When David Cameron says Andy Coulson was very 'proper' in how he conducted himself as Communications Secretary I think that is actually a fair comment. We had terrible arguments from time to time, but he was always basically fair.
This is what most thought in 2005. Lots of newspaper journalists hacked. Clive Goodman [News of the World Royal Editor] got caught, there was no point arresting hundreds of others as it had stopped and it was time to move on.
