UK PM in new tangle over phone hacking
London: British Prime Minister David Cameron is ducking new questions about text messages he traded with Rebekah Brooks, the former chief of News Corp`s UK newspapers who faces charges linked to the country`s phone hacking scandal.
Opposition Labour Party lawmaker Chris Bryant today demanded to know whether some messages had been withheld from the country`s judge-led inquiry into press standards because they were "too salacious."
Cameron said Bryant had previously made untrue claims about the saga. "Until he apologises, I`m not going to answer his questions," the prime minister said.
The inquiry did disclose some text messages involving Cameron and Brooks.
Others were deemed irrelevant to the panel`s role scrutinising links between the press and the powerful in Britain.
