Foam Pies and Ding Dongs

Well, it all happens in the merry old city of Westminster. Here’s Rupo getting a foam pie in his face during yesterday’s questioning by the culture select committee…

Rupert Murdoch was attacked just as the final questioning session began. The questioner was Louise Mensch, Conservative MP for Corby. Once things had settled down, and Rupo had cleaned himself up and returned to his chair, the session continued. During her questioning, Louise Mensch stated that Piers Morgan, the broadcaster and former editor of the Daily Mirror, had hacked the mobile phones of celebrities. Piers was a bit put out by this allegation and later that day he and Mensch had a wonderful ding dong live on CNN…

According to some press reports today, Louise Mensch did appear to misquote the relevent passage from Piers Morgan’s book (see here). Whatever. Mensch was one of the more rigorous questioners and as such is worthy in my book. Here she is giving Rebekah Brooks a hard time during yesterday’s culture select committee…

Rebekah Brooks: ‘I never sanctioned payments to police’

Editing in: more than a week later, Mensch apologised to Piers Morgan for misquoting him. See here.
