Leveson Inquiry (part 9,999) – With friends like this, who needs enemies?

Tory nobs need no help in public portrayal as prats, but that hasn’t stopped former News of the Screws editor and News International chief executive Rebekah Brooks stabbing her close friend David Cameron in the back with a reference today at the Leveson Inquiry to the prime minister’s understanding of ‘textspeak’.
