London, UK - Jurors in the Rebekah Brooks and Andy Coulson phone hacking trial heard today how ex-UK Prime Monster Tony Blair played a blinder with a tried and trusted remedy in the form of a semi-official, Hutton Report-style whitewash.
"It worked a treat for me," Blair, 69, told the flame-haired ex-NewsCorpse CEO in a phone conversation just daze before cops busted her on suspicion of perverting the course of justice and other indictable stuff.
Lord Hutton famously got Blair off the hook in an official government cover-up about the suspicious death of WMD expert Dr David Kelly who allegedly topped himself with a blunt pen knife and half a dozen aspirin tabs.
The weapons expert had gone off-radar in the run-up to the Iraq War in a virulent media spat suggesting the UK government's intelligence had been deliberately exaggerated to please disgusting war monger George W Bush.
Kelly's subsequent autopsy findings and crime scene intelligence assessment have been classified for at least 70 years.
