Is Britain or the USA in a worse moral state at the moment?;recently_viewed

This gives an interesting perspective on how American more or less progressive opinion thinks about Britain - mediated through Mary Poppins apparently: 'We drop our consonants when we are 'elping 'eo'le' - you'll have to watch it to get this probably. 

But this is a very complete introduction to the key points of the phone hacking scandal.  It only omits one dimension I'm keen on - the link with Boris Johnson - too bad!

Great quote: 'Do you know how hard it is to disgrace a British tabloid?'
