VIDEO Added - Rebekah Brookes on Madeleine McCann review and front page letter to David Cameron

Post by Guest on 11.05.12 13:16





Wow, interesting stuff on leveson just (all from my notes therefore not word for word, and my be slightly innacurate.........

About serialisation......

Jay........ How much did you pay? A million pounds we've been told.

RB........... nothing like that, half a million maybe.



Re the review....



Jay.......... Home Sec was told if she agreed to review, the front page letter would not run.

RB........I don't believe there was any threat.



Leveson..............Were you part of a strategy putting pressure on the Govt putting an implicit or express threat?



RB...... Threat to strong a word, persuade is better.



RB..........It might have been my idea to do the letter on the front page I can't remember.



Jay......Govt. yielded to your pressure, it took about 1 day.



Jay ......It also chimes with the commercial interest of your papers.





Some tweets.......



Alan Page‏@beachcomberpage

#Leveson Sheer madness. It's perfectly reasonable for a paper to threaten to keep up publicity on a subject - Madeliene McCann questioning



oliver wright‏@oliver_wright

Fascinating exchanges #leveson. Jay & Leveson pushing Brooks on whether she threatened the Government over fresh McCann review.



IndexLeveson‏@IndexLeveson

Brooks says she did not tell Cameron she would put Theresa May on front page of Sun every day until McCann review launched #leveson

jenni beattie‏@jennibeattie

Persuasion=threat I don't think so #leveson



Tim Ireland‏@bloggerheads

Ah. Not threats. Persuasion. #brooks

snipped from the Guardian..........





12.57pm: Jay suggests the government yielded to Brooks's pressure to reopen the McCann investigation. "It only took about a day," he notes, drily.

Brooks insists that this was a worthwhile campaign.

12.55pm: Lord Justice Leveson intervenes. He asks whether Brooks was involved in a strategy to threaten No 10 in order to obtain a review of the Madeleine investigation.

"I was certainly part of a strategy to launch a campaign in order to get a review for the McCanns," Brooks says, disputing that it was a "threat".

Leveson: "Give me another word for it, would you?"

Brooks: "Persuade?"

Leveson appears unconvinced.

12.52pm: Brooks says she did not take the McCann issue up with Downing Street.

Editor Dominic Mohan or Tom Newton-Dunn, the Sun's political editor, will have spoken to No 10 or the Home Office about reopening the Madeleine investigation after the Sun's campaign, she says.

Was there an ultimatum or threat to the home secretary?

"I'm pretty sure there will not have been a threat, but you will have to ask Dominic Mohan," she says.

Jay says he has been told the Brooks intervened personally with the prime minister and said the Sun would put Theresa May on the front page every day until the paper's demands were met.

Brooks says that is not true. "I did not say to the prime minister we would put Theresa May on the front page every day. If I'd had any conversations with No 10 directly they would not have been particularly about that," she adds.

12.49pm: Brooks is asked about the serialisation in the Sunday Times and the Sun of a book by Kate McCann, the mother of Madeleine.

Gerry McCann told the inquiry that they were initially "horrified" about the serialisation, but were later convinced after News International pledged to back their campaign if they agreed to the serialisation.

Brooks can't remember how much News International paid for the book serialisation.

"Hundreds of thousands. It wasn't £1m. Half a million maybe?"

She adds: "I had always got on very well with Gerry and Kate McCann. I think if asked they would be very positive about the Sun. In this case I thought Dominic Mohan's idea to run the campaign, this review of Madeleine's case by the home secretary, was the right thing to do … I don't think I spoke to Theresa May directly. Dominic [Mohan] may have done."

Verbatim of Rebecca Brooks and Leveson inquiry

Post by Newintown on 11.05.12 14:11

I was typing as Rebecca Brooks was speaking. I got most of the words down, I missed a few bits out as my "w" kept getting stuck so held me up. I hope it makes sense. RB = Rebecca Brooks. LE - Leveson Enquiry. Perhaps someone may be able to rectify any glaring errors -

LE - G McCann, stated at Leveson enquiry NI bid for the rights. RB – NI was committed to campaign and the search for Madeleine. LE – how much did you pay the McCanns for the serialisation. RB – I can’t actually remember, but it could have been half a million pounds.



LE – your intervention was successful in getting a review of the case, can you remember anything about that intervention. RB – to just go back the reason I was involved, 2 newspapers were interested. I left it to the 2 editors to decide their approaches, the Sun won the rights to print. I got on very well with K & G McCann throughout their incredible traumatic time and if asked they would be positive about the Sun, Dominic Mohan (Sun editor) was to run campaign to get review, I didn’t speak to Teresa May directly, pretty sure Dominic Mohan may have done.



LE - when you were discussing arrangements with the McCanns you asked if there was anything else they wanted. RB – they wanted a UK review of case. LE - your answer being is that all? RB - I may have said it more politely, is there anything before ending this meeting, we had been going through a list of issues that K & G McCann wanted to be assured of before we went ahead with serialisation. LE - did you take it up with David Cameron that he should get SY to do review as NI helped him in last election.



LE - The Sun wanted immediate results and a letter would be printed all over the front page asking for a review if DC agreed. The Home Secretary was told if she agreed with the review the Sun would not run with the review but if the Secretary of State did not answer in time and you would run with the letter. You don’t believe there was any conversation or threat to the Secretary of State, is that right? RB - I don’t believe there was any threat, my job was to research and to do the deal on the book. LE - you then intervened personally that unless the PM ordered the review by the MET the Sun would put the Home Secretary on the front page every day if the demands weren’t met. RB - I didn’t speak to No 10 or the Home Office until after the campaign had been won and it came up, I spoke not with the PM but with one of his team. LE - you directly intervened and warned him that unless there was a review by the PM the Sun would put Teresa May on the front page every day unless you give the review. Were you part of a strategy that involved your paper putting pressure on the government with this sort of implied threat? RB - I was certainly part of the strategy to launch the campaign to get a review, I think the word threat is too strong. LE - Give me another word for threat. RB – persuasion. LE - define what the strategy was. RB - The McCanns were deeply upset that there hadn’t been a review, you only had to read their book to understand the trauma they’d been through. Dominic M went away and constructed the campaign, it may have been my decision to do the letter, I can’t remember. LE - do you know how it came about that the review was ordered. RB - I can’t remember, I remember Dominic telling me the review was going ahead. Dominic said the Sun had won and as a result of its campaign the PM was opening the files. LE - The McCanns had won the campaign. Was it not a case study in the power by you, I’m not saying the end result was not right or wrong, I’m not saying it should not have been done, the campaign was the right thing to do. RB - we supported the McCanns to get a review before the election, and the Home Office clearly thought it was a good idea too. LE - Government yielded to your pressure, it took all about a day. RB - Perhaps they agreed with the argument. LE - the campaign has cost £2m some people may say that the money could have gone elsewhere. RB – the review chimed with our readership, the politicians were convinced the McCanns were correct. LE - it also chimes with your paper that it sells papers. RB - the serialisation of the book was good for the Sunday Times, I’m not sure how the campaign was good for other sales.

Bear in mind that Gerry was a guest at the Sun Police Bravery awards in July 2007, Rebekah Brookes was present at those awards.

RB is suffering from selective memory. She can remember CLEARLY every meeting, what was said, and who said it, when it comes to Labour politicians, but when it comes to Cameron's cronies, she "can't remember" or "I am not sure". And I am not a Labour supporter.

I was SPEECHLESS listening to it and trying to type it all at the same time.

I was gobsmacked that RB had read the bewk and believed every word. Pity she hadn't read the PJ files first. I also find it unbelievable that a newspaper can pay 2 people who may be involved in the disappearance of their child half a million pounds not really knowing whether they were involved or not.

Poor, poor Madeleine. RB should be totally ashamed of herself. I hope she gets everything coming to her. I doubt she had sleepless nights wondering about what happened to Madeleine. Her career was too important.

Wasn't she married to Ross Kemp/Grant Mitchell out of Eastenders? Maybe she believes all the Eastenders storylines and the McCann case is her real-life soap opera.

It's unbelievable isn't it. I listened to it all and couldn't believe what I was hearing. A government pushed into a review by a newspaper!! I hope they get this Dominic Mohan (spelling?) in to the Leveson inquiry to see what he says. Jay seems to have got his info from somewhere about the threats of putting the Home Sec. on the front page every day for a week. She mentioned him(Dominic Mohan) on a couple of occasions as the one of those who was in touch with No.10 and Home Sec. The whole thing stinks.

Jay did mention in the 3 hours I sat through, can't remember who they were talking about, that he was not going to reveal his source of where he gets his information from, and I think RB retorted with more or less the same thing.

P.S. I got up early this morning to do some housework, I still haven't started and it's 2.40 p.m. Oops!

What a good thing that this stinking cesspit is now out in the open,and the McCanns are now seen to be linked to the whole horrible lot of it. Well they do say like attracts like.
Jay is questioning RB on the issue of Gordon Brown's child's health problems, he and Leveson are not putting up with any of her polished nonsense. I have to laugh at her prim and proper outfit........she will not reveal her source for this info.....Leveson seems convinced the medical records were hacked. She is on the spot, Leveson is raising his voice in irritation at her attempted evasions. She is denying the hacking of course.

I've just reread some of this discussion at the Leveson Enquiry and the bold paragraph above stood out. I wonder what the list of issues were that K & G McCann wanted to be assured of.


RB had no qualms about some of the things she had printed in her newspapers about other people, so what was she holding back about the McCanns.

Anyone hear RB telling Leveson that she would not use such a tone, or words to that effect? She's trying to be such a lady, but read what her former husband, Ross Kemp has said about her. Here's a link:

It is also interesting to consider why this is being put in the open. These are powerful players being dragged across the coals, who are intimately linked with senior government figures both past and present. This hasn't just happened, it is not due to some natural course of due process, because we know things do not work that way. For Brookes, Murdoch et al to be getting this public slapping, there had to be some Political process (capital 'P' Politics, not the Punch-and-Judy stuff for public consumption) behind it. Does this indicate a power-play of some kind taking place beneath the surface?
I wonder if killing Gareth Williams was an outrage too far?

I thought I heard right at the beginning of the discussion on the McCanns serialisation to the book, it was said that the deal with the book publisher excluded serialisation, (may have misheard) so how did they manage that then? Does the publisher then have any comeback?

The McCanns' stated they initially didn't want the book serialised but changed their minds (or Rebekah - Gerry's pal) helped them do so. She was apparently instrumental in the agreement with Harper Collins to get the book serialised.

I am not against newspapers exposing scandals etc and putting pressure on Government to do reviews. But this case is different. Here we have two people with a missing daughter, former suspects during the investigation, who have not been cleared of all suspicion. When the Government responded to the letter almost immediately, nobody could understand it. Now we know why. They had been threatened. What a mess!

Far from this newspaper exposing a scandal, they ARE the scandal!

In the Epilogue weren't the McCanns whinging about the Press? Dear oh dear!

Let's hope that the next accounts show the £1/2M from NI.

Thing is the whole exposing scandals thing is phoney too - publicists such as Max Clifford work at dishing out stories that will sell in exchange for keeping other stories quiet. Apparently Simon Cowell uses his services quite heavily. So it's not like these papers are, as they would have us muggles believe, the last bastion of truth. No, they CHOOSE which scandals to run with. They sit on probably 10 times as many scandals as they reveal.

And that's a dangerous amount of power for anybody to have - and Murdoch's empire has it.

I imagine the £ signs started flashing in front of their eyes. Who would want to miss out on a half a million £ payout. They were on their way to being millionaires, like many of the people they seemed to be rubbing shoulders with. Keeping up with the Joneses, it's called - or Browns or Blairs or Camerons et al.

Rebekah Brooks at Leveson Brooks denies threats over McCann review

Last updated Fri 11 May 2012UK

Leveson Inquiry Rebekah Brooks David Cameron Rebekah Brooks denied claims she threatened the Government that The Sun would put Home Secretary Theresa May on the front page of the newspaper every day if there was not a review into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann. She did admit that The Sun may have attempted to "persuade" the Government to order a review.

http://www.itv.com/news/update/2012-05-11/brooks-denies-threats-over-mccann-review/

It will be very interesting to see if they call this Dominic Mohan, and also what David Cameron is going to say about this when he appears. I think Theresa May is also appearing. Can't wait for their versions.

Rebekah Brooks at Leveson Brooks denies threats over McCann review

Last updated Fri 11 May 2012UK

Leveson Inquiry Rebekah Brooks David Cameron Rebekah Brooks denied claims she threatened the Government that The Sun would put Home Secretary Theresa May on the front page of the newspaper every day if there was not a review into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann. She did admit that The Sun may have attempted to "persuade" the Government to order a review.

It will be very interesting to see if they call this Dominic Mohan, and also what David Cameron is going to say about this when he appears. I think Theresa May is also appearing. Can't wait for their versions.

Jay must have got the information from somewhere, I doubt he would have spun it out of thin air. It's a HUGE revelation against NI so I doubt they weren't going to say Yes, we did do that. As I see it, the Murdochs and RB seemed to be running the government, whichever goverment was in at the time, what they say goes, unless of course a rival newspaper has made it all up to discredit them.

It still doesn't say much for RB's moral judgement when it comes to the disappearance of a 3 year old girl. Who would sell their soul to the devil to get the exclusive on the parent's "version" of the disappearance of their child, seeing they hadn't been officially cleared of any involvement.

The Home Secretary could have made it a resignation issue giving Cameron a way out. That she chose not too is yet another betrayal of Madeleine.

If DCI Redwood has revealed one word of the Leics Police documents to the mccanns he has breached a court order obtained by the police and the attorney general, he has broken the law.
