"Coulson apologises over David Cameron assignment"

From the BBC:

Ex-News of the World editor Andy Coulson has apologised for working for David Cameron as his director of communications.


"I am extremely sorry I worked for him. It was the wrong decision," he said. He spoke after being found guilty at the Old Bailey of conspiring to hack phones between 2000 and 2006.


Labour leader Ed Miliband said: "This wasn't just a serious error of judgement, it was the third strike - after working for the gutter press and hacking phones - which made Mr Coulson look pretty much unemployable."

Mr Coulson started working for Mr Cameron in 2007. He was taken into Downing Street in the same role after Cameron became PM in 2010, only to resign in disgust in 2011 amid the row over MPs' expense claims.

TS, thanks. It was a bit obvious but somebody had to say it.
