    there are several details that make you think that Cameron must have had at least an Idea. When he came to office, It appears that he did not get Coulson put through full security vetting to allow him to look through secret rated government papers, this is pointed to by people as an indication that Cameron knew that the security people would find things that would make him fail. It should also be pointed out that Rebekah Brooks is camerons near neighbour, and the families would often meet up.

    Thatcher and Major are both previous to the current activities, Brown appears not to have been liked by James and Rebekah, and Blairs connections were far more based on his maleability, but who knows.

    All will no doubt become clearer in Module Three of Leveson which deals with Politicians and the press.

      Not that you can read the Met's mind, but are you implying that we are unlikely to see allegations turned into charges against corrupt public servants until after Leveson finishes?

      And finishing Leveson means what, exactly, and is there a projected date for the whatever the finished product is?

      Not to mention Akers' statement that operation corruption is only at its beginning.....

        that Inquiries are designed to go nowhere, but in this case, there was so much public interest, and it appeared to be a panic measure that it might do something.

        The police investigation is running at its own speed. you have several parts, phone hacking, corruption, scottish perjury, Computer hacking, plus up to 20 more operations covering various things that we don't know (might be shadow investigations of other papers)

         the phone hacking is nearly complete, and could see charges brought as soon as  two weeks time, when the first batch of arestees have to return as part of their bail conditions.  the bribery and corruption cases are at an early stage, with masses of paperwork and accounts to trawl through.  You'd think that the Scottish Perjury case won't take that long to sort and the computer hacking is in very early days.

        Leveson has 2 parts, first is the press in general. the second is news international specifically. first part is meant to be over inside a year. 1st part has 4 modules, public and press, police and press, politicians and press, and a wrap up how do   we go forward one if i remember correctly. report will be out after 1st part. then a break while court cases happoen before part 2
