Andy Coulson to Give Evidence
Severin Carrell of the Guardian has confirmed that Andy Coulson, ex-editor of the News of The World and currently the Conservative Government's director of communications has been called as a defence witness.
"Tommy Sheridan named Coulson today in a revised list of defence witnesses who also included Glenn Mulcaire, a private investigator who was jailed for six months in 2007 for phone-hacking voicemail messages for NoTW"
Having the Tory equivalent of Alistair Campbell being cross examined by Tommy Sheridan should make for, to say the least, an interesting day in court.
