The Guardian notes:
Andy Coulson, the prime minister's chief media adviser, has denied in court that he ordered reporters to "practise the dark arts" by illegally hacking phones and "blagging" confidential information when he was editor of the News of the World.
Coulson told the high court in Glasgow that he had no idea his newspaper had used private detectives to illegally "hack" phone messages from members of the royal family and other targets.
And I don’t believe him.
That’s not a libel.
That’s statement of fact on my part.
