It's not easy to say Olga. It depends how you look at these matters.
I start with The Dirty Digger taking a position that Gordon Brown was unelectable. His next idea is what's in it for me. So he cons Mr Cameron that switching his support to the Tories will win him the election and thus he can trade the switch for favours to his companies. Mr Cameron falls for it, shakes hands on the deal which has no witnesses, and, despite failing to win the election, finds himself in Downing Street.
The BSkyB is launched and Vince Cable is given responsibilty for smoothing it through but sensing that he might get himself in the **** with it he arranges for a journalist to tape record a statement about him being at war with Murdoch and frees himself from the risk of ending up Mr Cameron's fall-guy. Mr Hunt is chosen for the role having previously expressed his support for the bid in public and in a memo to Mr Cameron. His bias is the opposite of the bias Mr Cable had taken pains to express and thus avoiding responsibilty for the bid.
Mr Hunt now realises that he is the mug in the middle so he gets his special adviser, the unfortunate Adam Smith, to do the dirty work on his behalf so that his hands are kept clean in case things go wrong. He claims that he could exercise his "quasi-judicial" ministerial function by setting his bias to one side. Every time he claimed this in his evidence, which was often, he placed his hands to one side of the witness desk as if to demonstrate how the trick was done. When he referred to his support of the bid he placed his hands to the other side of the desk. It was very amusing I thought.
Things went wrong when it was found that poor Milly Dowler's phone had been hacked which led to the Leveson Enquiry. The phone hacking business was being fairly quietly buried due to pressures caused by the police being too busy preventing terrorist action and going to parties. But the hacking of Milly's phone outraged the nation's sense of decency and Mr Cameron panicked and set Leveson in motion much to the Murdoch's disgust.
Mr Osborne meanwhile had planted a very controversial tax change into his Budget concerning "charities" so that he could take some of the heat off Mr Hunt by announcing the cancellation of it while Mr Hunt was giving evidence.
Mr Cameron then decided that no further action was needed relating to breaches of the Ministerial Code presumably knowing that Labour had also engaged in the same sort of things, indeed perfected them in the deal between Mr Blair and Mr Murdoch, and that a few indignant outbursts from Harriet Harman were manageable with the Queen's Diamond Jubilee festivities in the immediate offing.
Mr Kenneth Clarke told the Enquiry that the influence of the newspapers in deciding election results is grossly exaggerated and that Labour won in 1997 because the Tories were hopeless and lost in 2010 because Labour was hopeless and that Murdoch had nothing to do with either result and merely talks up his influence for commercial reasons and conned both Mr Blair and Mr Cameron into giving him something for nothing. Mr Clarke is, of course, the Prime Minister we should have had in place of the two spinning machines aforementioned.
Her Majesty has Her own way of letting the participants know what She thinks of their sordid activities.
As a matter of some interest it came out in the Enquiry that Mr Blair never owned a mobile phone while in office and nor did he personally send any e-mails or text messages which could be traced to him.
It's better than going to the zoo to see the monkeys.
What we are eagerly awaiting is Rebekah Wade/Kemp/Brooks' exercising her right to a fury hell cannot match in return for being scorned.
