  8. fred says:

  9. Andrew King says:

    My name is on the list as an “ordinary member of the public” who has been spied on, my phone was hacked by Mulcaire, I have been visited 4 times by the MET, why is it always the celebrities who seemingly have a platform?

    Why have you not displayed the whole list?
