Former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, Opposition Leader Ed Miliband, and current Prime Minister David Cameron were drinking from ‘Chateau Murdoch’ wine…after the phone hacking scandal in the News of the World, you can see!

politicians in Britain count on The Sun to be re-elected. The Sun is most read paper in the UK, and is the same paper I tried to read this morning and didn’t understand it.
It’s painful to compare the situation with Lebanon; Rebekah Brooks, the Editor of the paper doing the hacking into people’s phone, has been arrested this morning.
