Please remember that Rebekah Brooks has been arrested for questioning - as far as I'm aware she hasn't as yet been charged with anything. Until and unless that happens we'll have no further posts along the lines of "Brooks arrested for corrupt payments to police officers".
I'm curious. How normal is it to arrest someone, yet not charge them. And if someone surrenders thenselves of their own free will for questioning then is an arrest appropriate? Or is an arrest merely a device (in this case) to prevent someone from picking up their marbles and going home when the fancy took them?
I have not heard the old chesnut "I have done nothing wrong" from any of those people under investigation. Maybe they can't say that with a straight face.People who fall on their swords (resign) usually have been 'pushed' by circumstances beyond their control.It now seems (to me) that spin doctors are a thing of the past and Grand Master Chess Players might be employed by governments and big tycoons to get them out of sticky situations.
I cant believe that the Commissioner took a bung of a 5 week holiday from news of the world, had one of his pc's done this he would be sacked and prosecuted hope the Commissioner is investigated and if the evidence there send him to court.
why was he allowed to resign without being investigated first.
