Even as she looks forward to a possible jail term, Rebekah “I have snakes growing out of my head” Brooks can at least be glad she’s picked up about $16 million for “loss of office” from the Wizened of Oz’s rancid empire. She will also have “all legal and other professional costs” paid for by News Corp, as they will no doubt add up to fucking millions as she fights the various court cases she is enmeshed in because of alleged criminality at the News of the World and News International. The laughable bit is that overall, the NI Group reported a loss of £189.4million after tax. This deficit stemmed from £250million worth of charges relating to the closure of the NotW and legal bills relating to the phone hacking of murder victims and other police probes. All of which occurred during Rebekah’s “Reign of Evil!” Incidentally, her golden parachute dwarfs the £2million compensation handed to the family of Milly Dowler, the 13 year-old murdered schoolgirl whose phone was hacked by her paper. It’s also a third of the entire amount paid to the hundreds of staff who lost their jobs when the News of the World was forced to close. Who the fuck says crime doesn’t pay?
I'll take care of everything, Rebekah!
