Tom Watson MP Shoots Himself in the Mouth


Tom Watson MP’s desire to see himself quoted in newspapers and interviewed on television totally undermined any desire he might have had to get to the truth behind the phone hacking saga.

His closing comment equating James Murdoch as “the only mafia boss who didn’t know he was running a criminal enterprise” was deeply misjudged and managed at a stroke to render irrelevant anything and everything else he asked of Murdoch, including his conversation with Neville Thurlbeck.

Letting enthusiastic and egotistical amateurs like him ask important questions of people like Murdoch has made a mockery of Parliament and the committee system it relies upon.
