Now, here's an ironic thing...Guardian Assistant Editor David Leigh, who has been part of his paper's excellent phone-hacking expose team, has admitted, er... phone hacking.

And he confesses: "There is certainly a voyeuristic thrill in hearing another person's private messages."

He wrote this in a Guardian website article in 2006, just after News of the World royal editor Clive Goodman had admitted phone hacking and was awaiting his jail sentence.

"I've used some of those questionable methods myself over the years," wrote Mr. Leigh. "I, too, once listened to the mobile phone messages of a corrupt arms company executive - the crime similar to that for which Goodman now faces the prospect of jail."

Mr. Leigh justifies his hacking because he was trying to expose bribery and corruption, not tittle tattle.

He also admits blagging, phoning Maggie Thatcher's son Mark at 10 Downing Street and claiming to be a Middle East fixer with whom Thatcher was allegedly involved in a business project.

A Guardian spokeswoman told the Metro newspaper: "The Guardian does not and has not authorised phone hacking."

Blood and cadaver alerts
dismissed by UK Government

Retired DCI Gonçalo Amaral: "The English can always present the conclusions to which they themselves arrived in 2007. Because they know, they have the evidence of what happened - they don't need to investigate anything. All this is now a mere 'show off'."

Retired murder DCI Colin Sutton: "I would also like to make the point that Operation Grange was so restricted from the start as to be destined to fail."

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley made public on national TV that Operation Grange is a complete fraud.

Ex-DCI Andy Redwood had a "revelation moment" on BBC's Crimewatch on 14th October 2013 when he announced that Operation Grange had eliminated the Tanner sighting - which opened up the 'window of opportunity', in accordance with their remit, to allow the fake abduction to happen.

Despite "irrelevant behaviour" from blood and cadaver dogs in the McCann's apartment, on Kate McCann's clothes, and in the car they hired three weeks after Maddie disappeared, Ex-Chief Inspector, Ian Horrocks, said: "The thought that Kate and Gerry McCann had anything to do with the death of their daughter is frankly preposterous."

Gerry McCann called for example to be made of 'trolls'. SKY News reporter Martin Brunt doorstepped Brenda Leyland on 2 October 2014. She was then found dead in a Leicester hotel room. Brenda paid the price. She paid with her life.

Ex-Deputy Chief Constable, Jim Gamble QPM, congratulated SKY reporter, Martin Brunt, on twitter for doorstepping Brenda Leyland on behalf of Gerry McCann.
