Which British politician has Rupert Murdoch met most?

Brown-Smiling

Yep, Gordon Brown.

Let's record for posterity that during his evidence to today's special meeting of the Culture and Media Select Committee Rupert Murdoch said:

(a) The British politician he met most in recent years was Gordon Brown;

(b) At those meetings Brown never once raised phone hacking;

(c) Their children played together;

(d) Their wives became friends;

(e) Like Cameron, Brown preferred Mr Murdoch to enter 10 Downing Street by the back door.

It puts all of that faux outrage from Brown, last week, in perspective.
