What does Tom Watson know that we don’t, about News International?

Following the big announcement yesterday, for me the most striking interview was with Labour MP Tom Watson on Channel 4 News (video below).

Essentially, Tom Watson says that there is far more to come from this cesspit than previously thought, and goes far beyond phone-hacking.

So the question is, what’s next and how do we campaign on it?

Here is a short transcript:

Jon Snow: Tell us, is there something more that you have up your sleeve that you think could be in this dynamic. I mean is there… what is it?

Tom Watson: I think there is more evidence that shows there was more invasive technologies used than just phone hacking. I think we’ll be seeing the use of computer hacking, tracker devices and other forms of covert surveillance. And I think it will cross over to other News International newspapers. And I think there are other rogue private investigators out there we haven’t begun to hear from.

It’s a bit bizarre Jon Snow doesn’t press him on the issue because it means this whole saga could go on for years still and envelop many more big names.

But this also presents a challenge for activists. In taking aim at advertisers during the NotW frenzy this week, we had an opportunity to shape our own narrative and make ourselves heard. It worked.

Making the case and campaigning to block the BSkyB deal won’t be so easy, now the government has essentially made up its mind. If I understand correctly, only Ofcom stands in the way.

So it essentially comes down to what Tom Watson said yesterday. This is a scandal of massive proportions, with corruption, criminal negligence and catastrophically bad judgement (on part of the PM) at its heart. The issue isn’t keeping the story going, but doing so in a way that makes it easier for campaigners to have some impact. I don’t know how that could play out. Your thoughts?

I wont be posting any of that Penn and Teller rubbish, so you are wasting your time sending it. I've seen those videos already and dont think much of them.

You well advised to buy yourself a copy of that great book you are attempting to discredit. That way you might be able to control yourself from telling lies in the House. If thats possible for a politician to do so. Miracles can happen I suppose.

Zoompad said...

Idiot.

Zoompad said...

Hacked on Facebook now. I cannot use my Hotmail account and I cannot use my Facebook account either.

I see.

Well, you lot are wasting your time. I am only a child abuse survivor, and you MI5 clowns are throwing every big gun at me to shut me up. I'm telling you, you can shut me up but you will never shut the Lord Jeses Christ up.

Those Penn and Teller videos are stupid. No wonder you MI5 floozies are so dim watching that crap.

Zoompad said...

You lot are just a gang of big stupid bullies.

You think you are like James Bond 007 and are able to do exactly what you want, do horrible things to child abuse survivors and all sorts, worse things than that, and that noone will find out but you are wrong because the Lord has his eye on you.

You chose the wrong victim, I am a child of the living God, I might be very weak but the Lord my God is very very strong and he loves me very much.

The Lord God Creator of heaven and earth promised that he would look after his children, and he does.

You will always get found out because God is watching you and he never goes to sleep.

Zoompad said...

Well, I am back on facebook again, after being locked out of that site for a few hours.

It's really pathetic that you lot have no bigger fish to fry than me. Pathetic.

Dear Zoompad...

[Verse 1]
You only listen when it suits you
I don't know why I try
I will not explain the facts
'Cause words just float on by
You are always saying that
You think you know what's best
We get so sick of hearing you
So just give it a rest

[CHORUS]
You only hear what you want to
That is so unfair no-one seems to care about you
Now we are talking but
You still hear what you want to
Maybe you should open your ears and
Listen to what people have to say
Still you will not change and
You still hear what you want to

[Verse 2]
I'm talking but you don't listen to me
You will never change and you can't see
What it is you are doing to me
To your friends and to to your family
The people you upset when you close your ears
When you don't want to face your fears
I'm so sick of this game you put me through
This time it is the end of me and you

[CHORUS]
You only hear what you want to
That is so unfair no-one seems to care about you
Now we are talking but
You still hear what you want to
Maybe you should open your ears and
Listen to what people have to say
Still you will not change and
You still hear what you want to

[Solo]

[Verse 3]
You are always saying that
You think you know what's best
We get so sick of hearing you
So just give it a rest

[CHORUS]
You only hear what you want to
That is so unfair no-one seems to care about you
Now we are talking but
You still hear what you want to
Maybe you should open your ears and
Listen to what people have to say
Still you will not change and
You still hear what you want to hear

Well Mr Idiot, you certainly won't be winning any awards for that song.

You could try giving it to Gorgon Brown to sing at the next Eurodirision Song Contest though. Getting him to go on telly to complain about he has been hacked after all the letters he has had off child abuse survivors who have been hacked by the MI5 paedoprotection squad under his watch didnt exactly wring a tear out of my eye, it make me want to throw up.

Zoompad said...

And another thing about your stupid song lyrics, its not true. I HAVE been listening to the Paedorights drivel, I have read plenty of the loathsome pro paedophile literature that is being pumped out all over everywhere.

After reading so much crap I have come to exactly the same conclusion as I did before I read any of it - that the sexual activity between a child and an adult is wicked, ingodly and evil.

You paedos need to learn some respect for Lord God, because at the moment you are running riot. You ought to be ashamed of what you are, and you ought to humble yourself before the Lord and you ought to beg Gods forgiveness for attacking the Lords children and ask him to help you repent and help you to change your hearts. You ought to ask the Lord Jesus Christ to take away your lustful feelings for children. Thats what you ought to do, if you have any sense, because I tell you Lord God has got his eye on you and you are picking a fight with him by attacking his blessed children.
