      There is a planned debate on Wednesday. I guess that by not attending today, they could reserve the time to deal with events then.

      In the mean time, public opinion is gathering pace against News Corporation.

      PM's questions are on Wednesday and they all like to be there for that, as they know there is a big audience.

      PMSL - Now I wonder if someone will try and prove he did it deliberately?

      As a Sky user, phone, TV and broadband - how secure would our own phone lines and emails be if the Murdock empire got full control.

      As previously mentioned in this thread, it is mobile phones that they have mostly been hacking.

      As for emails, again they would be just as able now to hack them as after any takeover. Too many people use passwords that are too simple to crack.

      With the mobile phones, too many people left their ansa-phone pins set to the default values.

      Re: Phone Hacking & Sky

      Back in 1994 almost 20 years ago, Roger Taylor (Queen’s drummer) released a solo album called ‘Happiness?’. Track 11 of this album is called ‘Dear Mr Murdoch’ and the lyrics are below. 20 years on and nothing has changed…….

      [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ZHQ4M6IqVs"]YouTube - ‪Roger Taylor - Dear Mr. Murdoch (Japanese Promo Version)‬‏[/ame]

      Dear Mr. Murdoch, what have you done
      With your news of the screws and your soaraway sun?
      You sharpen our hatred
      You've blunted our minds
      We're drowning in nipples and bingo and sex crimes
      How many time must they poke and they pry
      Must they twist and lie?
      Just to add to the grime they even screwed up the times
      Love to kick their **** goodbye oh wouldn't I!

      Dear Mr. Murdoch you play hard to see
      But with your bare-arsed cheek you should be on page three
      And dear Mr. Murdoch you're really the pits
      Bad news is good business, you're the king of the ****

      They stain all they touch, they're real woman haters
      But we're on their trail
      They go straight for the lowest common denominators
      How could they fail? go straight to jail - (no bail)!

      Dear Mr. Murdoch you're a powerful man
      You control half our media whose values don't scan
      And dear Mr. Murdoch we're not so amused
      Just line up the people whose lives they've abused

      Dear Mr. Murdoch what do you know
      With your minions like vultures and carrion crow
      They've sunk just as low as humans can sink
      For profit they tell us how mass murderers think

      And dear Mr. Murdoch you come down from on high
      You even bought up the air waves, you control all our sky

      Dear Mr. Murdoch you're a dangerous chap
      With your jingoist lingo we're drowning in crap

      Dear Mr. Murdoch where are you coming from?
      Getting so hard to tell if you're a yank, oz or pom

      Dear Mr. Murdoch you're really the pits
      Bad news is good business, you're the king of the ****

      Dear Mr. Murdoch you do it with zing
      At lowering the standards you're really the king

      And dear Mr. Murdoch what have you done?
      You're not quite as nice as attila the hun
