Former Scotland Yard commish Stephenson was to have testified today before another HoC cmtee, have to track down whether or not his resignation yesterday scotched it.

PM David Cameron is flying back early from a South African junket to make a statement, as calls for his resignation start surging after Stephenson's resignation.

Stephenson basically said the PM was more crooked than he was in his resignation speech. Having hired a tainted Murdoch exec himself, Stephenson said the prime minister's own tainted Murdoch exec was even stinkier than Stephenson's own, so stinky that Stephenson felt as top cop he couldn't share info freely with the PM. Excellent. Excellent.

Cameron, on the road in South Africa, responds to Stephenson's veiled accusations, quite clearly and effectively:
