The reason it's still in the news is that not everything has come out yet. People in high places (in govt, in the police, in News International) have lied and covered up. They need to be exposed.
The reason they need to be exposed is that members of our police were in collusion with journalists who thought they were running the country by controlling our politicians - politicians who we voted for in our 'democracy'.
If I wanted Rupert Murdoch to run my country, I'd vote for him by buying all his newspapers and buying every Sky service there is. But I don't want him to, he seems a pretty unsavoury character to me. I dunno, maybe I'm just overreacting a bit?
If you're bored with it all, just carry on buying The Sun and enjoy being breast-fed by p3. Simple!
