Who killed Sean Hoare?
Not me, said the drink, though his liver I did shrink
Not I..said the press, though we made him a mess
Not us said the coppers, though he wanted to shop us
Not me said Murdoch, though he mired me in muck
Not us said Cameron and Coolson though that would be fun
It was I, said MI5.. Would I tell a lie!
Who killed Sean Hoare?
……………………. apologies for the doggerell
Chief suspect so far is not Murdoch’s mafia, but MI5, the huge secretive control apparatus dedicated to protecting the criminal British State and ruling class.
from..death of News of the World whistleblower “not suspicious?”
By Chris Marsden 20 July 2011 The morning after Hoare’s body was found, former Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Paul Stephenson and his former deputy, John Yates, were to give evidence before a home affairs select committee. Stephenson had tendered his resignation Sunday and Yates Monday. They were to be quizzed by MPs on their failure to pursue any serious investigation into phone hacking or on the bribing of police officers. This was to be followed by the quizzing of News Corporation head Rupert Murdoch, his son James, chairman of News International, and former News of the World editor Rebekah Brooks.
The death of Hoare means that his testimony will never be heard by any such inquiry or, more importantly, by any criminal investigation that may arise.
His public statements to date—coming from within News International, News Corp’s UK arm—are highly damaging. Last year, Hoare gave interviews to the New York Times and the BBC in which he said Coulson knew about hacking that was “endemic” and part of the “culture at News International.”
A week ago, Hoare told the New York Times about journalists making payments to the police, and about the use of “pinging”—locating people via their mobile phone signals, a technology supposedly to be used only for anti-terror purposes. He alleged that News of the World executive Greg Miskiw had used such techniques. He said journalists were able to purchase the mobile phone tracking data from police for £300.
A Guardian report also notes that Hoare’s body was found at 10:40 am, but “It was not until after 9 pm, two hours after news broke that the phone hacking whistleblower had been found dead, that more uniformed and plainclothes police arrived at the scene. At about 9:15 pm, a police van marked Scientific Services Unit pulled up at the address, where a police car was already parked.”
The immediate response of the Hertfordshire police was to issue a public statement declaring his death to be “unexplained but not thought to be suspicious.” The statement is at the very least extraordinary, and at worst sinister in its implications.

The British establishment have been quick to close ranks in attacking Sean.. a mere ‘Arsenal and Labour supporter’ and ‘drunken hack’. The police persecuted him from the start, treating him as a criminal suspect. The newspaper NOWS paid him to mix with celebrity coke addicts then fired him for complaining .
