Clearing the decks OR rats deserting a sinking ship?

Clearing the decks?

Brooks/Coulson TRIAL September 9th 2013.


David Dinsmore is to replace Dominic Mohan as editor of the Sun newspaper.

Mr Mohan, who has held the post since 2009, is to move on to an advisory role for the chief executive of News Corp.

The move comes as part of a series of changes following Rupert Murdoch's decision to split his newspaper business from his film and broadcasting interests.

Mr Dinsmore, 44, is a former editor of the Scottish Sun and will take up his new role on Monday.


On Tuesday, May also denied that the former News International chief executive, Rebekah Brooks, put her under pressure to reopen Madeleine McCann investigation.
May told the Leveson inquiry that she had spoken to both Brooks and the editor of the Sun, Dominic Mohan, about the McCann case on 11 May last year.
Robert Jay QC, counsel to the inquiry, suggested the review was ordered at short notice and "maybe the same day".
May said it was not ordered at short notice, adding that the Home Office had been in discussion about the possibility of a police review for some time, even under the previous government.
Jay asked: "Did Mrs Brooks say anything, words to this effect, that unless you ordered the review you would be on the front page of the Sun until that happened?"
May replied: "No, neither Mrs Brooks nor Mr Mohan made any indication of that sort to me. The nature of the telephone conversation was to alert them to the fact that the government was taking some action, that there was going to be this further work by the police here in the UK."
Asked whether May had discussed the issue with David Cameron on or around 11 May, the home secretary said: "I don't recall having a specific discussion with the prime minister. I know the prime minister was interested in this specific issue but I don't recall whether I had a specific conversation with him."
May confirmed it was a telephone conversation "at my instigation".

Brooks was asked about the McCann review when she appeared at the inquiry on 11 May.
Asked whether there was an ultimatum or threat to the home secretary, Brooks told the inquiry: "I'm pretty sure there will not have been a threat, but you will have to ask Dominic Mohan."
Brooks said it was not true that she had intervened personally with the prime minister and threatened to put May on the front page until the paper's demands were met.
"I did not say to the prime minister we would put Theresa May on the front page every day. If I'd had any conversations with No 10 directly they would not have been particularly about that," she said.

Seems like Mr Mohan, like Brooksáwas a central figure!

Move him on, BEFORE 'perverting the course of justice' trial STARTS!
