Two years in prison and/or a fine.

And 'cos she's one of Cameron's pals, she'll be out after say 4 months...

Either way, it's nice to see scum like her brought up against the courts.

Its not just Brooks, its the other 6 as well. They are all a bunch of scummy hacks who have been parading about as respectable members of society.

I wonder if they will suffer the tough justice so often heralded in their newspapers. Bread and water, No cushy life in prison for them. What's good for the goose.
