#Hackgate:"Rebekah #Brooks vetoed BBC man and told David Cameron he should give No10 job to Andy Coulson"
Disgraced former News International boss Rebekah Brooks intervened to persuade David Cameron to make ex-News of the World editor Andy Coulson his spin doctor, it was claimed last night. She is understood to have urged Mr Cameron to scrap plans to give the job to a senior BBC journalist. Mr Cameron was told it should go to someone who was ‘acceptable’ to News International. The disclosure increases pressure on Mr Cameron over his close links to Mrs Brooks and the Murdoch empire.
