So “Big Brother” is actually Rupert Murdoch?

with 2 comments

How will David Cameron react?

I asked in my last post about whether the Conservative leader has the balls to try and emulate David Davis in taking a stand for the individual against the state, and the story in the Guardian about News International’s phone tapping business, although nothing to do with the Conservative party, will tell us a little more about Cameron, who at the mamonet is reported to be “relaxed” about the affair.

Andy Coulson was not working for the Conservatives at the time that these allegations are about, and there are no similar allegations about his activities at CCHQ, but the big trouble is that Cameron’s trusted advisor is about to become the story courtesy of one John Prescott. As far as advisors go, Coulson has pretty much managed to stay out of the headlines since he left the News of the World, unlike some of Labour’s spin doctors, now though Labour’s machine could well make a co-ordinated move to drag his name through the mud.

Cameron may not be quite so relaxed by tomorrow and pundits will be observing to see what his reactions will be. Will he stick by Coulson or will he take a dim view of the phone tapping allegations? Despite talk of rolling back some of Labour’s “Big Brother” legislation it may come as something of a shock to learn that “Big Brother” is actually a newspaper and media magnate – time to call in 007?
