With now at least 20,000 people claiming their phones were hacked by News of the World journalists, it is becoming clear that Solicitors representing 'victims' are going to have a field day.
Clients attracted by no win no fee offers are joining a queue of disgruntled people who have had their private lives invaded.
The cost to Murdoch of paying off the hacked is causing consternation at Wapping. However a primary target for a massive sell off by Murdoch is Sky.
This will worry David Cameron, George Osborne and Jeremy Hunt. Hunt is in hiding whilst Osborne and Cameron are talking to the BBC about raising the licence fee.
Few have been able to contact Rupert Murdoch but your intrepid reporter knocked on his door and was given an exclusive interview.
'I am not saying anything' said Murdoch to my questions, interspersed with 'no comment'. I suddenly realised that the only reason Murdoch was seeing me was that he thought I was from the Police.
He obviously thought that the sudden lack of contact between his spokesmen and the Police due to his financial crisis had resulted in my questions. Once I had realised the situation I asked Murdoch about the internal inquiry at the 'News of the World' that had found no more hacking journalists there. This time I got a reply - 'We followed all police procedures'.
