As the Leveson Inquiry continues into Press and Ethics today, the Former Editor of News of The World Rebekah Brooks faces questions from Robert Jay QC relating to the role of press and politicians. She quit as chief executive in July 2011 after the phone-hacking scandal led to the News of the World's closure.
Robert Jay QC, focused on two threads of questioning; the level of contact from politicians following her high profile departure from News of the World and her 40th birthday party thrown by Rupert Murdoch which was attended by Tony Blair and David Cameron.
Mr Jay then asked about her 40th birthday party and the politicians who attended.
Focusing on the direct communication via text with David Cameron. She denied reports they texted each other 12 times and day. But when pushed by Mr Jay, she said "David Cameron signed texts with 'LOL', which he thought meant 'lots of love', until she told him it meant loud out loud."
It was confirmed that David Cameron also sent a message to Brooks via an intermediary explaining that he could not remain loyal to her publicly, because opposition leader Ed Miliband " had him on the run" over his cosy relationship with top people in the Murdoch empire. The case continues.
