    As TSR's Chancellor I declare that there is now no longer VAT on anything.

    Just burned £1200 on my car but, having forgotten about VAT, had been expecting less.
    How are you paying for the VAT abolition? Have the EU signed off on it? How will you replace the funding the EU gets from VAT?

    Suddenly Labour's VAT cut to 15% looks helpful eh. The Tories always put VAT up.

    It's more entertaining as he can't answer questions properly. Some of the things on twitter about him are just lulz http://twitpic.com/5si4e6

    When is Brooks being questioned?

    Who are the two people sitting in the Middle of the room facing each other?

    This committee is a farce, why should R. Murdoch be told anything if it can be solved within NI or News Corp Europe and Asia? clearly it is James Murdoch that is at fault here or at the very least Brooks as someone has been lying to someone and Brooks is the most likely.

    I really feel for Rupert, he shouldn't be there as none of this has anything to do with News Corp as a whole but NI and News Corp Europe and Asia of which he does not run day to day.

    And the potential that NI paid part of Coulson's salary whilst at number 10. Not a flat denial of that either...

    Yeah, I hope this isn't true, could cause Cameron problems. Employing him is one thing, having him blatantly acting as an NI puppet is something else.
    Cameron is gonna be mauled in tomorrow's PMQs I think, he really does need to apologize. I am very disappointed by his poor leadership over this; thus far he has behaved well as PM, something I expected to continue.

    I believe she is the next witness to be called before the comitee, so as soon as the Murdochs are finished.

    Which could be all night at this rate lol People are saying they are too soft on Murdoch. Any harder and Snr would have a heart attack and jnr's head would explode trying to decide how best to slip round the question

    Hmm, difficult one.

    So far I don't think Cameron has done anything corrupt/wrong, and if it turns out this possibility is true, I would find that wrong. Yes, employing Coulson was a mistake, but nothing more.

    It would have surprised me if you had suggested this a few weeks ago, I believe Cameron to be a decent man of conviction.

    That said, in the context of this situation, very little would surprise me now =/

    they should be asking about alleged payments to the Met, but it seems they either cant for legal reasons or wont.
