Bribegate could become the biggest corruption scandal in British history « News Alliance UK
The Bribegate scandal (a term hated by The Sun newspaper) has now leapfrogged Hackgate but came to prominence on the back of the phone hacking debacle.
The Met are fixated on The Sun newspaper and News International at large. But their preoccupation has been tagged a “witch-hunt” and indeed it will be if the police do not widen the ambit to other newspapers.
In the phone hacking scandal it is clear the police do not want to investigate other rags involved in the invasion of privacy trade. The Met have thrown all their resources into the attack on Wapping. Why?
News International caused the Met more embarrassment than connection with any other media organisation. Concentrating on NI creates the impression that something is being done to clean up the Met.
Making a few arrests is not a serious attempt at eradicating corruption, it is mere tinkering with the core problem for the sake of public relations. “Draining the swamp” is not peculiar to The Sun either, it’s an Establishment issue full stop.
