image for Phone Hacking Scandal
The new generation

'Significant new information' is persuading the Police to look again into the allegations of phone hacking by the News of the World.

Former adviser to Tony Blair, Alistair Campbell is certain his phone was hacked. Adding this to Brown and Prescott one wonders if Britain was being overheard by a foreign power lurking at News International.

With Ian Edmondson of the News of World being sacked and Andy Coulson resigning as Cameron's Director of Communications it appears the Sun is not shining too brightly these days.

My mobile phone is seldom used, it is close to qualifying for the Antiques Road Show. Maybe a means of communication called talking to each other face to face may yet have a revival.

Those with permanently bent arms holding a mobile phone to their ears may have forgotten what a normal conversation is like. A new generation has not, in many instances, ever known.

Could we see a revolt against this gabbling society being listened to by a deranged group of people convinced we want to know every word said by anyone though 'important'?

Perhaps it is time to return to normality. We may yet be grateful to the hackers and News of the World for showing clearly that this excessive idiocy of wanting to overhear other people's conversations is very unhealthy.

Personally I find those who drone on throughout train journeys about all their personal craziness, not caring a jot if anyone else wants to hear, are the pits.

Perhaps those people deserve the media that they get.

Make j.w.'s day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
