Bad News Of The World

The News of the World in 'not being a newspaper any more shocker!'

Yep, the News of the World has been closed down.

I bet Ryan Giggs is regretting the timing. If he held that super-injunction just that little bit longer. Ah, he must be kicking himself. And they way he plays football he's probably missing.

This Sunday's edition will be the last ever. So if you have a year's subscription to their website you'll be pretty miffed.

It comes after the paper was accused of hacking thousands of phones including those of murder victims and the relatives of dead war heroes.

It takes a twisted mind to want to hear the phone calls of victims. I can't stand hearing the phone calls of other people in the same train carriage as me.

News International, which owns the tabloid, announced the decision to close after 168 years after describing the allegations as "inhuman" and as having "no place in our Company".

Really? Not even working with Rebekah Brooks? How can it be that she hasn't been sacked? The staff of the newspaper, who have just lost they're jobs, didn't do any phone hacking, but seeing as Rebecca got promoted, she's safe.

She used to work on The Sun, having it shine out of her backside, according to Rupert Murdoch.

News International chairman James Murdoch said in a statement: "Having consulted senior colleagues, I have decided that we must take further decisive action with respect to the paper. This Sunday will be the last issue of the News of the World."

I suppose there was nothing else they could do. The only way they could've restored trust in the newspaper would've been to sack everyone and employ my dad. He can't even check his own voicemail.

Mr Murdoch said the good things the News of the World does (mainly pictures of Hollyoaks actresses' boobs on a beach) "have been sullied by behaviour that was wrong."

So now they get to sack the people who didn't do the phone hacking while keeping those who were complicit, and close down a newspaper, getting The Sun to run 7-days-a-week, which is a massive cost-cutting exercise.

Justice.

Maybe I'm wrong, maybe that's not how they are looking at it, but I heard a voicemail message earlier...
