London, UK - In a spooky nod to the protector of lost causes whose feast day falls on 28th October some British Justice Ministry wag has moved the start date of Rebekah Brooks' NewsCorpse hacking trial to St Jude's Day this Monday.

Flame-tressed ex-media diva Brooks and former Prime Ministerial spin doctor Andy Coulson are in the Old Bailey dock with a dozen or so ex-work mates accused of an industrial scale phone hacking rampage.

Plus attendant cover-up.

"Makes the NSA's global bugging ops look like chickenfeed," the litigation editor at online spread betting site Aintgottaprayer.con commented, "unless of course the Brit phone buggers were bugging the US buggers. Uh?"

Other omens on the Brooks/Coulson horizon are reports of the deadliest hurricane since 1987 to hit Southern England on Sunday night in what Wiccans are interpreting as a portent of some imminent major international fuck-up.

Rupert Murdoch's divorce lawyer's cell phone has been disconnected since Friday night.

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