John Whittingdale Tory MP Chair DCMS All Cosy With Elizabeth Murdoch and Les Hinton

John Whittingdale Tory MP
Chair DCMS
There are so many twists and turns in the phone hacking saga that it is impossible to keep up with them all, the latest which will be revealed in full in the Independent On Sunday is that Conservative MP for Maldon, John Whittingdale and chairman of the DCMS select committee which will be quizzing Rebekah Brooks, Rupert Murdoch, James Murdoch etc next Tuesday is a friend of Les Hinton who was until his resignation today from News International, Rupert Murdoch's right hand man for 52 years. Les Hinton has already been quizzed by the committee on phone hacking last year where he categorically stated that "Andy Coulson did not know about phone hacking". John Whittingdale is also a friend of Rupert Murdoch's daughter, Elizabeth Murdoch.

John Whittingdale has also previously warned colleagues to lay off the Murdoch cabal for fear of having their private lives examined and when once asked which media figure he most admires, Whittingdale replied "Rupert Murdoch"!

This link to the Murdochs surely makes Whittingdale's position untenable, how can he possibly quiz "friends" properly, especially when he holds such a torch for Rupert Murdoch's achievements?

Who the hell are you going to find whom are not frends the only Labour MP would John McDonall but being a lefty of the solid socialist I suspect he would dig to deep and that would not do for the Labour Carbal who have sucked up to Murdock either. No good asking Blair, Prescott well perhaps sadly he is to old to know much these days, Tom the hater of News International.

How about a judge perhaps from Iceland

Robert, why are you always so anti labour? If you are a Tory, that's fine but just be honest about it and stop trying to make out you are not, whatever your opinions are you are entitled to them I think you are wrong most of the time, but hey so what. I am a labour supporter and no I do not always support everything they do and by far they are not perfect but they are a damn sight better than this corrupt shower we have in government at the moment led by the arrogant, lying incompetent David Cameron.
