Rebekah Brooks

Um.

The Financial Times reports:

“Rebekah Brooks, the former tabloid editor who was cleared of all charges in Britain’s phone hacking scandal, is returning to News Corp to run Storyful, the company’s social media news agency.”

“The return of one of Rupert Murdoch’s closest allies — and a former chief executive of News Corp’s UK subsidiary — has been the subject of much speculation since her acquittal last summer. A recent visit to News Corp’s New York offices sparked talk that she would take a senior role with the company in the US.”

“However, two people familiar with the situation told the Financial Times that Ms Brooks would continue to be based in the UK but would spend time in Dublin at Storyful’s headquarters.”

Did she text the other two party leaders? “I didn’t text Gordon Brown no.” Nick Clegg? “No.”

“How were these texts signed off? Everyone wants to know,”

“He would sign them off ‘DC’ in the main,” says Brooks.

Anything else?

Occasionally he would sign them off LOL, ‘lots of love’, until I told him it meant ‘laugh out loud’ and he didn’t sign them like that anymore. In the main DC I’d have thought.”
