James Murdoch snippet

This already came out the second time Murdoch Jnr was in front of the DCMS committee, but page 279 of the rather ace Dial M for Murdoch is worth a read. In it Tom Watson recounts a conversation with Neville Thurlbeck in which NT says that Tom Crone told him he was going to have to show the 'for Neville' email to James Murdoch. NT said he also asked Crone afterwards if he had done so, and Crone said yes but it would be OK because they were going to settle.

It doesn't prove anything, but it is a reminder that one of those right in the centre of those JM/Crone/Myler discussions told a third party at the time that he HAD told James Murdoch about the email.
