The revelation in today’s Sunday Times, that Rebekah Brooks stands ready to disclose all emails and text messages between her and David Cameron is game changing.
If Lord Justice Leveson really does want to fully undertand the apparatus constructed by Rupert Murdoch’s executives, then the conversations that were meant to be forever private is the way to get there.
Yet is is not right, that only David Cameron is targeted in such a way. If, as it now appears, Brooks has retained meticulous digital records, then her email and text messages between the current PM and Chancellor and all former Prime Ministers and Chancellors should be disclosed to Leveson.
If this is done, then the country really will get to see how Rupert Murdoch operates in Britain.
