Quotes of the week

Real IRA contact to Suzanne Breen : "You know what co-operation with the PSNI means."

Suzanne Breen to Belfast Crown Crown Court: "I am not prepared to place my life at risk and that of my 14-month-old child and my partner".

Panorama's John Ware, giving evidence on behalf of Suzanne Breen, on the Real IRA: "These guys are the Taliban of the Republican movement, and we need to be clear about that."

Heather Brooke speaking at the Frontline Club: "I don't have a problem with what they (the Daily Telegraph) did. I have a problem with the society that makes the most economical way to get a story is by a cheque book and paying for it rather than playing by the rules and going to court."

Clive James asked by Word magazine about how people will get paid for work on the web: "There are going to be some brilliant young people who aren't going to eat very well. But the same question is facing the whole of the printed media."

Observer media commentator Peter Preston suggests Rupert Murdoch might recruit Telegraph editor Will Lewis to run his UK papers : "It's no outlandish thought. Lewis was business editor at the Sunday Times for three years and Rupert knows him well (and has praised him publicly). He is still only 40, ambitious and nobody's idea of a Telegraph gold watch collector. He was tipped as a possible Wall Street Journal managing editor before Robert Thomson moved in. And his expertise in digital integration is a strong bonus point, too, in a Wapping where non-integration (including the Sunday Times doing its own charging thing) often seems to be the wambly order of the day."
