After three hours of cross-examination in the high court in the Strand it was still obvious, except perhaps to the witness, that the Metropolitan police were being wildly inappropriate when they employed Andy Coulson’s former deputy at the News of the World as a £1,000 a day PR adviser, especially one who turned out to be still flogging police stories to his old papers.
But it was more obvious than ever why the Met must have thought it was a good idea. By the end of the session the great schmoozer was generously advising Judge Leveson on how to write his report on better media regulation. Good advice it was too, just what Leveson needs. But no, it would be inappropriate.
