I'm hoping this doesn't descend into a competition to see who can make the most intricate tinfoil hat, but: The Leveson Inquiry has now heard that it was unlikely that individuals working for News International (NI) deleted voicemail messages from Milly Dowler's phone. This was the supposed watershed - the action that finally got Murdoch and his empire dragged into an environment where it finally, properly and fuly had to answer for its underhand methods of working. It's led to the closure of the News of the World and some very sticky moments in front of an enquiry for Murdochs Senior and Junior, as well as numerous other NI employees or contractors. And yet we suddenly hear, after all that has happened so far, that NI may not be the guilty party after all. Isn't this all a bit odd? Rupert Murdoch was supposed to have been incandescent with rage over the previous celebrity hacking allegations. He was apparently keen to see compensation to the glitterati limited to £20m. Instead, he's lost a major cash cow and seen a lot of dirty laundry aired. Yet at no stage has anyone from NI mounted a serious campaign to counter the allegations of tampering with Milly Dowler's voicemail messages. Given the amount of money at stake and the ruining of reputations, shouldn't NI have been crowing from the rooftops that 'It wasn't me, Guv'? Opinions?
