So, is google + going to link up with google buzz?
no plus ones
Luke Waterfield: It seems to be slowing down now. Lots of 'time to draw a line under the whole affair' type editorials. Though I remember they started appearing about 2 weeks into the expenses scandal, and look how that turned out...
Luke Waterfield: On another note - this google plus thing is slowly but surely becoming excellent.
Nick Osborne: My concerns with the #NOTW scandle is a) what it is going to mean for the Met and the police b) what it means if other papers like the mirror get turned over. No one really trusted the red tops, but if it spreads to everyone else, what will that mean? The fact that Yates was running counter-terrorism is bad enough, but what happens if a whole raft of cops get done for accepting payments from the tabloids.
I also hope that Ed doesn't overstretch his position. He's done well so far, but if murdoch rallies, there could be a backlash. He has to win the campaign to end media monopolies.
