A very telling interview with Rebekah Brooks at the Leveson Inquiry in Britain. Looks like the power elite are going to make a sacrifice of Rebekah Brooks and her partner to appease the public’s desire for justice. Meanwhile the Murdochs are long gone & Cameron is on show tomorrow. The questions are what does Rebekah know, and will she use it against Murdoch and Cameron now that she faces possible prison time?
“Give me another word for threat” asks Lord Leveson.
“Persuasion” responds Rebekah quickly.
What is clear is that if average member of the public had tried to threaten/black-mail people, or bribe policemen they would be in serious trouble. But when its “News International” involved, everyone looks the other way.

She thought she was above the law, she thought the end justified the means, she thought she was an untouchable powerbroker #RebekahBrooks
