Ex-News International chief Rebekah Brooks has taken quite a kicking over the phone hacking affair. Now the latest issue of The Wordmagazine has chosen her as "the worst henchperson of all time", ahead of Alastair Campbell, the Ogrons from Dr. Who, Donald Rumsfeld and Big Vern from Viz.
Joint winners of the The Word's best henchmen of all time are Snoop and Chris Partlow from The Wire.
