At todayâ€™s Prime Ministerâ€™s Questions, Ed Miliband, called on David Cameron to set up a public inquiry into the phone hacking allegations and to look at the wider ethical questions in British print journalism. Ed Miliband has outlined his views on the phone hacking allegations in a blogpost, calling these claims â€śgrotesqueâ€ť. The News of the World is alleged to have hacked into the phone of murdered teenager Milly Dowler, causing extreme hurt and pain to her family and friends. It has also emerged that families of victims of 7/7 might also have had their phones intercepted, which plunges the whole saga to new and more depressing depths.
Now is the time to get to the truth and for prosecutions to be bought by the police if it is found illegal activities have occurred.
