Remind anyone of the David Kelly thing, or even Princess Diana? According to the Police, who have also been found to be involved in the hacking saga, two whistle blowers in relation to the News Of The World Hacking saga have died. Sean Hoare was dismissed from News Corp because of drinking problems. It has been said that detectives from Hertfordshire police’s major crimes unit are running the investigation because of the high profile of Hoare’s death, which seems to suggest that the normal process is not being followed.
George Webley has also died aged 53 of which the cause is not known. He had also been whistle blowing on NoTW and News Corp.
“Before his death this past May, BBC radio presenter and musician Big George Webley alleged that a News Corp. entity bugged dressing rooms of celebs and politicos as far back as 1990. The allegation, if true, would show that News Corp. had a pattern of bugging/hacking over a long period of time that went far beyond a rogue editor or reporter for News of the World.”
In the article quoted above, George Webley in a phone call John Romano had on April 29, 2011 had apparently made his concerns clear.
“Mr. Webley was quite concerned that he would suffer retribution from Mr. Murdoch’s organization for allegedly revealing this information to the British government during the BSkyB (Sky TV’s parent company) buyout review. Also, it was never fully detailed to me how Mr. Webley found out about the bugging during his years at Sky. In no way did he allege that he was in danger for his life, as was stated in my earlier piece. Mr. Webley had a heart attack in 1996 and likely suffered a fatal one this past May. A full coroner’s report is due to be released in August detailing an official cause of death. What is known is that the whole incident did worry Mr. Webley more than a little bit.”
It’s a question that even the mainstream are struggling to ignore (even if they do say no) so for the police to treat it as not suspicious leaves an alarm bell here and a red flag there in my mind. This can be a coincidence, I accept that, but it’s a rather spooky one if it is. Like the David Kelly investigation before, we will probably always be left wondering. However, the criminal smoke still bellows from the gangster fire that burns in the power structures hidden from our immediate view. The signs show all the time.
