Politics Weekly podcast: Spotlight on Cameron as Murdoch eats humble pie

Rupert Murdoch and his son James pleaded ignorance of the full extent of the alleged illegal practices taking place at News International at a dramatic appearance in front of the culture, media and sport select committee.

The session, disrupted by a slapstick assault on the elder Murdoch, yielded little new information but kept up the pressure on David Cameron to reveal exactly what he knew about his former spin doctor Andy Coulson’s reign as editor of the News of the World.

Martin Kettle, Julian Glover and John Harris discuss the damage the affair has done to the prime minister and how he can move forward from it.

Also this week: as Westminster was captivated by the phone-hacking drama, the rest of Europe continues to search for a solution to the crisis at the heart of the single currency.

With so much at stake, the panel discuss how the traditionally Eurosceptic Conservatives are being forced to embrace further European integration in order to stave off a financial catastrophe.
