    Eight held in corruption probe !

    Post by papa_umau on Sat 11 Feb 2012, 1:14 pm

    Five employees of The Sun, a serving Surrey Police officer, a serving member of the armed forces and a Ministry of Defence employee were arrested today over allegations of inappropriate payments to police and public officials.

    As many of these people are senior members of the Sun newspaper and the other departments, it has been suggested that this is going to turn out to be the worst case of corruption practices that has ever been brought in British courts.

    Read more about it HERE and come back and tell us what you think.

    Yes, Angie, while it was only superficially reported on the news last night, this story is going to run and run. Murdoch was said last night to be right behind the Sun Newspaper and that he was not going to close it like he did the News of the World.

    We shall see about that one I think.

    Personally, I'd like to see the whole Murdoch empire collapse, and take Rupert and James with it.

    Cheers, HG

    Yes, my dear, they are there to make load'sa money and nothing else.

    I doubt if either of them have any idea what the word integrity means.

    Now we are hearing that Murdoch is planning to bring out a Sun newspaper on Sundays.

    I bet that that will just be another "red-top" like the News of the World used to be and it will be just as awful as it has always been.

    I, for one, will certainly not buy it.

    Yes Angie, I have already seen adverts on the telly that says that this Sunday The Sun will be available to all.

    I guess that it must have been an easy thing to do to just change the red banner at the top of the News of The World to The Sun red-top.

    All of the machinery for producing a new Sunday paper is already there and now Murdoch will be able to re-employ the numbers of journalists and technicians and printing staff that he wants in order to put out this "new" Sunday tabloid.

    I might be wrong, but all the changes they are going to have to do is to change the red-top banner from: The News of the World to SUNDAY

    Nothing much will have changed inside it I bet !
