    Default Rebecca Brooks & Charlie Brooks

    Does anyone think that there will be less 'pats on the back' from certain Horsey publications now that both Rebecca and Charlie Brooks have been arrested today?

    Not going to be a tricky one.

    Either she was 'inefficient' (at best) and knew little about what went on or she did know exactly what went on and furthermore sanctioned matters.

    Simple "Would you have a 'stupid inefficient lady' run a newspaper or would you have a sharp minded one?"

    I know what I think.

    Don't quote me but I think suspicion of perverting the course of justice was mentioned on the racing today as the reason for questioning.

    Rather amusing that they've chosen today to arrest them

    Naive Editors - according to Janet George......?

    The Brooks' were not arrested for going for a hack with Cameron, but for sanctioning the phone hacking of murdered victim Millie Dowler, 7/11 victims etc...

    Take it from one who knows, Editors DO know what goes on.

    Glad to see that Ms Brooks has finally resigned as a school governor.

    I went to see the school as a potential school for my child and questioned the head as to her suitability as a governor in light of the Milly Dowler case in particularly.

    Personally, I don't see how she can't know what was going on.

    Personally, I was very surprised to see Horse & Hound congratulate her in writing on the birth of her child. Not such bad taste had she actually given birth herself, but a surrogate had a baby for her..

    Hope it wasn't one editor keeping in with another....oops!

    They are very similar editors. I wrote to the editor of H and H to complain about the contents of an article (Graham Fletcher's comments about the French strikers and world war II - published in H and H on Armistice day). The response? - He was only Joking. I am a very busy person and do not have time to check everything that goes into Horse and Hound each week.

    Probably out to lunch with mrs Brooks.
