Did David Cameron Know About Phone-tapping? Another Watergate?
The UK Prime Minister David Cameron was previously director of corporate affairs for the television company Carlton, now part of ITV (one of the main
UK TV channels) from 1994 to 2001.
Cameron appointed Andy Coulson as director of public communications 2007-2011. Coulson was the editor of the News of the World newspaper 2003-2007.
Coulson has been arrested by police investigating phone hacking allegations at the newspaper. The hacking operation involved tapping of senior UK
The Sun, another newspaper owned by the same proprietor as the News of the World, recommended that it`s 3 million readers vote for Cameron in the
general election in 2010.
Cameron recently postponed an independent judicial enquiry into the hacking operation.
Cameron also recently over-rode the advice of his senior policemen re the investigation of the death of a child after The Sun recommended that the
investigation should be modified.
It seems that there is an unhealthy association between the behaviour of Cameron and the proprietor of The Sun and The News of The World.
Cameron has worked in the media prior to becoming Prime Minister and there is a possibility that the UK electorate was primed to elect him as Prime
Minister by these newspapers as the proprietor had some hold over him.
This may be because the proprietor of the newspapers seduced Cameron. There are many in the medical profession who feel that Cameron may suffer from
narcissistic personality disorder, or as Lord David Owen a former psychiatrist, described as the Hubris syndrome.
This consists of the following:
' A narcissistic propensity to see one's world primarily as an arena in which to exercise power and seek glory
' A disproportionate concern with image and presentation
' A messianic manner
' Excessive confidence in own judgment and contempt for advice
' Exaggerated self-belief, bordering on omnipotence
' A belief that one is accountable solely to history or god
' Loss of contact with reality; often associated with progressive isolation
' Restlessness, recklessness and impulsiveness
