... and we're NOT ONLY talking about the McCanns...
"The Catch", as it happens.
On BBC and on The Guardian
Update, Monday 18th 1700 GMT:
I’ve noticed that some of you have the opinion that Rebekah Brooks’ arrest on Sunday was nothing but a mockery, in order to allow her not to answer some, or all, of the questions put to her in the BRITISH PARLIAMENT to which she's been summoned to tomorrow.
One indicator being that she had one fantastic “flash-trip” of resignation-arrest-release in a period of less of 4 days, including a weekend.
And although she was released on bail, we’re still to know which charges if any, were brought against her.
There MUST have been some sort of charges, otherwise on what grounds could the bail be set on? Because if there were no charges, she’d just be simply released wouldn’t she?
So, like you, I wouldn’t disregard the hypothesis of all being a devious way to avoid answering uncomfortable questions given the utter ARROGANCE that these people seem to be possessed by.
If, and I do underline the IF, that was, or is the case, and tomorrow, Rebekah Brooks is to sit basically silent when summoned tomorrow to the BRITISH PARLIAMENT, let me just address a few words to those eventually responsible for such an ARROGANT and CARELESS decision.
People, DO UNDERSTAND, from the height of your no-longer existent pedestal, that this is no longer about news or faking news, or about blogging vs rags, or even about high finances & stock marketing. Nor about a criminal investigation. All those issues have a right place to be dealt with. NOT the BRITISH PARLIAMENT. If you haven't realized that yet, your "playing" time is OVER.
It's about the BRITISH PARLIAMENT and what it represents, so, if tomorrow Rebekah Brooks doesn’t answer questions you’ll be making a LAUGHING STOCK of it.
Now, it’s up to the BRITISH to show you how tolerant they may be about having their National Symbols so badly mistreated…
So I wouldn’t advise you on doing that. If you did think ever of doing it, that is.
Anyhow, I’ll remain the optimist and say that is all in the head of a few fantasists like myself, because, at the end of the day, who ends up looking more guilty, one who doesn’t answer, or one who defends oneself on some legal technicality to remain silent?A hint. Kate McCann and the 48 unanswered questions.
