Britain's Metropolitan Police have informed Lord Prescott of 'significant new evidence' they uncovered in their probe into to his phone hacking claim.

I'm not sure Prescot's got much to worry about. Even GCHQ would be hard-pressed to decypher his conversations.

You appear to be under the impression - like a lot of people - that it was his phone that was allegedly hacked. I was not, it was his voice-mail stored on the computer at the service provider and anybody can listen to that if they have his phone number and voice-mail pin. For Orange see click here I dare say the others have a similar arrangement.

I think you'll find, if you bothered to face reality, the police are treating it as a hacking case. It's still illegal to steal a pin number. Plus there's lots of others, including celebrities who are in the same boat as Lord Prescot click here

The case was so significant that Andy Coulson had to resign.

But it wasnt's his phone that was hacked. That's the point I am making - if anything was 'hacked' it was the computer at the phone provider and the hacking could have been as easy as puting in his phone number and a 4 digit pin.

"There was no evidence yet that voicemail had been hacked, police said"

The hacking situation really has escalated now, hasn't it? It makes some silly comments look even sillier now.
