It feels like the public is finding its voice during this crisis. We've responded differently to how we did during the banking crisis or the MP expenses scandal. The mood has somehow felt different. There has been less resignation, less hopeless cynicism, and more appetite for action.
Let's be honest- BSkyB is what this all is about. It is why Rupert Murdoch has flown in to the country, it is why News International keeps on emphasising that a lot has changed in the four years since it last hacked into someone's personal voice messages.
No matter how insane and evil publications like News of the World appear to be -- according to "the facts" -- we can rest easy that noble News Corp empire is about to become a lot more powerful, thanks to Jeremy Hunt.
