    The biggest thing in the UK news this week is the News of the World (one of News Corporation's papers owned by News International) hacking into the phone of a murdered 13 year old girl and deleting voicemail messages giving her family false hope that she might yet be alive.

    That is a scandal of unspeakable evil yet I'm curious as to the timing of the release of this information. Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation is trying to finalise a total take over of the UK satellite monopoly BSkyB.

    Is there more to it than the truth coming out? Who is gaining here?

    Whatever the answer there is a hell of storm blowing up over here!
