Rupert Murdoch has launched a bid for full control of Sky TV whilst the Leveson Part 2 investigation into his and son James Murdoch’s knowledge of phone-hacking remain uninvestigated.
The second half of the Inquiry promised to investigate allegations of press-police corruption, particularly the close relationship between senior officers of the Metropolitan police service and executives and journalists at the Murdoch-owned News International, which publishes the Sun and the Times and used to publish the now defunct News of the World.
Leveson Part Two could not proceed in 2011 because criminal trials were ongoing at the time. Now that those trials have finished, the Government have no excuse for further delays.
Watch and share…
