This branch notes:
The 'Hacking' scandal has done far more than expose what a filthy rich, anti union, anti poor, bastard Murcdoch and News International are.
It has exposed that, even in 'democracies' like Britain, real power actually lies in unelected bodies among massive multi-national corporations and the state. It has, in an instant, exposed the corrupt relationship between the media, state and politicians.
