The fact is
(am i the only one to realise this?)
The British people have decided
Rebekah Brooks fate (as they did for Cleggy)
They WANT her to be Guilty
and so she is Guilty.
there is no turning back.
The British have gone into Mob mode
there is no stopping them.
they will have her out in the end.
If she did not have Murdoch's protection
she would be long gone already
Now why he is so inclined who knows
my take is that she is a block to his son and heir
cos after she goes his son will surely follow
