A truly extraordinary performance by Andy Hayman – who was, before nipping off to work for News International two months after leaving the Metropolitan Police, responsible for the safety of our realm and counter-terrorism. he did not say… “You slaaaag..” but he certainly gave a good impression of his suitability to appear in a re-make of The Sweeney…
His response to being asked if he had taken bribes from News International is a classic.
Simon Hoggart summed it up rather well..
Andy Hayman stars at phone-hacking committee session
Coming up tomorrow…
#WithoutPrejudice podcast tomorrow night with @John_Cooper_QC @cashjoanne @davidallengreen @carlgardner #NoTW – The Leveson Inquiry et al… and the possible criminal law implications for hackers, corrupt police and liability, if any, under s. 79 RIPA et al for News International and employees.
I also hope to do a Without Prejudice special with a US lawyer and professor to discuss the legal implications in the US for News Corporation – if any.
On Friday – I will be doing a Without Prejudice special with a well known MP to get a parliamentarian view on the extraordinary events of this week.
