TS: "Ten years ago you were at the heart of Wapping. You were part of the illegal culture of phone-tapping that has been widely criticised."
BB: "No, I was not."
TS: "You are now the editor of the Scottish News of the World. Is it your position that the illegal culture of Wapping is not practised here in Scotland?"
BB: "I don't think there was any such culture in Wapping, and it's certainly not conducted in Scotland."
TS: "The message from the top of your organisation was to get Sheridan at any cost, whether by legal or illegal means."
BB: "No, that's not true."
TS: "Are you insisting that neither you nor your staff instructed (private investigator Glenn] Mulcaire, or any other private investigator, to carry out such activity?"
BB: "I certainly did not instruct that. I have no knowledge of that."
TS: "There was no four-year affair with Fiona McGuire; that's why she did not make the call. There was no visit to a swingers' club with Anvar Khan; that's why she did not make the call."
BB: "History will show Anvar was telling the truth, though."
TS: "There was no visit… you know that."
BB: "You know that is a joke."
TS: "You are squirming in the witness box."
