Libertarian. Enjoys politics, technology, music, food and drink.
Leading on from my earlier blog today (“Cameron has lacked leadership and let the left win a damning battle“), the only thing that The Sun (and News International) has left, is to stand up for itself. And after the closure of the News of the World, I can’t imagine they’re willing to let this one go down without a fight.
“THE Sun today exposes the allegation that we hacked into Gordon Brown’s family medical records as FALSE and a smear.
We discovered the ex-PM’s four-year-old son Fraser had cystic fibrosis months after his birth.
We can reveal the source of our information was a shattered dad whose own son also has the crippling disease and who wanted to highlight the plight of sufferers.
And when we approached former Labour leader Mr Brown and his wife Sarah with the story, she gave us their consent to run it.”
