Lord Falconer admits New Labour was "Too Cosy" with Murdoch

BBC Radio 4 Today programme's interview with Blair's former flatmate and buddy Lord Falconer gets a mention in the Evening Standard tonight, read here. A quote:

"I do worry now that we were too keen to curry favour," the former Lord Chancellor said on Radio 4. "It's not remotely inconceivable that because the politicians thought it was okay to court News International, other public officials followed. I don't mean the explicit corruption that Deputy Assistant Commissioner [Sue] Akers described yesterday. I mean the much-too-cosy relationships that were formed where... what went onto the political agenda or what was reported about what the police did was determined by that relationship."

There is a long and tortuous road to follow from that tiny step in the right direction!
