    This takes the affair to a whole new level of both immorality and criminality. Hopefully this might shake some of the mroe complacent members of the press and parliament out of their complacency.

    Is it too much to hope that this might scupper Murdoch's BSkyB deal?

    I don't think the hag Brooks is going to survive this one.

    Lead item on the 5Live news. Think this may be tricky to brush under the carpet.

    The BSkyB deal is a done one though.

    This is beyond even what I thought was possible from the red tops. Comment seems almost superfluous, to be honest. What a bunch of cunts

    Scum is being too kind and is insulting to scum.

    (If true of course)

    Glad you said that because I was feeling like a naive bastard for not having expected this.

    What did Cameron say about Vince Cable's comments on Murdoch? "totally unacceptable and inappropriate".

    He's going to need some strong words for this.

    If you don't think it's appropriate to treat News Of The World as a valid publication and a normal member of the 'media family' after today's mindbogglingly vile revelations about their methods, Tweet @talksport (who have NOTW's Neil Ashton coming up on air) to tell them so, or email the studio http://www.talksport.co.uk/radio/kickoff

    ...or text 81089, if you don't mind throwing some pennies their way in the act of complaining.

    Now apparently allegations they targeted the parents of the Soham murdered schoolgirls and Colin Stagg.

    Wow. I'd love to know how people would justify reading it now, never mind supporting it. Truly vile.

    Another NOTW hack on now talking boxing. Rub the Dowler family's faces in it, why don't you.

    Got to be a public enquiry (under a judge, not some Fleet Street "insider") in this?

    E10 - I saw Paul Mason link to the NUJ Code of Conduct. Has the union ever expelled anyone for gross breaches of it, such as this?

    They really are a gang of shitty-arses.

    And would I be right in assuming that the private investigator would have got her mobile number from a bobby?

    This story lead on ITN earlier and I would assume is likely to lead to a wave of national revulsion. For a couple of weeks, like with the Lady Di carry-on.

    The way a reporter on ITN was talking, mind, this is only the start of the unpleasant surprises, as if several other cases are going to lead to trouble for various papers and public figures.

    But this, it really does shock me. Her poor bloody family.

    I watched the news with our mam and dad earlier and our mam reckoned that "they"* had been sniping at Milly Dowler's mother over the period of the story (couldn't think of a better word), I'd never noticed that, but if so, I dunno, I can't express myself properly on this, but it's so low and fucked up.

    I'm used to our press being bastards, I guess one has been become worldly-wise about it, expecting it, shrugging in the main, but what the hell went through their heads - even if no executives commissioned the actual phone-tapping, senior news staff would have seen the copy and understood how it had been obtained.

    And to think the NotW used to sponsor the Met's football team.

    *unspecified media outlets, the general buzz I suppose.

    NHH, I think in the past, yes, but less so now. Not least because these days there are likely to be very many fewer members of the NUJ at a viciously anti-union place like the NOTW.

    I'll try and find out though

    The only thing that will save this going Supernova is The Dowlers reluctance to take this to its legal conclusion. No one would blame them for settling out of court.

    But can you imagine the court case if they didn't settle though? Would the NOTW hire a top QC to put them through the shit they have just been through? Could the details of Milly Dowler's phone become public knowledge because of this?

    This is staggering, explosive.

    Settling out of court wouldn't help the NOTW, would it? The damage would already have been done.

    Currently 4th place on The Times website, underneath a picture of Prince William landing a helicopter.

    Not on the Sun's at all.

    Nothing on the Mirror's website either.

    What a curious oversight.

    Small solace in the fact that Murdoch lost nearly a billion dollars with MySpace, which he dumped earlier this month.

    Only mentioned because it's their modus operandi
