Default Hugh Grant turns the tables beautifully on a phone hacker. Pure class.

After a chance meeting with a former News of the World executive who told him his phone had been hacked, Hugh Grant couldn’t resist going back to him – with a hidden tape recorder – to find out if there was more to the story . .

But do you honestly believe it's genuine? Some of the language used is more likely written than spoken. I'm not wholly convinced. Revenge it may be, but not necessarily truthful.

Just because it's not the Daily Mail...

Just curious - do you think the situation was fabricated or that Grant embellished? I'm pretty convinced that someone will insist on hearing the original and I'm pretty sure The New Statesman with all the attention on this story will have vetted and corroborated this 100%.

Indeed, after all the New Statesman is a bastion of impartial, non-political and without agenda journalism
