Here’s Statement #1, dated September 2009.
“Concerns about News of the World hacking are codswallop that looks like a politically-motivated put-up job by the Labour party.”
Statement #2, dated July 2011.
“It is unbelievable that victims of some of the most odious crimes in recent years might have had their suffering prolonged and intensified by such blatant intrusion into their lives. If true, it suggests that there was no limit to the callousness of the journalists and provate investigators involved. And if some police officers were indeed paid as part of this process, there is only one word for this: corruption”.
So who made these statements?
Yes, you guessed it: Boris ‘Bollinger’ Johnson, currently Mayor of London.
