£10.8m? How many bodies do you have to know the burial locations for to receive this amount of money?

It's a much, much higher figure than people previously estimated or expected.

With a bit of luck, Rebekah (who has previously been arrested for domestic violence charges) won't get to spend much of it following the trial for conspiring to bribe public officials.

Good catch OP!

I think we all realized she must have been privy to boatloads of sensitive information, but nothing says cram this wad of cash into your mouth and shut the fudge up like that payment. That's almost deserving of the Keanu Reeves "whoa" sound.

This class of 'celebrity/media/financial leader' only operates with a contractually obligatory 'golden parachute' and (usually) complete personal indemnification for anything which you or I would be ruined over.

Check every fortune 1000 company, every university, every NGO, every non-profit that collects millions... you will find that ALL their executives are free from any care about such trivial things as "getting caught."

Same goes for politicians and their favorite lawyers and judges.... who see eye-to-eye on the entitlement such protection represents... they are (and conduct themselves as) "royalty lite"

It has always been so.

Redheads eh, spitting image of my two ex's.
I reckon she will end up doing time for what she has done.

She resigned and still got compensation in the 8 digit range?

Only in the corporate world.

I'm not so sure. She deserves it but I think even with the supposed cooling of her friendship with David Cameron, she's still got many cards hidden up her sleeve. She's a bizarre woman who seems to live a pretty charmed life and constantly lands on her feet. I'm fairly sure £10.8m has bought her even more influence.

I don't understand Murdoch's fondness of her. He looks like George Burns ballsack but, given his money and influence, he could 'buy' as many relationships with women as he wanted. She wasn't even particularly good at her job and it's doubtful she's got more on Murdoch than he could fabricate on her.

What's the going price for falling on your sword to protect your scumbag boss? Apparently, £10.8m.

Didn't she get arrested for paying police?
Anyone know the max sentence you can get for that?

10 years and an unlimited fine, apparently. It was only brought in in the last days under Gordon Brown. It would have been a nicer ending if it had been one of the first things Cameron did and he unknowingly sealed the doom of one of his closest friends.
