctions. Schillings now protect the royals and their interests.

When Tony Farrell talks about 'the enemy within' I presume that he means the enemy within our government (the John Adam St Gang, which includes the queen and co).

Interesting that Farrell is now interviewed by the Murdoch press, who set off the publicity for this story on the back of the royal aides' complaints.

Has anyone got any evidence that Tony Farrell has given an interview with the said press?

Some experts say that the security design was weakened on purpose and could be made far more secure (other than the Intel that we know that can listen in etc) Apparently on the black market devices can be bought for such activities, which then could give the Intel plausible deniability.

I do know that even the Emergency services (Including the police) have their own gsm network called airwaves that I have worked on in the past (I don’t know how secure that is.)

Such as the searches:

gsm secrets revealed, gsm listening authorities listening devices.



We also know that the press have gone on a smear campaign along with it seems J7

I find it interesting that a committed Christian has found Islamic terror to be a much greater threat than. Considering, arguably both 9/11 and the 7/7 bombers were in part state sponsored by working in parts of the world where at best a blind eye is turned towards the training, preperation and harbouring of terrorists, I can't help but wonder if he's missing the point that they are interleaved and being blinded by his faith.

But wasn't he arguing that Islamic extremism is less of a threat than state-sponsored terrorism, or have I misread the articles? I'm a bit confused.

Get your coat Dave.

It emerged last night that Neil Wallis, the former News of the World deputy editor who was arrested last week, worked for the Conservative Party before last year's election. He gave "informal" advice to Andy Coulson, his former boss at the NOTW, who resigned from the paper over the hacking affair but was later appointed Mr Cameron's director of communications.

In a second blow to the Prime Minister, it was revealed that his chief of staff, Ed Llewellyn, had appealed to Scotland Yard not to mention hacking during a Downing Street briefing last September, four months before Mr Coulson quit his No 10 post. Labour said the disclosure showed Mr Cameron could not do his job properly because of the cloud cast by the hacking controversy.

A 2nd News Executive, Now Arrested, May Have Counseled Cameron
By GRAHAM BOWLEY and DON VAN NATTA Jr.
Published: July 19, 2011

LONDON — The British phone-hacking scandal crept closer to Prime Minister David Cameron of Britain on Tuesday when his party admitted that another former news executive recently arrested may have provided informal public relations advice before last year’s election.

The Conservative Party said that the executive, Neil Wallis, may have provided Mr. Cameron’s communications director, Andy Coulson, with unpaid advice on a voluntary basis and that it was looking into the matter. Mr. Wallis had been Mr. Coulson’s deputy at The News of the World, the newspaper in Rupert Murdoch’s media empire, now defunct, at the center of the phone-hacking scandal, but left in 2009. Mr. Coulson was arrested July 8 as part of the police investigation into phone hacking by reporters at The News of the World.

The latest revelations were likely to prove uncomfortable for Mr. Cameron, who has repeatedly had to explain his decision to hire Mr. Coulson and defend his close relations with Mr. Murdoch’s executives in Britain. Mr. Cameron cut short a state visit to Africa to address a special debate on phone hacking in Parliament on Wednesday.

Mr. Wallis was arrested last week, when it also emerged that he had been working as a public relations consultant for the Metropolitan Police Service, more commonly called the Met or Scotland Yard. That revelation raised additional questions about the close ties between Mr. Murdoch’s newspapers and the police, which led to inquiries into five current and former senior Metropolitan Police officials by the Independent (ish) Police Complaints Commission.

In harsh questioning in front of the Home Affairs Committee, the senior officers revealed that 10 of the Met’s 45-member media relations department are former News International employees.

Foam Pie Stunt may have been staged to garner sympathy for Murdoch a la Berlusconi fake attack

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1237298/You-Tube-video-suggest s-attack-Berlusconi-faked-overnight-sensation.html

Rupert's wife was probably up to the task considering her past history

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wendi_Deng

Quote:
After entering the United States, Deng lived with the Cherry family for a while when attending university. Mrs. Cherry suspected her husband was having an affair with Deng (30 years his junior) and demanded she leave the house. Mr. Cherry soon followed and moved in with her.[5] The two married in 1990.[4] Deng and Cherry's marriage lasted 2 years and 7 months before they were legally divorced,[5] but he would later explain they only stayed together for 4 or 5 months,[4] after which he learned of the extramarital relationship Deng had with David Wolf.[4] Nonetheless, she had been able to secure a green card through being legally married to Cherry.[4][5]

In 1997, Deng met Rupert Murdoch at a company party in Hong Kong.[6] Deng and Murdoch married in 1999,[12] less than three weeks after his divorce from ex-wife Anna Maria Torv Murdoch Mann was finalized.[12]

'Murdoch dead, body discovered': LulzSec hacks 'The Sun'


Link


Quote:
Uploaded by RussiaToday on 19 Jul 2011
News International has got a taste of its own medicine, after one of its most-popular newspapers was hacked. A fake story appeared on The Sun's website which falsely claimed Rupert Murdoch had died, before directing readers to the hackers' Twitter page. It was posted by a group called LulzSec, which previously attacked the Fox News and CIA homepages. An allied group called Anonymous has also been active, saying it brought down The Times website, which is another Murdoch publication. As the claims swirl from the gutter press to the top of the establishment, there's concern the police bribery allegations could cloud the investigation.

Vetting procedures now in the frame.

Okay, after today's the scandal is moving beyond News International, beyond Scotland Yard and on to the criminal complicity of the Security Service vetting process. Who vetted alleged former hackers, Andy Coulson and Neil Wallis, to work at Number 10.

Let's not forget that the crooked Israeli security firm Verint Systems (changed their name from Comverse Technologies after scandal) was also 'vetted' before being alowed to bid for the tube privatised security contract.

What the new press regulation is all about, hence the cross party unity of all politicians who have spent the last 30years on their knees to Murdoch....



Mussolini and the Press
Censorship and press

It has been said that Italian press self-censored itself before the censorship commission could do it. Effectively the actions against press were formally very few, but it has been noted that due to press hierarchical organization, the regime felt to be quite safe, controlling it by the direct naming of directors and editors.

Most of the intellectuals that after the war would have freely expressed their anti-fascism, were however journalists during fascism, and quite comfortably could find a way to work in a system in which news directly came from the government (so-called "veline", by the tissue-paper used for type-writer copies) and only had to be adapted to the forms and the styles of each respective target audience.

Newer revisionists talk about a servility of journalists, but are surprisingly followed in this concept by many other authors and by some leftist ones too, since the same suspect was always attributed to Italian press, before, during and after the Ventennio, and still in recent times the category has not completely demonstrated yet its independence from "strong powers". A well known Italian journalist writer, Ennio Flaiano, certainly an anti-fascist, used to say that journalists don't need to care of "that irrelevant majority of Italians".

Independent (illegal) press used clandestine print and distribution, and were mainly connected with the activities of local political groups.

The control on legitimate papers was practically operated by faithful civil servants at the printing machines and this allows reporting a common joke affirming that any text that could reach readers had been "written by the Duce and approved by the foreman".

Fascist censorship promoted papers with wider attention to mere chronology of delicate political moments, to distract public opinion from dangerous passages of the government. Press then created "monsters" or focused on other terrifying figures (murderers, serial killers, terrorists, pedophiles, etc.). When needed, an image of a safe ordered State was instead to be stressed, then police were able to capture all the criminals and, as a famous topic says, trains were always in perfect time. All these maneuvers were commonly directed by MinCulPop directly.

After fascism, democratic republic did not change the essence of the fascist law on press, which is now organized as it was before, like the law on access to the profession of journalist remained unaltered.

About satire and related press, Fascism was not more severe, and in fact a famous magazine, Marc'Aurelio, was able to live with little trouble. In 1924-1925, during the most violent times of fascism (when squads used brutality against opposition) with reference to the death of Giacomo Matteotti killed by fascists, Marc'Aurelio published a series of heavy jokes and "comic" drawings describing Mussolini finally distributing peace; eternal peace, in this case. Marc'Aurelio however would have turned to a more integrated tone during the following years and in 1938 (the year of the racial laws) published tasteless anti-Semitic contents.

[edit] Censorship in private communications

Quite obviously, any telephone call was at risk of being intercepted and, sometimes, interrupted by censors.

Not all the letters were opened, but not all those read by censors had the regular stamp that recorded the executed control. Most of the censorship was probably not declared, to secretly consent further police investigations.

Chattering en plein air was indeed very risky, as a special section of investigators dealt with what people was saying on the roads; an eventual accusation by some policeman in disguise was evidently very hard to disprove and many people reported of having been falsely accused of anti-national sentiments, just for personal interests of the spy. Consequently, after the first cases, people commonly avoided talking publicly.

Silvio Berlusconi's attack on a free press belongs to the Mussolini age




By Adrian MichaelsWorldLast updated: June 11th, 2010



A great number of people working in the Italian judiciary behave incorrectly. Convinced that they will never secure convictions of the rich and powerful, they habitually leak their entire investigations to newspapers, so at least to hang their subjects in the court of public opinion. It is a shameful way to ride over due process, no matter how much it may seem justified.

So I have some sympathy with Silvio Berlusconi’s attempts significantly to tighten up the rules on judicial surveillance, wiretaps and leaks, even if it once again looks like the Italian prime minister is putting the machinery of state to use in the service of protecting his personal interests.

But – and it’s a big but – Berlusconi’s attack on the journalists who print transcripts of telephone conversations or other such information from judicial sources is completely indefensible. By all means toughen penalties for leaking, but journalists in a free press operating in a post-Enlightenment Western world have a duty to inform. They have a duty to print what they come across, and to bring facts to light that are in the public interest. La Repubblica, Italy’s main Left-leaning daily and habitual foe of Berlusconi, has taken to pasting notes on its pages saying that under the new law certain stories would not appear. Its front page today (in the top left of the internet home page) is a blank and eloquent protest.

Benito Mussolini loved press censorship. He used to herd newspapers into the same buildings, the better to control what information came out. Berlusconi’s instincts seem authoritarian, not democratic. In fact he was recently bemoaning his apparent powerlessness and sympathising with a similar Mussolini complaint. It’s that sort of behaviour that scares me rigid, and reinforces the very ugly stench coming off this new legislation.

Vetting procedures now in the frame.

Okay, after today's the scandal is moving beyond News International, beyond Scotland Yard and on to the criminal complicity of the Security Service vetting process. Who vetted alleged former hackers, Andy Coulson and Neil Wallis, to work at Number 10.

Let's not forget that the crooked Israeli security firm Verint Systems (changed their name from Comverse Technologies after scandal) was also 'vetted' before being alowed to bid for the tube privatised security contract.


Well we all know that phones can be hacked, so this news although news worthy is like advertising and a smoke screen for a bigger story rubbished in the news.

Media ownership, politics and why less might change than it ought


I was doing the funeral of a lovely man, Ron Nicholls yesterday. Ron, who’s son David is part of Springfield, used to work for the Times in the ’80′s when Murdoch took it over. He was one of the thousands sacked by Murdoch and he and David were on the picket lines most weeks for a year before it all came to an end.

All of the current focus is on News International and understandably so from some points of view given what they have done. But one of the little remarked things about the entire News International farrago is the ownership of much of the British media. When you look at who owns what it is hardly surprising that we have the problems that we do in this country.

Many of our newspapers are owned and therefore influenced by people that you wouldn’t necessarily want as next door neighbours. So lets go through who owns which of our mainstream titles:

Sun, Sunday Times, Times – News International.Rupert Murdoch, you will all have your views of him and his proprietorship.

Daily Express, Sunday Express, Daily Star and Daily Star Sunday. These are all owned by Richard Desmond. He made his money with pornographic mags and TV. The Express newspapers have not paid their dues to the Press Complaints Commission which is supposed to regulate the press and has been excluded from it. Desmond has been described as a “rogue publisher”.

The Telegraph and Sunday Telegraph are owned by the Barclay brothers. These are a secretive pair who live on the small island of breqhou off of Sark in the Channel Islands. Not only does this enable them to avoid tax but they have attempted to bully and manipulate the people of Sark.

The Independent has on its front page the line “free from party political bias, free from proprietorial influence”. However, it and the Evening Standard are owned by Alexander Lebedev an ex-KGB agent and Russian billionaire. According to a Guardian article he remains close to the KGB.

The Daily Mail and the Sunday Mail are owned by Viscount Rothermere. He is a non-domicile meaning that his main home is outside of the UK (in this case France) for tax purposes.


In terms of ownership the least problematic are The Mirror papers (owned by a listed company Trinity Mirror) and the Guardian and Observer (owned by a charitable trust The Scott Trust). Interestingly both left of centre publications.

There is much interest in replacing the PCC with external regulation. I suspect that this may well come into being but I am not certain. The reason for this is that although Ed Milliband is laying into News International there are reasons why politicians (and especially senior ones) will be careful. When the next election comes about papers will still be there. They will still influence hundreds of thousands of readers and therefore will be key for politicians getting their message over to the electorate (you and I).

There was a fascinating interview by Jack Straw on the Today programme this morning saying much the same thing. He said,


any political leader, especially Labour leader, had to make their peace with the right-wing press in the UK, otherwise, they “ensured that we have got stuffed in elections”.

“It is through the press that the electorate perceive politicians,” says Jack Straw. “If you are a political leader, you have to take account of that.”

Already the Guardian is coming out, albeit cautiously, against external regulation and this will only increase in the coming months by most of the newspapers. The blame will be put on rogue elements (as News International appear to be saying at the moment).

But it isn’t just News International. In the Spectator Coffee House blog this week was an article showing the linking of reporting invasion of privacy and the paper’s own invasions of privacy. The accompanying graphic (shown below) shows how many staff were caught paying for private information.



What is surprising is that both the Mirror (the worst offender) and the Guardian had staff caught in such a way even though they could be argued to have the better ownership structures.

So where do we go from here?

Well a number of things really. Firstly, we are culpable as users of the media. None of us are innocent. We get the media we deserve. Why do the papers print such rubbish? Well one of the reasons is that we lap up the gossip and the intrique.

News of the World sold over 2 million copies each week. Millions read it for the gossip and tittle-tattle. We love to know what is going on. We love to know the behind-the-scenes whether in celebrity culture or in the political sphere.

What is different this time is that they picked on an abducted girl and deleted phone messages on her mobile phone and they hacked into the phones of relatives of the war dead.

We must have an external independent ombudsman for the media whatever the media throw at the politicians (and be prepared for some very nasty stories about politicians with innuendo and smears in the early autumn).

We need to look at the ownership rules of the media for our country. They are not like other goods and services. They can strike at the root of our democracy. If someone like Rupert Murdoch can summon senior politicians at short notice to the other side of the world because of his power then that is bad for democracy.

The media should only be allowed to be owned by UK citizens resident in this country. Political parties are no longer allowed to receive gifts from overseas residents and the same should apply to the media ownership.

We also have a choice. We can choose to be careful what we read. It is now easier than ever to choose the decent journalists to read online and not just take a paper that feeds us its line. I tend now to read individual journalists on a number of papers (and avoid others!).

So, how would you solve this democratic crisis?

Update 17.45 Saturday

I mentioned the Guardian coming out against external regulation. I missed two others. The Daily Mail and the Telegraph have come out against outside regulation. The Daily Mail compares Cameron to Mugabe of Zimbabwe:


top of the class for hypocrisy is Mr Cameron who, in a desperate and cynical bid to deflect attention from his own terrible lack of judgment in becoming so close to the Murdoch empire, delivered a body blow to Britain’s free Press by announcing that some kind of statutory control would now be necessary.

Truly, it is a dark day for the Conservative Party when its leader, in a bid to save his own skin, advocates the muzzling of the free Press. Mr Mugabe would be proud of him.

This is where we start to see the self-serving elements of the press coming to the fore. They have shown themselves incapable of policing themselves.

Josie Filmer of the Telegraph complains


He even, disingenuously, compared the scandal to that of MPs’ expenses.

Of course, she is wrong about that. It is FAR worse than the expenses scandal.

OMG - some boo-boo Wink
Sounds to me like he wasn't trusted by Whitehall - of course Cameron knew that but wanted his and Rupert's mate Coulson in the job. Bad move brother.


Andy Coulson was never given top security clearance in government
Andy Coulson was granted only mid-level clearance, so avoiding the most rigorous security checks into his background
http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/2011/jul/20/andy-coulson-security-clea rance-checks
Jonathan Powell, Blair's former chief of staff, said: "In our time in No 10, the press officers were all cleared at the highest level. It is essential if you are going to work on international matters to be able to read intelligence and other relevant material."
The Cabinet Office said that, unlike Campbell and Powell, Coulson's job did not require him to have high-level security clearance. He did not attend cabinet meetings, the bi-weekly national security council meetings, or Cobra, the government's emergency committee.

meanwhile....
It comes on the day that the law firm which represents News International has been authorised to talk to police and MPs after it sensationally claimed it was gagged by its client.
Harbottle & Lewis had come under renewed pressure to clarify why it did not hand over files to the police while representing the newspaper group.
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2016978/News-World-phone-hacke d-Gus-ODonnell-Andy-Coulson-Downing-St.html?ito=feeds-newsxml

and.......
In evidence to the Commons culture committee, James Murdoch said he believed assurances from Harbottle & Lewis that the emails did not show wider evidence of criminality. But Lord Macdonald, former director of public prosecutions, told the home affairs committee it took him less that five minutes to find evidence of serious offences. "It was impossible to look at that file not to see crime in its face," he said. He went to the News International board this year, which agreed the police must be told.
...Fresh evidence from the lawyers could shed light on News International's failure to give police incriminating material until recently. The files were reviewed in 2007 by the company's legal director, John Chapman, and Daniel Cloke, former human resources director. John Yates, the assistant Met commissioner who resigned this week, told MPs: "the facts appear to be that News International have deliberately covered up" evidence.

I'm sure the police will be busy investigating:

Quote:
What’s in a Name?

by craig on July 20, 2011 12:48 pm in Uncategorized

The police investigation into bribes to police officers by News of the World is called Operation Elveden. It has not identified, suspended or arrested a single bent cop.

What’s in a name? To Norfolk people Eleveden is a notorious bottleneck on the A11, the main road into and out of the county. You can, literally, queue for miles and for hours to get through Elveden in either direction. It is a place notorious to Norfolk for frustration, obstruction and never getting anywhere. I myself have spent a huge amount of time being stuck by Elveden; it is extremely difficult to avoid or get round. Elveden means no progress.

Andy Hayman was Chief Constable of Norfolk before moving down to the Met.

Did the Met name Operation Elveden as a grim in-joke to indicate they would make sure the accusations never went anywhere?

UPDATE

I have just realised I am definitely right. Operation Weeting is the investigation into the News of the World phone hacking itself. Weeting is the village at the southern end of the notorious Elveden traffic jam.

Lies, damn lies

Murdoch’s papers have relentlessly assaulted common truth and decency, but their most successful war has been on journalism itself
I met Eddie Spearritt in the Philharmonic pub, overlooking Liverpool. It was a few years after 96 Liverpool football fans had been crushed to death at Hillsborough Stadium, Sheffield, on 15 April 1989. Eddie's son, Adam, aged 14, died in his arms. The "main reason for the disaster", Lord Justice Taylor subsequently reported, was the "failure" of the police, who had herded fans into a lethal pen.

“As I lay in my hospital bed," Eddie said, “the hospital staff kept the Sun away from me. It's bad enough when you lose your 14-year-old son because you're treating him to a football match. Nothing can be worse than that. But since then I've had to defend him against all the rubbish printed by the Sun about everyone there being a hooligan and drinking. There was no hooliganism. During 31 days of Lord Justice Taylor's inquiry, no blame was attributed because of alcohol. Adam never touched it in his life."

Three days after the disaster, Kelvin MacKenzie, Rupert Murdoch's "favourite editor", sat down and designed the Sun front page, scribbling "THE TRUTH" in huge letters. Beneath it, he wrote three subsidiary headlines: "Some fans picked pockets of victims" . . . "Some fans urinated on the brave cops" . . . "Some fans beat up PC giving kiss of life". All of it was false; MacKenzie was banking on anti-Liverpool prejudice.

When sales of the Sun fell by almost 40 per cent on Merseyside, Murdoch ordered his favourite editor to feign penitence. BBC Radio 4 was chosen as his platform. The "sarf London" accent that was integral to MacKenzie's fake persona as an "ordinary punter" was now a contrite, middle-class voice that fitted Radio 4. "I made a rather serious error," said MacKenzie, who has since been back on Radio 4 in a very different mood,aggressively claiming that the Sun's treatment of Hillsborough was merely a "vehicle for others".

When we met, Eddie Spearritt mentioned MacKenzie and Murdoch with a dignified anger. So did Joan Traynor, who lost two sons, Christopher and Kevin, whose funeral was invaded by MacKenzie's photographers even though Joan had asked for her family's privacy to be respected. The picture of her sons' coffins on the front page of a paper that had lied about the circumstances of their death so deeply upset her that for years she could barely speak about it.

Such relentless inhumanity forms the iceberg beneath the Guardian's current exposé of Murdoch's alleged payment of £1m hush money to those whose phones his News of the World reporters have criminally invaded. "A cultural Chernobyl," is how the German investigative journalist Reiner Luyken, based in London, described Murdoch's effect on British life. Of course, there is a colourful Fleet Street history of lies, damn lies, but no proprietor ever attained the infectious power of Murdoch's putrescence. To public truth and decency and freedom, he is as the dunghill
is to the blowfly. The rich and famous can usually defend themselves with expensive libel actions; but most of Murdoch's victims are people like the Hillsborough parents, who suffer without recourse.

The Murdoch "ethos" was demonstrated right from the beginning of his career, as Richard Neville has documented. In 1964, his Sydney tabloid, the Daily Mirror, published the diary of a 14-year-old schoolgirl under the headline, "WE HAVE SCHOOLGIRL'S ORGY DIARY". A 13-year-old boy, who was identified, was expelled from the same school. Soon afterwards, he hanged himself from his mother's clothesline. The "sex diary" was subsequently found to be fake. Soon after Murdoch bought the News of the World in 1971, a strikingly similar episode involving an adolescent diary led to the suicide of a 15-year-old girl. And Murdoch himself said, of the industrial killing of innocent men, women and children in Iraq: "There is going to be collateral damage. And if you really want to be brutal about it, better we get it done now . . ."

His most successful war has been on journalism itself. A leading Murdoch retainer, Andrew Neil, the Kelvin MacKenzie of the Sunday Times, conducted one of his master's most notorious smear campaigns against ITV (like the BBC, a "monopoly" standing in Murdoch's way). In 1988, the ITV company Thames Television made Death on the Rock, an investigative documentary that lifted a veil on the British secret state under Margaret Thatcher, describing how an SAS team had murdered four unarmed IRA members in Gibraltar with their hands in the air.

The message was clear: Thatcher was willing to use death squads. The Sunday Times and the Sun, side by side in Murdoch's razor-wired Wapping fortress, echoed Thatcher's scurrilous attacks on Thames Television and subjected the principal witness to the murders, Carmen Proetta, to a torrent of lies and personal abuse. She later won £300,000 in libel damages, and a public inquiry vindicated the programme's accuracy and integrity. This did not prevent Thames, an innovative broadcaster, from losing its licence.

Murdoch's most obsequious supplicants are politicians, especially New Labour. Having ensured that Murdoch pays minimal tax, and having attended the farewell party of one editor of the Sun, Gordon Brown was recently in full fawn at the wedding of another editor of the same paper. Don Corleone expects nothing less.

The hypocrisy, however, is almost magical. In 1995, Murdoch flew Tony and Cherie Blair first-class to Hayman Island, Australia, where the aspiring war criminal spoke about "the need for a new moral purpose in politics", which included the lifting of government regulations on the media. Murdoch shook his hand warmly. The next day the Sun commented: "Mr Blair has vision, he has purpose and he speaks our language on morality and family life."

The two are devout Christians, after all.

Murdoch: This scandal has exposed the scale of elite corruption

Cameron wants to bury the collusion uncovered in the hacking revelations but it's part of a growing crisis of official Britain
http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2011/jul/20/scandal-exposed-sc ale-elite-corruption
Seumas Milne - guardian.co.uk, Wednesday 20 July 2011 22.00 BST
The Tory operation to bury the phone-hacking scandal in spin and official inquiries is now in full flow. On his way back from Africa, David Cameron declared it was essential to get the whole business into perspective, echoing Rupert Murdoch's insistence that his competitors had got up "this hysteria". Today, the prime minister chided Ed Miliband for "chasing conspiracy theories" and claimed it was really Gordon Brown who had been in the pocket of the global media billionaire.
Meanwhile, News International pundits and others with their own reasons to stem the flood of revelations have been loudly insisting that the political clout of Murdoch's corporate colossus has been exaggerated. The hyper-regulated BBC is the real media monopoly, they say, and in any case the current fixation with phone hacking has meant no one is discussing bankers' bonuses and the threat of another financial meltdown. This is a "frenzy that has grown out of control", the Daily Mail complained.
But the real frenzy isn't the exposure of the scandal – it's the scale of corruption, collusion and cover-up between News International, politicians and police that the scandal has revealed. As the cast of hacking victims, blaggers and blackmailers has lengthened, and the details of the incestuous payments and job-swapping between News International, government and Scotland Yard become more complex, it's easy to lose sight of the bigger picture that is now emerging.
If it were not for the uncovering of this cesspit, the Cameron government would be preparing to nod through the outright takeover of BSkyB by News International, taking its dominance of Britain's media and political world into Silvio Berlusconi territory. But what has been exposed now goes well beyond the hacking of murder victims and dead soldiers' families – or even the media itself. The scandal has lifted the lid on how power is really exercised in 21st-century Britain – in which the unreformed City and its bankers play a central part.
Murdoch's overweening political influence has long been recognised, from well before Tony Blair flew to Australia in 1995 to pay public homage at his corporate court. What has been less well understood is how close-up and personal the pressure exerted by his organisation has been throughout public life. The fear that those who crossed him would be given the full tabloid treatment over their personal misdemeanours, real or imagined, has proved to be a powerful Mafia-like racket.
It was the warning that News International would target their personal lives that cowed members of the Commons culture and media committee over pressing their investigation into phone hacking too vigorously before the last election. Barely a fortnight ago, Ed Miliband was warned that Murdoch's papers would "make it personal" after he broke with the political-class omerta towards the company. The same vow of silence meant that when Rebekah Brooks told MPs in 2003 her organisation had "paid the police for information", the bribery admission sank like a stone.
The Sopranos style is deeply embedded in the Murdoch dynasty. When the New Labour culture secretary Tessa Jowell broke up with her husband in 2006 as he faced Berlusconi-linked corruption charges (he was later cleared), Brooks took her out, letting her cry on her shoulder – just as News International was hacking into the couple's phone. Jowell has now called in her lawyers, but that didn't stop her attending Elisabeth Murdoch's lavish Chipping Norton party earlier this month, along with David Miliband and other Blairite luminaries. The family demands respect – even from those it has punished.
Of course, the British press has a long history of megalomaniacal, reactionary and criminal proprietors. Some, such as Conrad Black, ended up in prison – or, in the case of Robert Maxwell, would have done if he hadn't died. Others, such as the migrant-and-Muslim-baiting pornographer Richard Desmond, merely emphasise how narrow and dysfunctional media ownership is in Britain.
But Murdoch is a case apart, not only because of his commanding position in both print and satellite TV, but because of the crucial part he played in cementing Margaret Thatcher's political power and then shaping a whole era of New Labour/Tory neoliberal consensus that delivered enfeebled unions, privatisation and the Iraq war. His role in breaking the print unions at Wapping in the 1980s by sacking 5,000 mostly low-paid workers is still hailed in parts of the media as a brave blow for quality journalism.
It was nothing of the kind. The golden age of new titles never materialised, and it's certainly no coincidence that journalists were prevailed upon to resort to systematic illegality in a company that has refused to recognise independent trade unions ever since. Over those years, News International has used its grip on the political class to rewrite media regulation in its own image. As we now know, it has also suborned politicians and the police and operated as a freelance security service – not to expose the abuse of power, but to carry it out.
These revelations should ram home the reality that Britain has become a far more corrupt country than many realise. Much of that has been driven by the privatisation-fuelled revolving door culture that gives former ministers and civil servants plum jobs in the companies they were previously regulating.
But the scandal has also created a powerful opportunity to weaken the unaccountable corporate power that has dominated the British press and create the space for a freer, more diverse media. The Labour leader has naturally been attacked by News International journalists for his call to break up the Murdoch empire and limit media concentration as though he were unaware of the decline of print and the rise of the web. In fact, that shift makes public action more urgent and necessary – and if the Liberal Democrats recognise their own interests, even politically possible.
But several of these opportunities have come and gone. First the official deception of the Iraq war, then the collapse of a deregulated banking system, then the exposure of systematic sleaze in parliament revealed a growing crisis in the way the country is run. Now that crisis has been shown to have spread to the media and police. Official Britain isn't working. Sooner or later, pressure for change will become unstoppable.

Police investigate new computer hacking claims linked to News International

By Jason Lewis, Investigations Editor
http://cryptome.org/0005/fru-murdoch.htm
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/phone-hacking/8642649/Police-in vestigate-new-computer-hacking-claims-linked-to-News-International.htm l
9:00PM BST 16 Jul 2011
A police investigation is taking place into claims private investigators working for News International were involved in computer hacking. The probe was prompted by allegations that Martin McGuinness, the Sinn Fein MP, was a British spy
The investigation is being carried out by detectives from Scotland Yard's Specialist Crime Directorate. It is separate from the phone hacking investigation.
The team of officers from Operation Tuleta are looking at the activities of individuals who were paid by News International, including a firm of private detectives offering "ethical hacking".
Officers are understood to be collecting evidence about the activities of a former Army intelligence officer who is said to have offered hacking services to the journalists.
The probe was prompted by allegations that Martin McGuinness, the Sinn Fein MP, was a British spy. They first surfaced in Irish newspapers five years ago and were vehemently denied by Republicans.
Unpublished documents relating to the claims have now been unearthed by Scotland Yard.
The allegations focus on the use of "Trojan" emails. These involve a hacker sending a computer virus to the target's computer. The virus then allows full access to the computer's contents.
The investigation will examine allegations that information was then written up into memo form and faxed to the News of the World.
It is understood that some of this information was allegedly sent to the News International bureau in Dublin, although it is not known who it was sent to there. The private detectives, including a former member of the Force Research Unit (FRU) of the British Army, cannot be named for legal reasons.
Two of those targeted are believed to be Kevin Fulton, an alleged former British agent within the IRA, and Martin Ingram, a former British army intelligence officer. Mr Ingram, who was a member of the FRU, is the co-author of a book, Stakeknife, in which he disclosed details of the most highly placed British spy in the IRA, saying he was a man called Freddie Scappaticci. Mr Scappaticci denies he was an intelligence source.
The Sunday Telegraph has learnt that Mr Fulton met detectives last week and was asked if information from his computer had ever appeared in print without permission.
Mr Fulton told detectives of material relating to Mr McGuinness that had been stored on his computer.
Mr Fulton had believed that some of the information had been leaked by police who had seized his computer in a raid on this home in 2005. This alleged leak led Mr Fulton to complain to the Police Ombudsman in Northern Ireland, but his complaint was rejected due to lack of evidence.
The new discoveries apparently exonerate the police and suggest the information may have been stolen from his computer by a hacker. Mr Fulton wrote to the police in April alleging that some of his emails had been intercepted in 2006 by people acting on behalf of News International. In response, the Metropolitan Police replied to him: "As a result of the new inquiry being conducted by the [Met] into the unlawful interception of voicemail messages (Operation Weeting) and the various court actions relating to News International, the [Met] has received a large number of inquiries and allegations relating to access to private data that are broader than voicemail interception ...
"The [Met] has set up a small team in order to assess the various allegations that have been made with a view to establishing whether there is available evidence and if it would be appropriate to conduct any further investigation into these activities."
The latest disclosures follow a BBC Panorama investigating into the computer hacking claims.
The programme named Alex Marunchak, a former News of the World executive, as having obtained the emails. He denies any involvement.
In the programme, Mr Ingram said: "The BBC has shown me documents which contained parts of emails exchanged between me and a number of other people while I was living in France and some of these were later faxed to the Dublin office of the News of the World.
"The irony of the illegal procurement of information from my computer is that it was obtained by someone who also once worked for the Force Research Unit in the British Army. This person was being paid by News International to hack into my computer."
It is understood that the officers investigating the computer hacking claims have had no contact with News International.

Interesting that the first mention of phone hacking was by three royal aides in 2005.

Also interesting is that Schillings use this event (about people accessing info re Prince William's injured knee) to justify super injunctions. Schillings now protect the royals and their interests.

When Tony Farrell talks about 'the enemy within' I presume that he means the enemy within our government (the John Adam St Gang, which includes the queen and co).

Interesting that Farrell is now interviewed by the Murdoch press, who set off the publicity for this story on the back of the royal aides' complaints.

Has anyone got any evidence that Tony Farrell has given an interview with the said press?

Tony Farrell achieves mass media recognition:

The Sun


Yes, there is, you refer to it in your post.

Which links to the following article, in The Sun:

John Pilger is quoted above as well, (by Disco Destroyer) who writes for the New Statesman, established by the John Adam St Gang, so if it is the case that the John Adam St Gang are behind this attempt to discredit the government, wittingly or otherwise Pilger is playing into their hands.

Where does it say that he gave them an interview? And regardless they do have to be exposed for what they are: criminals.

And you also omitted:

"We also know that the press have gone on a smear campaign along with it seems J7"

Indeed, it may be yet another 'cut and paste' story. The internet is awash with 'cut and paste' Tony Farrell.

The John Adamn st Gang (aka Committee of 300) most certainly do need to be exposed for what they are - criminals.
