David Cameron Defends Himself In Phone Hacking Scandal

The British Prime Minister took to the floor of Parliament to defend himself against allegations that—at the very least—he showed poor judgement in hiring Andy Coulson, the former News of the World editor who was arrested in the phone hacking scandal, and—at the very worst—his staff attempted to stop an inquiry into the phone hacking scandal as a political favor to Rupert Murdoch. Cue the delightfully outraged harumphs! British Parliament is like a very polite Thunderdome.
