Wapping Year Zero

Bent coppers, bent journalists, unsolved murders, the manufacture of evidence, the well-connected raising walls of silence that can't be breached: it's like we're all living in a David Peace novel. So far at least we retain the hope that some of the right people will get their comeuppance, though we all know what happens to those hopes in Peace's novels. You do have to wonder though what the hell News International thinks all the journalists who were until yesterday working on the News of the Screws are going to do now.
