Rebekah Brooks has been arrested by officers investigating allegations of corruption and phone hacking, according to Sky sources.
The 43-year-old went to a London police station by appointment and is being held on suspicion of conspiring to intercept communications and corruption allegations.

Operation Weeting has been launched to investigate claims that newspaper journalists hacked into the phones of high-profile figures and even victims of crime.

11. Actually we can hope
she sings a coloratura songbird spectacular implicating Murdoch family members directly. Members of the Praetorian Guard dutifully fall on their swords but usually the Caesars go free.

Murdoch would also be arrested.
Looks like the Police Commissioner will be the next person to resign along with this side kick.

14. ExNOTWjourno2 on Twitter...
says "I guess Murdoch is Immune from Arrest"...

She's known for writing in code using capitals and anagrams...so I wonder if that means one of the Murdochs is MIA (that is fled the UK)..?

22. The police commissioner has resigned, according to Sky.
I think there is a lot more to this story than just the phone hacking.

15. They are saying that a Sunday arrest might be a way of stopping
her from testifying. Unsettling conspiracy theories from commentators on Sky TV

17. Here's the problem
The police commissioner spent five months recuperating at a health spa resort linked to Wallis

Wallis was hired as a consultant by Scotland Yard
http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2011/jul/17/met-chief-face...

The Chairman of the parliamentary committee should recuse himself
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/phone-hacking/86...

This is one sordid incestuous mess among the political elite and major democratic institutions.

18. Makes sense. They have American legal people advising them
We're famous for "I cannot comment on an ongoing Police investigation"

16. Do they wear orange jump suits in London?



I would love to see Murdoch dressed that way.
All in good time, all in good time.
