BLAIR ADVISED BROOKS TO ORGANISE 'HUTTON STYLE' HACKING INQUIRY

CHELMSFORD, ESSEX; BUCKINGHAM, BUCKS; CHIPPING NORTON, OXFORDSHIRE Former Prime Minister Tony Blair secretly advised Rebekah Brooks how to organise a 'Hutton style' inquiry at the height of the phone hacking scandal, the Old Bailey heard today (weds). In an hour-long phone call to the embattled News International chief executive, Mr Blair suggested an independent inquiry that would investigate her and clear chairman James Murdoch of wrongdoing. According to a bombshell email written by Brooks herself, Mr Blair likened the suggested probe to the Hutton Inquiry which he ordered in 2003 into the death of Dr David Kelly. That inquiry, chaired by Lord Hutton, cleared the Labour government of wrongdoing, but was widely criticised as a whitewash that pinned most of the blame on the BBC.
