Penny dropping....is Piers Morgan next?

Maybe everybody else thought of this.....or doesn't care......but i was just reminded that Piers Morgan (the Marmite of celeb world) was editor of News of the Screws a couple of years before Rebekah.........

Squeaky bum time in Hollywood, or was 1994 before the widespread use of mobiles and voicemails?

Many people seem to be upset that some phones were hacked. It is despicable and sometimes illegal, but does it really matter? There are far more important things to worry about!

I did wonder how long it would take for the Morgan connection to come to the fore. Can'[t believe that this all happened only when Brooks was in charge.

Call me old fashioned but I do care if my privacy is willfully compromised - would you be okay if someone opened your letters and read them while they were in your post box?

It didn't seem such a big issue when it was celebs....BUT all changed when it was disclosed that Milly Dowler's voicemail was listened to and messages deleted so that others could be left..which in turn left her parents thinking that she was still alive - there is a separate thread on this one. Then throw in the Soham murder victims, soldiers killed in Afghanistan and it all became related to normal folks who hadn't courted publicity in any shape of form.

Just saying.......
