News International may have libelled Christopher Jeffries, who was arrested in connection with the murder of Joanna Yates. He is now hopefully on track to get massive compensation for articles which found him guilty when he had not even been tried.

Thus to find a reporter on behalf of News International hacking a phone of missing schoolgirl Milly Dowler and then deleting her messages guilty before a trial may be equally wrong.

The difference is that Jeffries on his own had no chance of immediately dealing with the allegations against him in the media. The reporter, meanwhile, with one of the most powerful press barons in the world behind him, has every opportunity of insisting on innocence until guilt is proved.

But the Government is at hand to sort out this problem. Give Rupert Murdoch more power so that, eventually, he can obtain a media monopoly and find people guilty when he wants to and can delete all evidence that might question his own part in nefarious practice.

So the Hunt is on! Who could possibly be so beneath contempt to allow Murdoch the freedom to end press freedom?
