At this very difficult time for himself and his family Rupert Murdoch has issued a statement asking that the public and news media respect their privacy stating that they need space to themselves to get through these trying times, it's only fair right?

"Don't imagine this act of defiance will be painless or without consequence. Already a senior Miliband aide tells me they received a "very hostile" threat, not veiled at all, from a News International journalist warning: "You have made it personal about Rebekah, so we'll make it personal about you." Braggadocio maybe, but as the recipient of the threat said: "That's how they operate." And it can be terrifying. Bugging, blagging and Benji the Binman send shudders down many a spine. The spell is broken, but the terror may not be over"

The above is a quote taken from the most recent Polly Toynbee article on this scandal. Even now News International are still trying to bully people and even now people still fear them.

This is unacceptable and now is probably our last chance to bring Murdoch to account. I would call on every member and supporter of the Labour Party to contact the party leadership and offer their full support and solidarity to anyone threatend in this manner and ask that the aide concerned make a full public statement which details who made the the threat and when.

For members and supporters of other parties I would urge you all to contact your party leadership and offer your full support to anyone threatend in this way by News International and demand that they name names and make full public statements on every threat they receive.

Everyone has to stand together on this. We can beat Murdoch and the disgusting rags he publishes.
