Personally, I can't decide what to make of the Andy Coulson phone tapping stuff. It was politically charged stuff. Tories everywhere closing ranks and saying there was absolutely nothing in it, whereas the Leftie bloggers and the Grauniad were all over it. Mostly, I didn't care.
Baroness Warsi was in the news today after saying a few things about alleged vote rigging in the last general election. I'm not going to comment on that just now, but she's also said some stuff about a certain former News of the World editor:
"I have a huge amount of time for Andy... my judgement of Andy is going to be based on my experience of him. I know that when I went through quite a traumatic divorce, and the media fallout from it when my ex-husband went to the papers, Andy was there for me. I am a deeply loyal person and I honestly believe that you judge people on how you find them. I can only judge Andy on what I have found from him and I have always found him to be a really supportive person."
From my research, I learnt that Baroness Warsi was divorced by former husband Naeem after a 17-year arranged marriage in September 2007. Andy Coulson was editor of the News of the World from 2003 until January 2007. Now, she says that her ex-husband went to the papers about it - and she thought in the circumstances, a good place to go for moral support would be to a man who used to edit a newspaper that made a lot of money from people who blabbed about their former relationships.
Baroness Warsi certainly does irony, doesn't she?
