Discussion about the phone-hacking scandal continues unabated through the Leveson Inquiry and recent witness Paul McMullan, former deputy features editor of the News of the World, has given evidence that many will no doubt find shocking, upsetting and even outrageous.
In defending the measures used by the newspaper, Mr McMullan claimed: "In 21 years of invading peoples' privacy I've never actually come across anyone who's been doing any good.
"Privacy is the space bad people need to do bad things in. Privacy is for paedos. Privacy is evil; it brings out the worst qualities in people."
