It's descending into a farce - you really couldn't make it up. This was supposed to be a formal inquiry, not a punch up.
Mind you I have to say, having just watched the news, that Mrs Murdoch can certainly land a good right hook!

That was funny. But on a serious side. That was Parliment. Is secuity that poor? What if he was a gunnman, or a terrorist bomber? We would not be laughing so hard then.
You have to question how he got a can of shaving foam into the building - presumably they were all scanned and searched.
Also how did he squirt it onto a paper plate without anyone noticing, especially as the squirting is noisy? I can't see how he could have walked into the room carrying a paper plate of shaving foam?
Also the guy is a well known political agitator, so why was he allowed in?
Deliberate set-up to make Mr Murdoch look ridiculous? If it was it backfired, because his bravery in carrying on after the assault has been applauded (or maybe that was what the set up was for?)
I don't think that being able to slap someone in the face with shaving foam is freedom. An inquiry like that should be able to proceed smoothly and with the respect due to all the participants and the occasion.
Violence is not freedom and both the agitator and Mrs Murdoch should be charged with assault
My question was not how, but the fact it happened. Can, gun, it is all metal. John would know better but do they not have metal detectors there? I would think protecting paliment would be a little important. Maybe not
It's a balance between protecting parliament from the people and protecting the people from parliament.
Too much protection of parliament takes away their accountability.
Mind you, I am a bit surprised that he got a can into the place and then managed to make up a plate without being detected.
If someone sprayed me with something, They'd be lucky to have fingers left.
We missed that bit! The giving of evidence was riveting, Murdoch snr seemed to be ready to dob people in it whilst murdoch jnr spent the whole time and a lot of hot air not answering questions!
They were very taken with the slapping on Channel 4 news and kept replaying it - bet old Rupert takes care not to get on the wrong side of her!
Is James her child or a previous wife's?
I watched the entire inquiry, all 3 testimonies. It went as I said it would, Daddy has no clue. Sonny would dance to not incriminate himself. Though alot of his answers were interesting and forth coming. I wonder how much is true. I am sure we will hear all about it in the media.
his wife is like 40 its true love and not for the money right???
Wow! she must have had Murdoch jnr at like 6months old or something!
Looks like she got him to stop dying his hair orange in the sink. Gotta be true love. What guy's gonna do that for less than love?
Yeah but why is all this breaking open? It's not like no one knew this went on. How come Rupert's under the bus this time?

Do you feel that Mr. Murdoch and his son James should face jail time for allowing their employees listen in on other people? How much time do you think they should get? I personally feel the whole business should be absolved. The fox news, the papers...and they both should spend at least the next...

Ok I am at my end! I seem to be having an issue with HP. Everytime I flag something I end up getting flagged. Yesterday I published my 2nd part in a 3 part series on Jeffrey Dahmer. Ads were taken and I was fine with that considering he killed people, even though I see plenty of serial killer hubs...
