Sharp Parliamentary sketch in the Independent today by Simon Carr on the MPs' debate about phone-hacking, suggesting the politicians need a few journalists like News International's Rebekah Brooks to investigate what's being going on.
He writes: "So journalists came in for the best rollicking they could manage but it didn't produce a flicker of shame. One particular point is that MPs are just no good at finding out what happened. Their committees and judicial enquiries yack away for days and weeks but after 18 months it emerges they've found out nothing or they've framed their findings so feebly it comes to the same.
"The fact is, Rebekah and four journalists would in a week get everything it's taken the Met and two parliamentary committees three years to discover."
