The Hacking Hurricane

Me and My Black Cat are strangely fascinated by the News of the World / Murdoch Empire / Police /Government / Rest of the Media affair.

It could become a full time job keeping up with the blizzard of new nuances that are coming to light over this.

We hope it is not diverting everyone from the proposed NHS reforms and the crocodiles in think tanks who announce the NHS should be abolished. We wonder how much back-scratching and cronyism over the years between politicians and multinationals underlies the NHS reforms.

We hope too, it is not diverting everyone from an impending financial implosion.

However, My Black Cat is just wondering what is really going on behind the scenes regarding the phone hacking affair, and right now she has a wet towel around her head trying to fathom out some kind of conspiracy or other that is evading her.

No doubt too she will be adding to her crazy and colourful Intertwinglement blog which she has been neglecting for months during the rat-catching season.

In the meantime, The Witch Doctor will have a little lapse too and add links to this post as she comes across reading material related to the hacking storm.

She was particularly tickled and bewildered to follow up the links one of her diligent readers placed on one of the comments of her last post. That seems a good place to start:

  1. Thanks for putting all of that together, WD. Will have a read through. I’m trying to pinpoint just exactly when this started and who started it. Do you think it might be the revenge of Vince Cable?

  2. Unfortunately the internet connection here has been very slow over the past few days and so it’s a bit of a pest gathering all the information I intended, but I’ll persevere!

    Not sure where it started, whether it was pubic anger or whether it’s being nagging away uneasily in the minds of some politicians for years. The sun is certainly shining on Vince Cable now.

    At the moment it seems to me to be an excellent example of complex intertwinglements leading to individuals creeping into what might for some turn out to be criminality without really being conscious of it. In fact I was smiling to myself earlier today when someone on TV used the word “intertwined” referring to government, David Cameron especially, and Murdoch’s empire.

    MBC is waiting expectantly for the word “intertwingled” to be substituted by news readers and then she’ll know her spell has worked!

    Many people in this country seem to be able to function pretty well without involving themselves in the fashionable networking / PR cult. Maybe at the end of the day some good will come out of this fiasco.
